Not exactly there are no Tortoise shell males or if they are they are sterile, and usually disabled in other ways. Its a genetic thing. However, thereare other 3 coloured cats, like the tiger ones with a white belly and black or dark grey and brown fur

I think you are thinking of calicos. There are some male ones, but they are exremely rare.

Yes, I heard of this before. It is said that if you ever find a 3-coloured male cat, it will bring you luck. I have one 3-coloured female cat but have yet to see a male one though.

I've never heard cats do that, but then I again I don't know about big cats in the wild. Most kittens are always left behind by their mothers, that happen very often with my pets. I am always the one who took care of the kittens and the mother would go who knows where.
