I created Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day two years ago in Ruby’s memory to celebrate torties in all their uniqueness and beauty. I’m hoping that every year on April17, the internet will be flooded with photos of torties. 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. Let’s bring awareness to these often misunderstood cats and their tortitude.

Visit the official page of Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day for more information.

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 right 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!
