This is a "double-sided album," in that calico cats are honored in our July Cat Calendar Gallery. Calico cats represent the brilliant rainbow of colors in a sunny July day. Of all cat color patterns, Calicos are perhaps the loveliest with their tri-colored exuberance. Although most Calicos are females because of genetics, the rare male does sometimes pop up, as you may see in this gallery.

Enjoy this picture calendar featuring colorful calico cats, then send your own calico photo, if you're lucky enough to share your home with one. You may submit your own calico cat photo by using the guidelines on the Photo Submittal page.

Hi, my calico cat Smudge is eight years old! She will not let anyone near it, including my other calico Minnie who is seven! They are total opposites in character…Smudge is agressive and won’t be touched and Minnie is a silly kitten-like baby girl of a cat. May I add, I love them both equally quirkyness and all! They are wonderful, I would never have any other type of Puss!

In 1992 a small calico showed up on my deck looking for food. She was mostly white with small patches of red and black on her head and tail. She had two kittens, both male, one was white with black areas on his head, tail and back and the other was white with light brown or muted red on his head, back and tail. The one who was muted red and white soon became friends with another calico who showed up when the kittens where quite small. She was a long haired muted calico. Now I have a cat who is mostly grey tabby with just a little red on her face and legs. There are infinite possibilities of what a calico can look like. I’ve always heard it was good luck to adopt a calico so I’ve never turned one away. For that matter I’ve never turned away any homeless cats unless they attacked my own cats.

My cat is 7 years old and thinks she’s a kitten. Her name is Tory Marie. Her face from the time she was a kitten reminds one of Phantom of the Opera. She has a black mask on left side of her face that falls just below the left eye. We got her from neighbor who wouldn’t let mom out to nurse or take care of kittens. Mom kitty got out only when children’s dad wasn’t around. One eye was matted shut and the other partially matted shut.WE couldn’t believe the abuse their father did to these kittens. We took her in and fed her every 3-4 hours like a human baby. She is queen of the house now and is very spoiled to the point that she makes a nuisance of herself to everyone. My girls complain all the time how she’s a spoiled brat but they would never change her personality and just spoil her even more than she already is.

calico cats are the most beutifull. They seem to look even better in photograph. But one thing you shouldn’t do. Look at what your Calico looks Like in the mirror. Suddenly she turns into a right minger! Dance!(Glasgow)

I have a Calico cat.. and it isn’t very old. But everyone says Calicos are Black, White, AND red/orange… ? Could it be that it’s a mixed breed, will it get red?or can a calico just be black and white?

I got Poppy from a cat rescue when she was about 8 months old. She had been found living wild with a new litter of 3 kittens. By the time I brought her home her kitten’s had been found homes. Although initially she was quite ferral she soon settled in along with a large and overly affectionate tabby and white tom called Jake that came home at the same time. Now at about a year old she is still feisty but her afection is all the more precious for that.Poppy is quite tiny and leanly built and only today I have learnt that her very pretty black and darkish orange splodges on a clean white background makes her a CALICO cat. She is just lovely- lucky me. Certainly easily as good as the one kitten I had promised myself on the day I came home with Jake and Poppy.

I found a stray kitten, male, a few months ago. I’m not sure what he is but I think he might be a calico! He is mostly white with orange on his back, tail, and head. So is he a calico? Are males that color rare? I don’t know a lot about cats so I would really appreciate the help! Thanks!! Sheryl :-)

(19) Franny Syufy says:

Sheryl, unless your kitten has black along with the white and orange, he is not a calico, but a bi-color. Yes, calico males are rare, but sterile, so they have little value as far as cold, hard, cash. We don’t value our cats for cash reasons, anyway. :)
