Winston Churchill thought so and requested in his will that a ginger named Jock always live at his house in Kent. The Daily Mail is reporting that Jock VI, a rescue ginger, moved in at Chartwell, Churchill’s house, this month.
Our human is also enthusiastic about gingers. A long time ago, she shared her home with Jimmy Buffett, who could be called a “dilute” ginger (he was a buff tabby from the Humane Society in Sarasota, Florida). When I showed up, I was the only ginger. Then Huck was born here three years ago.
And then we got the Cheeses.
Robin has outdone Churchill.
Brie was cuddling with Robin while Becket slept on the couch. Brie kept sneaking glances at Becket, and finally he scooched across two cushions to ask for a little forehead grooming.
What bliss for a kitten.
Because we have one fewer hour today than we usually do, Robin started working around the house as soon as she finished feeding all of us. The first load of laundry revealed that the dryer is broken (we smelled the gas…). She’s heading for the laundromat to dry all of her clothes.
In the meantime, Cheddar helped with the hand washing.

I just joined Instagram! This is my first #catsofinstagram picture.
Becket loves to cuddle with Robin. He always knows if Robin’s not feeling well, and he helps her feel better.
Becket OWNS the bed.
My human’s friends are working to help out a kitty in need. The little guy has incredible spirit, so much that his nickname is “Dom” for indomitable. He also has a family that wants to adopt him. His family is in West Virginia, however, and we are in Texas. His family calls him Cinnamon, and they are eagerly awaiting his arrival.
ARF, the organization that is supporting him, will send him on a flight to Pittsburgh with a volunteer. This, and his vet bill, are pretty expensive, so we are helping them raise funds to get this kitty with great spirit to his home.
Cinnamon’s foster human will be leaving for a long trip, so he needs to head for home soon.
We thank everyone who’s helping Cinnamon. If you can help, too, he’s got a YouCaring page with a link to donate to ARF and see more details on him and even some videos my human took.
You heard it here first! Meggy and Cheddar LIKE each other!
We have a pretty big family, but still, each of us shares something special with our human. She is so cute! We’re glad to have her, especially on lazy weekend days when she stays home with us.
Robin says we have special moments every day.
Although it seems she has taken a million pictures of us, some of the special moments are unrecorded, like her favorite moment of the weekend: when Brie presented his forehead to Becket for grooming, and then the two of them relaxed together with her.
At first, Brie seemed to be staring at Becket, but it turned out that little Brie was unhappy with Soft Kitty staring at him, not with Becket! When Brie got up from his pillow, Robin thought she was going to have a tussle between the biggest Cheese and the biggest of all of us. Her heart melted when her two big kitty men relaxed together. She totally missed the shot so she could let the moment happen between them, and she’s glad she did.
We are all getting used to the Cheeses being here.
The Cheeses are generally nice little boys, although they just don’t have any boundaries. I was an only kitten, and abandoned early as well, so I have no idea what it’s like to share everything with anyone.
I do love my human.
We all love OUR human.
I just heard that today is National Ginger Awareness Day.
The humans created this day to celebrate people who have red hair. Apparently, red hair in humans comes from a recessive gene and is disappearing in their populations.
Ginger is not disappearing in OUR population.
This is a momentous moment for me, for Robin, for the Cheeses, for Reggie, and for all of my Cuddle Family.
That’s Cheddar in front, but don’t look at him. I know it’s hard because the Cheeses are so cute, but look past him and past Bleu’s ears too. (I know, they’re cute too!).
Yes, that’s ME on the left and REGGIE on the right. Me on the same bed with Reggie. You never thought you’d see it! There’s something about having all these Cheeses around that has helped me stop hating Reggie quite so much. I still can’t say he’s my pal, but I can walk by and not shout at him now.
This is a moment for the cat behaviorists to study.
