Patches is a beautiful 2 month old tortoiseshell. She was born on 11 Jan 2017 and got her name from the unique patches on her fur that makes her look different everyday. You will never get bored watching this little one play. Sometimes she looks gold sometimes brown and sometimes gold& black. She is a fluffy cat with the softest fur.
Although timid, she is also very gentle and friendly. She is a perfect lap cat cuddling on your lap for a nap and running to greet you after a long day.
An interesting fact about tortoiseshell cats is In the folklore of many cultures, cats of the tortoiseshell coloration are believed to bring good luck.Dating back to Celtic times, tortoiseshell cats have been perceived to bring good fortune into their homes. Even today, the Irish and Scottish believe stray tortoiseshell cats bring them luck. In the United States, tortoiseshells are sometimes referred to as money cats. Source:Wikipedia
Patches was born in a very much protected environment and has not been exposed to the wild world. I would prefer she is kept as an indoor cat with space to run around and play. I am very strict about not caging my fur kids and hope you don’t cage them. Cats are curious animals and are constantly exploring their surroundings. Give them space to walk and run around. But also remember to kitty proof your house.
I have given them their first vaccinations and expect their new parents to follow through with all vaccinations and also neuter them at 6 months. Taking care of fur kids is easy. All they need is some food, lots of love & attention and they will be at your side all their life.
Lastly it would be great if she has another partner to play with at home. If you dont have any, please consider adopting another kitten once Patches has adjusted to you. Cats are very social animals and it is healthier to adopt two so they can have another cat to play or interact with. Especially if you are busy at work or otherwise most of the day :)
