Red cats range in shades from the palest beige to the most vibrant dark orange, and can be either shorthair or longhair. They are most often male, but many red female cats can be found. They have warm, loving personalities, but also can be very strong-willed, and are often the alpha cat in a household. We celebrate red cats in December because their color reminds us of cozy fireplaces and holiday colors.
You are invited to share your photos and story of your own red cats on this site, using an easy form. Your story will help prospective owners decide whether a red cat is the right pet for them.
