Help me pick a name
Currently my older sister is living in my house. She's in a program that helps her get back into society after being in prison for the better part of the last decade for fraud and other money related crimes. Anyway, she's asked if she can adopt two kittens from the humane society and I said yes because I probably would eventually have brought in a cat or two because I just bought my house and I have no pet restrictions now because I don't rent. One is going to be named Lily, a sweet dilute torti. The other is a hyper exotic-looking black and white beast of a boy cat I can't wait to get pictures of. He's going to be "mine" although I told my sister its her cat because when she can move to her own place she isn't going to split them up so they're both hers. The boy needs a name though. My sister, for some reason, doesn't like his current name of Pillsbury because she says it should be a fat cat with that name. We've already got the typical suggestions of Oreo and Sylvester and other black and white things and neither of us care for. I like exotic names, but she picks more simple/typical pet names. So we need people to throw some names at us. Are you up for the challenge?
White paws? "Mittens" is quite obvious. Any markings he has which have a special shape? Choose a name from that.
I saw a pic on FB of a missing cat named Wishbone. On his black back was a wishbone shape in white fur!:)
Hmmm, when I see a picture, I am sure I'll come up with ideas!
Sticking with the flower/plant theme you could go with Thorn or Basil or Sage ...
When I was little we had two kittens (at different times) named Trecker. Don't ask me where we got that idea :) We've also had Marble, and Husky, and Smoky, and Ashes and Tigger.
how about mukluk...instead of the typical mittens etc. The furry inuit snow boots hehehehe you can have the exotic name and your sister can have the typical cat name by calling him lucky...you know, for short. :p
Best of luck to your sis - and I'll have a go!
Mr. Mephistoflees (from "Cats")
Edward (like artist Edward Gorey who's drawings are black/white)
Gomez (like Gomez Addams)
Let us know what name you ultimately choose - after all - it's your cat :).
Nero? (the Italian word for "black")
"L" names - Lucas? Leo? Link?
I like Basil or Sage a lot! Welcome, two kitties! Bless you, IRescue for helping your sister! And best wishes to her as she participates in this program.
How about James, as in Lily and James Potter?
Alladin, Sinbad, Conan?
How about Joseph, Michael or is he is a toughie Scrappy.
My Angels would make Great Guardian Angels.:love::love::love:
The hard part of picking a name when you've had so many pets is that half of these suggestions are names of pets or people in the family already past and present. Maybe I can get my sister used to Pillsbury since I didn't think it was a terrible name that had to be changed. The other one was Reba at the humane society and I would have kept her name too.
