I know how disappointed you feel. As an ex-breeder, I also believe one has the closest bond with a kitten that chooses its owner, and I suggest you overlook any particular color or pattern. It's nice if it happens, but you will be much happier with a kitten that chooses you and wants to play with you and be with you. The next time you go kitten shopping, try and spend some time (at least an hour minimum) by just sitting on the floor and playing with the kittens, and see which one comes to you, wants to sit in your lap, wants to be beside you, or keeps coming back to you. Kittens are busy bodies and want to play, but they will indicate (or not) a preference to be with you.....the one that does that will have a closer bond with you. My white cat Alkee chose me.....I really don't like white as a color, much prefer torties or patched tabbies, but she was very definite that she wanted to be with me. At 7 y.o. she still likes to be in my lap or close to me and at this moment as I'm typing she's lying on my foot!
