Ella has very interesting markings for a tortoiseshell. Usually, the torties are strongly orange and black, or grey and buff dilute torties. But Ella combines elements of both; her coat is buff and black, with typical tortoiseshell mottling and a mostly black tail.
At just about 1 year of age as of this writing (mid-March, 2009), Ella is a sweet girl, but she’s on the shy side with us. That’s not unheard of, especially as she’s so new to Tabby’s Place. We know that she’s lived in a home with another cat before, and reportedly the two got along well.
Because Ella is timid, we think she’d do better in a home with no small children, at least as things stand now. If you’re in the market for a pretty little tortoiseshell, come in to check out our Ella!
