A cat's color can tell us something about her personality: It sounds fantastic, but as early as 1872, people tried to link certain kitty colors and patterns with different personality types. There were temperamental torties, placid tabbies, and great white mousers.

But is there any truth to these feline stereotypes? There's no hard evidence to back them up, but you can decide for yourself: Check out the kitty color chart below, and see if your cat matches up to her description.

Calicos are loving and lively. In old-world Japan, they were also thought to bring good luck.

Gray cats are the sophisticates of the feline world, but beneath that urbane exterior they just want to be loved. And secretly, they like to let loose. Show them a fishing-pole toy and watch their wild side emerge.

Red cats, often described as ginger-colored, are sweet but sassy. They can surprise you--and often, make you laugh--with their unpredictable behavior.

Tabbies are good-natured and friendly. Lovers of the good life, they're often found curled up by the fire or enjoying some laptime petting.

With their white bellies and formal black coats, tuxedo cats stand out for their independence. They like to explore, and will roam far and wide if they're allowed outside.
