Furry Friday ~ Cold and Wet Kitties

When I let Rio out yesterday morning, Peaches and Cameo bolted out the door too. It's been nice, spring weather the last few days but they didn't see the weather report before heading outside: wet, rainy and cold.

They stayed outside while I took McKayla to school and stopped at a few stores.

When I arrived home, they both greeted me at the car and followed me right to the back door, meowing the entire time.

They were a little perturbed that I wasn't quickly letting them into the warm, dry house, instead, I was taking pictures. LOL

They spent the rest of the morning giving me evil looks and cleaning. Not my fault you didn't pay attention to the weather! LOL


  1. LOL!!!! You have such beautiful cats! I love their fun and wild coloring. Are they both considered calicoes or is the longhair a tortoiseshell? It's kind of hard to tell. My first cat was a calico and I still love them. :)

    1. Thanks! I like their funky coloring too. :-) Cameo is the calico and I say that Peaches (long hair) is a Tortoiseshell but I could be wrong. My understanding is that a calicos spots are more defined while tortoiseshells have torn patches.

    2. Yeah that's what I was thinking too. Calico all the colors are completely separate, but with torties the black seems to be mingled all throughout. :) We must be correct since we agree hehe.

    3. I'd say that's a pretty good assumption :-D

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
