    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    They used to be more common when there were outhouses before the days of toilet paper.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Hey Apache,

    I actually a couple of searches and I can't find stats on all-brown cats. Black and white cats are popular Google entries, even 4-5 pages in. I'll keep a look out.

    When the conversation turned to such things back home, they were referred to as 'brindle.' Seems that term has changed over time.

    From "what color is that cat..."

    Tabbies

    We love tabbies! Tabbies are probably the most common type of homeless cats we see. Tabbies come in lots of colors. The most common is the brown or brown/grey tabby, which generally has brown, black and grey blended together.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Sounds like a tortoise-shell mix. Torties themselves aren't really uncommon, though almost always they are female. They usually are very multi-colored, though:






    There is a gene called a "dilution gene" that causes some torties to have coloring that is still multi-colored, but the difference between those colors is far less pronounced. This usually results in a more gray tint, but I've seen dilute torties, as they're called, that have more of a chocolate color:





    However, there is also a breed called chocolate Siamese, and these often have a cocoa-colored coat, sometimes pretty much all over the body:




    More commonly, though, they have a chocolate-colored face, feet, and tail, and the rest of the body is a lighter tan color, very similar to the traditional "sealpoint" Siamese:




    The give-away as to whether or not you're looking at a Siamese are blue eyes, usually a very brilliant sapphire blue.





    Here endeth your feline lesson for the day.
