Good evening all,
My wife and I have both grown up with cats but have never had one of our own. 11 June 11 we selected a cat from the local SPCA. I guess she had been there for a while as she was "On Sale" for a discounted price.
Her colours were not necessarily glowing at the time, she appeared very active/hyper (terrible house cat), and continuously spoke (meowed). She is mearly a kitten at 6 months old.

We took a chance on her as we didn't want her left behind.
Once we got her to the house, she did a full perimeter inspection, head butted both my wife and I and fell asleep on my wifes lap.

She has been continuously cleaning(licking)/kissing/head butting/ and kneeding the two of us day and night since we got her 3 days ago.

She is extremely fast while playing fetch, very focused and does a small meow every time we give her a kiss (even if she doesn't see it coming).

Is all of this normal for a 6 month old?

She's adorable! I have a Mocha, too (Cleo's real name is Mocha Latte).

She's acting like a typical kitten, you're lucky, some members here would LOVE to have such a loving, lap cat!

I'm not an expert on colors/breeds/types, but I think she's a tortie. Torbie? Torbico?

Whatever. She's lovely. :grin:

Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you have a lovely affectionate little girl, hard to believe she needed to go "on sale" before anyone would adopt her!

She doesn't have a breed - most cats from the SPCA are not purebred, they're just domestic short hair/medium hair/long hair, which means they have no breed and describes their coat length - but she has the color pattern called dilute tortie (tortoiseshell). :)

Greetings! I too am blessed with two very talkative cats. (I think they're learning english slowly.) I have no idea if it is normal, however :/

She's beautiful! I'm sure she appreciates you taking her to a home where she can run around. She probably will be talkative and loving. This is all normal.

She looks like a tortie! We currently have two. Ours are more black instead grey though. Your kitty is very pretty, sounds like you guys got the best deal! She sounds very sweet. Try googling " Diluted Tortie" I THINK that is what color your kitty is :)

Welcome!

You can call her color either blue-cream or dilute tortie. Torties and blue-creams are pretty chatty as a rule, but found blue-creams sweeter in temperament and not as stubborn as torties. I'm wondering if she has some Siamese or Oriental in her as well because of her long upright ears? but maybe she just needs to grow into them. At 6 mos. of age kitties often go through what I call the "ganglies", where one part grows more than other. Not every kitty is as lovey dovey as "Mocha", and I think she was a lucky girl to be chosen and you're very lucky to have such a sweet sweet kitty.
