Calico Exotic Shorthair & Calico Persian Kitten (or Calico Exotic Longhair Kitten) Color Variations
The Calico Exotic Shorthair Kitten or Calico Persian kitten is a tri-color kitten, with white, black, and orange patches. They typically have white faces, chests, and legs. Calicos usually have black or orange foreheads, ears, and backs. Their legs may be either white or colored. Their spots may be more one color than the other, but they must have some combination of the two. An alternate way that we have heard others refer to them is multicolored. We refer to colors in accordance with CFA* standards so we will use the term calico.
