Featured on Everyday Intentions Insight card.To order an original portrait of your pet, please contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.orgA calico cat is not a breed of cat, it is a color pattern. To be called 'calico', three colors must be present: black, white and orange. Variations of these colors include gray, cream and ginger. A 'true' calico cat has large blocks of these three colors, a 'tortoise shell' or 'tortie' cat has a mix of these three colors (blended/swirled together more than distinct blocks of color).Did you know?Effective October 1, 2001, the calico cat became the official cat of Maryland (Chapter 194, Acts of 2001; Code State Government Article, sec. 13-317). Its colors of orange, black, and white are shared with the Baltimore oriole (State bird) and the Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly (State insect). Calico's unusual coloring occurring across many breeds, including Domestic Short-hair, Persian, and Manx. Virtually all calico cats are female; a male calico is a genetic anomaly and usually sterile. Producing calico kittens through selective breeding also is nearly impossible due to unpredictable actions of genes and chromosomes when cells multiply in a feline fetus. There is a Calico, California too. 1881 marked the beginning of one of the largest silver strikes in California history and the birth of Calico. This authentic silver mining town lives on as one of the few original mining camps of the Old West and now a famous ghost town.
