50 Perfect Calico Cat Names for Your Beautiful Kitty
Use your pet's unique coat as inspiration on what to call them.
Calico cats have a bright, beautiful fur that makes the feline eye-catching. Some might think calico is a breed, but it's actually just a description of their orange, black, and white coats. As an owner, it's important to know that if you're searching for a calico cat, it could be one of many breeds, including the American shorthair, the Persian, and the Norwegian forest cat, which can determine your kitty's personality. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, it's not completely clear where calico cats originated, but many people think they were brought down from the Mediterranean and discovered in Egypt. Now, you can find calicos all over the world.
In folklore, calico cats are often thought to bring good fortune, and in the United States, they're considered so lucky they're called "money cats." Of course, you're more than welcome to name your cat anything you'd like, but you should know that there's almost a 100% certainty your pet is a female. Their unique black, orange, and white coat is due to the X chromosome.
