While it's true that most calico's are female male calicos exist as well. The some genes responsible for fur color is located on the X chromosome so due to x chromosome inactivation female cats can get color splotches due to some of the cells having mom's X turned off and others due to dad's X being turned off.

That still doesn't answer the question of why a male cat could also have this patterning ...

Unless of course that cat was XXY (similar to human klinefelter syndrome). Unfortunately for these cats (and humans) they almost always are impotent/infertile. So, biologically speaking, this character might have a genotype of XXY. (Though it would make a very good "sissy boy" (fitting in to the 20's theme) character XD but I think this comic is a little too innocent for those kinds of themes)

Hello! I just read the entirety of TKT, and was amazed by the amount of work put in to each page! Fabulous.
We haven't met most of these characters! Are you still planning them in to the comic?
Kaleidoscope looks like a cat after Mewsli's own heart. Though aren't only female cats calico...? No real matter, biological accuracy is not really the point of the comic =P

Thank you! I'm glad that you like the comic!

We want to put Colleen Chicken in and Kaleidoscope. We're not going to put in the fox because Indy Cndy became the character that she was meant to be. And we're probably not going to put in the little puppy either. I kind of imaged him being one of those ten-year-olds who gets into college. But we'll see if he fits in.

We still need to put Egglue the baby Giraffe in and he'll be in the next chapter hopefully and I want Colleen Chicken to have a friend named Cocktail Cockateil.

Most calicos are mostly female but for some reason I ALWAYS draw calicos as boys, I think just because I have a boy cat.
