When I saw this cat in Old Jerusalem, I was reminded of my own kitty back home! Like my Hazel, this cat is a tortoise shell or “tortie” and is probably female, as most torties are.
Torties are a combination of black and tan – some more tan, some more black – with some patches of white. This cat’s coloring is very much like Hazel’s – mostly black and with a “collar” of tan on her neck. She was pretty affectionate for an Israeli cat (torties tend to be stand-offish sometimes).
