Orange Cats Male Female Ratio
Orange cats are usually male.
Orange cats male female ratio. The female cat therefore can have the orange mutant gene on one X chromosome and the gene for a black coat on the other. The rarer orange female tabbies tend to be sassy but that is anecdotal. Ginger tom cats father tortoiseshell or ginger females.
This is because the gene that codes for orange fur is on the X chromosome and like humans females have two Xs and males are XY. The gene that determines orange fur is on the X chromosome so both male and female Calico can be black or orange. Most orange tabbies are males and they tend to have a nice character.
Approximately 20 percent of orange tabby cats are female. In reality orange tabby cats can also be female. More than 75 of orange tabby cats are male.
Im looking at the distribution of the sexes of cats on a popular adoption web site and Im seeing roughly a 31 ratio of males to females in orange cats but a very consistent 11 ratio of males to females in black cats. Morris the famous Nine Lives cat food mascot was a typical male ginger cat and most though not all gingers encountered in homes. Therefore not all of male Calico cats have an orange coat.
Males only have to inherit one orange gene to appear orange while females have to inherit two. At least 80 of orange tabby cats are male while only 20 are females since to be one females need two copies of the X chromosomes as opposed to males that only need one chromosome. Female orange tabby cats arent uncommon.
Tabby cats are todays topic so I thought Id try and answer the question in the title to this post. This is just downright interesting. Orange tabby cat toms outnumber queens approximately four to one.
