As a feline enthusiast, I find myself endlessly fascinated by the beauty of cats from around the world, regardless of whether they sport spots, stripes, patches, or solid coats. Recently, while browsing through my Tuxedo Cat Lovers group on Facebook, I stumbled upon the most mesmerizingly-spotted black and white kitty cat.
Known colloquially as “cow cats” by some cat aficionados, Ziggy (also known as Ziggy-Kai) is an adopted cat whose captivating coat pattern immediately catches your eye. After getting in touch with his owner, I was thrilled to discover that she was happy to allow me to feature this impeccably stylish cat on my website!
Therefore, without any further delay, I present to you: Ziggy-Kai! This rescued cat boasts an awe-inspiring array of spots that are sure to capture your heart.
This charming feline, along with his cat mom, resides in the sunny city of Seal Beach, California. When he’s not basking under the warm sun and seeking attention from his human, Ziggy-Kai is always ready to strike a pose for the camera! Read on to discover more about this uniquely handsome kitty.
Ziggy-Kai’s journey into his human’s life began in February 2020 when he was adopted from the Huntington Beach Humane Society. After searching for three months, his human had her heart set on a rescue kitty with a black and white tuxedo coat, just like her previous feline companion, Buddy, who lived until the age of 14.
Initially named Marily, it wasn’t long before his human realized that the moniker didn’t quite fit him. After much thought, she decided to call him Ziggy, inspired by the zigzag lightning bolt patterns on his legs. To add an extra touch of uniqueness, she added the name Kai, which means “ocean,” as a nod to the sunny coastal location they call home.
Can you describe his personality?
He’s quite extroverted and not at all shy. One of his favorite pastimes is bird-watching on my patio, and I’ve even trained him to go for walks with me on a leash. He’s very attentive, especially when he senses that I’m feeling down – he’ll come and sit by my side and stare right into my eyes. I just adore this cat.
What are his preferred hobbies?
He’s really fond of playing with bits of string and small, fluffy objects, and he’s remarkably good at playing fetch – he’ll retrieve whatever I throw and bring it straight back to me. He’s a real attention-seeker, and he loves it when my friends and clients come over to visit. Sometimes he can be a bit annoying because he always wants to be the center of attention, but he’s so incredibly sweet and special that we can’t help but love him to bits.

Can you share a unique fact about your furry friend Ziggy-Kai? Well, one of his quirky habits is that he absolutely relishes taking showers and having his hair shampooed. He also adores being around me at all times, but I make sure to give him a weekly shower with company. Besides this, he’s quite the amusing character as he flops onto the feet of anyone who enters our home. Needless to say, he’s definitely my favorite companion.
I want to express my gratitude to Nina, the owner of Ziggy the cat, for giving me permission to share his story and pictures with all of you. If you have a fellow feline enthusiast in your life, don’t hesitate to pass along the tale of this one-of-a-kind kitty!
