Default Found Something Weird Out Today About my Cat

My cat who is 15 years old. I heard from various people his kind was VERY rare and that he is worth alot of money because he is a male calico cat. I was told by people I could get anywhere from 500-8000$ for him to a "research institute for "studies" but there is NOWAY i would even call them to ask how much they'd give me. He is my buddy and I am not going to give him to them when he dies either...



Forgot to mention he and his sister who is also still alive. they are both 15 years old and were abused when they were kittens.(not fed) I have had them for a little over 14 years.

Still never figured out why Calico's are supposed to bring some much money.

Good for you for having such a rare and I am sure good companion for all 15 years. I wouldn't sell him either.

I'm glad that someone else finds the thought of selling this cat morally wrong, too!

You've got a 1993 Male Calico Cat?! That's some serious juju! I would never flip one of those for under 8k... those packs are real hard to come by, especially since it's the year before the strike season (not enough rats to go around). Congrats on that sweet 1/1!

Rip it! Ooops Wrong Thread.

Get a Female Calico and try to make some male kittens.

Then Sell the Kittens.

I found this out online, thought everyone would be interested to know:

In England and parts of the United States, male calico cats are considered to be even luckier than normal calicos due to their extreme rarity. These cats are often called money cats, due to the popular, though mistaken, belief that they are worth a lot of money.


This rumor probably started when a research establishment put out a call for male calicos to test them for fertility. In fact, because the vast majority of male calicos are infertile, they are no good for breeding programs and therefore, not worth a great deal of money.
