"My fiance's cat died the last Friday in April. Two weeks later, we had friends over for dinner and had our patio door open as it was a beautiful evening. I saw a black flash go past, thinking it was my little Yorkie. My fiance turned, looked and wondered where this bold cat had come from. Instead of getting startled and fleeing, she spotted the dog food bowl and started to gorge herself. She had no interest in leaving after she'd eaten a bowl full of food and acted just like she'd just returned from a long vacation. My fiance used to be a vet tech and was convinced the cat was pregnant, maybe 2-3 weeks along. The next morning, we thought we'd see if she wanted back out of the house. She would go out a few feet, then turn around and come back in. She seemed far too loving and sweet and well socialized to be a complete stray so we put an ad on craigslist and I set off to the store to buy a litter box, litter and food. We tried to get her to do her potty business outside before I left, but she wouldn't. In the meantime, she pooped behind the toilet, then jumped into the bath tub and peed down the drain...honest! She's obviously a bright cat. When I returned home, she jumped right into the litter box and did her thing. Long story short, someone else posted an ad a few blocks away about another young pregnant tortie. I'd guess they were sisters and abandoned by someone who either moved or something happened to their owner. I now have "Chloe" and seven healthy 18 day old kittens. We have two red tabbies, two medium grays, and three black kittens. I'm curious if any of them will exhibit the tortie color traits. Does anyone know if torties are all black when they are born, taking on color later? Before my fiance's cat died (she was 18) we'd talked about getting two kittens at some point down the road after she was gone. We just didn't expect that the maker of the kittens would adopt us. I'm glad she did, she's sweet, very very smart, loves my Yorkie, and she's the first cat I've ever owned. She's perfect in my mind."
