#Caturday – When Is A Cat Like A Turtle?


TiffanyDon’t tell Katya, but my favorite cat ever was Miss Tiffany, my torbie (tabby tortoiseshell). I had her for 19 years before she passed. She died 13 years ago, and I still miss her.

Here is a wee little Wiki article about tortoiseshell cats.

Here is a longer About.com article about tortoiseshell cats.

Here is WAY MORE than you want to know about tortoiseshell cats.

It’s partly in honor of Tiff that I have a tortoiseshell cat in SAGE. Partly not.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character happens on an unusual cat.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Cats are just like humans. They may be gone for quite some time already, but we still miss them just the same.

      I agree, Mike. In fact, pets of any kind! I even miss our goldfish, dojo loach, and mice. 🙁
