Default Tri colour local cat

Halo cat lovers, kinda curious here. All my cat lover friends in Sabah ask the same question over and over again? How come there are no tri colour male? All the tri colour my friends got are female. They say it's very hard and never saw a tri colour male b4. Y ler? Any suggestion?

eh,orang sabahkah Vivi?? Sabah mana tu?? me also Sabahan.Di KK. Actually,when I was a kid,we have 1 male calico (tricolour).tp dia bisu.ndak boleh mengiau but don't live long,2 thn saja. he was a rare cat. if you notice,when the mother cat gave birth to calico male,she will eat the kitten almost immediately.probably it has to do with their nature.

The color gene is found on the sex chromosome, like the human female has the XX chromosomes while the guys have the XY. If a tri-color male kitten is born, it will die because of the genetic flaw, and as nature seldom wastes, the mother eats the sick or dying kitten for nutrition.

FurKids, does that mean tri-color male, memang won't survive after birth (die on its own) or died cause the mother ate it? What say, we see and save it b4 the mother eats it...dia mmg xkan survive jgk ke?

Hehe...don't know if anyone heard of the story...but there's a story (although illogical), if a tri-color male survives he will become the king of cats...so the father would eat it, cause they don't want to have a king...

FurKids msti gelakkn Nana kn... You do have lots of info...I'm learning lots from here...

No point saving it la, Nana, nak jadi "slave" kepada normal, healthy muka sepohsen pun dah penat mampus ... normally the tri-color male will not survive on its own because of defects tapi if it does in rare cases, mcm Nik Tropicana cakap, it will be sterile. It will definitely not be healthy enough to even be the prince of cats.

Calico Cats

Tortoiseshell describes a coat coloring found in cats. Cats of this colour are mottled, with patches of red and black, chocolate, or cinnamon. They are sometimes called torties for short.

The term "tortoiseshell" (also called calimanco or clouded tiger in North America) is typically reserved for cats with brindled coats that have relatively few or no white markings. Those that are largely white with red and black patches (rather than a brindled aspect) are described as tortoiseshell-and-white (in the UK) or calico (in the United States).

Tortoiseshells and calicos are not specific breeds of cat. The tortoiseshell markings appear in many different breeds. This pattern is especially preferred in the Japanese Bobtail breed.

Both calico and tortoiseshell cats are almost always female.
