how much is a MALE calico cat is worth?

What kind of cat is it? Is it a purebred? A calico is not a breed and cats should not have a value put on them unless they are purebred and have papers and registered and all that. Why do you want to know its worth? Are you buying one or selling one? Just because it isn't very common shouldn't make the price go up, it is still a mixed breed cat.

If it is not a pedigreed, which I am assuming its not, it is not worth anything.

They don't really have any monetary worth, but they are considered very rare. Not rare enough for people to seek out and try to breed because it is a genetic anomoly and not necessarily healthy (at least in humans that have this anomoly there can be slight mental retardation).

Male calicos are not worth anything per say. They are very rare, but 9 out of 10 are sterile. It would be no more then a normal pedigree cat (if its a purebred).

I heard many years ago that the queen of England was wanting a male calico cat and was offering a large amount of money for one, any breed, mixed or not. I have no idea if this is true, or why... but I do remember hearing about it more than once.

A male calico isn't woth any more than any other cat.

I wouldn't buy one for the simple reason they don't make good studs since almost everyone of them is sterile. As a breeder I have no use for a sterile male.
