Possibly tempting fate here, but have been hand rearing remaining kitten from litter of 8....he's a lovely ginger with quite strong stripes and we are trying to find a name for him. He's a week old now and quite strong, so hopefully he'll be ok. We can't do Orlando (as in marmalade cat) as used that before and don't want Tigger/Tiger.

Possibles so far are Mango, Jaffa, Twiglet, Mustard - but does anyone have any better ones.

I have a beautiful ginger cat called Nigel.

How's the hand rearing? tired?

Rory - anglicised version of Ruari which is redheaded man in Gaelic.

Have a friend called Nigel who might not take kindly to a cat being given the same name! Yes, we're whacked out, we did have two until Sun night, but lost a tortie which was v.sad. Had spent Fri/Sat/Sun feeding hourly which completely wiped us out, but the boy is going a little longer between meals, almost 4 hours, so it's a bit better.

Thanks for ideas - in a few days I think we'll put them all in a bag and draw one out.

we used to have a cat called Purrgeot GT (as in ginger tom)
a clever name we thought but it was a bit embarrassing shouting it down the garden!

We named our ginger and white kitten Barley, 'cos he's the colour of barley sugar! smile

Claire2301 Tue 29-Sep-09 16:57:28

Our ginger cat was named Benjy!

bumpybecky Tue 29-Sep-09 17:00:28

our ginger was called Salsa

I wish we'd called him Gengis though - he was the scarediest cat ever! would have been a good macth for Einstien, our very dim black and white moggie

I have a ginger cat...he is called Socks..because it looks like he has long white socks on his paws/legs.... that simple. smile
