Odd to see a female orange tabby. They are usually male. But this is precious. Hedgehogs are the cutest things and cats are just the best mamas. I had 3 orphan kittens and my neutered male took over their care. He couldn’t nurse them of course but he groomed them, cuddled with them, and gently disciplined them when they got out of hand.

That is what I was thinking.

We’ve had a female orange tabby for 10 years. When we see a new vet we hear, “Oh, female orange tabbies are very rare!” She’s a sweetie and her name is Ginger.

We have seven indoor cats, with two neutered males. The “alpha” of the two is a major caretaker. He bathes all of them, although some aren’t always receptive. His focus is on etiquette in the litter boxes. He’ll supervise the “business” and check to be sure everything is covered properly.
