Are male calico cats worth a lot of money?


Male calico cats are rare because they are the result of abnormal genetic patterns. Since they are almost always sterile, they have no value for breeding.

For a cat to be a calico, it must inherit one gene for orange color and one for black color. These genes are located at the same site on the X sex chromosome, so a single X chromosome has either the orange gene or the black gene, not both. A calico cat has inherited an X chromosome with the orange gene from one parent and an X chromosome with the black gene from the other parent. Two X chromosomes normally produce a female, but male calico cats have three total sex chromosomes: two X chromosomes plus the Y chromosome that determines maleness. This genetic abnormality usually causes sterility.
