Getting a kitten soon. DH doesn't care for cats or their names, four stupid suggestions from DC's. AIBU to think that Play-Doh, Meatballs, Tootsie and Muppet are all truly dire names for a cat that I will have to call -loudly - (not them).

AIBU? If I'm not can cat owners give me some genuine non-twatty suggestions for the new kitten?

My little black kitten is called Roisin Dubh.

How do you pronounce that name Materdolores? It looks like a lovely name. My cats are called Alice and Dave.

We need kitty pictures before we can say.

Two of our cats' names are related to where we went on honeymoon (they were born while we were away), and the latest kitten was named by DD1 after a well known cat in children's fiction, books that she adores.

I think it's nice to make it unique to your family if you can.

We have always given them proper names.
Latest is Mavis.

Our cars have always had people names; Barney, Sebastian and Zachary (brothers); Eddie, Kizzy and Meg. Meg already had her nane when we got her from the Blue Cross. I wanted to call her Beryl.

Need pics....

Yabu to only get 1.
And for asking for a name without a pic.
Muppet is a good cat name!!
Riggs if he is handsome like Mel Gibson!!
The Rock if he looks fit!!

Brian. I think it's an excellent name for a cat.

JellyMouldJnr Mon 22-May-17 14:08:10

Play doh is not great, but I like meatballs, tootsie and muppet!
How about Elmer?

SashaSashays Mon 22-May-17 14:08:37

We've had:

Or a muppet name: Grover, Bert, Ernie, Elmo,oscar.

Mine are called Tallulah and Alabama. I've also had cats called Rory, Clarence, Suki, Candy, Lacey... and others. smile

Dave is a fab cat name. I have had cats named 'proper' names, named for Norse gods, and currently on Irish names.

Enjoy your new kitten.

Meatballs is a great name! So is Muppet - and kinda useful when you want to scream "You fucking muppet!" at them for knocking everything off the side again.

we've had artist themed names (we're that twattish grin )
