Calico cats have white, black and orange colors, and are predominantly female. If they happen to be male, they’re unable to reproduce, yet a male Calico cat named¬†Dawntreader Texas Calboy, or Calboy for short, has defied these odds with a rare gene.

That makes Calboy one of the few male Calico cats that can reproduce. Because of his rare gene, Calboy has also been banned from winning any awards at cat shows by the¬†Cat Fancier’s Association.

If you think discrimination against humans is bad, imagine poor Calboy being discriminated against because he’s a rare male Calico that can reproduce. Until the Cat Fancier’s Association changes their rules, Calboy will have to be content in just being a rare cat all by himself.
