I adoped my cat from ashelter after my other cat died in December. He was 8 months old. So he already had his name. It is "RAGS". He is a ragdoll cat, very pretty. gray 7 white. What is your cats name, and why did you name it that?

Four cats live here. Josie, a calico, was named for her coat of many colors. Peaches, a champaign tabby, came with her name from Georgia, so it fit. Arthur, a white Turkish Angora, is a king. His original name was R-2. Paisley, another calico, got her name because it just fits her. My Rainbow Angels, Divot and Baffy, got their names from their former people. Their dad was a golf-pro. Hence, Divot; a baff is the name of an obsolete golf club used to scoop the golf ball out of the carriage ruts. I have a sonnet about how cats get names in my award-winning book, Cat-House Sonnets, 100 poems celebrating cats. Ask me about it.

I posted a discussion like this not too long ago- Meeca is a combination of Micah and Meesha. Nemo is named just because he was comical looking. So the next cat had to be Dory and that name fits her so well. The last cat is IBK, Itty Bitty Kitty because she was a runt and so tiny. Shes not tiny any more.. she answers to Bitty.

Herman our 13 year old cat - Herman is one of 6 cats that own us. He was left with us when our son got married. Herman has become and old crotchety cat lately.
Herman, all black,My oldest Son named him after a character he read about in a book he liked. He is now 13 years old. My son left him with us when he got married. Salsa is a short haired spicy calico. With some sass thus the name she is two years old Simba a long hair all black cat she is shy and we just liked the name Skritchy is a half wild gray kitty that comes around and very shy, My son just called him skritchy and I have no idea why at all. It was some private joke of his when I asked he would just chuckle. Syd for Obsydian all black and a rascal and very spoiled by my 35 year old son who lives with us Cheeto an orange striped long haired male. I saw someone on Gather who had a cat orange named Chedder and his name inspired me to name our little yellow kitty (He is a big hairball now LOL) Cheeto.

I didn't name any of my cats. Columbus and Waffles were named at the shelter, and I liked the names so much that I kept them. Then there is Mimi, who was named by her previous owner. Speaking of cat's names, I saw a cat name book at the library. That book included some of the cutest and funny names for cats.

My duaghter just got a kitten a few months ago and she named it midnight. First of all, it is black and secondly she already had one named that but it wandered off and she has always missed it anyway.

Years ago I also had a rescue cat called Blackie as he was already named he was the size of a panther rather than a cat thoug and the two I have now are named Wilfred and Sybil and my teenage daughter named them these names as kittens, I have just asked her now why she named them thos names and she can give me no reason bless. They are both such characters though, Wilfred is such a handsome boy and Sybil is such a naughty cat, she nips at ankles in the morning until you pay her attention and feed her and hides and jumps out at you when you least expect it. Ellie :D
