Hopefully this will go on today. I work with a TNR colony of cats and see many, as they get older, have black fur turning red. (I don’t think it has much to do with the sun). One particular cat had long hair with a black head, hind legs and a huge mid section that was all rust colored. He seemed okay but within a year or so turned completely rust colored and then vanished. I think it might be some kind of vitamin deficiency or a lack of the special care these animals would get if they were owned by someone. I hope the lady took him to a vet for some testing just because he is a pet and not too old.

Comment on Are Tabbies More Intelligent Than Other Cats? by NitaCat http://www.paws-and-effect.com/are-tabbies-more-intelligent-than-other-cats/#comment-53488 Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:54:00 +0000 http://www.paws-and-effect.com/?p=4452#comment-53488 I believe cats are like people, some are smart in some ways, some in other. All have so many different personalities. I had one who seemed to be knocking on the door when he wanted in. This same cat (a tuxedo named Scooby) also seemed to know how to get the television in the bedroom on when I was away at work. I’d always thought I just forgot and left it on until after he passed (at only 5 1/2 from leukemia). I was very emotional about his death and after a short while I would find the television on when I came home from work (again). Again I thought I’d forgotten to shut it off when one day, after tanning on my deck, I’d been thinking of him and I walked into the bedroom and looked out the window. Suddenly I heard the sound of voice in the room and I turned and the tv was on. I just smiled through my tears and said “go ahead and watch it, Scoob.” After quite a while it quit coming on then died. But I believe he was very intelligent even in the next life. They all are special and have special gifts.

But I belong to Facebook groups dedicated to Gingers, Tuxedos and Tortishells. Each group claims that their cats are the smartest.
However, I agree with Thomas and Bella. My Tortie Spicy was very dumb in intelligence but very smart in emotional intelligence. I would almost pass out because of low blood pressure and she would try to help me get up. And when she couldn’t, she would lay by my ear and purr until I was able to get up on my own.
My Tuxedo TC know how to get under the covers of the made smooth bed and has even helped her big brother do it too. But she eats plastic whenever she can get it and then throws up! She hasn’t learned not to do it.
I could go on but you get the idea. Each cat has their good and bad and that’s what makes them so special to us pet parents!
