    She was bought as a pet but she is shown too as she is/was show quality. She's a Premier and weighs in over 15lbs - a very very big girl.

    I know what you mean. She does often look regal even if she is a soft and sweet girl. Not at all regal in personality.

    Thanks. :D

    Beautiful photograph of a stunning cat messyhearts. She is so well proportioned and looks so slender it's difficult to believe she weighs 15lbs. :)

    Yep, I agree. She doesn't look extreme in anyway thankfully. Very lucky to have such a loving and lovely cat.

    Beautiful cat, super-fluffy tail
    By the way, what is the difference between torbie and tortie ? I never know. According to the breeder, my Amy is black silver torbie. For me as a "normal person" :)blink:) she's grey tabby with a creme-or beige looking red. She's a coonie as well.

    It's the same thing - different registries have different terms/names for it all. Torbie is a tortie tabby [a combination of both words]. There are different silvers such as red or blue so a black is the bog-standard silver you often see. So my girl, in those terms, would be a black silver torbie and white but it is called silver tortie tabby and white with GCCF.

    Things to consider:

    • A tortie is a female cat that has random patches of red along with whatever colour they are anyway unless they are a 'solid tortie' where they are black, red and white [also called calico].
    • Classic tabby is a particular tabby pattern. This is the most common in pedigree cats and is where it looks like the cat has a 'bullseye' in their tabby stripes on their flank.
    • My cat is an example of a 'torbie' or a tortie tabby as she is tortie [has red patches] AND is a tabby [stripes].
    • The 'and white' refers to what is often a bib, belly and/or socks in white. A cat that is MOSTLY white would be a 'high white'.
