I know this might sound silly-but what is the difference between the two???? I thought I was a beautiful Calico-and now I am thinking that I might be a tortie!??! Can someone please tell me what exactly I am.

Calicos have more white, normally on the undersides, wheras torties have hardly any. If a cat has all white with a little torite coloring, he / she is a calico. If a cat has mostly torite coloring, with a little white and is a girl (according to one source ) she is a tortie. Does that answer your question?

Hi calicos and torties, wave

I'm new here. My name is Mittens and I'm a dilute calico. What's a dilute calico? smile If you look at my photos you will see that grey is my dominant color but I have white too, mostly on my tummy but not as much as a regular calico, and only small patches of orange. I don't have the big patches of color on the white that you "true" calicos have. And of course I have white paws (which is why some silly human gave me the name Mittens). big grin
