Panda

After weeks of discussing the possibility of getting a cat, we ran into this cute gal. We named her "Panda". She seems to be transitioning pretty well so far. She instantly took to the new food we gave her and was using her new litter box within an hour.

Congratulations! GREAT looking face and great name! What a cutie. Looks to be young - maybe a year old??? Thank you for adopting a kitty! Do you have other cats at home?

This is the first pet (excluding fish) we've ever had. I had an outdoor cat growing up, but nothing since I moved away from home (decades ago).

We got her from a lady that works with a local PetSmart on animal rescues. All we know is that the lady saved the kitten from a kill shelter, she's not yet fixed, and is estimated at 6 months old.

Originally we where not going to get a kitten because the ones we've seen have been too rambunctious and we knew the kids would get scratched. This one is EXTREAMLY laid back for a kitten. That combined with a cute face is why we got her now. We had been talking about getting a cat for a while, and we were going to wait until tax season was over to get one. But we casually looked around saying that if we ever found what we thought was a great match, we would get it.

Marcia (or anyone else that might know). I see that you have a similar cat. What do you call this type of pattern? (you know, there's calico, tabby, tortoises shell, etc).

I just call it white and black as opposed to black and white! Panda cat would be a good description!!!!

She's lovely...and her name really fits!

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Black and whites are mostly considered "tuxedo" cats. Google that word and you can see all sorts of examples. A true tuxedo will have a very dignified white bib, white whiskers and white shoes. That is the purist in me. When we adopted our Billy I just happened to get a copy of Cat Fancy magazine and a spitting image of him was on the cover! Every since then I've just been in love with tuxedos, but really, just about any black and white I've ever seen has had the BEST personality. You are lucky as it sounds like you also have a sweetheart!!
