This is Chloe. She adopted us in 1992 and was with us for 11 years. She was in heat when she arrived at our door and already had a couple of previous litters according to our vet.
We’d never seen her in our neighborhood prior to that day and have no idea how she ended up in our yard. As we were heading out of town for the weekend when we discovered her, we had no choice but to leave her outside. Amazingly, she was waiting for us upon our return. After having her spayed, she became our first calico.
She left us for the RB almost as mysteriously as she arrived. Our friend, who was minding the kitties while we were on vacation, found her one morning lying next to our bed. She had a small amount of blood next to her mouth, but no other evidence of something having happened to her.
Chloe taught us that calicos are mysterious and unpredictable cats, often with bi-polar tendencies. Like Lily Olivia, she often lost her temper and was not the favorite of the other kitties living with us. But, of course, we loved her. And I hope you have enjoyed meeting her.

A beautiful lady cat
such a beautiful tribute
ahhh…sweet Chloe…truly a lovely ladycat…RIP and fly free dear girl
So great to meet Chloe! I had a calico growing up that also had bi-polar tendencies. She didn’t really like anybody, except for me. I miss her to this day, as I’m sure you miss your Chloe. Sorry to hear about her strange and mysterious passing, but so happy to hear that you gave her such a loving home! Beautiful pictures as well.
We enjoyed hearing about your Chloe and really like the art picture you created of her. So sorry to hear of her mysterious passing. We are glad she had your loving home for the years she did though.
What a beautiful kitty and a nice piece of art. Autumn was a calico and she was the sweetest cat. Nothing bi-polar about her.
Oh we are so very very sorry you lost Chloe so mysteriously, that must have been difficult for you…
But yes indeed, we are very happy to meet her – and in such a beautiful way!
What a pretty girl. The Human has never had a calico–they are beautiful! Your mystery girl had a long happy life with you XOXOXO
That is a cool picture of Chloe. She sounds like a great cat…although she sounds like a typical calico! 🙂
What a beautiful, and special girl. Happy Caturday!
What a pretty girl. We know what you mean about Calicos having “bi-polar tendencies”. Coco our Calico is a little strange but we still love her. 🙂
So sorry to hear that Chloe has left you. Sounds like you were both lucky to have found each other and shared some wonderful times together.
Chloe was a beautiful girl.
Beautiful cat! I’m sure she’s watching over you all from the RB 🙂
what a beautiful girl Chloe was and I loved the story. It is as if she was so meant to be with you…….cats find US, we don’t find them.
They choose us – they know where ‘home’ is…
We always enjoy the stories of how kitties come into our lives… very touching post…
Purrs from the Zee and Zoey Gang!
she was a lovely kitty,xx Speedy
Chloe was a beautiful girl and our peeps love calicos too. We are sorry she had to up and leave like that.
Hi Kitties! Would you believe we just realized that we aren’t getting notices of your blog posts? FOR SHAME….I’m so embarrassed that I didn’t just come here on my own even without a notice!! Hope we are forgiven – you know arranging a moon trip is rather “brain-consuming” !!! Loved the story of Chloe…..she was a lucky girl to find you and no doubt had a much happier life with you than she would have had she not turned up out of the blue one day. Nice memories.
Sweet memories of a special kitty. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly
Chloe sounds like a special kitty! Humans are very passionate about calicos and torties – at least that seems to be the case here too!
That place could be called Cafe Chloe! I’ve had a couple calicoes and they are very special cats.
We love calicos and torties!
Loved meeting her!
Calicos are special and not just because they are always female. I’m hopping on the art hop!
What a sweet girl and sweet memories.
And a beautiful Caturday Art post. XO
