Cat Mom to a 13 year old Tortoise shell!

Hi there!
My name is Erin and I am a cat mom to a 13 year old beautiful (but Im biased) tortoise shell cat! Chloe is 13 years old, and fits every single stereotype of a typical tourtise shell cat. She is indeed "crazy", moody, possessive (especially over me), feisty, fun, and short tempered! She is also really affectionate, loves to cuddle (specifically on my LEFT forearm facing upwards! LOL) and in between my legs and across my feet; as long as I keep them still or else I may get swatted at! She loves nose kisses, cheek rubs, and head rubs... but god forbid you pet her anywhere past her shoulders or she may just turn around and give you the "look".

I've read online that they call these personality traits "tortitude".. which sums her up pretty well.


Although I've had Chloe for 13 years, I still have so much to learn about taking care of her, especially as she's reached her "old age". Behaviourally she has changed quite a bit in the last year... so I thought it would be helpful if I connect with others who may be experiencing similar things. I also love to get to know other cat owners, and what they do to keep their kitties happy and healthy

if anyone has any questions or wants to know more let me know

I attached some pics of Chloe... hopefully I did it properly!

Oooh, a long hair tortie! Yes, tortitude is real. I've had two of them and one was particularly ... tortitudinous.
