Furball of the Month: Daisy

Written by

Ho Chi Minh City’s Animal Rescue & Care is the proud host of a cat at the top of everyone’s adoption wishlists, Daisy. But, before you think about adopting a tortoiseshell cat like Daisy, you should know about ‘tortitude’.

Tortitude (adj.) — a temperament unique to tortoiseshell-coloured cats, which sometimes makes them crazy, batty, cocoloco or just plain weird.


As a Yahoo! Answers commenter wrote, “Though most veterinarians will deny that there’s any link between colouring and personality, most tortie owners will disagree completely. Black cats seem pretty sedate, if a bit aloof, gray cats tend to be very friendly, orange or ginger cats often are very affectionate, tabby cats are playful and torties are weird... They will tell you when they want to be fed, they will tell you when they wish to be petted and woe to he that will not obey the little angel’s commands!”


And Daisy is certainly a little energetic oddball, running around, climbing on things, nuzzling legs and leaving little hairs all around. Something’s driving her, whether it’s a strange smell or just a general case of the crazies. She’s going to get into trouble.


As the commenter wrote in closing, “You cannot tame a tortoiseshell. You can only choose to be amused.”


She’s active, spayed, fully vaccinated and waiting for you to take her home today. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make your date with kitty destiny.
