Black

Black

You are mysterious and sometimes misunderstood. You are often overlooked by those with simple minds, but you are a real treasure to those who notice both your inner and outer beauty.

FACT: Despite being one of the most common and oldest cat colors, black cats are often overlooked at shelters and are less likely to get adopted than cats with obvious stripes and spots.

White

White

Despite being delicate and a bit needy, you sometimes have difficulty hearing the voice of reason and this gets you in trouble. You are the immediate center of attention when you enter a room, due to your innate elegance and charm.

FACT: White cats with blue eyes often have associated hearing problems and are sometimes completely deaf.

Blue

Blue

Regal and suave, you are a true romantic. Your knowing glance and sly smile can charm the pants off of anyone you meet. Sometimes you have a difficult time walking away from an impossible challenge, but what you lack in insight, you make up for with style.

FACT: Blue cats are actually black cats with a genetic mutation that causes the color of their fur to lighten to a slate gray. Orange tabbies and brown tabbies with the same mutation are known as cream tabbies and lilac tabbies, respectively.

Tabby

Tabby

You are strong-willed with a formidable personality, and fiercely protective of those you love. When you put your mind to something you are virtually unstoppable, but sometimes you have a difficult time empathizing with those weaker than you. Despite this, no-one gives better bear-hugs than you do!

FACT: Tabby is an ancestral cat color, seen in the wild ancestors of domestic cats. Tabby patterns may be striped (mackerel), spotted, ticked, or swirled (classic).

Tortoiseshell

Tortoiseshell

You have yet to truly discover your true self, and in your efforts to avoid taking sides, others often falsely judge you as unremarkable or plain. Your close friends, however, know otherwise and trust your instincts as an expert confidant and mediator.

FACT: Tortoiseshell occurs when a female cat inherits both orange color from one parent and gray,black, or brown color from the other. Because it is linked to the X-chromosome, it is extremely rare for male cats to be tortoiseshell.

Tuxedo

Tuxedo

Your friends would describe you as trusting and a bit childish, but no-one can turn frowns upside-down quite as quickly as you can! You make up for your naivety with your intuition and ability to learn quickly.

FACT: Tuxedo coloration occurs when the migration of pigment cells is delayed during development and does not complete in covering the entire body. It is associated with the juvenile and amiable behavior of domestic animals.

Colorpoint

Colorpoint

You never fail to speak your mind, and your unique way of thinking about problems often leads to novel, innovative solutions. You always think outside of the box, but you need frequent reassurance from your close friends to feel like you are making the right decisions.

FACT: The dark extremities of colorpointed cats are created by the temperature of cat's body. The colder extremities (face, ears, legs, and tail) of the cat are dark, while the warmer body of the cat are lighter colored.

Calico

Calico

Your quirky personality is both engaging and puzzling to those around you, but they love you all the same. Your friends would describe you as cute and fun-loving, though you tendency to flit quickly from one interest to another makes you a bit unpredictable.

FACT: Calico cats are tortoiseshell cats with white spotting. Calico cats tend to have larger patches of orange than tortoiseshell cats without white spotting, who tend to have narrow streaks and speckles of orange.
