Nutmeg - joined October 2011
Hi Guys! Bess has suggested I seek your expert opinions! I didn't know what a Torbie was, so I Googled it... I think Nutmeg might be a Torbie, what do you think? She's a tricolour, red, peach and black. She was picked up from rubbish bins by the side of the road in Elche, Spain, in September 2004. She is very cuddly and talkative; she's certainly not afraid to ask for what she wants! Do you think she qualifies as a TLOA? 

We do!


  1. Ahhh! She's gorgeous, autumnal and she has the infamous tortie-tude! As far as I'm concerned, she is a Lady Of Autumn.

  2. We are like the many different leaves of da same tree, each one Bootiful in her own right ^..^
    Me say "Welcome" to Pretty Miss Nutmeg ~
