Coming in January: Mayim Bialik and a Tortie Star in Call Me Kat


Credit: Lisa Rose/Fox

I’ve adored Mayim Bialik since she starred in Blossom in the 1990’s. I loved her in Big Bang Theory. And I just know I’m going to love her even more in her new show, Call Me Kat, because one of her co-stars will be a tortie!

Call Me Kat is based on the British TV comedy Miranda, and stars Bialik as a 39-year-old woman who decides to use the money her parents had been saving for her wedding to buy a cat-themed cafe.

The show will premiere on Fox on January 3.

For more about the show and more photos of Mayim Bialik with the tortie, visit Entertainment Weekly And yes, they got the headline wrong – the cat is most definitely not a calico.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about a new TV show, but I can’t wait for this one!

    This sounds like a great show and I’m glad you said it’s on regular Fox so I can watch it. I have two 17 year old torties so it’s purrfect for me!

    We sure hope it has good writing and is fun with a lot of cat humor.

    They didn’t get the headline wrong. I noticed that especially in the UK, calico and Tortie are interchangeable for them. So either is correct.

      I know in the UK they use the terms interchangeably, but since it’s a US publication, it bothered me 🙂 And that cat is most definitely not a calico by US standards.

        A tortie is soooo different than a calico! Both are incredible – but, Torties have a ‘one person’ only attitude and are simply amazing….

          The cat is definitely a tortoiseshell, as calico is white with patches of orange and black. Torties, like Calicos, are always females, yet they are calling her a “him”. Gorgeous cat! Wish there was more time with the felines, and less silly dialog!

    I haven’t been interested in any of the comedy shows lately, but this one sounds like one I would enjoy.

      I know what you mean, Janine. I have high hopes for this one!

        If they have cats, it’s gotta be good.
