  1. Oh! We knew this color patterns were normally female cats, but not that male cats are sterile. We once saw a red female cat (!), also very rare, and now we wonder whether she was sterile, too. As she got neutered as a kitten, we don’t know whether she was able to become a mother.

    I have always loved calicos and torties. So colorful! 🙂
