Tortie is our tortoiseshell cat. We adopted her and she, us in 2011. She was at an adoption center inside the Petco in Napa, California where we lived at the time. I was hesitant in adopting a cat after having one that though we loved him immensely, we ended up having to give him up due to behavior issues that we couldn’t resolve. So, along came Tortie. She was sweet, beautiful and we were taken by her almost instantly. She was a year old and had had a litter of kittens. She needed a home and we adopted her. Though I’m sure if you have had a cat before you know they adopt you.
