    HAHA! Most of you know my oldest child is 6 years old, so it was her cat. Bloomer is the proud new mother of 5 cuties. There are 2 Ralphies (and that is what I call a gray/black tabby cat bc I had one named Ralph when I was a kid), 2 gray tabbies that look like Mama, and one Calico. The gray ones are the only boys.

    Do you think it is true all calico cats are girls? I don't think it is. I think we had one that was a boy once. ?

    These were born on 5 April. The first made its appearance at 1:30am.

    Wait until they are old enough to attack your stash or threads! I'd love to have another kitty or 2, but we're maxed out...not enough space as it is...

    my dreams some day would to have a feline santuary (sp) where people can bring abandoned cats and just leave em, no worries...they are adoptable if desired, but I'd house them and take care of them throughout their lives...unlike most shelters which euthinize after a certain amount of time.

    They are so cute. I do believe that all calicos are female - thnk my friend who was a breeder told me that.

    Congratulations Great Gramma! LOL They are sooo cute :D
    I googled about the female/calico coloration thing & I found this:

    It has to do with the fact that the color genes are on the X chromosome, but not on the Y.
    Now we know! :wink:
