Although there are certainly colors that are especially beautiful, I've never chosen a kitty because of his color -- it's always the personality, the instinctive sense that this kitty is meant for me, y'know? I'm sure that's true for many of us.
For many years, our family had only blue tabbies, and I'll always love them -- but my first kitty as an adult, in my own home, was my Clyde, and now I just melt when I see a white-and-black cat. I used to call them Holsteins; now I call 'em Clydiekitties.
I've always loved calicos, too, and our Sassy is a gorgeous mostly-black calico, medium-haired and massively fluffy... she's a glamour girl!
And now that we have St. John, I don't know how we managed all these years without a red tabby. He's the most spectacularly beautiful little guy, medium-haired and very fluffy, with a fabulous foxtail that makes him look like a cousin to one of Kitytize's lovely Somalis.
I also just love those fluffy black tabbies with white chin and paws, and white around their eyes.
And like everyone else, I'm dazzled by Bengals. Their coats are just stunning!
And in a close sixth place: all the other cats in the world.
