Tortie* Tuesday

Last week, I snuck in to the Stumpy Suite, and there was Roosa sat a  top a pile of blankies, waiting for me. Äiti decided I could stay.
These photos are poor but you can imagine the scene, I am sure. There was ear pointing and hissing. The Stumptress was not happy to see me.
She stayed focused on me.
I very politely had a sniff around and meant no harm.
Unlike Roosa. That Stinkeye could melt titanium.
I politely took my leave. She's scary.

* we know that Roosa is a calico, but that's not a term we use in Finland - and she is a typical tortie so a tortie she stays!

Roosa can be a calico or tortie...whatever she wants! She's got a stinkeye that would melt titanium!

Before Binga, my human had a calico... and as far as personality goes, torties and calicos have a lot in common!

WHAT??? You actually got your turn??? We're surprised you didn't have a cliffhanger yesterday, we would have never thought that you actually got to visit her. Ok, we understand that Äiti didn't plan your visit, unlike Pekka's and Mirsku's, but we're still amazed!

Thank you for explaining the term, our silly Mom was a bit confused about that the other day. Humans. We like the Claw of Doom best, no matter the name of her colors.

Who can resist a pile of blankies?

We say "écailles de tortue" in French "tortoise shell".
She's very pretty! There's a dobbleganger here, over the road.

Calico or tortie, either way she is a cutie.
