A Tortoiseshell is not a breed but is, instead, a reference to the coloring of their coat. According to the book 'For The Love Of Cats' Tortoiseshell cats have a coat with a combination of any one solid color and red or cream. These colors may be completely mixed as in brindled tortoiseshell or separate as in patched tortoiseshell. The solid color may be black, brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, fawn, or golden.' Torties are almost always female.
