What Color is Your Best Friend?

tortieOwning a pet, like a cat, has been shown to reduce stress and blood pressure levels. Bringing a new cat home can be an exciting time, but it’s important to consider the decision carefully. Choosing the right cat for you, your lifestyle, your family, and your environment will help ensure that both you and your cat have a healthy, happy life.

Many people who love cats and are looking to add a feline companion to the home have an idea of color. Maybe it’s a memory of a cat we once had, or maybe it’s what attracts us most.

tuxedoLife happens, and often adopters find that the cat they are really drawn to is an entirely different color. There is a connection, and that connection to a living, breathing being trumps appearances for all but the most superficial among us.

Some adopters have come in for a specific color of kitty and left with one that is totally different than the color they originally wanted. “As a foster, none of my three cats matches my picture of what I would adopt out of a picture book. But I love all three in their inimitable way!” states longtime MeoowzResQ foster Sylvia Jonathan.

Much like humans, cats should not be judged by their outer beauty alone. While there’s nothing wrong with feeling drawn to an adorable face, make sure you consider more than the cat’s appearance when making your decision.

Look past appearance and “see” with your heart what’s really there. Behind the plain-vanilla exterior of a cat who has been overlooked by many, you may discover a sweet pet with the perfect personality. Those cats are the keepers, no matter what they look like.
