A new University of California study shows that human perception, not color, is the problem.

Exactly Barb, well duh! They actually researched this? Well, then human hair color should reflect our personalities as well.

Agree. I have to say, my black cat is gorgeous in a home setting. It's like having my own miniature black panther in my home. Black cats don't show well in shelters, but are on the exotic side when at home.

Cats have different personalities. Just like us. Every cat deserves a loving home. Regardless of colour. Thank you Barb. Hugs.

Every black and white cat I have had (tuxie or just color mixed) has been a storyteller. That may well be just my purrception, of course, but it had made for many good conversations. Mostly, I have found each cat to be a special individual with unique traits. I had one once who had perfect pitch, which came in very handy if I was giving a violin lesson.

Judging a cat by its colour is racism!

I've been a pet parent to many cats over the years and all of them whether the same color or not had very different personalities. Now I have 2 ginger tabby cats and one is very outgoing and friendly with strangers or friends and the other one hides under the bed. Both are cuddle bugs with me but with Fiona if there is someone else in our home she's under the bed.
