We all have heard the superstitions for humans; blondes have more fun, red heads are fiery and passionate, and brunettes are clever and witty.  You'll be surprised to know that veterinarians, avid cat enthusiasts, and scientists have actually found some ground arguments that there is a strong connection between a cat's personality and the color of their fur.

Gray tabby cats are descended from a small group of African wildcats from about 10,000 years ago.  These cats tend to be loners and play aggressively.  They enjoy hunting outside, which may make it difficult to keep a grey cat inside.

These cats are resourceful and clever.  They are very active and are great at catching mice.  These cats are usually less affectionate than other colored cats, but they are friendly.

Brown Cats

Brown cats aren't very common because the small gene pool that it's associated with doesn't occur frequently. These very friendly and intelligent cats are playful and use their voice a lot.

White Cats

Most cats that are purely white are extremely high risk for deafness, and a majority of blue eyed, white cats are born deaf.  These cats usually have skin disorders and poor vision, it's no wonder why these cats are usually timid.  White cats often follow their owners and like to stay close by.

Black Cats

The black cat is more related to their wild ancestors and were first spotted in the wild before they became domesticated.  These cats can have a wild, unpredictable side, but they can be friendly.  Sometimes they are stubborn due to their independent personality, but they also thrive on companionship.  These cats also tend to roam over a very large area, so if your black cat is outside; make sure you have tags with a number on them.

These cats are usually female, but about 1 in 3,000 are male.  These cats are usually docile but have unusual personalities.  If you have a calico, you just have to learn who they are to find out more about their personality.

These cats carry a dilution gene.  Orange cats will appear cream, black cats will be blue or gray, and chocolate cats will have a lilac appearance.  Despite the color they have came from, they have their own unique personality.  These cats are often curious and their mischievousness can become bothersome to their owners.  They often chase invisible objects and can sometimes appear crazy as they run from one end of the house, to the other.

All cats are unique and have their own personalities; sometimes they can be inherited or influenced by other cats, but oftentimes, they are just themselves.
