A walk about town with Kane was earlier than usual. I'm always amazed at the number of out-door cats that we pass by and today I caught a couple with my camera. I saw a sweetie in a window, too.
Calico refers only to the colour pattern on the fur, not to a breed.
The soft shades of grey, peach and white are known as a pastel or dilute calico. The stronger colours of black, orange and white are known as a vibrant calico.
This photo shows you the difference in the two.
Calico cats are also known to have a bit of cat-itude. They like to be pampered and treated with utmost regard. They are often the top-cat in the multi-cat household.
It is very rare to find a male calico.
I, personally, have lived with two calico cats. One a vibrant and one a pastel. Both of these cats lived in a multi-cat household and both were treated with great respect by the other cats.
They definitely did 'lord it over' the others.
My house is still upside down and Audrey is loving every minute of it.
She gets into mischief and I have to save her sometimes.
Annie, on the other hand, is waiting patiently to get back to her new favorite bed.
There is nothing like a french-bread basket to loll away the day in.
We are fixing and replacing windows and removing paint from and varnishing the window-sills.
Nothing too elaborate but a mess, none the less.
"One more day", I am told. One more day.
