Liberty Belle and Freedom Belle (Tortoiseshell Cats)

Freedom Belle is 8 to 12 years old. She was adopted, so I am not sure of her age. She is a domestic short hair Tortie.

I got this precious gal 3 years ago. I was on the internet checking into local Humane Society volunteer work and decided to click on the cat pictures. It was an omen! The first picture I clicked on was almost a duplicate of what my other cat looked like!


She is just a cuddle cat that kisses me with licks.

She was at the humane society for 5 months and was on the list to be put to sleep, since I freed her I named her Freedom Belle and my other cat had the name of Liberty Belle.

Tortoiseshell Cat

Liberty Belle is 4 years old. She is also a DSH Tortie.

I got her on 9/11 the day of my birthday and terrorist attack. I was depressed by tv news coverage. To get out I went to Petco and a man was standing out front giving away 3 week old orphans. I had no intention of replacing my cat that died of old age a few months earlier, but I could not resist, I needed comfort and a birthday gift and she needed a home!


She was a teeny 3 week old kitten and is now a 15 pound gal!

They are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing them and their story with us. I am so glad that the three of you have found each other. All of my babies (kitties) were rescue cats and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. They are all so full of love as I know that yours are too.

Oh, they are both so cute!! I've decided I love Torties. I might be biased since my own cat is a Tortie, but they're soo beautiful and precious to have around!

Liberty Belle is 4 years old, Tortie and I got her on 9/11 my birthday and the day of the terrorist attack. I have since adopted another, Freedom Belle, same breed. Here is Liberty Belle, doing what the "queen" does most days!

Tortoise cats are so pretty, my personal favorites.

I like the names and glad you had something nice

happen to you that day and your birthday.

Mine was a handful she hissed at the Fed-ex guy

and mailman. Allie would throw herself on the glass

storm door and slide down when Fed-ex guy came

HISSING the whole way down. She thought she was

a watchdog...?... (10/25/2005)

Beautiful cats!! My husband used to have a full blood Tortoise Shell for over 11 years. Sugar was the best cat ever!!! But unfortunately we went into the military and we gave her up to a loving home!! Now we have Butterball, orange, fat tabby!!! (10/28/2005)

Very lovely sweet cats!! I have two cats and they are such good company, yet very independent at the same time. Hooray for cats!!
