Be sure to buy the best cat water foundation for this kitty, as they drink a lot of water.

3. Lilac Colored Cat

I bet you are surprised to find that this color is here! But I am warning you, this is not the color you are thinking of right now – this is not purple or violet or lavender! That lilac-colored cat can only be found in Alice in Wonderland (The Cheshire cat, remember?) The lilac color we are referring to here is a diluted chocolate color, which is also a dilution of black!

4. Chinchilla Colored Cat

Cats are greatly misunderstood creatures. Sometimes, their love language is perceived as annoying and destructive. But maybe if only we could learn to appreciate and understand our cat's love language we'll get touched, and melt right there. Like scratching at furniture – cat's seem to do this jut for the sake of doing so but it is actually your cat telling you that he/she likes you and is therefore, claiming ownership of you.

What you can do is put some sisal or mats over furniture your cat frequents – in which case, your furniture is protected while your cat can do his/her thing.

5. Fawn Colored Cat

Do you sometimes get startled when your cat suddenly climbs on your lap or on your back and starts to seemingly ‘massage' you? Well, this free massage is what you call kneading in cats. Cats who love their humans usually do this (but of course cats who do not do this to their humans doesn't mean that the cats do not love them). Getting a cat is like getting your own personal masseur. It is a win-win situation for you and your cat!

6. Color Pointing Cat

Sometimes you will wonder why your cat is so "clingy". You know, you're obviously busy doing something and your cat just suddenly shows its butt to your face or rubs its body all over you, invading your own space. There's this also what some call as head bonking, where your cat bonks its head towards your head or your hand or any other body part.

Yeah, those situations are almost always familiar. Well if your cat does this, then your cat surely loves you. It may come off as annoying but is actually cute and funny. It is just your cat’s way of showing their affection for you. Your cat just wants your attention so much and it simply wants you to maybe pet his/her head or have some playtime session.

7. Chocolate Colored Cat

Dogs are not the only ones who go up their humans to greet them. Cats do too! When you see your cat approach you with its tail pointing up, it just means that your cat is very pleased to see you! Your cat might even go in for a pet and some attention from you. They may not look as eager as dogs, but hey at least now you know that they actually love you every time they do this to you!

8. Cream Colored Cat

Do you remember moments with your cat, when he/she just stares at you blankly (eyes half closed, or almost looks like as if your cat is in a trance) and slowly blink its eyes on you? Well, no need to get weirded out – it means they love you! It is your cat’s way of saying that they like you and that they are really comfortable with you around.

Aside from their body language, research shows that cats do a lot of talking using their eyes. Gayle Hickman of petful tells us about how this behavior is often referred as your cat giving you the “kitty kiss”.

9. Rosettes Colored Cat

This is funny and heart-warming at the same time when you realize what your cat is thinking when they do this to you. Do you sometimes wake up to a weird object, not knowing where it came from? Or your cat bringing you dead stuff like small birds, lizards or even rats? Or do you find yourself in a situation where your cat is eagerly and happily grooming you, licking at your hair or patches of your skin? Well, no matter how bizarre these actions are – all of them mean that your cat has a lot of affection for you! And that you are a helpless human that needs caring and nurturing by them.

Your cat probably thinks that you are too weak to get your own food, that’s why it already does the job for you. Oh, and about the grooming? Your cat might be thinking that you are not capable of grooming yourself, given that it does not see you do the same as he/she does. Our cats can be weirdly sweet, I tell you!

10. Brown Colored Cat

Here’s the last item on this list but there’s certainly more of them out there. If your cat loves to sleep around you, or maybe even on you – then your cat deffo loves you! There’s no question in that. They feel at ease with you that they want to be around you even if it is at their most vulnerable - during sleep.

11. Torties Colored Cat

Torties is the nickname given to the Tortoiseshell color found in some cat’s coats. The coat color Tortoiseshell got its name from being a close copy of the patterns found on the back of a tortoise’ shell – there is really a great resemblance.

Surprisingly, cats that have this coat color are largely coming from the female population. It is extremely rare for male cats to sport this coat color, and usually when they do they are most likely to become sterile.

Kaleidoscope world!

The coat colors mentioned above are the so-called rare coat colors in cats, we haven't even talked about the common coat colors – there are just so many of them! Looking at all these cats – with varying colors, varying patterns, varying designs and textures is like looking through a kaleidoscope. It is amazing to look at their similarities and differences, distinguish and recognize each cat's unique characteristics!
