Do you have a tortie or a calico? Well, then you know exactly what we’re talking about.
Contrary to popular belief, torties and calicos are definitely NOT a breed of cat – but a fur pattern. The size of the patches may range from a speckled pattern to large splotches of color.
Tortoiseshell cats have very few or no white markings at all , as opposed to calicos, who are tri-colored cats with larger areas of white fur. And obviously, MOST calicos and torties are females, but there are some rare exceptions!
So here are some absolutely adorable calicos and torties for your enjoyment and entertainment!
