Only one out of every 3,000 calico cats is male, and this little foster kitten is one of them. Meet String!
String came to Southern Pines Animal Shelter (in Southern Mississippi) through animal control. “He was a little too small, when he arrived, to thrive and stay healthy in the shelter environment, so he was sent into foster in one of our wonderful foster homes,” Southern Pines said.
“Female cats have two X chromosomes, while male cats have an X and a Y chromosome. For a cat to be a calico or tortoiseshell, the animal must have two X chromosomes, which means the kitty is going to be female the vast majority of the time. When the calico pattern exists in a male, it’s because the cat has three sex chromosomes: two X, one Y (male),” DR. Marty Becker wrote via VetStreet. “And if both X chromosomes carry the calico blueprint, you’re looking at one rare cat: a male calico.”
“String is doing really well in his foster home, and enjoying life as a spoiled kitten. When he is old enough and heavy enough, he will be ready for adoption,” Southern Pines added.

Meet Sol the ginger kitty. He was found under the deck meowing for help. They gave him a home and a friend who is also a ginger cat.
Sol was born in the wild. “When we found him on June 21 he was under our deck, half-starved, crying, flea-infested and pitiful. Just one lone kitten? Where was his mother, his siblings? How did he get under our deck, all alone? We’ll never know,” the family said. “We immediately decided to clean him up and keep him.”
“His first couple weeks were rough. We had to keep him quarantined. He had a URI of some sort, and he was semi-feral.
Our one-year old cat Boots was a little standoff-ish at first, but Sol kept following him around.” Sol slowly came out of his shell with help from Boots. The two became best friends.

Sol slowly came out of his shell and was nursed back to health. This is him snuggling with his rescuer.
Sol met another ginger cat named Boots. “Boots wasn’t Sol’s biggest fan at first, but Sol grew on him.”
“Wouldn’t take no for an answer.”
“Soon it became weird to see one without the other”
“Now it is true love.”

One of these kittens is quite a talker. “She enjoys talking to me when she wants attention,” said the human mom.
“I adopted ‘Mommy Cat’ right after she had given birth to four kittens (Marco, Reese, Haley, and Sadie),” she added.
