Orange cats are more likely to be males than females, but are they the airheaded species of the feline world? Many hilarious videos of cat antics can be credited to fuzzy, ginger kitties, but can the urban legends be true? Can their sweet, affectionate, and simple nature be attributed to genes? Let’s find out.
Let’s delve into what the online cat community had to say about ginger cats’ purr-personalities.
1. Boys and Girls
The science side promptly educated me; there is probably no clear relationship between your ginger’s coat and personality. Most cat owners report male orange cats are highly affectionate, unlike female orange cats. While females are considered curious, thoughtful, and somewhat reserved, male cats have no such boundaries and will run straight into a wall for no reason.
2. Cool Cats
We’ve got testimonials left, right, center, and under the table, next to your cat waiting to bite your feet. The verdict is that orange cats are the coolest cats you’ll come across. They want to be involved with the family, get loads of affection and will sit and sleep next to you with complete ease. They also get along with kids, which is a plus point if you want to adopt one.
“I think the male orange cats are the golden retrievers of cats.”
3. Intelligent Creatures
I encountered a lot of disagreement about the intelligence of orange cats. Most offered narratives suggest these cats are just as smart, if not smarter. For instance, many people report their orange felines can open doors and cross the street at a green light as they’ve seen humans do.
One cat lover even considers their cat wiser than most people. Another compared theirs to a private investigator. As a cat owner, I would have to agree that it takes precision and skill for my cat to throw the most important items off my table when hungry.
There’s a lot of information about behavioral changes in cats after neutering, like a lack of aggression. However, some believe neutered male kitties get into trouble because of their increasingly curious and friendly nature compared to females. The theory is that their maturation occurs differently after neutering. That may be why so many people joke about them having only one brain cell, which can often freeze up too.
5. Confirmation Bias
This stereotype, as we found, is probably the result of so many people posting dumb moments of their pets online. However, people on the internet have neverending stories that point to another narrative; orange cats are master manipulators.
Think of it like this; they’re friendly, affectionate, energetic, and a pleasure to have around. They can manage to do tricks when the outcome is treaties and are vocal about their needs. But, of course, you’d want them around because of this and give in to almost every demand.
If you don’t know who this cat is, I assume you were never allowed to watch TV or access the internet. But, as someone commented, the most famous orange cat in the world, whose name so many others share, disliked Mondays and enjoyed lasagna. If that’s not smart, we don’t know what is.
7. Hidden Menaces
It’s not all sweet and fuzzy with these cats. Some of them are downright evil geniuses. They make excellent thieves; many cat owners claim their orange cats steal food from the other cats in the house. They have secret hideout spots to stash their hidden treasures and will not like you getting close.
What’s funny is the resemblance between cats and dragons; both hoard shiny things or stuff to play with. We’d be in real trouble if cats were the size of dragons; I don’t want to think of a gigantic feline swooping down from the sky, grabbing all the jewelry and spare change they could find. Although, this might account for the global shortage of hair ties.
People think they’re intelligent dummies. A fond owner speaks of a ginger who would open doors and wake the owner up for food, although his feeder was automatic. He always hoped the owner could force the feeder to speed up the meal delivery. The same cat would run at walls at full speed, a behavior he never learned to stop.
9. Canine Cat
A lot of orange cat behavior is similar to dogs. Not only do many people receive the comfort of emotional support on a bad day from their cats, but they are also offered these cuddles and purrs freely. These cats cuddle their owners through rough patches and can identify emotional turmoil.
One moment that had me emotional was when two cats would walk on either side of a kitten so he could hold their tails; the kitten was learning to walk and needed support.
10. The Memes
The most apparent explanation is just how internet culture treats cats. Orange cats are considered dumb and sweet; black cats are spooky and elegant. White cats are snobby and pampered, and so on.
We agree they can be extra funny because they’re excellent communicators. They’ll greet you at the door, meow your ears off for treats, and purr comfortably after claiming your lap as a cushion. All in all, they’re lovable, adorable, sweet babies.
Why Are Orange Cats So Crazy?
Orange cats aren’t any more crazy than any other color of cat. It’s just a stereotype. Yes, you can get crazy orange cats, but you can get crazy cats in any color or pattern. There’s just this widespread feeling that orange cats are a little more kooky than others, but it’s not true.
