Happy ginger cat appreciation day!

Today is all about feline red heads! If you have a ginger cat in your family, what better reason for extra play time together in celebration of your fabulous friend! Did you know that ginger cats are more likely to be male than female as they only need the ginger ‘O’ chromosome from one parent whereas to be a ginger female cat, you need to have it from both? Heard that ginger cats can have a reputation for being more feisty? Their behaviour is actually much more likely to relate to their breed (ginger is not a breed), their early life experiences and their parents’ temperament. Famous ginger cats? We’ve come up with Garfield, Crookshanks from Harry Potter and Puss in Boots from the Shrek films. Can you think of any more?
