As someone who adores cats, I find myself endlessly scrolling through pictures of these feline creatures. It doesn’t matter if they have a polka-dotted, striped, or solid coat, cats from all over the world never fail to amaze us with their natural beauty. Recently, while browsing through my Tuxedo Cat Lovers group on Facebook, I stumbled upon the most delightful sight in the form of a black and white kitty with the perfect spots.
Known as “cow cats” by some, Ziggy – also known as Ziggy-Kai – is a rescued cat that will capture your heart with his striking coat pattern. I reached out to his owner to see if I could feature this stunning cat on my website, and thankfully, she said yes!
So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Ziggy-Kai, a rescued cat with an incredibly cool spotted coat that will surely win your heart!
Ziggy-Kai, the handsome feline and his cat mom live in the sunny city of Seal Beach, California. When he’s not basking in the sun or seeking attention, he loves to pose for the camera. If you’re keen to know more about this charming cat, read on!
Ziggy-Kai was adopted from the Huntington Beach Humane Society in February 2020. His owner had been searching for a rescue cat for about three months and was hoping to find a black and white tuxedo cat, similar to his previous pet named Buddy, who lived until the age of 14.
Initially, the cat was named Marily, but it didn’t suit him. After much deliberation, Ziggy was chosen due to the zigzag lightning bolts on both his legs. Kai was added to his name as it means ‘ocean’, making Z Kai the perfect name for this adorable feline.
Can you describe his personality?
He’s an extremely outgoing cat and is not shy at all. He enjoys observing the birds on my patio and I’ve even trained him to go on walks with me using a leash. Whenever I’m feeling down, he’ll come right up and look at me with concern. Needless to say, I’m very fond of this feline companion.
What are his interests and hobbies?
He loves playing with strings and small, fuzzy balls. He can even fetch items and bring them back to me, which is quite impressive for a cat. He craves attention and enjoys having my friends and clients over to visit. While he’s very sweet and special, there are times when he can be a bit annoying because he always wants to be the center of attention.
What’s a unique quality about Ziggy-Kai that I want people to know? Well, he’s quite the character – one of his favorite things is taking a shower and getting his hair washed. He also loves sticking close to me all the time, but I make sure to let others shower with him once a week. When anyone comes over, he immediately lies down at their feet and brings a smile to their face. Overall, he’s the best companion I could ask for!
I want to express my gratitude to Nina, Ziggy’s owner, for granting me permission to share Ziggy’s pictures and tale with everyone. If you know anyone who loves cats and would appreciate Ziggy’s distinctiveness, feel free to share his story with them!
