Today we're having ourselves a bit of a party. Why? Because it's the birthday of the fubabies' grandma (aka, this here human's mom)!
The kitties and pup Astrid love their grandma, and she loves them. The furbabies' grandma helps spoil them rotten, and we're all perfectly fine with that.
Happy birthday to the grandma! (From this here human, happy birthday, Mom!)
In case you're curious, my mother is indeed a crafter, and so that there is a birthday card I doodled up for her.
Did you know?Did you know that it is possible for a calico cat to be a male? That being said, a male calico cat is incredibly rare. The reason why calicoes are almost always females is because the tricolor coat requires particular genes on two X chromosomes, and females are the ones with the XX chromosomal makeup. In rare cases of chromosomal abnormalities, though, it is actually possible for a male cat to have two X chromosomes, making them XXY instead of just XY in terms of chromosomes. In such cases, the cat will be a male thanks to the Y chromosome, but will also be a calico if the proper genes are on both of the X chromosomes. A male calico is typically sterile.
