Dilute Calico Cat

What is a dilute calico cat? First, let me describe what a calico cat is: Calico is not a specific breed, it is a coat pattern. A calico is a cat with a three-color coat. The coat must have distinct patches of white (main color), black and red (also called orange).

You will find that the calico pattern occurs in different breeds, including the American Shorthair, Japanese Bobtail, Manx, and Persian.

Are you interested in learning more about these unique felines? This article has information about breeds with the calico pattern.

Now, dilute calicos also have a tricolor coat. But the red and black patches are diluted (or washed out). So red turns into cream and black turns into blue (gray).
