A male tortoiseshell???

A male tortoiseshell was born in England according to Daily Mail!! Tortoiseshell kitties are usually female because it takes two X chromosomes to have different color.

I didn't realize that torties were usually female. I had a brother in my litter and I think he was the same color as me. However that was almost 14 years ago, so my memory may not be too good.
