beautiful, but just a minor correction to your comment by Vanessa: calico are almost always female, if the odd male calico comes along he is usually sterile.

This is really beautiful. Yes, calicos are always female with ONE exception. There are several male Calicos. We had one. They are almost always sterile. Our male Calico, Rocky, was all black and white but had two brown spots which qualified him as a calico male.
