Pet Adoption | R/F Humane Society: Cayenne, The Sweetest Spice In Town


This handsome little clown is Cayenne – a very spicy name for a very, very sweet kitten. This young boy has been entertaining staff and volunteers alike since he came to the shelter. Upon meeting this candy coated darlin’, you can expect head butts, and nose kisses while he expects chin scritches, butt scratches and feather wand play. You can also anticipate a few zoomies followed by a demand for lap & petting time.

You may have already figured out that Cayenne wasn’t names for his hot and peppery nature; instead his moniker comes from his gorgeous red/orange stripped fur.

Here are some fun facts about orange cats:
  • They are almost always male – up to 80% of orange kitties are boys and no one seems to know why. 
  • Their coats come in 4 different patterns: mackerel, classic, ticked and stripped. 
  • They are often called “marmalade” or “ginger” cats – to differentiate them from traditional black-based tabby cats. 
  • Their color shows up in many different breeds, such as Maine Coons, Persians, American Bobtails, British Shorthairs as well as the Domestic Shorthair. 
  • The orange coat color is due to a pigment called pheomelanin which can produce a color range from very dark red to the gentlest cream. 
  • Winston Churchill had an orange tabby cat named Tango.
Come on out to the shelter to meet this little orange tabby, you’ll find that he’s not just another stripped cat, he’s the sweetest little spice in town!
