    Hi Ellen,

    I had never heard that about orange tabby cats. It surprised me because I have a female cat I have always assumed is a tabby.

    She is not solid orange; and the orange part of her is tabby- patterned. She has a white chest, like a beard and also all four feet are white. She has a half-tail with kinks in it too.

    That really makes me wonder about her… Her name is Sadie. Maybe she is only part tabby as I do not recall what color her mother was (she was given to me).

    Very interesting post on my favorite subject – CATS.

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I will be back for more fascinating info.

      Actually Tabby is pretty common as they aren’t really a breed per say but the rarity of an orange being a female are the cats that are pretty much solid orange with maybe a small percentage of white. When I rescued Osca from outside, he was sooo fluffy and his face was so sweet I really thought he was a she. Called my vet to make an appointment to have “her” spayed and I was told that was rare for a female and was I sure! So, off I went to “check it out” and sure enough she is a he!! LOL
