How about those fabulous Torties!

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
The wonderful picture Liz posted of her beautiful SiSi, it made me realize that we have threads for just about every cat color permutation, but I had yet to see one dedicated to the beautiful, underrated tortie!

I'll kick it off with my girl Abbie. When I first moved to Chicago, I had little money & no furniture. It was me, a blanket, and a B/W TV. When I found out I passed my nursing boards, I didn't go out and buy furniture or a color TV. I got Abbie. Nineteen years later, she's still with me.

Here are her baby pics:

a little older:

for a couple of years I had a roommate who had her own cat. Poor Emily. Abbie was a young cat, and Emily a senior. This was the only type of interaction they had for two solid years:

Now she's a senior citizen herself. Her health is failing, and I see her lose a little ground every day. I felt the need to start this thread before I only had sad news to share. Here is a pic from a few months ago:

Now, calling all torties!!!! Let's see these beauties!!!

Kelly, Abbie is so very very precious!!! You can tell from the pictures that she has quite a personality! Nineteen years of having that sweetheart with you - that is so wonderful! It kills me to hear that her health is failing. I am so sorry. I really wish cats lived much longer than they do. But I have to say - the last picture you posted is my favorite. She has obviously gotten more beautiful with each passing year!

Her'es Paige, My little attacy kitty, that my mum loves so well (She calls her a raccoon, why, I do not know.)also known as Jubb Jubb, the lover and protector of Gibby Bippits the tiny, from Mean Miss Hiss.

Showing some tortitude (daddy, take a shower, you stink!)

I am known as the sleeping perch of the pigglesnort.

Having a bath

With her one remaining soft claw after she learned not to scratch..

Plotting something..Note, the chair of doom she prefers sitting under.

And I have some of her playing but I think that's enough.

You can hardly see it but Isis is a diluted Tortie. She looks all gray in pictures but she is actually black, gray, and small amounts of orange. She is my lover girl! I've had her for 4 years now I think. GOSH has it been that long? how time flies when you have a great thing!(or four in my case!) Yes it has been four because Twig is going on 6 so she will be about 5 next year. WOW! anyone seen my brain!?

I can't share anything for this thread, but I have to say that I adore torties, and particularly dilute torties. They are all SSSSSOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL! Every one of these beauties in this thread deserves to be admired and adored.

This is Nakisha.... she passed away shortly after her first bday. Her bro passed on shortly before she did. It was very upsetting since i had not seen them in 8 months.... Her bro passed on before I came home and her a week later. She was very sweet and Im sorry to say these are my only pics of her....

I do have one more but i cant find it right now...

I love torties.

Abbie is sooooooo beautiful. In about 13 years my Mystyc will be 19. I'm sorry your girl is old, but I am so happy that you and her have a wonderful relationship It makes me so happy when people have their cats(or any other animal) for their whol lives. Let her know she has a new fan.

Paige She's so beautiful.

I just love that kitten pic of Doku, what a cutie.

Cindy's so beautiful

Nakisha was beautiful. I'm sorry she's gone.

All the torties are so beautiful.... I've got a few of MyRage, I'll just have to add them to Photobucket.

Here is a couple shots of Titsi.. the photos were severely browned with age (Apparently the early 80's-late 70's were not a kind era to photos..) She was a goddess.. I miss her dearly (and I was still a baby when she died..)

My lovely dilute tortie girl.. RIP
