Due to the calico colour are nearly always found on just female cats, a male cat with such a coat may be worth a lot of money.
There is only one male calico out of every 3,000 calico cats. This makes the male calico extremely rare. It is not worth any set amount of money, but people may be willing to pay more depending on the specific breed of cat.
Calico is a color not a breed
Heck yes they are, but they are worth it. They are the most wonderful cats of all.
since Calico is just a color not a breed, it depends what kind of cat it is . most are just average domestic housecats and arent worth much Answer They are priceless, interesting pets with an attitude. Often cranky, they are always female cats. Some cultures call them "money cats," because they bring good fortune.
More than 99% of calico cats are female. Male calico cats are extremely rare.
The coat pattern of calico cats does not define any breed, calico occurs incidentally in cats.
it is VERY rare to have a boy calico cat. The odds of having a male cat is 1 in a million so they would be worth a lot.
From what I understand calico cats are all female. There are no male calico cats.thats not completely true ..male calico cats are born very rarely about 1-3000 calico cat births..they are always sterile so they are not worth any money..Actually, a few male calico/tortoiseshell cats arefertile. They are more likely the result of mosaicism rather than an XXY chromosomal anomaly, which causes infertility. Whatever the cause, though, they still aren't particularly valuable, because neither a chromosomal anomaly or a developmental anomaly like mosaicism is a genetic trait that can be passed on to their offspring.
No, not all calico cats have six toes
Calico cats come from many generations of different breeds of cat, as Calico is a certain colour, not a type of cat.

Calico refers to the pattern on the cats fur - not the breed. The calico pattern can be found on many different breeds of cat.
Most Calico cats are Female. The reason is because of their genes. Female cats are born with a chromosome that allows the calico coloring,Males rarely have it. If they do it is a genetic Defect. in fact only 1 in every 3,000 calico cats is male.
Calico cats are rare now because only barn cats and strays are having calico kittens now and people are breeding pure bred cats like tabbys and himalayons.
It depends on the personality of the cat. Calico is a certain coat colour, not a breed, so calico cats can be very different from each other.
Yes, there can be male calico cats as well as male torti cats, however they are born sterile and cannot reproduce.
Agreed that calico cats are beautiful animals and ... "beautiful" is an ADJECTIVE.
no, they are not. --- Only male calico/tortoiseshell cats are sterile as a result of a rare genetic mutation.
