This is Squeaky-Girl, our late tortoise shell cat. She was fifteen. We miss her. My husband took this glamour photo. She won a local "Most Beautiful Cat" contest with it.

Only female cats can be tortoiseshell because the coat colour gene is sex-linked & in all cells one X chromosome becomes inactive. Each allele is either black or orange & because the process is random it results in orange and black patches across the body. http://ift.tt/1NSS0uT
