    Her story sounds like my late Sarah's....she was a tortie and white rescue in appalling condition....she turned into a beautiful cat and lived 'til about 18yrs. We now have Alice (aka Alice Malice and Princess Alice). Full of personality and fun.

    Miss Maple is just beautiful, and by the look on your face, she is keeping you young and happy. Look forward to seeing your quilt and thanks for sharing your little friend with us.

    The vet thought she was about 5 weeks old when we found her. She is now about 15 weeks.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I have a true tortie and your kitty looks more like the calico kittens my tortoise mama cat had. We still have one of her kittens and she's a tortoise. Anyway they are right about the attitude. My girl is very sweet though. They are known for that tortie stare for sure lol.

    I'd love to see a photo of your tortie, is she the blend all over and missing the individual colored patches? Miss Maple is blended on her back and sides and tail but has white feet and tummy and part of her face. Plus she has the black and maple colors on her face and ears and back of her neck.

    When I googled images for tortoiseshell cats, they showed some that look just like Miss Maple plus some with no white at all and all ranges in between. So I was very confused about it.

    I just found something interesting on about.com that says, " It's all academic anyway, because all calicoes are torties, while not all torties are calicoes."

    Here is the quilt, I posted it on the pictures but thought I'd add it here also since this photos shows Miss Maple doing a great job inspecting the binding. Here is the link to the post on Pictures thread : http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ml#post6874630

    Oh gosh she's adorable! Such beautiful colors! I've got one that is determined to burrow UNDER any sheet or blanket. Nothing is safe from him.
