Think he had a very good name in one of his previous pets----"Twice"






Because if he called it once- it never came.

Since it is a cyclist's cat, naming it is a no brainer.

Cat 1

I once owned a cat. She thought that her name was "Get Down".

Wait till he sees its personality develop, then decide from there. I voted "other." Sleepy, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy...

Maybe start off now calling it Cat 5 and see how it goes? I hear mice are good for interval training.

One of our cats is called Jet. We were going to call it Schuie after Shumacher- but the wife wouldn't allow it. And although a bit old- It can still outdistance the dog up a tree.

Jet would be a good name...unless the cat is slow, that would be a catastrophe.

There is of course only one possible name for his cat. . ."Angst".

I voted "other." He should have it a while to see how its personality opens up as it bonds (as much as a cat bonds) with him. But no matter what he calls it, it won't come when called -- it'll come when it wants to. Such are cats.

Just had a flash -- Kitty Diego. Addresses cat's femininity and the fabled Diegos simultaneously. And it's a simple enough name that even DG can remember it.

This post is cracking me up. So far, I'm leaning toward "Boss."

I suppose you could name it Selina, which was Catwoman's true name in Batman. Or Julie for the lovely Julie Newmar. Or I guess Eartha or Halle if you want.

I have a daughter named Hallie. (And I had never heard of Halle Berry when we named her.)

Cats are evil. They only look cute so they can lull you into relaxing your guard.

I don't quite get the logic of naming my cat "Other."
