    and I wanna touch it!

    Okay, so because it's my goal in life to become the Crazy Cat Lady or something, I found myself adopting a little black puffball of fur on Sunday afternoon. I have two cats already so I'm well aware that I will never get laid again because now I have three cats and three cats is a lot of cats to have when you're a single woman. That said, my cats are generally better company than most of my ex boyfriends have ever been so I still think I might be ahead here.

    I was really hoping I could name him Neil Diamond Kitty Pants but upon looking at him (photos attached) and then getting more of a gander of her personality last night, I'm positive he's just not a Neil. Like my other male cat, he seems to be showing early signs of nancy-boy cattery and I think I might have another jazz-paw gay kitty in the family! Yay!! :biggrin1: (I'm such a sucker for jazz-paw.)

    I'm going over a few names and I'm having a hard time with them. I have a fave but I'm getting a lot of naysaying on my favourite.

    So I turn to you, Peanut Gallery. Help me pick a name for this wee little dude? Please?

    My kitty, Balthazar, showed up on Three Kings Day. He just appeared in my backyard and was the friendliest thing ever. Nothing wrong with giving love to someone who needs it.

    Ooooh, Balthazar looks like he just knows stuff. I bet he takes your car out joyriding at night.

    Snoozan, I'm becoming more and more partial to the Sue, sans Stanley.

    Such a cutie!! :)

    I have 2 cats and looks like I will have a third that I was fostering for the cat coalition. And that doesn't include the outside cats that show up at my house.....all wounded. It's the ragmuffins that know I am a sucker.

    Names....how about:

    Onyx
    Pitch
    Black Bart
    Midnight
    Darth Vader
    Midnight
    Othello
    Licorice

    How about 'Doctor Kenneth Noisewater'? Everybody's naming their cats 'Bongo' or 'Oscar' or 'Max' or whatever... I say give him an imposing sounding name.

    Cat names are difficult, especially when you have to shout them for their food, or if they get lost and your wandering the neighbourhood shouting "Fanny".... "Fa-anny" ( Sorry Dad, it seemed funny at the time)

    Worse still was when we took the cat to the Vet and the receptionist announced through the tannoy "Mr Edwards, please bring your Fanny to consulting room 2"... (Fanny in the UK is different to the US- (it's the frontness not the back-ness!)) My dad didn't know where to put himself.

    I always think Spud, is good for cats till something more apparent turns up, that said one of cats became known as "Mischapops"...so pay no attention to me!!!

    Go for "Black" words, Cole, Jet, Pitch...

    Have a li'l mint? HAHAHAHAHHAHA!!!!


    I do like human names for animals. And I like them to border a bit on the insane. Like, Neil. Or Ken. He's not a Neil or a Ken simply by looking at him though.

    I had a cat named Michael. This seemed to ruffle some people's fur. Not sure why.

    He just looked like a Michael!

    People have an odd way of needing a sharp line between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. I take great joy in trying to erase this line. My kitty has more personality than many people I know. Doesn't that make him a person? Fur notwithstanding.

    I had a friend in college who had a cat named Dave. I thought it was insane until I met him. I have never met a creature that embodied the name Dave for than this cat. Another friend of mine had a cat named Doug.

    I love human names for kitties. I think Michael is a lovely name for a kitty! It's also my dad's name though and I think he'd get a bit pissy with me. Plus, kitty isn't a Michael.

    GAH! How do people ever even name their kids?!

    Glad that you got the reference.

    For the benefit of those who may not have done so, I will explain that (1) creosote is a kind of tar (hence the application to the black cat), and (2) Mr. Creosote is an enormously fat man in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, who, after he has gorged himself extravagantly in a restaurant, is given, by the head waiter, a "waffer-theen meent" which causes him to explode. Great scene. But probably, after all, not a good name for a cat.
