Crockett's mom recently posted that today would have been his fifth Gotcha Day. In honor of Crockett and his Gotcha Day, his mom created the Wear Orange for Crockett blog hop.
Our housemate Toby of course wanted to honor Crockett and the wishes of Crockett's mom. So, Toby asked his humans to find him something orange to wear. We did just that. This is for you, sweet Crockett.
On behalf of all of the rest of us, our resident orange boy Evan is also here to honor handsome Crockett.
Crockett, everyone in this community will always remember you. Your memory will live on and on.
Our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers remain with Crockett's family. What a sweet and handsome angel the Rainbow Bridge gained. The Rainbow Bridge must have needed Crockett's bright and lively soul, and it is surely all the more bright and lively in his presence. Crockett, we know you'll be watching over your family, until you all meet again.
Did you know?
Did you know that over 75% of orange tabbies are male? This is because the gene for an orange coat falls on the X chromosome. A male is XY in terms of chromosomes, which means a male needs only one X chromosome with the orange gene in order to have an orange coat. This is in comparison to females, who are XX in terms of chromosomal makeup. This means that females need two orange genes in order to display an orange coat.
