WHERE INFORMATION FOR THIS POWERPOINT WAS
• And my own knowledge
Kitten (My Own)
Calico is not a breed but is just a variation of fur that is tri-colored. The fur is predominantly white with
patches of orange, brown, and black. Although most calico cats are female it is possible for male calico cats
to exist. Calico cats are often confused with cats with tortoise shell fur pattern. The difference between
Tortoise shell and calico cats are that calico cats have distinct patches of color in their fur while tortoise
shell cat’s fur seems to blend together and often has no white.
Tortoise Shell Cat
Tortoise shell cats, like calico cats, are not a certain breed, but just have a different variation of fur. Tortoise
shell colors can include different shades of black and brown, as with calico cats, most tortoise shell cats are
female but can be male.
Siberian cats originated in Russia and of course like other cats, were prized for their hunting ability.
Siberian cats can come in all variations of colors mostly with white. Siberian cats are also known to not
produce a certain chemical which allows some people that would normally be allergic to cats, to be able to
Chartreux cats originated in France and are known for their grey coat and orange eyes. Chartreux cats have
short but thick fur and also have very low shedding, Chartreux cats have a strong build, long tail, and can
be silly and do like lots of attention.
Orange Tabby Cat
The tabby fur gene is more dominant than any other fur gene so tabby cats are often very popular. Tabby
cat markings can be stripes, spots, ticks and swirls. Tabbies can be found as brown tabbies, silver tabbies,
ginger orange tabbies, grey tabbies, and more.
• Siamese cats are often seen with long muscular bodies with white/grey fur with a little brown and black
in it, they also often have blue eyes. Siamese cats are known to be very social cats and will follow you
and talk a lot of the time, they will be on your lap and sleeping with you whenever. Siamese cats do not
like to be left alone for long periods of time and demand lots of attention.
