Can you judge a cat by its colour?

Comment on this story
  1. Research suggests putting an 'emotional eater' cat or dog on a diet could worsen its condition by taking away its 'coping mechanism'.
  2. White cats were perceived as somewhat aloof, shy, lazy and calm.
  3. A food-borne parasite that infects domestic cats can get inside the human brain by commandeering special cells of the immune system which it uses as a "Trojan horse" to enter the central nervous system, a study has found.
  4. In milder reactions cats can become jumpy or they suddenly freeze.
