Facts about Panther

  • Breed: Bombay
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: PH
  • Hair: Short
Panther is a beautiful Bombay/ black domestic short hair mix male cat who was born in winter of 2013. He is his foster mom's favorite cat (which says something considering the many competitors) because he is so sweet and loving. It's not surprising that Bombay mixes are sometimes called Velcro kitties because they are so sociable and like people so much. Not only is he good with 2-legged creatures but also the 4-legged varieties: he does fine around other cats as well as the older big dog in his foster home.
Panther's only caveat is that he is hyper-sensitive to fleas: even one flea bite causes him to scratch and consequently to lose hair. This is easily remedied by just being very diligent to stay on schedule with his flea preventative.
Then, true to his name, he has a soft, sleek, and gleaming coat that is like black patent leather. He also has the Bombay mix's mesmerizing round copper-penny eyes that look right through you and make your heart melt. Like Bombay mixes, he has a long, lithe, agile body despite his deceptively heavy, muscular body. Won't you be the one who gives this chip of onyx his lifetime home?
Please don't be superstitious of black cats! You know, Groucho Marx once said, 'A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.' Buster's Friends makes a concerted effort to rescue black cats and kittens from shelters because they are five times more likely to be euthanized than any other color of cat. However, many people who have had a black or Bombay mix cat before end up adopting another one because they seem to have such wonderful personalities and are emotionally stable and well balanced. To find out more about Bombay mixes, watch the 2-3 minute You Tube video that appeared on Animal Planet by Googling "Cats 101 Bombay."
Panther is updated on shots, neutered, dewormed, microchipped, FIV/ FeLV negative, and ready for his indoor-only home. His adoption fee is $100, cash or check payable to Buster's Friends.

About Buster's Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

Buster’s Friends, Inc. is a rescue group and non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned adult dogs and cats as well as puppies and kittens find permanent homes through our network of foster homes. We are not a shelter or facility, and all animals in our program are fostered by individuals who keep the animal in their residence until it is adopted. This foster care gives them specialized care in a nurturing home environment.
Buster’s Friends was created in memory of Jennifer Fields, who spent countless hours rescuing and fostering hundreds of Houston’s homeless animals prior to losing her battle to cancer in May 2009. As a tribute to Jennifer and her dedication, we named the group after her beloved dog Buster, who made the journey to the Rainbow Bridge in August 2008.
