A pretty girl-cat who obviously regards me as a potential mail thief is the Gratuitous Cat of the Week!

And how do I know she's a girl? Genetics, that's how...all tortoise-shell cats are female....

Thank you for this post. It brought a tear to my eye. Our first cat was a tourtise-shell, and she was devoted to us. I still miss her.

P.S. She's definitely guarding the mailbox. Our tourtise-shell attacked a dog that came into the front yard when I was clipping the front hedge.

I'm sorry to screw up your theory, but I am reporting that I have known at least one male tortoise-shell colored cat. -(nullmuse)

Hard to believe, nullmuse...are you sure it didn't have one of those operations they do in Thailand?
