Thread: Introducing Thomas (will you help me re-name him?)

  1. #1

    Introducing Thomas (will you help me re-name him?)

    Well, tomorrow is the BIG DAY!!! Thanks to all the PT support and prayers, I will be bringing Thomas home tomorrow.

    I just got back to the office after dropping by the shelter for a snuggle, and this time I remembered to take my camera....


    SO...............................


    Heeeeeeeeeres Thomas!!!!



    This is basically as much tail as he's got - it's around 2 inches long!



    In this pic the cat in the next cage was hissing and growling, and Thomas just looked at her and walked away! Surely a good sign if he wants to get into Madam Ally's good books!!






    Now for the next question........what to call him??? The shelter called him Thomas because he is the same colour as Tom from "Tom and Jerry", But "Thomas" seems a bit "formal" for such a relaxed and friendly boy! I have a couple of other names in mind, and I'd like your opinion:

    (These are all of Celtic/Gaelic origin, and I have listed the name, then the meaning)

    Kenny = Handsome

    Brody = Brother

    Clyde = Warm

    Connor = Much Wanted

    Dermot = Free Man

    Garvey = Peace


    I like all of the above, and his personality so far seems to be very docile, relaxed and loving, so all these names suit him! He just wants to snuggle the whole time!

    Thanks guys - and don't worry - I'll keep the camera handy this weekend.

    Thanks Kay for my great sig & avatar!!!

    That is such great news!!!!! Congratulations! He is soooo adorable!!
    ..... guess you can tell I am happy for you, huh?!

    New name? I agree with Jen, I like Thomas, but of the ones you have picked out I like Brody best.

    Looking forward to hearing all about how he settles in and what Ally thinks of her new brother, and of course all the pics!!

    Aaaawww Julie, now I know I have been away for far too much time...I've almost missed your new family member!!!

    He looks so regal and handsome and I have to agree that Connor would be the perfect name for him (because he is so much wanted!!!), though I like the name Thomas, too!!!

    I am already so curious how Ally will react to her new brother and I am looking forward to loads of pictures and stories to come!!!

    What happy news

    And although 12 cats are more work than 6 and 6 more than 4:
    2 won't be more than 1

    I also like the name of Connor

    Congratulations!!!

    I like the name Brody. Not for the fact that it means brother but just looking at his face in one of the pictures screams at me "BRODY".

    I read your post a few days ago about tyring to convience your husband about Thomas...I guess it worked.

    A great big PT welcome to Thomas (for now)!!!!

    I can not wait to see more picutres of that adorable fellow.

    SO pleased he's coming home with you!! I really have to agree that Thomas suits him - but from your list I think Brody suits his lovely face.
