Approximately 80% of all ginger cats are males.
Practically all tortoiseshell cats are females. The likelihood of a male tortoiseshell cat is very rare and if one does occur it will be sterile.
One female cat can in just five years be responsible for 20,000 descendants. Please have your female cats spayed.
Un-neutered male cats are more likely to be involved in road accidents than neutered males as they wander around more looking for females. Please have your male cats neutered.
Although most cats love milk, many cats find the lactose in milk difficult to digest. This can lead to stomach upsets, particularly diarrhoea. If you want to give your cat milk, please buy milk specially formulated for cats, available from most pet stores.
