Default Latest family pet.

This is `Romeo` my daughters latest addition to her zoo of four cats,
two dogs, one rabbit tortoise and a twenty year old horse.
Oh, forgot to mention her four children...!!!!!!

From the photograph Romeo looks like a calico or patched tabby virtually all of which are female. Male calicos are a one in 3000 shot and are genetic anomolies with three cromosomes. Is he really a male calico?

Sorry for the delayed reply. My daughter informs me `Romeo` is indeed a `Maine Coon`.

Maine Coon is the breed but Calico refers to color. Is Romeo a male calico?

Hi again, Unfortunately what you are asking is well beyond my remit regarding cats...Apart from them eating, sleeping and meowing...!!
I really honestly had not even heard of a `Maine Coon`, all I can tell you..is head is as you see but his body (in the main) is sort of stripy ?

When I next visit my daughter I will take and post a full body shot which will hopefully identify Romeo.

Kind regards...

Hi ` whaas2 ` Well, well, well..... It seems my daughter has to find a new name for her
dear little `Romeo`.....!!!!! and I have to say.. without your excellent feline knowledge we would not have discovered this gender error until very much later...so well done you.
We live and learn don`t we..!!! very many thanks for your initial query regarding `Romeo.`..... quote: "Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo"? mmm now we know...!!!!!
Kind regards Gordon...
