As said on the front page, this group is for Tortishell Cat lovers.

Often called Tortie's or Tortie-Cats, they are a type of calico-fur coloring. They do not have nearly as much white as usual calicos, and normally do not have any white fur at all. The tortie-fur coloring can range from either very dark, to very light. The lighter colored Tortishell Calicos I like to call "Pastel Torties". The colors of fur normally range in black, brown, orange, and cream with possible very small spot of white. Most Tortie's look as if they have been splattered with paint in tiny droplets, and you would be very hard pressed to find two Tortie-cats that look alike, they are usually always different!

Feel welcome to join and show your lovely Tortie-cat pictures. Anyone who has owned a Tortie knows they usually gain a soft spot in your heart. Thanks for taking the time to read!

Remember! Try to only post Tortie-Calicos. =P Too much white fur is a normal Calico!

My Sadie AKA (Mercedes when shes good) is I believe a tortie. I rescued the high princess from the evil claws of the humane society many years ago when she sucked up to me in the greeting room. Mnay years later she is the comedian and main entertainment source in our household as she rolls around in life. She has acutally rolled off the fridge into Taco slop, rolled off the counter onto my lap and rolled off the top of the shower into a full tub of water. Shes quite the kitty!
