If your cat is a certain color, does that make it more or less likely to be violent? That’s the question posed by Dr. Liz Stelow of the University of California-Davis. She found that tortoiseshell, “torbie” and calico cats — reported a higher frequency of aggression than owners of female cats of other colors.

Cats with cats with gray and white coats, as well as cats with black and white coats, may also have increased aggressive behavior. Of course, the color of a cat is far less important than the personality of the cat. Just find the right cat for your lifestyle and personality and it won’t matter what color that cat might be.
