Are you ready to celebrate the 4th annual Tortoiseshell Cat Appreciation Day on April 17? Of course, for those of us who share our lives with torties, that’s every day, but April 17 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. I think she’d like that every year on April 17, which is the day she came home with me in 2011, Facebook, Instagram, and any other social networks you’re a part of will turn brown, tan, gold, black, cinnamon and all colors in between to celebrate torties in all their beauty and uniqueness!

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. Right click on the image below and save it to your computer, then use the blank frame with 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.

with your social shares

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

Allegra hopes you and your torties will join the celebration.
