Tortoise Shell cats are known for their black fur with blends of tan and beige.
This is a portrait that I did of our tortie, Sunny. It is pictured on postcards, with the greeting, Hello.
Some also have some white patches, and somewhat resemble a Calico.
Some Torties also have long fur.
Some Tortoise Shells have mostly gray fur. They are known as dilute or muted.
I have heard that tortoiseshell cats are quirky. Just like any other cat, they can certainly get in to things.
This is from a painting that I did of our tortie, Susie. She has since passed over, but certainly enjoyed living in style while she was here.
No matter their looks, or what they get in to, I love Tortoise Shell Cats. Actually, I love all cats!
