at the end of Fae's last vet appointment the vet commented on how surprised she was about Fae's temperament. she gave 2 reasons for that: 1. many of the Devon Rexes that she treats around here have really bad temperaments for some reason (???); 2. she's a tortie. she mentioned "Tortitude" and said that Fae seems to be pretty good about it. my response was "Tortitude? she's got it! lulz" seriously. behind her oh-so-sweet exterior is a cat with a lot of self-confidence and a very strong personality and i can't help but attribute that to her tortieness.

je la fino de la lasta vizito al la bestkuracejo la bestkuracisto komentis la temperamenton de Fae. ŝi diris, ke ĝi surprizis ŝin du kiale: 1. iale multaj DevonReksoj, kiujn ŝi kuracas havas malbonajn temperamentojn (???); 2. ŝi estas "tortoiseshell"a* kato. ŝi menciis "Tortitude"** kaj diris, ke Fae ŝajnas tre afabla. mi respondis "Tortitude? ŝi ja tion havas! MDR" vere. malantaŭ ŝia ĉarmega eksteraĵo estas kato, kiu havas multege da mem-fido kaj ege fortan karakteron. laŭ mi ŝi verŝajne estas tiel pro ŝi estas "tortiseshell"-a kato.

* "tortoiseshell"a kato estas trikolora kato, kiu ĉefe havas nigran pelton miksitan kun bruno kaj ruĝ/oranĝkoloro. oni ankaŭ nomas tiajn katojn "torties".
** "Tortitude" estas kunmetaĵo de "tortie" kaj "attitude" kaj ĝi temas pri la kutima karaktero de "tortoiseshell"-aj katoj. en kelkaj landoj oni diras, ke tiuj katoj havas vere unikan fieran agmanieron.


  1. Yup, you looks like you haf tha TAT attitude, from one tortie to another.
    Love & Purrs,

  2. Yep, those torties sure let you know who's boss!! Our Zoey is a torbie...a striped tortie...and she's got major torbitude!!

  3. My Mommeh says I have a typical "calico" attitude. I think calicos and torties are pretty closely related!

  4. You've got tortie from somewhere :-) Cute photo..with strong eyes. It matches the story :-)

    Thank you for your comment in Japanese. It had a face must be very familiar with the language!!

  5. Love your photo. You look awesome Fae.

  6. Yes, theese "Tortitude" does look good on ya! You go girl! We'z glad everything went so well at the vet and tell your Mom that I agree there should be a society for dark-nosed kitties as well, and if there was...I'd like to be the Treasurer of it...

    Sincerely, Cloon
