How about those fabulous Torties! - Page 2

post #31 of 56
I had no idea what a tortie was, but all these cats in the thread look like my Leeloo! does that mean she's a tortie?? my vet just has her down as 'domestic shorthair' and no ones ever told me otherwise, I just describe her color to people as 'highlights' hehe, I'm so new to cats incase you cant tell, anyway! here's pictures of her!

thats her as a baby (8 weeks) the day I got her


here she is at four months:


and here she is at 6 months (she's 8 months now I really need to take more pictures these are my most recent):

Hi Yuna!

Leeloo is a Tortoishell[Tortie] Domestic Shorthair. Tortie is her color - which is Black, dark red and light red. She's very cute.

The cat that you can see in my signature is a Tortoishell Bicolor. Which means Tortie with white.

Hope that helps,

Sam.

Yep, Leeloo is a tortie, and a pretty one at that ! Sam, what's the difference between a Tortoishell Bicolor and a Calico...or are they one-in-the-same? I always know their colors by the "street name", but I'm not familiar with the "actual" name.

Kelly,

Americans call them Calicos but they are called Tortoishell Bicolors here in NZ. Same color though.

Here's my sweet Peekaboo (so named because when we brought her home she hid under my bed, only peeking out periodically... I was only two at the time, and thought she was playing 'peekaboo' with me), she was a dilute tortoiseshell, my very first cat. She was an amazing girl. She passed away a few years ago at the age of twenty. This is the only picture I have of her, I think (the days before digital cameras, sorry about the bad quality), though I think my mom may have a few more at her place in our photo albums, I'll have to ask.

This is Lola.....my parent's tortie.



This is "Mom Cat"....one of the ferals I fostered for awhile. I only had her for a few weeks, but she was very sweet. Her kittens were a lot harder to tame.



And here's one of the feral kittens who turned out to be very sweet too once she learned to trust me. I called her "Freckles" or "Freckle Face" because of the way the markings were on her face.

Beautiful torties everyone I love the term 'tortietude' too.

Here's my sweet RB girl Macumba, when she was about 11 years old



And shortly before she passed, at 17

Beautiful Torties everywhere

Okay, here is my baby Rage


I love the coloring on her face, and chin



I love her fluffy face, and tail too







She used to have a little bit of a torti-tude, but... since she got fixed, she's been just gentile, sweet, kinda timid, but very polite as she's always been...

Mystyc our calico has all the attitude for ALL our cats!!
