Due to the overwhelming response (what a friendly group this is.. :) ) It is
taking me longer than anticipated to correlate all our puss-cats names and
colours - especially with the inclusion of the rainbow bridge crowd.
Consequently, I hope to have it ready later this week, probably by the
weekend.

Cheers

Well, that has to be quite a job.  I'm curious to see the outcome.

We going to get color pie charts and bar graphs, too?  <heehee>

As long as you're making a list I suppose I should throw in my own fur
balls too.
Meow - tuxedo
PJ - orange tabby
Sunni - dilute tortie

I always thought that a tortiseshell (sp?) was orange/black/white, and I had
no idea what a calico was.

Okay, going by what Lisa said:

Mango and Widget are calico (ie. orange/black/ white).

Cheers,
Dewi.

Grey instead of black. Also called a 'muted' tortie. My first foster cat and
her kitten were dilute tortie and white. Gorgeous.

And whilst I'm bragging, Scruffy (my first foster cat) won the 'Best Rescue'
class at the local cat show on Saturday, and her daughter won 'Best Junior
Tortie / Tortie & White".

As I understand it, a tortoiseshell is ginger and black intermingled in a
brindle pattern, a tortie and white is ginger, black & white, and a calico is a
tortie & white where the ginger, black and white are in distinct blotches.

I'm pretty sure I've seen brindle torties with white patches on feet and chest,
but I've also got a feeling that I read somewhere that the white gene causes
the black and ginger to split into patches. Both can't be true, help!!!

What most people call calico is properly refered to (in cat shows) as
tortie with white.

Would you like mine too?  Though they appear on Dave's list, you may want
to include our Hobo and Speckles.

RB's are:  Duchess Hotspur, Baby, Frodo, Philip, Chico, Custard (Cus-Cat),
Mouse (AKA Alien), Prego, Amigo (Mego), Spothead, Stupid, Spock, Space Cat,
and several more that would make your list TOOOO long!!

Last year, my son made up a list of *all* the pets we've had over the
years.  Since I had seven children (all now grown), each of whom had pets
of one sort or another, the list ran to two single-space pages -- dogs,
cats, turtles, snakes, guinea pig, mice, fish, seems you-name-it-we-had-it
-- and all had names!  What a project *that* was!!

Hello, Helen.

Our calico five year old furball is called "Sherry". Hope this is not too
late.

Chris.

My Lucy is a tortie with white paws and a blotch on her chest.  I call her a
tortie tux.  :-)
