Summary
A day to celebrate the flame-haired feline in your life!

The orange color comes from a specific pigment. These cats have a predominance of a certain pigment known as pheomelanin—the same pigment that produces red hair in humans!

Ginger cats are more likely to be male than female. *This is because the “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. Ginger tom cats father tortoiseshell or ginger females. If both parents are ginger, then they will have all ginger kittens as well.
