  Panda was an adorable little black and white Exotic Shorthair who was born September 12, 2006.  Both my husband and I fell madly in love with him from the first day we got him.  We debated on names, and after only having him for a couple of days, I was going to name him Teddy, but then, all of a sudden Panda popped out and, thus, for the short time we had him, he was our beloved Panda Bear. We got him when he was around 4 months old and began showing him.  Panda was made for the shows.  He loved the attention and he absolutely loved the people.  He had a photo session with a photographer and had an absolute ball.  He was an amazing boy. When he was six months old he got an ear infection which left him with a permanent head tilt, thus his show career ended very abruptly.  That didn't deter him and he learned to cope with his tilted head.  My vet said it gave him character, and he was still our Panda who loved everyone.  He had so much fun and was a joy to be around.  He constantly kept us laughing with his cute little antics.  Little did we know it would be short lived.
