Lots of companies already have products in colors along the lines of the hottest shade for 2015, like the Imperial cat scratcher, Gwen Gear collar, Jax & Bones Bloom bed, Dog Is Good tee and The Cat Ball.

Looking for a simple way to show that you — and your pet — are the hippest cats (or dogs) in town? Here's your chance! Pantone just released its 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala, "naturally robust and earthy wine red," and we found a handful of pet products available in this gorgeous hue.

If you're not familiar with the Pantone Color of the Year, allow us to enlighten you. Pantone is known as the global color authority. Each year, the company selects a new color by searching for color influences, which come from all aspects of life: fashion and entertainment industries, the art world and popular travel destinations, to name a few, as well as technology, the availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming major sports events. You can expect to see even more Marsala throughout the next year, used as a solid but also as an accent in graphics and prints.

And, interestingly, the color chosen one year has little bearing on the next year's selection. In the last five years, Pantone's Color of the Year selections have included Radiant Orchid (2014), Emerald (2013), Tangerine Tango (2012), Honeysuckle (2011) and Turquoise (2010).
