One year ago I adopted Jubilee, a calico cat, and her kitten Katniss, a baby tortie. Katniss is all grown up now, but she still likes to cuddle with her mama.

This is Katniss the kitten. She will turn a year old in three weeks, so she won't be a kitten for much longer.

This is Jubilee the calico and her baby Katniss, the tortie who is using her for a pillow.

I love all kinds of tortie and calico markings, but this one is really amazing.

We got a new kitty back in November. I was looking at Maine Coons and I saw her and had to have her. My older two still are not quite amused at her presence. But they are starting to tolerate her. I let my son name her so we now have a Princess Leia in our household. We are now a two Tortie household.

My oldest Neona being none to amused with having the kitten next to her.

My middle child, Ember.

Calico or Tortie? Body is like a Tortie but face is like a Calico. Nevermind cuz it's all good. Sweet and demure and loves me. I raised her and her two brothers since birth and I love them as much.

Betty loves chin scratches. Going on five years now. Still likes to retrieve just not as often.

Ten years ago, I was in my last year of college and completing an internship at a domestic violence shelter in Lansing, Michigan. The shelter manager there asked me to help her find homes for the litter of kittens living on her porch; she wanted to bring them inside, but her son's dogs were not cat-friendly. She was particularly worried about a tortoiseshell kitten that was super sweet and cried for attention whenever anyone was nearby, and Michigan winters are very cold.

I wasn't sure how my other cat, Ella, would respond. Ella is a rather fractious special cat, but it was just her and me living in an apartment, and she'd previously lived with adult male cat friends. So I brought home the tortie kitten and figured my parents would take her if it didn't work out. I picked up the kitten from MLK Avenue in Lansing and drove to the pet store during a blizzard to get some kitten chow.

The little tortie became Ella's best friend and has continued to be a sweetheart for ten years. I named her Tinky, short for Tinoket, which means baby girl in Hebrew. Tinky has no tortietude and loves everybody. She loves to cuddle and investigate and be an ambassador to all visitors. Here's to many more years of loving companionship with Tinky!

Dear Smidgie.

I relented and let you play with Da Bird. You yanked it away from me, dragged it to the other side of the room in hiding, chewed the string off the wand and ate half the string.

This is why you cannot have nice things!

Back into the fridge it goes!

Hi all,

I've convinced a friend to join this comm as she's been adopted by a feral tortie mama, who has been bringing her little tortie (and ginger) kittens to be fed and cuddled. Maybe we'll get to see some pictures of the cuties soon! In the meantime, here's my tortie, Tinky the sweet cuddlebug.
