I first met Admiral Hestorb, a gorgeous tortoiseshell lady, on Twitter at the beginning of August 2011. We discussed the formation of a group of tortoiseshell cats, a subject she had considered with others before. The alliance would celebrate the beauty and elegance of tortoiseshell, calico and torbie cats. The Admiral and I were marvelling at the range and intensity of the tortoiseshell colours and she referred to all of us as 'ladies of autumn'. This pertinent description of our lovely coats provided the obvious name for our group. My next posts will consist of a photograph and description of each of the members of the Ladies Of Autumn (known on Twitter as #TLOA).
