It’s here! Today is the 3rd annual Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day! Arguably, for those of us who share our lives with torties, that’s every day, but today is the day to bring awareness to these beautiful, often misunderstood cats and their tortitude.

I created Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day in 2020 in Ruby’s memory to celebrate torties in all their uniqueness and beauty. Help me turn Facebook, Instagram, and any other social  networks you’re a part of brown, tan, gold, black, cinnamon and all colors in between today!

Create your own Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day Photo

If you’d like, you can use our Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day logo to create your own photos. Simply click on the image below to download a blank frame and use your favorite photo editor to create an image with your own tortie. All I ask is that you don’t alter the frame and leave the copyright and URL at the bottom of the frame in place in anything you create.

Use hashtag
with your social shares

On April 17, the internet will be a more beautiful place because it will be taken over by torties!

Allegra is ready to celebrate and hopes that you will join us!
