A few calico cats, including Mungojerrie, are male. Although the nature of chromosomes causes most calico cats to be female, it is a little known fact that male calico cats can exist, although they are extremely rare. See more »

Should be considered as a crime against humanity
25 December 2019 | by nxesciiSee all my reviews

Honestly I wish I was joking. Just everything was completely terrible. James Corden was cripplingly awful but that's nothing particularly surprising. Leaving the cinema I'd felt as if my soul had been sucked dry. Avoid at all cost.
