WEDNESDAY’S WORD: CALICO

CAT CALICO MAMA 2017 BARLEY DARTS

CALICO: Multi-colored, tri-colored, or mottled.

Our calico cat has a naturally bobbed tail.  As the story goes, her bloodlines include wild American bobcat.  However, science has yet to prove whether or not wild bobcats cross with domestic felines.  Regardless, a few of our cat’s kittens continue to pass on this trait.
