Tiger remains focused on Ceiling Cat totally unaware that the authorities have finally caught up to them after their string of cat burglaries.

My 4 kitties are fixed females and they all have jobs. I like it when cats have jobs.

OMG, what lovely little cuties! Congrats! (Or... con-cats? :)

But are we SURE Laurencia isn’t really “Lawrence?” The red tabby gene is typically sex-linked to males. It is unusual for a female cat to be that pretty red-gold color.

Good question - I'd heard that myself. Either way, marmalade kitties are great!

Yay kitties! Congrats, Martin, they’re beautiful cats.

In my experiences, all five orange cats we’ve had over the years have been male (including a Marcy who became a Morrissey when my mom discovered he was a he). Laurencia, from the picture looks to have some female daintiness, though, so she may break the mold. Well, if not, it’s an easy name change to Laurence. :D Either way, congrats, again, and make sure to get them their official laminated licenses to zot ASAP.

Yay for kitties! Two beautiful girls, Martin. Enjoy your slavery, it's the best kind.

Word of advice on Laurencia -- orange kitties, in my experience, are a bit touched in the head. But in a good way, to be sure. I had to put my orange boy, the late great Rocket J, down this March, after 14 years of pure delerious goofiness. Truly odd, quirky, and completely memorable characters. Congratulations!

My brother has a gorgeous red tabby female — they aren’t as common as males, but it isn’t unheard of.

Some background on the girls:

Emily is a 4½ month old kitten who almost died when she swallowed some dental floss that wrapped around her tongue and intestines.

Her family had opted to euthanize her, but the veterinarian asked Emily's owners to surrender her to the veterinary clinic. The vet then performed life-saving surgery on Emily and she successfully recovered in a foster home.

She has a stately, though friendly, way about her.

Laurencia (f.k.a. "Shiba Inu" due to her reddish coloring and corkscrew tail, f.k.a. "Jenita") is a 3½ month old fuzzball who was rescued from a local shelter when her time was up. Her markings look like she has some red Abyssinian in her lineage. We're told that she's a very people-oriented kitten who loves to talk. She definitely was the more gregarious of the two during our two hour-long first meeting.

We're not sure what caused Laurencia's "corkscrew" tail, but it looks congenital. She also came to us with a slight runny nose/sneeze (maybe she's allergic to us), which is damn cute. She's already taken to curling up to sleep on my chest when I lay on the couch.

I have a soft spot for the stubby tailed kitties of the world. ;-) When I was ten I got a black and white kitten that had just a little powder puff of a tail. Mom was apparently a manx, and most of that litter had little to no tail.

He was *such* a pretty kitty, with a real personality. He also had an odd gait — hopped like a rabbit. I adored that cat....

If anyone has kitty litter/litter box recommendations, we'd love to hear 'em.

The brand we're using now is of the clumping variety, but is unscented and doesn't mask odors very well. We were told that some cats won't use scented litter.

Also, if anyone has any real-world experience with their cats using this brand of "automatic" litterbox, I'm all ears!

Re: Female Orange kitties, I have one, and my vet’s assistant tells me that orange females are notoriously bossy. Mine definitely runs the herd, and is a character. My two hapless boy kitties take all kinds of guff from the Orange One and her female sidekick.

Allergies are more pronounced witht he reddish orange fur color. I have a cat named Mister Crookedtail who has four 90 degree bends in his shortened tail. I thought perhaps someone had slammed a door on his tail as a kitten, but the vet told me it is a spinal defect and not as rare as folks think ... tail anomolies are spinal defects. Crook, BTW, is an extremely intelligent cat, and vocal only when he is giving orders or asking where everybody has gotten off to ... though neutered he’s the alpha male of my two guys. I have a large orange mixed-breed (Goose) who is six years younger than old Crook who is sixteen now. Your girls are beautiful and very alert!
