There are actually a couple of old Mudcat threads about the names of Mudcatters' pet cats. The threads have some delightful posts.

They are also closed.

Shall we begin anew?

We do not currently have any cats, but we've had a bunch of them over the years. We gave them various names, but could have saved time and energy by just naming them all "Coyote Food", which is what they all wound up being anyway.

Oh no Bee, really? That's dreadful. We had a fox that came often to our large garden in the last house. He was a huge orange chap, and I was worried he might try to take one of our cats. But he never did. (Not sure if a fox is a match for a cat)

Right. Some of the names I can remember (long life, many cats!):-

Binky, Ginger, Sooty, Snowy, Simpson-Sam, AndyPandy, Gussie, Solo, Misty, Minty, Simon, Murphy, Smokey.

There are loads more, but this selection shows just how unimaginative I am when making up cat names.

We took in rother and sister cats from the Cats Protection League who had been inbred. The male had six toes on each foot so we had to call him O'Sé. His sister looked permanently startled to it was obvious that she should be called O'Socht. Sadly she died at about six but he is still going strong at 11.

Only had two. Our previous one was called Kattegat. Our current one (named by our younger daughter a few years ago) is Nick Newton Jonah Meowington (AKA Nick). Named partly after one of our freelance Supervisors.

My wife was due to take some documents to him at the airport from where he was flying out to a job so we had a photo of him stuck to the fridge so she'd recognise him. Our new mainly black kitten had a little white patch on its chin that looked just like Nick's beard, so YD insisted that we call him after the Supervisor. She added the other names "just to embarrass you when the vet calls out his name in the clinic". Didn't work, the veterinary nurse always just says "Nick please"!

had a fair few cats over the years, won't list them all - J has been taken to naming them after his long-deceased great aunts and uncles!
Before that there was an Oedipus ( I think all the neighbours heard it as 'Eedapuss'?) and if I had had an overlapping female she would have been Jocatsa (OK I do know the correct name is Jocasta!)

Later we had a ginger tom we named Kilkenny who was keen on rough and tumble ('fighting like Kilkenny cats')

thread drift -- my current group of chickens are:

Speckle, Blanche, Velvet, Greysmoke. Yellowlegs, Spice, Bessie and Peter
Previous ones included Boris and Sybil,Splotch, Austin and Harry (!)Ginger, Tufty. All of whom variously succumbed over the years to Mink / Pine Marten(s) / fox and someone's Husky that slipped the lead.

Re coyotes and foxes. Keep your cat inside the house, both for its health and for the sake of wild birds. Many small pets who have been supposedly killed by coyotes have actually been taken by great horned owls, which are increasing in American suburbs.

Kattegat, great name!

Mittens (not my idea), Max (also), then I started naming them - Garlic, Sebastianne (because all litters have a Sebastian in them) who was called Basta, Pheobe and Sophia (light and wisdom), Galya (after my granny, pr. Gaia), and Fudge (aka Little Puss). Don't know what happened to Mittens, Garlic and Basta died on the highway, Pheobe and Sophia ran away, Galya and Fudge died old, we haven't gotten a new cat yet. I'm a dog person without the time for a dog.

Right now I have inherited a giant tiger skin I was looking for a name for, thinking something Kzinti. How will a cat like that, I wonder?

My previous cat was named Caitlin. Someone dumped her in the campground at the previous state park I was working at. She was all skin and bones (which should have been my first clue she was mentally defective, the campground was swarming with slow-moving, fat, simple-minded rodents) and had recently given birth. We never found the kittens, I suspect they were probably still-born due to how emaciated she was. She wasn't supposed to come home with me, but Animal Control never called me back after repeated voicemail messages were left. So she came home "just for the night". I should have known better. I should have realized that cat had found a permanent home before I even left work for the night. We'd been feeding her small amounts canned cat food every couple of hours, and at the end of my shift, she had stretched out full-length along the top of my desk, put a paw out on my left arm while I was filling out my end-of-day reports, and gone to sleep, purring happily to herself.

I took her to the vet the next day, to make sure she didn't have anything contagious that my landlord's cats might catch, and while at the vet asked J-boy if we could keep her. He said "NO! She's mean to the dog!" Which then led to my asking if he'd give it a week and think it over (and promising not to say another word about it until he made his decision, which I kept to). Two days in, he asks me if we should call her something other than "Hey You" or "Kitty-Kitty". I said: "no, you don't name things you're not keeping" and left it at that. Day four rolled around and we were on our way home from the bar and he said "I think we should name her Caitlin." I looedk at him and said: "well, I guess that means we're keeping her."

Later, I asked him where he got the name. Turns out, he was reading a book about Caitlin Thomas at the time.

Some very imaginative and clever names on here, I feel mine are a bit pathetic. But I always tried to find names that one could call easily and not make the neighbours die laughing. My friend had a cat called Aristoteles, and she admitted she felt mighty silly calling that from her back door to get her cat in.
One of our neighbours here in the village has two cats, Marmite and Spirit. I'd feel a bit daft shouting "Marmite!" but I notice she's reduced it to 'Marmie'.
I have a very thick folder full of photos and Pedigree charts of all my many cats. (The strays I've taken in have no pedigree of course) But I get a bit tearful looking at them all. So much love from them for so many years...

Let's see:

My first cat was Emmeline Pankhurst, a noted punisher of the tomcats who strolled the German village where I lived at the time.

Years later, when I finally managed to escape apartment house living, Black Maria and her sister Batsy came into my life, quickly followed by Perdita (also black), a foundling kitten we raised on Carnation milk and weaned on Cream of Wheat. Batsy disappeared in a snowstorm at the age of about three and Maria was struck by a car at five; Perdita lived to be 19, and died of a stroke in the act of leaping for the kitchen table.

Alexander the Great, another desperate stray, was a long-haired sand-coloured tomcat of substantial size; he, too, died young, of kidney stones. Lucy was a black-and-white stunted starveling found hunting for food in a garbage can behind a convenience store; when we started feeding her, she grew to the size of a hassock, though her early privations led to bone deformities and, later in life, crippling arthritis. She lived well into her teens and died of breast cancer, of all things.

Cecil was yet another stray, a black tomcat who marched into the house when I took the garbage out and left the door open. I named him after Cecil Rhodes because he was small and pushy, but he turned out to be a real charmer. He died at five of pancreatic disease. A few months later, Bill arrived at the back door, hammering with his paws and meowing loudly for rescue. He was filthy, sick, wounded and starving, he had clearly had enough of life on the street. Bill was named after W.H. Davies, author of the Victorian memoir "Diary of a Super Tramp".

After Bill came Rosie, originally known as Tokyo; we added Rose because who could call a cat Tokyo?. Rosie is a Tortoise-shell Point Oriental Shorthair (she looks like a Siamese with a bad streak job) who was foisted on us by the wife of my old college buddy James. Rosie left our household three years later because, after Bill's death, she took to being the only cat in the house with a too much enthusiasm; when we acquired two kittens, Watson and Isobel (now three and a half years old and running the joint), she terrorized them to the point of breaking down their litter training. Rosie is now the light of an aging bachelor's life, having been adopted by an old school pal of my brother's.

Watson and Isobel are the current incumbents, two black cats from a litter of nine in which all the male kittens were given names beginning with W; we were just thankful that we didn't end up with Wendell. Isobel was originally named Cupcake, which we thought she would grow out of, so we renamed her for Isobel Bayrakdarian, who is also dark and beautiful.

And that's the lot of them -- so far!

We had several house kitties-- full on pets-- but she was a treasured stray who haunted and patrolled the back porch. Till she showed up preggers so we caught her, raised the litter, found them homes except one, spayed her, and gave her an indoor domain to share with her very tall, terminally stupid and generally hapless son Tip. She never has gotten a 2nd name.

Had two kittens brought into the household when I was sharing a house in London years back with Bonnie Shaljean and others - one we thought was female and who was cute and delicate we called Felicity, and the other we thought was her brother and a bit clumsy and ungainly and we called that one Dunstable. Later discovered both were female, but we'd got used to calling her Dunstable by then.
Current cats - Persia (well, I'm not sure how she spells it) chose her own name. She'd been a rescue cat and had been called Mrs Fairford at the shelter, but as she was only a kitten that seemed wrong. We tried names out beginning with "purr" as she was beginning to demonstrate how loudly she could do that and when we reached "Persia" she said "ow", or words to that effect, and did that repeatedly each time we said the name, so that's who she is. We had a Bengal cross kitten for a while and he was Fitzroy as he was the offspring of a pedigree Bengal male and pedigree Burmese female (so the bastard son of a king). He was an adrenalin junky and tried to cross the A40 at night in December (and he was grey) ... we now have the splendid Mylo who fits his name well as again a part pedigree, quarter Bengal who is full of character. Both cats are also Mogs, Moglet, Furs and whatever other names come to mind. They know who we mean.

When one buys a pedigree cat which is registered with the UK General Cat Fancy, the breeder has their own prefix followed by their choice of name. Ours were/are all pedigree Siamese cats. One breeder had Tintally as their prefix, and our little Minty was called Tintally Toluene. His brother was Tintally Othello. Another was Ashmere Augustus. Then there was Applejack Simpson. All far too posh for us, so we changed their names forthwith.

I had two cats; a black one and a ginger tom, arrived in the back yard one day as big kittens. The black one got entangled in paint stripper stripped paint and had to be bathed. Cats can hover, wider than a bath. Meanwhile the ginger tom sat alongside shrugging its shoulders. Black cat disappeared and never returned. Ginger (ex)tom stayed all its days.
Called Roland.
Two children (1 of each) from somewhere down the street would knock on the door and ask if they could play with Roland, who was happy to oblige.
Years later one day in the Laundrette in came a beautiful woman with red hair. "Don't you remember me?" No. "I used to come and play with Roland"

'Fag-Ash'? Gah! 'Smokey' - excellent name (one of ours is 'Smokey')

The lovely little family-up-the-road have called their new ginger cat 'Ronnie', which for some reason always makes me laugh.

'Ronnie' has teamed up with 'Spirit' (cat-from-hell) who is leading him astray in a big way. They were seen together only yesterday, striding across the ridge pole on the roof of a neighbour's bungalow, trying to catch some pigeons. The lady inside said it sounded like hob-nailed boots tramping overhead.

'Spirit' already has a housemate called 'Marmite', but it appears 'Marmite' is law-abiding and boring, and they don't play together. I reckon 'Spirit' is aiming to form a gang of hoodlums. They'll probably be dealing catnip soon on the street corner.
