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?

In the garden today, we had quite a collection of various moggies who live nearby. They seem to like to visit and stretch out on our small patio. They were:-

Alfie
Tiger Lily
Poppy
the dreaded Ronnie (who behaved impeccably for a change, though I had my eye on him!)
and our two, SmokeyPokey and Murphy.

It was like a feline beach in Benidorm! I was tempted to serve cold drinks and pizza, but they'd have preferred slices of chicken I expect.

Freida. Zelda and Frodo, littermates, both of whom died young, tragic deaths, Sadie - a fine country girl of a calico, Lucy (very prissy an inherited cate and mother to Zelda and Frodo before my older sis had the money to get her spayed), P'tui - he arrived in a shoebox from a festival in Ohio, brought by my younger sis and room mate soon after Zelda and Frodo died. A very small, upset kitten foundling who did not relish the long drive. He was spitting and hissing like a wildcat but is still the cat I loved the most. Gentled nicely, loved to stretch out on his back and be gently stroked on his belly from chin to thigh. Also had ythe unfortunate habit of jumping on my chest every morning, promptly at 6:00am, put his nose against mind, and purr loudly to announce it was breakfest time.   Beavo - an inherited cat when I took over an apartment from a friend who went to prison - Maine Coon with amazing green eyes who would jump up in your lap, demand to be petted, then bite hard when she was done with all that foolishness. Henry, a man about town even though neutered young. And finally, Stella. Bottle raised and named by my son when he was in his latency years. A very demanding and independent little b*tch of a cat who truly knew she was the queen of the house. She stayed with hubby post divorce 10 years ago and I still occasionally keep her when he travels. Have to admire her imperious attitude.

Dog and catless for the past 10 years. Occasionally tempted, but finding taking care of ex's and son's cats and dogs,or my neighbor's dog on the occasional weekend has many of the benefits and few of the hassles, and is enough of a fix for me at this time in my life.

My first cat was a long haired black cat that I named Hendrix. He was a gentleman of black cats. We have had many since, most rescues. We never let them outside, so they had long full lives. Some of my faves, though not all of them were named here, Rockefeller, Heathcliff, Worf, Bonnie, Gandalf, Spencer (after Spencer the Rover),
Ariel, Makeeta (Cheyenne for little man, Finish for Sweet one, and Japanese for cordless screwdriver), Misha, Arthur. You can check my facebook page for many pictures of the recent ones.

Our family household was never without cats, often named the ubiquitous Ginger, Tibby, or Whitey. Then along came Black Mumma, a tiny barrel who gave us Greenie & Goldie (the eyes), Smokey & Timmy, Ringo, Honky Cat & Roly-Poly & Spitty-Spatty (all self-evident!). Then came Poosie (from the book "The Kitty Poosies") & Lucy Locket (both sort of Calico cats), and Mum's last, Black Cat & Grey Cat (but known as Sooty & Susie to the Vet!).

Once in my own home, we were lucky to be adopted by the most intelligent, most loving, most unique feline ever, a Tonkinese whom I named Chinu (I was told it meant "little one" in Tamil). After a few years, she agreed to share us with a stray kitten we named Rennie (short for Renoir), who looked like she had a big black moustache painted on and was a very beautiful, long-haired Tortoiseshell.   When we left town, my sister took them on for some years and when she left town, my Mother took them to the Family home and loved them dearly, until they eventually returned to Source.

In my new state, we adopted a grey tabby stray whom we named Harry, a delightful boy who liked evening strolls with you, up the road and back - and his sister, Pretty-Kitty.   Also her kits, Tulla (a ginger, for Tullamore Dew whiskey) and tortoiseshell Matty (short for Matisse). They were all re-adopted when we moved and next came the stray Mordy (short for Mordacious) and Lloyd (Welsh for grey-haired one). Then we were neighbours to Smudge, a very large, food-addicted, black and white boy whose father was a Turkish Van, so the fur was soft with an undercurrent of ginger! Also a little black kit named Voodoo. When we moved to another state, these two came with us.

Years later, once Smudge and Voodles had Gone to God, the vet bestowed "the Clinic Cat" upon us : Hector, a large Jellicle cat, even at 2+ years weighing around 8kgs. We promptly named him "Hector Lysander" - amazing how many people have never heard the song "The British Grenadiers"!!   He is still here, even tho' My Beloved has since "Gone to God" :((   Although Hecky was obtained to help me with a CHF condition, he immediately latched onto my partner and insisted on lying on his chest and purring and kneading amongst his long beard, whenever he saw but the slightest opportunity!! "Hect" leads to lots of word-play (like Hectopascal), but lately, as he has got more vocal, I call him "Jessica Mauboy" (Aussie singer/actress) and comment on his "Mau Mau Uprising" when he gets very insistent!

My friend has had three little jet blacks named Mishka & Pushkin and currently Percy. He is named after Sir Percy Blakeney, aka the Scarlet Pimpernel. He was "Twentiklaus-and-some-Teeth" whilst he was growing from kittenhood, but is still rather too free with his weaponry ?

My sister has had DeLuna, a stunningly beautiful silvery stray but who, sadly, was definitely "moon-touched" and could not really be trusted. Also The Babby, a long-legged black boy who recently returned to Source after 20 years. He was named from dialogue by a wee Scots boy in the 1990 film set in Nova Scotia, called "The Little Kidnappers"!

Cheers!
Rich-Joy, (in Down Under land)

A kitten followed me home in the rain when I was at school one Summer in Connecticut. I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a fraternity during Summer session. I had never had a pet but I named this one Kit and gave her her freedom, i.e. she could stay in my room but also roost on the fire escape where the litter tray was. She was developing her personality, perspicacious and affectionate. In the morning she would bounce off my chest and jump into the metal dustbin and rattle around.
You can persecute a cat and teach it fear. You can wreck its personality if your personality is warped in that way. But there is a native cat endowment of curiosity and courage, and a willingness to fight solo against unknown odds. I've seen a roll of film where a bobcat goes after a large rattlesnake. They appear to be evenly matched, the cat has no reason not to simply back away, but it goes after that snake, nails it dead, makes sure its dead, then puts its head up and walks away. It was a thing to be killed not eaten.

A German author (and composer) whose penname was E. T. A. Hoffmann had a tomcat. The tomcat became the protagonist of a wildly hallucinatory satirical novel. In real life Hoffmann was very fond of his pet cat, who died as Hoffmann was succumbing to terminal illness himself. The author was brokenhearted about the loss of the cat. The tomcat -- in German, KATER -- had the same name in the novel as in real life.

The cat's name was Murr.

I think that one's inspired,
and not just because it reminds me of Mrrzy.

"...ah've got claws in ma paws like a crocodile's jaws and a heid like a fairmer's bull!"

I just love that song keberoxu! I lived in Glasgow for many years, and learned to speak Broad Glasgae.

I always laugh at 'The 'Polis stations roond aboot hae bars on the windae sull, no tae keep the prisoners in, bu tae keep oot Sam the Skull.'

I took in a ginger stray when I had a flat in the Byres Road area of Glasgow. He was renowned for mugging drunks when they came out of the fish-and-chip shop. I used to watch him from my window. He'd wind seductively round their legs,and when the rather unsteady drunks bent down to stroke him, he'd grab their piece of fish and whizz off at high speed. The men's language was terrible!
I couldn't think of a fascinating name for him, so I just called him Ginger.

Spirit and Ronnie are terrorising the neighbourhood. Another neighbour has a pair of blackbirds in her garden, which she feeds. (They come into her kitchen and get sultanas and mince!) The two cat-hoodlums had been watching this from the top of her fence, and decided to have some fun. Luckily she caught them stalking the poor birds, and grabbed her grandson's huge water pistol thing. They got a seriously wet squooshing! (What my sister would call 'an Oh-No Moment'!)

I always see cats as cartoon characters, and find myself putting imaginary speech-bubbles over their heads. One can generally tell what they're thinking, and Spirit & Ronnie give me a good laugh. Those two will end up with an ASBO. (Anti-Social Behaviour Order)

On reflection Mr Red, shouldn't you have suggested 'Fag-Ash' and 'Lil'?

Our super neighbours' grown-up daughter came home from Uni with a nice little cat, called 'Squiggly-Diggly'. Then she changed it to 'Mr Squiggles'. The last I heard he was 'Squiggs'. He must be a bit confused!

All their cats (four now!) come and visit our two, and sometimes there's a positive herd of them stretched out on our patio!
They get on extremely well together.

'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.

We once had two grey strays descend on us. I suggested Smokey and Fag-Ash (cigarette ash).
I was over-ruled, so I suggested the small female was called Jessie and larger male be James.
The names stuck and a few weeks later it dawned on the household they were........


Jessi, James.


Ho Ho Ho.

I once had two children ask me to help them get "their" kitten down from the tree in my garden.
I pointed out that she was my kitten and that she wouldn't come down until she wanted to.

I get lots of children wanting to stroke our two cats. I often sit on the garden bench in the front of the house with Smokey and Murphy, and the children come along for a few minutes' time with us after school. They relax and tell me all about their day, while the cats get longer and longer on the bench enjoying the attention.

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"
