. I am new to the site too, Cool Huh! Just from personal experiance, and nothing else, when I was younger, I had to have a money cat, i went around looking at shelters and color was the most important thing! Wrong! For me anyway. I got the money cat and pardon my french, she was a bitch! So from then on I decided to go for personality first and color second. Like I said just my experiance. But every orange cat I have run into have been super friendly, maybe it's there nature, I don't know!
So Sorry to hear about your cousin...time & kitties heal all wounds.
