Today I have selected a fine example of a black calico cat, who lives in the Netherlands, to be featured on this page from the Facebook Pictures-of-cats.org group page.
Here he is:
Some people have called him a tortoiseshell cat. He is but as there is some white and as the tortoiseshell is very dark in the USA he is a black calico, I would say or a tortoiseshell and white in the UK.
He lives with Sientje Tierelier. See him here on FB in large format (opens a new window)
