Lordy, Lordy it's a Torbie

Yep, a torbie. Tabby + Tortie = Torbie. I know, from the front, she looks all Tabby. If she ever stops running around, I'll get a picture of her backside so you can see her torti-ness. For now, just trust me, she's a Torbie.

She's not our first Torbie. Perhaps you recall a little cute-pie named Tressa Lovejoy

So what's her name? I'll announce the names after you've seen the whole brood.

  1. I love blended kitties. We have a Tortie/Siamise I call Cheesecake, but my hubby calls Toasty for she is the color of a toasted Marshmellow.

  4. Tressa was a torbie? I would have called her a calico- a mix of orange, black and white?

  5. I am currently owned by a torbie. I'm betting this little lady has a whole lot of spunky-tude. She's just beautiful...but then all ibk's are!

  6. Linda -
    A calico has distinct patches of color. A tortie has multiple colors too, but the colors are blended.

    Tressa didn't have solid patches. She had blended patches of color like a Tortie, in a distinctive Tabby pattern, so was a torbie.

  8. Is Torbie an actual color name? Like calico or tiger?

  9. She is awfully cute, but I'm not sure she matches Tressa-- but Tressa hasn't been replaced as my favourite yet, so I'm a little biased.

  10. Oh, there is a torbie at our house too!! All stripes but in calico blocks. And all tortie-tude too. :)

  11. She is beautiful...but so serious, like her brother!

    Do I have a Torbie??? A Tuxtie? She has perfect tuxedo markings, but where her fur is not white, it is blended tortie colors. I've been calling her a tortishell tuxedo...And she calls me staff!

  12. You can actually see it from the front. The black 'necklace' stripe has a segment on the center left that's red and not black.

    I think the technical term would be "Tortoiseshell with white" - Tuxedo is an unofficial name for a "with white" that has the paws and shirt front white.

  14. Anne, I agree... A very serious kitty.

  17. oh my word... SO CUTE!!! something about black noses on kitties is just so darling! And she looks like a serious boss-lady! If she's got brothers, i'm betting she bosses them around!

  25. I want to boop that little black nose and make her go all cross-eyed (and then scritch her belly!)

  26. I don't know if it's because the Furmans were so goofy and playful, but these cute little newbies do indeed look very serious! This baby girl kinda looks like a mouse with that nose; adorable!

  27. Look at that face - so cute. I didn't realize I have a dilute torbie until I saw this picture; mine has similar markings in the face and legs, and then her back has the dilute tortie coloring.
