Read Thread: Today is Ginger Cat Appreciation day (with links!)
Yup! (Well, Albany.) A local rescue, Happy Cat Rescue, often puts their cats in my local Petco, and they come up with some pretty great names for the cats! I hope whoever adopted Beverwyck didn't change it. (To be honest, I throw the name around once in a while because I'm secretly hoping someone will say, "Beverwyck? How funny, that's my cat's name. He's a ginger tabby I adopted about 8 years ago," and then it will turn out it's the same cat.)
(When I adopted my cat from them a few years later, his name was Lovey--a fitting name, but not that interesting. I changed it to Cricket, a name which suits him well!)
Doesn't it always happen that way? They wiggle their way into our hearts whether we want them to or not.
As with all beings, it’s all about personality!
In my experience, orange cats are the bestest — like yellow labs. One of our cats, Dash, is a long-haired, peach-colored love. He comes when called (even from across the yard), will carry on a conversation with you, and will lay on our younger son's stomach/back whenever the son is on the floor. He definitely knows who he belongs to!
Maybe it's just me, but I think ginger cats are better mousers.
CSK, if my pure white serial killer could reach you right now….!
Ender is a handsome fellow. Sorry I missed the actual day...I'm currently on my third ginger - all females. My vet shared that 85% of ginger cats are male and our current orange lady "Summer" was the only female she had in her practice.
Almost all calico cats are female. Of the very rare males, all but 1:3000 are sterile.
