Meet Your Match
Each adoptable cat is assessed based on its level of interest in play, exploring, “talking,” and being the center of attention so that he or she can be placed into one of the nine color-coded Feline-alities. Green cats are savvy and adventurous, orange cats make the perfect companions and purple kitties are quiet, seek affection and stay out of trouble. As an adopter, you also get a color based on your preferences and lifestyle. Adopters are not required to choose a cat with a particular Feline-ality, but the assessment can prepare you for your new love’s response to her new home and help her adjust.
Each adoptable dog is assessed based on its friendliness, playfulness, energy level, motivation and drive, and placed into one of nine color-coded Canine-alities. Some pooches are laid-back “Couch Potatoes,” others are curious “Busy Bees,” and then there are the action hero “Go-Getter” types. As an adopter, you also get a color based on your preferences and lifestyle. You don’t have to choose a pooch whose color matches yours—love at first sight does happen. But knowing the color lets you at least prepare for the way your four-legged love will respond when he gets home.
