To get the custom option at categories page in magento show the feasibility and better access of product listing. to get the option need to use following code:

$productSku = $_product->getSku(); 
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product'); 
$productId = $product->getIdBySku( $productSku ); 
$product = Mage::getModel("catalog/product")->load($productId); 
$attVal = $product->getOptions();
 $optStr = ""; 
 // loop through the options 
 foreach($attVal as $optionKey => $optionVal) {
 //$optStr .= "<br/>"; //$optStr .= $optionVal->getTitle().": "; 
 $optStr .= "<select style='display:block; clear:both;' name='options[".$optionVal->getId()."]'>";
 foreach($optionVal->getValues() as $valuesKey => $valuesVal) { 
 $optStr .= "<option value='".$valuesVal->getId()."'>".$valuesVal->getTitle()."</option>"; }
 $optStr .= "</select>"; } echo($optStr );
