Meet our new catkid, Callie, adopted on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2020.

Callie is a tortoiseshell cat, which these cats are known to be frisky and fun! Yep, no doubt about that!!

Tortoiseshell cats are affectionately known as “torties” and come with “tortitude” (sassy and somewhat aggressive). What distinguishes tortoiseshell cats is their patterned coat – not their breed. Tortoiseshell cats are not a breed and most torties are female with the males being extremely rare.

Tortoiseshell cats are known to be good luck worldwide, according to legend, and in the U.S. they are believed to be “money cats” and bring good fortune to their home.

Our two-year-old Callie is a high-energy cat and keeps us on our toes! She is a delightful animal and helps fill the void due to the loss of our nineteen-year-old, Amanda.

Even though we’ve had to cat-proof our home, we have no regrets. Welcome to your new home, Callie! 


A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…family, travel, and writing, and promoting others. Welcome to my blog, Moonwashed Musings.
