Calico cats in Morocco

I'd never appreciated the beauty and variety of calico cats before I got into taking kitty pictures on my trip to Morocco.

 

For whatever reason, perhaps because I grew up in a gray tabby household, these cats simply weren't on my cat radar.

 

But there were just so many calicoes in the Moroccan cat population, and I became fascinated by the variety of patterns.

 

Jigsaw genetic patterns of coat color.
