What is a caliby cat?
A caliby is a type of coat colour/pattern which consists of areas of orange (red) and brown tabby with white. The name is a mix of calico + tabby = caliby.
Most cat lovers are familiar with tortoiseshell and calico cats. The tortoiseshell cat has patches of black and orange, brown and orange or grey and cream and the calico has patches of black and orange, brown and orange, grey and cream with the addition of areas of white. Cats displaying red and brown or cream and grey tabby patterns without the presence of white are known as patched tabbies.
Caliby cats can display the classic, mackerel or spotted tabby pattern. The photo below shows a caliby with spotted markings.
