What is your cat called?

Just being nosy really and looking for inspiration

Does the name you've chosen suit him/her because of looks/personality or is it so inappropriate as to be ironic?

Also, does anyone give their pedigree cat a ridiculous moniker (a la Crufts), then a 'normal' nickname or is that just for dogs?

We have a tabby called Toffee. When he arrived in my garden and made it into the house (and would not leave), I thought he was a she and called him 'Princess'.

Want to call him Mungo but too late now.

My mother used to call them as she saw them. So, we had a Ginger, Snowy, Blackie, Tabby, Smokey, Fluffy and Bunny (Manx). Not all at the same time.

Onion, who sadly died in January.

We are getting another cat in Sept/ oct, the name is already hotly debated!

So this thread is fab.

I have two.
Big Kitten is called Eponine Spa, she's a year old
Little kitten is just ten weeks, she's called Jemima Silverstone.
They're also known as silky and fuzzy, and bloody annoying and really bloody annoying!
I want more cats grin

Mine are Robson (he was given to me at four years old with that name by someone who couldnt cope with him, apparently he had a brother called Jerome!), Harry and Theo (both girls, bit of confusion over gender when they were tiny!!). We also have a Finn, Freddie and Hugo in the family

Chloe - sweet little black moggy, sadly didn't survive the anaesthetic when being spayed sad
After that we got two kittens, on the advice of a cat loving friend. We named the tabby Candy - known affectionately as Candycat. She was small but feisty.
The other was grey with white paws, white 'bib' and a black nose which reminded us of a teddy bear, so we named her Teddy. Her nn was Teddybaws. She was sweet and gorgeous and a bit clumsy. She made a little chirruping noise when you stroked her or as a greeting.
Last cat we had was a small brown Burmese who was a rescue cat already named Hobbes.
