@lauraw Nice! Naming cats really is so much fun—I agree. Thanks for sharing yours.
[Sticky] What are your cats' names?
My four month old kitten is a Russian Blue named Leonidas. It means son of a lion in Greek and is the name of an ancient king of Sparta. Though so far, he's more cuddly and adorable than a fearsome warrior!
Mallory, I'm so glad that I discovered your YouTube videos, they are so helpful and informative. Thanks for the great content — you're brilliant at what you do!
@rickyk Awww, I love it! Leonidas is gorgeous. Thank you for the compliments on the channel as well—I'm glad that you find them helpful. Really brightens my day to hear that. 🙂

My cat is called Lanza. A handsome mix tabby boy. He was a stray. He was found on the street by a rescue after a fight with other strays. He got hurt so they sent him to the shelter, and later adopted by me. The rescue people called him Lanza. This name followed him to shelter & I decided to keep it, in memory of all the kind volunteers who have helped this tabby cat.
One interesting thing about this name: Lanza doesn't pronounce in English. It pronounces in Italiano. I don't know why he's given an Italian name at the first place but I feel this is quite interesting. I'm Chinese & I live in the US where everyone speaks English. My friends are always wondering how come my cat is named in Italian everytime I introduce him.
Cleo, was cleopatra when we adopted her, I like shorter names, she’s a tiger striped.
Charlie , he’s a tuxedo, named after Charlie Chaplain!
@lanza It's really cool that your cat has an Italian name pronunciation. Thank you so much for stopping by!
@kymcollar They're both beautiful. 🙂
I named my cat Monner! Its really based on my niece and on how she used to pronounce the word 'monster'.
My grandson and I caught three stray kittens this summer, all females. He named the black and white kitten, Panda. I named the grey and white, Colbie, after singer Colbie Caillat. My cousin adopted the all black kitten and named her Ebony.
My boy is called Mookie, honestly no rhyme or reason. Made it up and it suits him so well!
Barney - Tom cat from Tulsa. 4-5 years old. Barney's name was given to him by the lady who rescued him. I gave Barney his first home 2 1/2 years ago. Day three I was already letting Barney out. Best of both worlds, outdoor and indoor, Barney's choice.
Sunshine - Barney brought home a 5-6 week old calico kitten two years ago. Sunshine got her name because she is bright and happy as the sun's rays on a cold cloudy winter morning.
Trippy - 3-4 years old orange cat. Got his name because I am always about to trip with him being at my feet all the time. Nearly two months ago Trippy invited himself into my home and became part of our family.
Just came in from a morning walk around the block with Sunshine and Trippy. Barney caught up to us next street over.
Neighbors are amazed I have trained three strays. Actually the cats have trained me. Find what they like, and keep a daily routine. Cats like routines.
My kittens are siblings, going on 10-months old.
Nutty Buddy is a grey domestic long hair with very subtle stripes.
Little Debbie is a beige or tan long hair, also with very subtle stripes. She's also the runt of the litter and much smaller than Nutty.
I'm here because Little Debbie is a super picky eater, and I can't always find her favorite canned foods when I go to the store. Love all the info here.
@trystongilbert I feed my kittens a mix of different brands and flavors, so they don't get picky. I also add raw ground beef or boiled chicken to the mix. Once a week, they get a soft cooked egg yolk mixed in.
