10 Cute Calicos Who Need a Home (Photos)

Calico cats have a coat that is mostly white, with patches of two other colors whether they’re long-haired or short-haired, and single-breed or mixed-breed. “Tortoiseshell” refers to a similar appearance: tortoiseshell cats have a mottled and patchy-colored coat whose main color is not necessarily white. Interestingly enough, cats with these two coat patterns are almost always female! They’re both believed to be good luck in many cultures, and who knows… if you meet the sweetest calico/tortoiseshell cat in a shelter, she just might be, for you!

Here are ten calico/tortie cats who are looking for homes, from shelters all over the U.S. Don’t you wish you could take them all home?

(Don’t forget: if you’re looking for a new animal companion, you can use Care2′s Adoptable Pets page to find your perfect match!)
