Actress plays panther-sitter for designer pal

Former Lost star Michelle Rodriguez almost missed out on pal Anand Jon’s New York Fashion Week party earlier this week when she was put in charge of the designer’s pet panther.

The actress took charge of her friend’s exotic pet, Maya, backstage ate Jon’s Spring 2007 fashion show at the Metropolitan Pavilion and agreed to make sure the big cat got safely to his after-show party at the Stereo club.

But when she arrived at the bash, the music was too loud for the six-week-old panther. Jon’s spokeswoman says, “When the DJ refused to turn the music down, Michelle took the panther back to the car.”

She later partied briefly but took her panther-sitting role seriously and quickly dashed back to the limousine, where the cub was sleeping.
