As an avid cat lover, I often find myself browsing through countless photos of these adorable feline creatures. Regardless of their coat pattern – be it polka-dotted, striped, or plain – cats from all corners of the globe never fail to amaze us with their innate beauty. Recently, while scrolling through my Facebook group dedicated to Tuxedo Cats, I chanced upon a striking sight in the form of a black and white kitty with the most perfect spots.
This charming cat, who some refer to as “cow cats,” goes by the name Ziggy or Ziggy-Kai and was rescued by his owner. His unique spotted coat immediately captured my attention, prompting me to reach out to his owner for permission to feature him on my website. Fortunately, she agreed!
It brings me great pleasure to introduce you to Ziggy-Kai, the rescued cat with an ultra-cool spotted coat that’s sure to steal your heart!
Meet Ziggy-Kai, the charming feline living with his cat mom in the sunny city of Seal Beach, California. When he’s not soaking up the sun or seeking attention, he enjoys posing for the camera. If you’re interested in learning more about this adorable cat, keep reading!
Ziggy-Kai was adopted from the Huntington Beach Humane Society back in February of 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 to replace his beloved pet Buddy, who lived until the age of 14.
Initially named Marily, the name didn’t quite fit him. After much consideration, Ziggy was chosen because of the zigzag patterns on both his legs. The name Kai, which means “ocean,” was added to complete his unique and fitting name, Z Kai.
Could you provide an overview of his character?
My cat is incredibly extroverted and has no qualms about approaching new people. He finds pleasure in observing the birds that frequent my balcony and I’ve trained him to accompany me on walks using a leash. Whenever I’m feeling low, he’ll come over and give me a concerned look. Suffice it to say, I have a fondness for this feline friend of mine.
What are his pastimes and interests?
Playing with strings and small, fuzzy balls is one of his favorite activities. Additionally, he has a remarkable skill for fetching items and returning them to me; a feat that is impressive even for a cat. He desires attention and enjoys having my acquaintances and clients visit. Although he is endearing and unique, there are instances when he can be bothersome because he always wants to be the center of attention.
What is something special about Ziggy-Kai that I think everyone should know? He’s a real character! His favorite activity is taking a shower and getting his hair washed. He loves being around me all the time, but I make sure to let others join in on his weekly shower routine. Whenever someone new comes over, he greets them by lying down at their feet, bringing joy to their hearts. All in all, he’s an amazing companion that I feel lucky to have!
I would like to give a big thank you to Nina, the owner of Ziggy, for letting me share Ziggy’s story and photos with all of you. If you have any friends who are cat lovers and would enjoy hearing about Ziggy’s unique personality, please don’t hesitate to share his story with them!
