How long do calico cats live on average?

Persian cat: 12 – 17 years
Turkish Angora: 12 – 18 years

Furthermore, is there such a thing as a male calico cat?

But the male, with his single X chromosome, has only one of that particular coat-color gene: he can be not-ginger or he can be ginger (although some modifier genes can add a bit of white here and there), but unless he has a chromosomal abnormality he cannot be a calico cat.

Can a female calico cat have kittens?

In the exceptionally rare cases where the male is not sterile (about 1 in 1,000 of the already rare 1 in 3,000 male calico cats), attempting to breed him with a female calico or tortoiseshell will not produce male calico or tortoiseshell kittens at a higher than normal rate, nor would he be more likely to produce male

Are tortie cats always female?

All tortoiseshell and tortoiseshell and white (Calico) cats are female. But not all gingers are male, though most are. The reason is that in cats the colour gene is carried on the X chromosome.
