What is a calico cat?

Calico Cats don’t come from any particular breed. Calico simply refers to a combination of colors that make up their coats: black, white, and orange. Predominantly white, they are covered in delightful patches of orange and black. This unique coat can normally only happen to female cats as it is dependent on the X chromosome. Indeed, if you pick a calico cat you can be almost 100% sure that it is female.

Round Up

Calicos come in all sorts of breeds, from the American Shorthair to the Persian. However, it is thought they may have originated in Egypt (hence so many Egyptian names on this list). As they are not an individual breed, there is not a typical character to a calico cat. You will just have to see for yourself! The good news is they are believed to bring their owners good fortune. Happy naming!

Yes, I am that weird cat lady with 200 cats and live in the darkest corner of the city where no one dares to go! Joking! But I am a cat lover and have 2 Ragdoll cats called Toby, he's 3 years old and Dory, she's 8 years old. I'm 36 years old and live in the quiet town of Washington.
