Tortoise Shell

What would be a good background colour for a portrait of a tortoise-shell cat?

It's very close up so there isn't much background just a bit of space around some of the edges. I can't decide what colour would look best but it needs to be fairly neutral as it is for someone else and I don't want it to clash with their decor.

It's being done in acrylics if that makes any difference.
