My Tortoiseshell cat Pepper amazes me the positions she gets into and then sleeps in them for hours. How she can be comfortable is beyond me. I came in one day and saw her on my daughter’s bed and had to take a photo. she was upside down, then twisted and her head was twisted all the way around and then between her legs which were facing upside down. HOW she could do this I do not know but she slept this way for HOURS!! I look at the photo and it almost doesn’t look real because of the weird position she is in!!! LOL.
Among cat owners there is considerable talk about tortoiseshell cats having a personality set apart from other colorations. This is referred to as “tortitude”. Tortoiseshell cats are said to be strong-willed, fiercely independent, hot-tempered and very possessive of their owners. They are also said to be more vocal and likely to hiss, meow loudly or purr strongly to make their needs known.
