Rare Kitten Taken in By Atlanta Shelter

Have you ever heard of a "Torbie?"  It's a tortoishell (black and orange) cat mixed with a striped tabby.  Torbie's are almost always female, but an Atlanta shelter got a surprise recently when the veterinarian shaved a Torbie kitten to alter, or fix it.  The kitten turned out to be a male!

To read more (including why Torbies are almost always female) and to see a pic of this adorable kitten, visit this link.
