What Is a Calico Cat? Calico cats are popular choices for cat lovers because of their gorgeous coats. But, unlikе a Siamese or Persian cat, calico is not a feline breed. A calico can be a Persian, Maine coon, Manx, or several other breeds. For a cat to be labeled calico, their coat must contain three colors—black, white, and orange. These three colors appear on the coat in patches, often with white in the highest concentration. Calico cats are named for their coat color that resembles calico cloth, which was once imported from England to India.
Calico cats are often mistaken for tortoiseshell cats, and the terms can be used interchangeably in some regions. Tortoiseshells differ from calicos in that the colors are mixed or blended, with no white, while calicos have distinct patches with a large amount of white. Calicos can also have dilute coats, with fawn, cream, chocolate, and gray patches, rather than the traditional bright white, orange, and black.
What Breeds of Cats Can Be Calico? Since we’ve established that calico is a color pattern, not a breed, does that mean that any cat can be calico? Many breeds can produce calico cats, but not all. Why Are So Many Calico Cats Female? It’s a fact that 99.9 percent of all calico cats are female because of the unique chromosomal makeup that determines the color variations in their coats.
