There are a couple of calico cats that he refers to as “he.” I thought calicos were almost always female.

They are. Methinks Mr Postman is using the generic "he".

They are, barring any genetic defects. The genes necessary to the proper color combination for a calico (or a tortoiseshell, for that matter) reside on the X chromosome.
