We've all seen the ads for those dating services which match people based on their personality profiles. But what if you could pick your cat, based on their personalities? According to a recent article, many animal shelters are starting to do just that.
The program is aimed at ending human-animal mismatches, a common reason cats are returned to a shelter after they're adopted.
The article, which can be found http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080514/ap_on_re_us/cat_personality,
talks about how the program rates the animals on confidence and sociability. It then tallies those assessments to place the cat into nine personality categories, which can be matched with a family's situation and desires.
