An Exceptional Cat


I titled this post, “An Exceptional Cat” because:
#1 Piper is very beautiful.
#2 Piper is very friendly and sweet.
#3 Piper is a tortie cat with none of the tortie attitude! She’s the happy exception to the tortie and calico cattitude rule.


She was a difficult cat to photograph. As soon as I sat down next to her, Piper was determined to get into my lap. She’s six years old, and you won’t find a more affectionate cat!

What’s your experience? Do you think there’s a link between markings/coat color and temperament?

  1. What a sweetie pie Piper is! She sounds so sweet and her coat is gorgeous! I love her markings. Purrsonally, I don’t think there is particular link between markings/color and temperament. Every kitty is unique ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Piper is beautiful and SO sweet! She’s a lapcat extraordinaire, to be sure, and we love these photos of her. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Purring and praying that she finds her happily ever after very soon.


  3. Piper, you are such a gorgeous kitty. You have a stripe down your face just like our Split. How great that you are so pretty and a great disposition too. Split likes to be loving too but don’t think she would do it with a stranger. Hope she finds a great home soon.

  4. She is pretty. I too have a tortie who is a love and I had two calicos who did not have attitude. My tortie now is interesting because her coat is the tortie pattern, her breed american bobtail. Bobtails like to be around people but aren’t known to be lappers or want to be held, but my tortie loves to sit on laps and be held. so she breaks the rules for torties and american bobtails ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Piper is gorgeous indeed!

    Thank you so much for your comforting words when we lost Moe unexpectedly, time will heal us hopefully.
