    I am 100% sure that each one of us would reach out to a cat or kitten in need regardless of coat color so this isn't about which cat you'd pick if you had to adopt one from the shelter. It's more about a cultural preference, if you like. If you had to choose a cat sculpture, for example, is there a particular cat color/pattern that you prefer? I wonder how many of us can say that they prefer black cats, or tuxedos or tabbies, or any other specific cat coat color or pattern.

    Whether the answer is yes or no, could you do me a huge favor and take this short survey. If you say yes, it would be awesome if you could add a post saying which coat color/pattern you adore and why. Thanks!

    Black and white tuxedo cat. I say this because the one who owns my heart was a black and white tuxedo. I will always have that special spot for cats with this coat pattern.

    Since I was looking specifically for an orange cat when I adopted Ruby, I guess my answer is "orange". :winkcat:

    But I love all cats, even the big ones like lions and tigers.:catrub:

    I don't know how much help I will be regarding this question since I adore more than just one coat color and from time to time my preference has changed. Originally I was drawn to black, smoke or gray colors, then bi-colors and since adopting Carleton I love the cream or golden shades. What can I say, I'm a multi-colored coat person. ;)

    I put no but I would have preferred a 'sort of' button because I fall for so many but maybe this type of colour (Google search) Ohh...darn it, I just can't make my mind up, there's too many.

    Orange, cream or golden cats.
    All of my 8 cats were orange or cream. Each and every one of them were the loves of my life.

    Ginger cats. My grandmother gave me a stray ginger when I was a teenager. It was given to me but was a family cat that remained with my parents when I moved out. As an adult, two have crossed the bridge and I currently have four at home. Of those six only one is a ginger, my little buddy Taz.

    Black cats and I have been drawn to each other like magnets since I was a child.

    There are some I like more than others: very dilute points, Siamese, and Burmese, but I can't stand those Siamese voices. I like torties and calicoes the least, although I've had three of them! Obviously, personality matters the most to me.

    I love them all! :biggrin:

    But I guess I do have a soft spot for cats with odd markings that some might consider ugly or a little goofy. Oh, like a splash of color under the nose that looks like a crooked moustache, so many colors and patterns that they look like they were cobbled together out of spare parts, etc. I just find that sort of thing weirdly endearing. :-)

    Black cats for me. All the ones we've had have been really special. Tuxedos might be considered a sub-class of black cats and those are wonderful, too.

    Anything with fur and purr is great to me.
