Tortoiseshells with a relatively small amount of white spotting are known as "tortoiseshell and white", while those with a larger amount are known in the United States as calicos. Calicos are also known as tricolor cats, mi-ke (meaning "triple fur")

There are six main varieties of cat fur patterns: tabby, solid, bicolor, tricolor (also called calico), tortoiseshell, and colorpoint. To make things even more confusing, however, it’s also possible to have a cat that has more than one of these classic fur patterns. The caliby cat is the perfect example.

The word “caliby” is a combination of calico and tabby to stand for the two different types of fur patterns. These cats have the colors of a calico and the stripes, swirls, or spots of a tabby.




Keywords: pet, koty, kotki, Tortoiseshells and calicos.
