The O (orange) gene is responsible for the red color. Know that 80% of ginger cats are male! Red females are therefore rare. Indeed, everything is explained… The male has an X chromosome and a Y chromosome. If the O gene attaches to the X chromosome, he takes on a red hair. Concerning the female, it is a little more complicated since it is necessary that the O gene attaches to the two X chromosomes!
