Waw thats rare lol
Extremly rare lol do you think its real lol?
Asking price: £30
Me thinks not.
its rare but can happen .. although male torties are usually dogged with ill heath and are normally infertile
theres also a "rare" female calico on preloved too hahaha
Yeah thats true. It can happen. You never know. lol
i have a male tortie not "dogged" with ill health, he's very healthy, what makes you say that? and being infertile is not a problem as most cats are neutered anyways, or, at least the should be!!!!
the cat in question could well be a male so i think to you the opening poster ut: is a bit harsh, you do not know the facts at all about the cat for sale. if they;ve made a mistake we are all human and it happens.
Well a male tortie is VERY, VERY rare.
In fact I have never come across one in my 6 years of cat rescue.
It could be real or it could be a mistake, we all know how hard it can be to sex little kittens.
hi ya not all male torties but it does happen ..same as white cats with blue eyes are not all deaf ..but theres alot that are , thats all i meant , the infertile bit i learnt from my vet
Red Point & Tortie Point Siamese picture of a male tortie point siamese, who was not infertile.
Having a patch or a few break through hairs of base colour is very common in red/cream/apricots. It doesn't make them a tortie, just means that those hairs are unaffected by the affects of the orange gene (not a good explanation I know). True male torties are supposed to have 3 chromozones rather than 2, hence the usual infertility.
Yeah when i was at college with the litter of kittens (the one i got my kitten from) there was one ginger and 2 torties and 1 calico. and straight away i though, one boy 3 girls lol
But one of the other students said one of the torties was a boy. I was shocked lol but turned out they had just sexed it wrong lol Was a little girl
