Here are the patched beauties that make Mohawk their home.

The genes that control feline coat color are found on the X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes; males have an X and a much smaller Y. (During fertilization, the female contributes an X to the embryo, whereas the male contributes either an X or Y. If it is an X chromosome, the embryo is female; if it's the Y, the result is a male kitten.) To compensate for this imbalance, part of one of the female's X chromosomes, on which the genes for orange, black and white coat color are coded, is inactivated or turned off. Inactivation takes place several days after fertilization when the embryo has grown from a single cell to a cluster of cells. It is a random act as to which X chromosome is inactivated in each cell. In some cases, it might be the gene for white coat color; in other cases, it will be black. This random turning off of genes results in the unique patterning of the calico and tortoiseshell cat.

It is a rare genetic occurrence, but a male calico can result. This cat will have two X chromosomes and a Y chromosome, and will usually be sterile.

Of course...in Petz world..things are much different.
