Everyone loves a redhead

The red cat is always tabby in pattern, and males far outnumber females In fact only about 1 in 5 orange tabby cats is female. This is because the “red (ginger) gene” which produces the orange color is on the X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes and so need two copies of this gene to become ginger, whereas males need only one. This means there are roughly three males to one female ginger cat.
