When coming up with a name, I wanted something unique and art related because I'm an artist. There is a color of grey oil paint made from recycled pigments called Torritt Grey. It seemed like the perfect name. Torritt loves to hunt. His first catch was a huge blue jay, which luckily got away. Since then there have been three or four little mice, various lizards (he LOVES lizard tails and will play with them for a good week in the house), moths, flies, etc. He spends days down the street in the scrub on a hillside. Sometimes I'll go to "pick him up." He's beyond a fence so I can't actually get to him, but if I call, he'll often come and is always super sweet when he does. Then we'll walk the block back home together. So I have a new cat and no regrets. He has been wonderful company for me and a wonderful muse for my artwork.
