Both of my kitty cats are two different breeds but they are both calicos. Fun fact: calico is not a breed, it is simply the color pattern. As you can see, both cats are shades of white, black and tan. Another fun fact: calicos are predominately females as male calicos are sterile; therefore you cannot breed them. So if you have a calico cat, consider yourself lucky!
Breesy girl is 4 years old and she showed up on my porch when I was living in Lafayette, LA. She is named after the New Orleans Saint’s quarterback, Drew Brees. (Who doesn’t love him?) She is the spitting image of me… only she’s a cat. She is sassy, mouthy, moody, and cuddly.
Roux, named after the combination of fat and flour which acts as the base for gumbos, étouffées, etc., is my precious, shy 8 month old kitty. Mitch and I adopted Roux because we wanted Brees to have a companion when we are at work all day. Roux is also quite mouthy and demanding. She is the biggest cuddle bug I have ever met as there isn’t a time she doesn’t want to sit on either me or Mitch.
I don’t know what I would do without these furry little creatures. They make home life so fun and cuddly!
