I've had Little grey for about 5 years now and I'm curious as to what sort of either calico or tortoiseshell she is.
She's a love bug, loves to snuggle up and have belly rubs. Which I've never had a cat quite like her as she doesn't like to be separated from me

Hi. Pretty kitty! I would personally consider her to be a torbie with white. From what I think I have learned on this site over time, the term "caliby" is an informal term meaning torbie and white but is usually used when cats have more white than yours, and when the colors are more distinctly separated (like with a calico).

A picture where her entire side is visible would be helpful. She looks like a blue tabby from these photos.

The first pic. shows her pale brown and grey torbie pattern. So she is a dilute torbie. She also has a light marking along her nose that is extra to her grey stripes. That's my prediction.... ;)

Blue tortie tabby, no white :) the white on her face is from her tabby pattern

Yep, blue tabby tortoiseshell, or dilute tabby tortoiseshell if you prefer. A.K.A. torbie. The small bit of white isn't white spotting, just part of the tabby pattern that may be more or less prominent in some individuals.

It is kind of hard to say for me because the pics lighting color tones change alot. Maybe a dilute torbie or sorts or maybe a blue mackerel tabby. She is a cutie whatver it is 😻

She would be a dilute torbie for sure as you can see a lot of orange in her fur and it's not just the orangish hue some greys can have.

Cute dog too 😻 looking at her again, it does look like she has lots of def red/ orange patchy areas, too much for rust tones in a tabby so she looks like a dilute torbie to me prolly.
