Eddy, Thimble, and Tonks have all gotten to share some bloopers in the past couple of weeks. Evan got jealous and wanted to do the same. That being said, he didn't want to share any major bloopers, and so he went for some that just had a bit of blur to them. We'll pretend the blurry natures of these is not because the human here had the camera on the wrong settings.
So, here are a couple of somewhat blooperish shots of Evan. For the record, this here mom of his thinks he's still downright adorable. Oh, and try not to be scared by the second photo.
Doodle of the Day
We have another doodle in our log cabin series to share. Today, our tuxie cat tour guide has taken us to the cozy and happily bookish bedroom. He's also decided to take a nap on the bed. The tour of the log cabin will resume when his nap is over.
Did you know?
Did you know that if an orange female cat reproduces, all of her male kittens will be orange? And did you know that if an orange female cat mates with an orange male cat, all of their offspring will be orange? This is all due to the fact that the gene responsible for orange fur in cats is on the X chromosome. When it comes to these sex chromosomes, a male's genetic makeup is XY and a female's is XX. Males get the X chromosome from their mother and the Y chromosome from their father, and females get an X chromosome from both their mother and father. In other words, males only need the one X chromosome from their mother to carry the orange gene in order for them to be orange. For a female cat to be orange, the X chromosomes from both parents need to possess the gene for orange fur. All of this also explains why roughly 80% of orange cats are male and roughly 20% are female. There you have it. That's a brief and probably unintelligible genetics lesson on orange fur in cats.
