Thanks! They're really fun to be around, very affectionate and mellow. They're litter-mates, obviously-we took in the three of them when they were babies. Even now, at 20+ pounds each, they still love to sleep together in a big pile, groom each other, play together and just act like brothers.

Thanks so much!

They are soooooo cute!

The question we are all wondering about:

are you able to tell them apart?

Usually, yes, and if not at a glance, pretty quickly. They all have slightly different builds and faces, and quite different mannerisms and voices.

it's hard to say with torties, they already have the double x chromosome so the two-face thing is kinda common with them. if she were a he, there'd be a very high chance of him being a chimera, but being female i'd have to have dna tests to know for sure.

she seems to have a split personality, so maybe she is! haha

Her coat pattern differs from right to left also which is why I thought she my be a chimera.

i thought she was at first, and kinda think she probably is, but i read up about torties and chimeras and apparently you can't really tell just by their coats. one of her sisters (there were 5 total in the litter) has almost the exact same half-and-half coat. what's funny, is that of the litter of 5, four were girls and all torties, the fifth was a boy and he was as orange as an orange cat can get. the shelter named him sunny because he was so bright in a sea of black cats haha.

Not mine, but I took care of this little lady for a couple weeks while we tried to find her a new home after she showed up at my wife's place of employment.



They're not allowed on our lease, but I like having a cat so here's the current model:



It's louder, way more expensive to feed, and less affectionate, but I have a cat. Easy to please.
