What Does a Calico Cat Look like?

Answer

A calico cat usually has a parti-coloured or spotted coat, which is usually white with orange and black patches. Contrary to people's beliefs, a calico cat is not a breed, but it is a genetic characteristic passed from the cat's mother. Most calico cats are female and if a male cat inherits the gene, it normally becomes sterile.
