Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Pumpkin

This week, we're excited to be taking part in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, sponsored by our good friends at The Cat on My Head.  We asked our gorgeous and adoptable pal Pumpkin if she'd be our model.  And as you can see, she was more than up for the challenge.  Here's Pumpkin's selfie:

  
This gentle and reserved girl is pretty unique, according to the rules of cat genetics. Did you know that only 20 percent of orange tabby cats are female? And since long hair in cats is a recessive genetic trait, the fact that Pumpkin is a longhaired orange female tabby cat makes her even more special.

Pumpkin: Whew. All this talk about genetics and percentages is making me kind of tired. What do you say we just wish everybody a peaceful, easy Sunday?

Sounds good, Pumpkin.  Have a peaceful, easy Sunday, everybody. :)

She's a beautiful girl. We didn't know the percentages, actually, though we did know most orange tabbies are male. We sure hope someone falls in love with her soon and gives her a fantastic and true forever home!

Awwww Pumpkin is so adorable. I didn't know that about orange kitties either. I know long haired orange babies are somewhat rare, but when I stop and think about it, I have never seen one. Now I have.

She's beautiful! I'm a sucker for orange cats, and have always heard that orange females are unusual (both of our orange cats are male), but I didn't know how rare until I read this post. Thanks for the orange info! Our foster girl, Pansy, was the first orange female I ever met.
