One thing, 80% of orange tabbies are male. I already knew the majority of them are. They’re not sure why, though. I’ve had three orange kitties in my life. The first was when I was eight to 18. It was my & my grandma’s. He had wandered onto our property. We lived in a more rural area just outside of town. We’d often get strays. Though some belonged to somebody & we made sure we got them back to their person. When I was 28 to 30 & living (renting from) with my grandma again, she adopted an orange cat. After I married, I would still see him, when I/we visited my grandma. 2 1/2 years after my husband & I married, we adopted our first kitty together. An orange male who was four. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge a couple of months ago. He was 19 1/2. All three of them were major loves. Several of the kitties, at the shelter where I volunteer, have been orange. Orange ones also tend to be more mellow. Please go to, I Heart Cats, to read the rest of the list.
