Question by Lilly: What is the difference between a calico and a tortoise shell cat?
I always figured my rescued kitty was a calico, but heard the other term. What is the difference? She is black tan white and brown.
All my other cats have had a solid color.
Answer by Kenja
tortoise shell cats usually have 3 colors with no white fur at all. calico cats will have the same color but will have white fur as well. )
