I have heard that over 99% of all calico cats are female. Many years ago I read an article in a cat magazine that explained this.

Apparently, color in cats is related to gender somehow. Does anyone have any easy to understand information about this?

We have a young calico colored cat. It has very light tan markings plus blue colored markings and no other color on it. I have never seen a blue and light tan colored cat before. Does anyone know anything about this color of cat?

It's called a Blue Cream or a Dilute Tortoiseshell or Calico depending on how much white.

Cheebus is 9 years old. Cheebus is very special to me because my best friend gave her to me right before she passed away from a sudden severe stroke at the age of 29. I wasn't looking to have another cat, but she told me I'd make a good mother.

Pip is an 8 year old calico cat. I found her as a tiny kitten one very hot day while taking a walk. She was huddled on the sidewalk in the corner of a downtown building.

How often do we feel just like this while waiting for that important fax? This is Gizzy, our 2 year old.

My husband named her Gizmo after she had laid her ears flat out once as a kitten while watching a bird.
