'Calico' is not just another cat breed. The cats which have a specific color pattern are called calico cats. These cats have a coat which is multicolored. White, black, and orange are those colors which are present all over the body of a pure calico cat in the form of large blocks. A version of these cats is called the tortoiseshell or tortie cat, which has a blended form of these colors.
One of the most interesting facts about calico cats is that a majority of these cats are female. Their genetics are responsible for it, as the color of the coat is a trait which is sex-linked. The female cats have two 'X' chromosomes and the males have one 'X' and one 'Y' chromosome. The 'X' chromosome is responsible for the black and orange color. The white color is due to another gene. As the female calico cats have two 'X' chromosomes, they have two coat colors, orange and black. The males have only one 'X' chromosome, so they have either an orange or a black coat.
