Your Pet's Breed
Diluted Torti

How and when did you get your pet?
We foster kittens from our local Humane Society. This is our Diluted Tori, Squeak.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
She doesn't meow, but squeaks with delight when we play with her or when she is playing with the other kittens. She is very gentle in nature and a wonderful kitten looking for her furever home.

Roxy is an 8 month old Dilute Tortoiseshell Shorthair. I got Roxy on Mother's Day this year from an adopt-a-thon at our local pet store. Roxy loves to chase flies and moths, play with her crinkly foil ball, terrorize her doggy brother, pounce on her fake mice and, of course, lay in whatever sunny warm spot she can find. Roxy is very vocal and demanding of your attention. When she is feeling neglected (which is most always) she will climb onto whatever she can get to that gets her as close to your face as she can be and will meow very loudly and pitifully until you pick her up to cuddle and talk baby talk to her.

She likes to play with her mouse and chase leaves. She also loves laying on the deck in the sun.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
She loves to stay in windows in the sun and go outside and chase leaves. She also likes to take all the blooms off the roses. She really likes fighting with the roses. She is the winner of the war on the roses. I lose the blooms.

Your Pet's Breed
Dilute Tortie

How and when did you get your pet?
She was abandoned by her mom in a shed, when the mom felt threatened. She walked out to me, crying pitifully, both of her eyes glued shut, she had barely opened them at the time I saw her. We nursed her and she drank so much and before long was ripping the nipples off of the nurser, and soon she was healthy and ready to pose for this picture. She is one of the five cats who reside with us. In the past she has been very difficult to photograph due to her muted colors. Now she seems to have a good time posing for pictures!

What does your pet like to do for fun?
She likes to lay on the bed and play with the feather I have hanging next to me, and she loves to play with the ferret and the other cats in the house! She even loves the dogs. When she gets up from a nap, instead of stretching, like most cats, she will roll on her stomach and then roll all the way over, like a barrel three or four times and then she will stretch.

Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
She will always be remembered for being that little kitten that fit in all our hands, even though she has long grown out of that stage. She is a very happy little cat, and she brings us lots of enjoyment and loves to share in love and be petted all the time. Her purrs will match that of any full grown lion.
