On a tortoise shell cat the colours are more blended, on a calico the colors form distinct patches

Also, calico's have white in their coat, torties do not (blended black and orange only).

Not entirely true, tortoiseshell just have to have LITTLE or NO white, but they can have some. Or they can be called tortoiseshell and white if they have more than the desired amount.
