I know the individual words but I'm not familiar with the form used in the left bubble so I am not sure what she is trying to convey.

This is not a grammar point. と is simply acting conjunctively to link nouns while による here means "depending on". Here is how the sentence is parsed:

It depends on the time, the situation, and the cat.

    Since it wasn't mentioned in the question, it's maybe worth mentioning that 時と場合による is something of a set phrase. – Earthliŋ Dec 26 '20 at 9:25
