I'm afraid I don't agree with this view at all. Why would you want someone to have a pet they don't want? It's the people who take on pets and then dump them that are at fault.
If you aren't going to look after an animal properly because it's the wrong colour or it isn't young enough for you then you don't deserve an animal. People dump pets because they don't consider the responsibility of looking after them, not because they got the wrong colour.
Not to say take the first thing you find. I don't know if this applies to cats, but with dogs you obviously need a breed and size of dog that matches up with you. What it looks like and how old it is (with the exception of very young or very old) shouldn't really play a part.
I used to know someone that bashed kittens over the head. Because they didn't bother to spay the cat. Farmers
