      My daughter names a calico kitten Bulldozer. We had a main coon named Miette. From the French subtitled movie ‘city of lost children. I has a little female calico named Muezza. From and Egyptian story of where the kings son was sitting on his throne cat sleeping on his arm. Instead of waking his beloved cat, muezza. He cut his own arm off. So he didn’t wake her. Powerful names all of them. My last cat was 14 when he passed away his name was Garçon the destroyer. I swear he had more human friends then I did.

  21. Warriorcats4ever

    My aunt has a cat named Hellcat(all black dark blue eyes). Literally. Hellcat is kinda mean for the cat. The reason she is named that is because when she’s in the shadows her blue eyes are the only thing you see and also she DOES NOT LIKE PEOPLE AT ALL hardly even likes my aunt’s husband and she claws almost everyone. but not me for some reason I have a way with animals. One time a stray cat was at my house when I was 3 It came to my lap and slept when my dad came outside it hissed like crazy and charged at him. I was like WHAT!? Another time a 2 pitbull. and a German Shepard ran at my mom and sister when I was 6 I actually clapped and they let me pet them. I love Pitbulls they are the most misunderstood dogs. It depends on how you raise them if they were abused and neglected then they are aggressive to humans if you love them and treat them kindly they are one of the most friendly things!

  22. Warriorcats4ever

    So um Emily what color is your cat? If they take after her then they would take the colors of tortoiseshell cat colors, right? Like one be black one brown and some mixed?

  23. Emily

    Well, I have a year old puppy. He is a Golden Retriever and Great Pyrenees mix. And then I have a Dalmation he is fully grown he is 7 years old which would make him 49.

  24. Emily

    Yeah, heś fluffy and he is big bigger than my Dalmation already I am going to be dead when he tries to cuddle and he is full-grown ? The puppy is named Buddy and the Dalmation is Sheldon( like Plankton´s real name) the name suits him he tries to get revenge on the cat when she stole his food. XD Heś saying GIMME BAAAACCCKKK! he never catches her

  25. Emily

    Sheldon is a killer. One time a stranger walked up our driveway and Sheldon snapped off his wire leash and chased that guy down the street biting his legs and tripping him. Poor man. At least he is not dead. Oh gotta go time for breakfast its morning over here!

  26. Emily

    OH HI!! im always on here i dunno why but I am. I’m weird XD those r good i might name one if it turns out to look like the father but withought a white paw then i will name it Fireheart!!!! and a gray one Graystripe! and i know there will be one thats black sooo Ravenpaw!! And if the back is a girl then i will instead name them Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf.

  27. Emily

    Yes, yes i do. I also enjoy reading Seekers and Survivors. Both written by Erin Hunter and I’m going to start reading Wings of Fire by her to :3

  28. Warriorcats4ever

    I love Wings of Fire. I think you will love them because I sure do!!! Erin Hunter has sooooo many different names sometimes I think I’m reading her book at the library if it’s a good one. Its nice that u like to read. Ya got any books right now? Because of the…. well I dont wanna say it I dont wanna freak people out

  29. Emily

    Yes i have one its 420 pages I like to check how many :3 Its called Witches of Ash and Ruin and no its not bout green wrinkly cackling ladies with brooms. Its about witches that look like people and one girl is trying to find out who is killing some of the witches. I do not recommend it to people who are against cussing it has some in there. Not to much like crazy-saying-it-in-every-sentence-thing but if u r against it then ya know don’t read it. I don’t cuss but I’m not against it either. I mean let people be who they r and if they are bad people that bully or something tell them that their life will have consequences because of their decisions. People are mean sometimes and yes some are g a y DONT REPORT ME FOR SAYING THAT thereś literally a person with a cuss word in their username up there! As I said accept people for who they are, once u get to know them they are not bad like u think. Like some bullies bully because they have a tough life and others may because they were bullied in the past. So talk it out at first and if that dont work and they look like they gonna punch u then yell at them saying to stop. Dont say something to mean people! that will just make things worse!

  30. Warriorcats4ever

    Ok ur gonna make me cry, literally. Im…bi………… DONT REPORT ME OR ANYTHING LIKE LITERALLY PLEEEEAAAASSSEEEE DONT REPORT US! And u saying to accept people for who they r. Lots of people don’t wanna be my friend because of me bein u know. They think I’m to ‘weird’. But u belive in that, to accept people! U r the one person I met that said this in comments I have ever read.

  31. Emily

    Yes i do belive in that. and so I dont care what people think of me any longer. They used to bully me and everything i actually hit a boy for bullying me and my friend he was harsh even cussing we were in 3rd grade!!! So i hit him. But he kept bullying my friend I would see him and confront him by looking at him with a stern look. After that i started making bullies stop bullying people even if i did not know them. Soooooooo I believe in that. But that day I hit him it was only on his shoulder. He stopped after that. Bullying me i mean. And after 3 years i have seen him again he is still bullying I talked to him and he said he could if he wanted. So i let him bully me instead. He left other people alone more often. I walked in front of a teacher’s room one day when he was bullying me in the hall, following and saying things cannot say here. The teacher heard him and followed us she stopped him and they sent him to the office. He said he was saying no such things. I did not mean to get him in trouble so i got him out of it. I told them he was just joking with me. They asked with harsh things like THAT. And i said yes. I did lie but i got him out anyways. He said thanks in the lowest voice possible for him. I said welcome and walked off. Now we see each other in my Middle school of Gettys. I and him kinda get along even though it awkward because i got him out of trouble just before the… ummmmm sickness. So now he don’t bully. Be kind to others and they may just be kind to u.

  32. Warriorcats4ever

    Whoa. What a story. So like u and him r friends? That’s awesome!!! U sound like a good person someone That cares. I care about others but I never tried to actually HELP a bully. But hey it stopped him from doing it. HEY…. U KNOW WHAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTT???

  33. Susan Crane

    I like bingo, chessie, fleur, bestie, baby bae, twinkle, tinker, buttercup, and about 100 more. Sooooo hard to choose. My girl is sweet but also wild. Tiger stripes and black with a buff belly. What do you think?

  34. Rainy Waldrip

    Kitten rescued from almost being hit by a car after separated from mother cat. Looking for a good strong powerful name. She’s 3 weeks old and gray and white fur. Blue eyes and she’s blind in her right eye. What would be a good mystic strong powerful name?

  35. Kara

    I have 4 cats named Duchess, Salem, Finnaginn, and Felix. Sadly Felix passed away of stomach cancer a couple weeks ago.

  36. Mac

    A Siamese cross with something. Had gorgeous blue eyes, and some Siamese markings. He had a dark mask on his face. Named him SooLee, “Little raccoon” in Chinese for the dark rings around his eyes. A tabby that liked to have his leash clipped to the clothesline, so he could run after birds, was named “Goofus McDuff” after a doctor in a humorous book, known for his brilliant diagnosis skills, and bad treatment plans. Goofy would do all the stalking right, and then jump too early and scare the birds away. He never caught anything. I think the birds laughed at him. All of my cats thought their name was “Hey! Cut that out!” when I brought them home.

  37. Jo-Ann

    Several months ago, my DH brought home a skinny soaking-wet kitten he had rescued from a flood. I’ve never had a cat before & wasn’t too sure about keeping it. He asked me what I wanted to name it. I spied a bag of kitkat candies on his desk, so I said her name is KitKat. DTW, she has stolen my heart!

  38. Bob

    For months my wife had been considering getting a cat. One day she came home from work with a little fellow that had just been weened. He cried for a couple of days and then settled in like he owned the place. He loved to roughhouse like kittens sometimes do with each other. My wife had been reading a series of cartoon books about Calvin and Hobbes. The kittens appearance and nature seemed well suited to the name Hobbes and he is quick to respond to it. We’ve come to discover several vets are fans of the cartoon too. Oh, he decide that he is my cat, rather than my wifes’.

  39. Vi

    I didn’t see these names, but our family cat past and present names are Pancake for our large tabby, Frankie, Winston, Crowley, Tofu, Mister, and Phoenix. A new addition might be Jojo, Biscuit, or Oscar. Dallas, Griffin and Kingsley are great names too.

    All my cats thought their name was Hey! Cut That Out! until I decided on a name. My first cat was named Goofus McDuff after a character in a book who would do everything right until the last step, which he always screwed up. Goofy would stay outside with me, clipped to the clothes line, as I worked in the garden. When birds would land in the grass he would immediately stretch out and drop low, wiggle his butt, get poised to jump, and then growl loudly. The birds would fly away and Goofy would jump and land face first in the grass. He never caught anything.

    Met a cat that was a “resident” of a vet’s office. When i Asked what the cats name was they said, “K.C.” (Casey, of course, but…) they couldn’t come up with a name that the whole office could agree on, so Kitty Cat, got the name “K.C”– for KittY -CaT!
    All of my pets have been adopted rescue pets, and I, myself was adopted as a baby, and coincidentally, my Birth name (Last name) was , in fact, “Casey,” so of course, I always remembered that pet name and had, over the many years since then, had a cat and later a dog, each named K.C. And Kasey! ( A Rottador, male, so i went with the “K”.)
    ( Also had an All gray cat named Ashley! ASH-ley — gray like ashes? with green eyes who looked Just like the Grinch from the holiday classic, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!)
    Now have a striped-ish calico named Amber, the color of her beatiful, black-lined, bright eyes!
    Thanks for listening and for Sharing!!

    My first cats name is Ponce (Pounce) DeLeon. He’s got ptsd from his previous life, so he’s my big baby. I met a lady at a party and we were talking about cats haha and she said how certain cats come into your life who have been with you through multiple life cycles. Felt that. About a week later i randomly had the name Nora pop into my head. Thoufht it was strange cuz I’m done having kids rn and I have a friend named Nora so whatevs. Ran info a woman selling kittens and my daughter wanted one sooo bad. So, we got one. Brought her home, and she’s polydactyl, she has 24 toe beans. So, thinking of a name, looked it up and Ponce DeLeon’s wife’s name was Leonora. So we have Ponce and Nora, and I think they’re my lil life besties. My familiars <3

      I’m sorry to hear about your loss, Terry. I also work from home with an orange tabby—will try to appreciate these moments a little bit more after hearing about Dale. Take care.
