My name is Derrick, and I write for Simply Cat Care. My goal with this website is to help cat owners with simple and actionable advice.

4. TORBIES

Torbies have a lovely autumn brown and red coat. They are a type of tortoiseshell cat, and not necessarily a ‘breed’ per se.

Most torbies are female due to genes. It is rare that a male torbie or tortoiseshell cat appears.
