My DH wants to call it endangered shock
but he loves her really.
She's mostly blackish with a couple of ginger legs and a few slashes of white. She's very cute and quite a monkey.
We rescued her from a hedge in the middle of nowhere so am still getting used to the idea of having a cat, haven't a clue what to call her!
Help please.
Two syllables is better than one i think. Means I can yell it loudly at night to get the bugger in wink

I had a lovely tortoise shell cat years ago called Paddy, I don't really know why I picked that name but it just suited her.

Marmaduke (maybe a bit Boy'ish)

Tiffany, eek only joking

I love random names for pets like, Dave, Phil, etc so I guess the female equivolent (sp?) Margery, Penelope, Lucinda, Sharon. smile

We had a gorgeous long haired tortoiseshell cat when I lived in South Africa, and she was called Charlie (after the perfume dontcha know). I think its a lovley name for a cat smile

Our lovely tortie was called Mitzi. She lasted until she was 21 (we got her when I was 4)!
