From his name and appearance you’d think Misty was a female. Misty is a dilute tortoiseshell. As coat color is sex linked in cats, tortoiseshell cats are almost always female. The color combination in tortoiseshell (and calico coloring) requires two X chromosomes. As females are XX and males are XY the only way a male can have tortoiseshell coloring is if he has an extra X chromosome, XXY. Misty is a rare case of a male tortoiseshell cat!
Crosseye is momma or grandmomma to many of the cats in the farm colony. Before being spayed she had multiple litters on the farm. She doesn’t hang out much with the other cats and prefers to stick around the house or in the fields near the farmer. Typically the presence of the younger cats seems to annoy her.
