My Molly is a naughty tortie!
Unlike most other tortoise shell cats I've seen she doesn't have big patches of colours, she's mainly black with very subtle brown marbling. But she has a little white chin and a white paw which gives her a pink pad.
I have two other cats, and I know it's wrong but I have a special soft spot for mol-mol.
She and I have a special bond that everyone can see, she even has a special meow that she uses for her mama!

I have a Tortie called Ariel. I have had cats before but I didn't have them for hours at a time. Not Ariel! She follows me around my house. She follows me to the bathroom. She has to sit at my feet or on the desk in my office. Before I go to sleep at night, she hides under the bed because she knows she wont' be able to stay with me in my bedroom at night. In the morning I open my bedroom door and she comes right in meowing and jumps on my bed. I am not sure when she sleeps. What a cat.

I have a Torti also, I got her from the SPCA five years ago, they told me she was about two years old at that time. I believe she was much younger as she grew to almost twice her size since I got her. Her name is Riki and she doesn't let me out of her site at any time, she is totally an inside cat. The last Torti I owned was 22 years old when we finally had to have her put down due to kidney cancer, she too was such a sweetheart and I still miss her. All Torti's are such nice pets.

I have a tortie cat also. Her name is Sephora. She is just over a year old. When I first got her she was grey with light color on her paws. On her first trip to the Vet for her kitten well-visit the tech said "Oh you have a tortie"! I never heard of her type before. I live on a dairy farm. Her mother is all black and her father well who knows. All I can say is my Sephora is crazy as heck, but I love her.

I have a tortoise shell, she's named macy, but she has lots of nicknames. I love her so much. She is turning 6 on the 19th of april. Old I know, but she's the best animal I have ever had in my whole life and I've had many.

Torties are wonderful cats. I rescued my little girl, Alice, froma parking lot when she was just a few weeks old and nursed her. She is an indoor-outdoor cat...a ferocious hunter, but also a wonderful cuddler. She is beautifully coloured, lithe, and graceful. She's 14 years old now and still has a long way to go! She knows she is Queen of the House.
