My cat, Panda, is named so because:
When my friend, L, and I first got him we were looking at him whilst sitting on her bed talking about what to call him. At the time his name was Elvis, which was just terrible and didn’t suit him at all (I don’t know who comes up with these names at the RSPCA, seriously, people). She had a stuffed Red Panda on her bed. I looked at it, looked at ‘Elvis’, who is ginger with the same fluffiness and cutely placed stripes as the Red Panda, and said, “What about Panda?” and L instantly agreed.
The bottom line is that he is named Panda because he is just as cute, if not more so, than these ridiculously cute Red Pandas and I just thought I’d share because of all the cute.

And another one of Panda for good measure:
