My name is Khaki
We guess that isn’t really fair to say that Orange cats are the best because all cats are wonderful in their own way. But a friend told our human that Orange cats are really good cats. There are four of us that live here and we do love our staff which consists of one person and we think she is the best. We are very attached to our family’s that take care of us and we love to sit in laps. All of us gaze at our Mom very lovingly, even Oboy who is a very feral cat and has really started to get attached to our Mom. I even have started to lie down and let her rub my tummy. And those are all traits of an orange cat.
I, Orange boy, am a total goof ball which is a trait of orange cats. I can do lots of klutzy things that is for sure. I got up on the roof one day and did manage to get down. And when I jump up on something, it is like a horse just jumped up on the table or where ever I happen to be jumping. It is like a tornado hit when I arrive.
My name is Spitters
My name is Spitters and I am a good cat and love my mom to death. I am so goofy that I jump up on the handle of the door to the outside to see if I can turn it and let myself out which I haven’t accomplished yet. But I adore my mom and when she is sitting at the computer I just go over every five minutes and head bump her arm and then rub on her arm. I just want her to know that I am here. My name is Khaki and I am goof ball and sometimes a little naughty. I don’t think naughty is a trait of an orange cat but it is a trait of a kitten. And I am still a kitten because I am not a year old yet. I have an orange cat trait and that is I get into more interesting trouble. I am also a very light colored orange cat so I am not sure what color I am.

So, do you cats or kittens have orange brothers or sisters?? Oh that is the other thing, that most orange cats are males. We did have one female that lived here that was an orange and white cat. Wonder if that counts?? Does anyone know if Orange cats are only males??
Have a purrfect day. Best to you mom. :)
Ok, I had to look it up and it sounds like about 25% of orange tabbys will be female, because a female needs two orange (red) genes but a male only needs one - a female with one red gene will be a "patched tabby" (no idea what that refers to), tortie or calico - so the number of red boys should be about the same as the number of "patched tabby" +calico+tortie+tabby red girls apparently.
(Island Cats' mom here...Wally has such a big head! Yes, it's true, I wanted an orange tabby...I love orange tabbies! But I also specifically wanted a black cat, and that's how we got Ernie! Every cat is special in it's own way!)
Bucky and Simba here would agree that orange cats are the best, but I, being a torbie, would have to disagree. :)
Also, I heard from a breeder friend of mine that it requires both a red male and a red female to produce another red female. She's working on doing that right now with two red Maine Coons that she got specifically for that purpose. She wants a litter of red ones. We'll have to see what happens.
Last time was just a warm-up. Today all (or most) of your animals are being exclusively featured on the LOLSpot today.
Please forgive me if I forgot anyone. It took me a while to read through things and come up with a good synopsis, and then to do the LOLs.
I usually ask a featured blogger to post a link to my site just for the day of the feature. My link is:
You can just add a line at the end of your regular post if you wish.
I have already added links from my site to yours.
I really hope you enjoy these. It truly was a challenge. I don't think I've ever lolled this many animals at once before.
Orange cats are indeed very affectionated and real cuddle cats, at least all the once I know or knew ! Especially with humans. With other cats it's not so easy, they usually want to be the only child. 4 years ago an orange cat choose our house as his house and moved in. He was such an adorable cat, but he was terrible with my cats, he attacked them and was really dangerous. With a bleeding heart I had to give him away to my friend, where he could be an only child and is very happy there.
