A litter of five calico babies came to the Cat House on the Kings in Parlier, California early September. Soon they discovered something quite unique about this litter. Two out of the five kittens are male calicos.

"We took in a litter of 5 calico kittens and two were boys," Harvie Schreiber of the Cat House on the Kings told Love Meow.

Having a male calico is one out of 3,000 chance. Now they found two in the same litter, the odds of that is simply astounding.

Just like humans, cats have two sex chromosomes that determine their gender. Female kitties have only X chromosomes while male cats have both X and Y chromosomes.

A calico or tortoiseshell must have two X chromosomes which means the kitty is going to be female 99.99% of time.

It's very rare to see a male calico, but even more unique when there are two from the same litter.

The calico pattern exists in male cats is because the cat has an extra X-chromosome: two X, one Y (male). In humans, this condition is known as Klinefelter Syndrome.

They don't have much info on their cat mom or dad, but the kittens certainly share a very strong calico gene.

Each of the five calicos has their unique personality.
