Momma Tortie





























The first time I saw this beautiful girl was back in early December 2006. According to local "legend", she was an indoor cat until the tenant moved out, leaving her locked in the apartment. After that, she was on the streets. She is about 1-2 years old.She is a larger cat, very long luxurious fur, beautifully and vividly marked. When you pick her up, she is floppy and snuggly. She is a very mellow cat, calm and quiet. She purrs a lot and enjoys being close to you. She follows me everywhere, quietly, just to sit near my chair or whatever. She is also very poised, walking and sitting like a show cat. Very good catitude.She was groomed when they treated her for a mammary infection from nursing her new kittens (4 weeks old), an upper respiratory infection, and an eye infection. They thought she had a heart defect, but a sonogram showed it to be the harmless type. Whoever adopts her can have all these papers so they don't need to have these expensive tests run again.She had a litter of kittens a few weeks before Dinah had the Mites. They are absolutely gorgeous. Then, after Dinah had the Mites, Momma Tortie had a second litter: Baby Tortie, Baby Tuxie and Baby Socks, who are also looking for homes. They are now 4-5 weeks old.We are in the far west Houston Texas area, beside Katy and Sugarland, and looking for a home for this gorgeous girl. If anyone would be interested in a very well behaved older cat, please email me at mlgigg AT sbcglobal.net.

Another surprise from Momma Tortie tonight. She came over while I was lying down, watching tv, and jumped on my chest. She put her head on my shoulder and started purring. She has got to be on of the biggest, sweetest cats around. I do think all these kittens make her a bit nervous. (they make us nervous sometimes, ha ha).

Awww! I think she's trying to tell you she wants to stay...ahem...instead of BJ, lol. She loves you...that is too sweet!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hee hee, she really does love me and she really does want to stay. What is funny is, if BJ and I are snuggling and sleeping, Momma Tortie will carry in one of her babies, usually Tippy, and plunk him right on top of BJ. Then she'll try to "nose" BJ aside and then she'll get up on my chest to sleep. Think she's trying to tell me something?????
I want to find this beautiful flopsy girl a home so bad. She needs more attention, she needs to play, she's never gotten the chance to be a kitten.

Like we've said before, if only we didn't have this problem. If only people would just spay and neuter their kitties. If only people would not dump or mistreat their kitties. If only...
