My Wife and I adopted Miss Kitty as a stray 4.5 years ago from a co-worker who found her on her on the back porch.
She was quite an old kitty but did not want to send her to the pound, where she would no doubt be euthanized.

My co-worker pleaded in tears for us to come to her home and at least see this stray cat.
Neither one of us were "cat lovers," however, when Miss Kitty (that's what we named her) met us for the first time, she came right to our feet, looked up with those golden eyes and gave a pitiful little "meow", we instantly fell in love her.
The vet estimated her age to be 15-18 yrs. She was deaf, hyper thyroid, and had dental issues.
But that didn't prevent us from loving her and making many trips to the vet for medications.
She was a very sweet cat, never scratched us, climb on furniture, nor entered a bedroom without us giving her permission. She was a very intelligent, sociable kitty, and a pleasure to have in our home.
She was also our business mascot, for we sell Halloween products as a side business. We never knew her breed until browsing this site.
She has the same brown black color contrast as Arthur, depending on the type of lighting. I've attached some pics. Sounds like this specie is a good quality pet!
Miss Kitty passed away May 15, 2010 of the infirmities of aging. We deeply miss her, and hope some day we will adopt another rescue kitty in her honor.
