They are called red, orange or ginger cats, and they seem to be everywhere - especially the males. The red gene is carried on the X chromosome (so males need only one copy of the gene), and the red overrides other colors carried on the other genes. One more fact: Red cats arose in Asia, but the main spread of the color started with the Vikings.
So a bit of facts on how we glorious, gorgeous ginger are what we are.
Weekend is almost here. Maybe we can get mum to stay home for a bit with us. She keeps coming home and going off to see Grampie. When she comes home she is bummed out. Grampie has improved a bit, but is also very confuzzled as to where he is. That makes mum sad.
The place where Grampie is has kitties in it though! So it must be a good place to be. Mum says she won't take us to visit as we are not Grampie's kitties. Plus we might run off and get lost in the building or get in a fight.
Four kitties live here, mum has seen two of them. Two kitties per floor, girl kitties on Grampie's floor and the boys live upstairs on the second floor. They get to wander all over but they know not to get on the levitator to change floors. Mum hasn't been upstairs to see the boys since Grampie is on first floor. Bunzer the other kittie on the first floor mum has only seen once wandering around.
Mum says this is Schatze, pretty, long haired kittie. Really soft to pet. Mum even took some treats along to give to her.
They have a little room towards the front that people can use to visit and watch TV. Here is the food and water bowl, a kittie condo and the necessary box is behind the plant!
Hope everyone has a good weekend. We are going to see if we can cheer up mum some.
