East Rounton (N.Yorks UK) farm shop had a cat in the veg outhouse, proper brown and black stripey cat, always happy to say hello and advise. Not there last week. Alas puss at about 18yrs is no more. I asked what she was called. Peugeot, as she'd been found as a kitten in an old Peugeot car. Didn't think to ask if they spelled it Purrgeot.

The last two we'll likely have are the present employees, who patrol the laundry/mudroom entry-- a prime entry point for annual persistent barn rats and field mice. These are in no way pets, but they did need names WE use to refer to them-- the cats themselves don't know these names and have no interest in laps.

The elderly female was named Othercat when she joined the crew then on duty because, "No, not that one-- the Other Cat."

Her partner (who she barely tolerates) is a young and miniscule adult tom recently insisting on placement, we've dubbed him Applicant, because if we're still in this house when Othercat passes, his mousing skills may earn him the prime job.

At present, only Othercat is granted the indoor role warmed by the gas wall heater. Applicant is young and active enough to reside in the barn with the cows, preferring that to the basement furnace where his water supply is kept unfrozen; his patrol zone is porch and approach pathways plus basement. He's the only employee we've ever seen stalking (after almost 25 years here) from above in a tree--clever boy. He has another snug and easily defended spot he likes for warmer weather.

We feed them both enough Barn Cat daily to retain their interest in remaining on staff. We doctor them when they need it enough to let us. Marauding ferals routinely adopt our landlord's auld barn but we're picky about which we feed and let nature take its course with the ferals; in our younger years, we did a lot of trap/neuter/release-- but younger folks will have to take that up now.

I think our cats actually have 'slaves' Raggytash! My husband is particularly enslaved, and acts on their every whim. Even as I type, he's in the utility room mucking out their litter tray, and since they are evidently tired of chicken, I see he's opened a tin of tuna for them.

Hi, Eliza! I'm so glad you're back.

Our two come to the table to howl for whatever we're eating, even if it's only bread and cheese. This behaviour is completely political, however. Himself incontinently gives in to the barrage of meowing and frequently flings them a bit of steak or chicken, but they usually poke at it and walk away, mission accomplished. Then, after a few minutes, they're clawing at our knees and tuning up all over again.

Hello there keberoxu! I'm only posting on what I would call 'safe' threads, to avoid all the arguments.

Logie went past the house this morning with his new housemate, the spaniel pup Molly (whom he loves and plays with incessantly) His owners and the two dogs were covered in mud, as were Harry, Marnie and the children from up the road. I always think it's glorious to be covered in mud after a lovely scramble through the fields!

I reckon we're all a bit tired of chicken here by now. My husband sings out his magic word, "Cheeeken!" but the reaction is a bit lacklustre.
No singing with joy, but a sort of silent sigh of resignation. They're utterly spoiled!

Our two horrors Smokey and Murphy have spent the holiday period gorging on large amounts of turkey and today a dish of finely-chopped roast chicken each. Like my husband, they now have pot bellies and can hardly walk.
We relented towards that white beast Spirit and left some chicken out on the front step for him. I watched him wolf it down from our sitting room window. I hope he doesn't get the idea he can start coming back to cause trouble round ours. Ronnie, his sidekick, is infatuated with their new, second dog called Marnie, and we hardly see him these days. Apparently, he's fallen in love an sleeps curled up beside him!

Hi, keberoxu -- Watson and Isobel are in fine fettle, now that the tradesmen have ceased to trample through their little feof. They spent Christmas sitting on laps, even the laps of my brother (a cat person) and sister-in-law (not a cat person), and show unmistakable signs of comfort and joy.

The tiler is coming in January to fix the kitchen floor and install the backsplash. One of his primary tools is a diamond-bit power saw for splitting tiles; it makes a curious shrieking sound that must be heard to be believed. I don't know what the cats will say about that, but I'm fairly sure it won't be Parliamentary.

Had only one cat, and she was really my husband's delight, but she outlived him by quite a few years. We had been riffing on the speech of a character in CS Lewis' Narnia world, the Marshwiggle. Every thing was "this-wiggle" or "that-wiggle," and the anonomyous puddy who was a frozen New Year's Eve rescue was "Puddywiggle!" very soon. This morphed into Peawig, which she remained, a tortie with seagreen eyes and ombre whiskers. She also remained partial to men, and would pick a man's lap over a woman's if she had the choice. Phil Cooper can attest to this.

I had a sealpoint Siamese stray that came with the name Tractor -- probably because when he purred, it sounded like someone plowing the back 40. And Orphan Annie, and Little Tiny White Cat With No Name, Beardsley, and Schnuffles.

Then there was Foolish & Marmalade (litter mates), Peppersass, Blackstone, Calliope, Inquiry, Banjo & Creamsicle (litter mates), and Sabine.

Currently have Rufus (11 years old) and Hunter (8 years old) but who's only been with us since March.

Thanks, Raggytash,
I had been wondering what the name of the cat who only relates to you was called.

Mickey has canine associations for me, re childhood pets.
However Mickey was the most companionable mixed hound in the world
and the name will always seem affectionate to me.

Nothing wrong with calling a cat Mickey Bill. I have one called Mickey ................ his Mother is called Mouse!!

I swear I am telling the truth. She was just a year old when she had kittens (didn't take her to the Vet soon enough) and one of the kittens was VERY timid and he only person he could relate to was myself so I kept him. He's still very timid but I love him to bits.

I named her Mouse because it seemed like a good idea at the time. She's beautiful too, a long haired Tabby.

My first cat 70 yrs ago, was a stray, and my younger brother, 3 yrs old, insisted it be "Mickey"... because he liked Mickey Mouse. It was too hard to explain why a cat named for a mouse was odd, so we shrugged.

My ex wife had a male Siamese that she called "Mr. Magoo" after the cartoon character with the poor vision. Magoo would walk majestically along the porch rail.... and miss his footing and fall in the bushes... then complain loudly that he was pushed... ? He was a classic 'get up a tree and yowl to be rescued' cat... even a small, low tree.

I suppose my favorite cat was the one that may have ensured that my wife had 38 years ago. When we were first acquainted, her cat, "Princess" jumped in my lap and settled down. Rita said, "Princess never does that with a stranger!" We have joked for years that that was the 'stamp of approval' I needed.... Since we've been married 37 years now, I do respect a cat's judgement.

No, Keberoxu, Freya is very friendly and loves to snuggle into whatever jacket you are wearing in between you and the jacket. Her bowel habits aren't that great so you just hope she doesn't snuggle in just after she's been doing her "business"! My son says she really doesn't like the ritual paw-wiping after such "business" episodes, so may at last be getting the message, and is cleaning up her act! Maybe too much information?

Once upon a time there was an unmarried lady who lived in a garret with only her Tom Cat for company.
One night she was gazing out of the window wistfully and wishing she had some male company when a fairy godmother who happened to be passing spotted her, drifted down and asked he why she was so sad.
She explained the cause of her unhappiness, so the fairy godmother pointed with her wand to the Tom Cat curled up on the sofa and FLASH - she turned him into a handsome young man; she took her leave and the woman
The woman, extremely flustered, hurriedly got the young man a drink, made sure he was comfortable and set about preparing him a fine meal, complete with candles and dimmed lights
After the meal, they both sat replete, holding hands and eventually, she snuggled up to him, leaned on his shoulder and began to nibble his ear.
He responded, rather dryly, saying; "I bet you regret sending me for that operation!"

I had friends who decided it was wrong to personify a cat with a human name, so they always referred it her as "cat"
As a young man, I picked up the Liverpool habit of referring to all cats as "Tiger"
Until the cat's death some years ago, it infuriated them no end that she would totally ignore them when called "Cat", but would always respond to "Tiger" - something to be said for the idea that cats are wild animals who happen to live in houses!

Oh dear, just re-read my post of 14th May 17. Very sadly, the much-loved Bowie went missing a week or so after moving house, never to be seen again dead or alive, despite being micro-chipped and a concerted advertising and search campaign with posters, Facebook, vets, animal rescue centres, and going back to the place they'd moved from, but nothing....
After holding out hope for a long time, then eventually having to give up, they now have another cat, Freya, half Bengali, so beautiful markings. She nearly made a bid fir freedom while I was looking after her the other week: wobbling her way along the top of a very high garden fence. Quick grab got her back on home side!

The cat-name discussion did pussy-foot its way to another cat thread,
where we talked about cooking fat.
In my native Great-Lakes region of the USA,
we call it "shortening", as in "short'nin bread" (that's a TUNE),
and there is more than one brand of it.
Never saw a brand "Trex" in the US,
but we have coffee-can-sized tins of "Crisco," thanks to Proctor and Gamble.

Imagine a North American pet cat named Crisco?
