Lynley Cannon’s FRIDAY FELINE FACTS & FANCIES, Tortitude

Lynley Cannon, star of the Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, is often referred to as a crazy cat lady herself, but when it comes to the feline species, this sixty-something cat shelter volunteer knows her stuff. Check here each Friday for instructive and intriguing information on our favorite subject: cats!

Tortoiseshell cats are often gifted with something affectionately known as tortitude. The tri-colored females tend to be extremely sensitive to stimulus. Noise, action, even the touch of your hand can suddenly become too much for them, at which time they may lash out like the little divas they purport to be.

    Never had a tortie although when I stayed up the farm the farm cat was tortie and called Marmalade. She did have her diva moments most of the time she was a joy to be with.x😻🐾🐾

    Yes, that does sound a bit like our dear Sister Precious. Trying to comment with my google account since the WordPress comments are disappearing again. Sigh.

    We have a tortie. She’s never lashed out at us, but she does seem overly sensitive to stimuli. We call her our Asperger cat. 😉

    Mom says, the next-door neighbor kitty, Pip, has become a bit more sensitive lately when she gets pets. If you pet her on her side she’ll sometimes give a whap with her paw. Mom wonders if maybe she is starting to have some medical issues. I sure hope not.
