We adopted her from the Humane Society after our 14 year old dog died....Please help me name her. At first I thought she would not bother with the needles and yarn but she loves them both. :heart:

Maybe she is. OTOH, she looks a lot like a long-haired version of our very smart and pretty Patches, aka Rita. You picked...no, you GOT picked by a good one, did't you?

Since she likes your knitting, how about Stitches?

Yarden you said she likes the knits and I think she looks like a garden cat. The kind that sit right in the middle of your flowers looking as content as can be. Yeah she looks like a Yarden

Wow, she looks just like a cat I adopted from the back yard woods! I named her Shade, or Shady Cat. Shady Cat fit her well, because she was always 'stealing' food from the compost pile. She was a Shady character, haha. She was the sweetest lap kitty that LOVED becoming a house pet.

Our new kitty was at the Humane society short of 7 months. Due to being in a cage so much she gained a lot of weight. With the new freedom she has already lost a pound. she is such a delight and loves her new found freedom.

I tend to name my pets after gods and other mythological characters. I would suggest Bast.

Oh my goodness, what a cutie! :heart: The first name that popped into my head was Thomas, but then I re-read and saw she's in fact a girl and the first girl name that popped into my head was Roseanne...lol...Yes, like Roseanne Barr...LOL! She looks like a kitty who won't take no crap! :teehee:

I like the suggestion made of Stitches!

And I like to use human names for pets!
GlobalTraveler's given name is Zina!
I think Zina would suit your pretty little cat very well, too!

We do the same around our home... based on personality or unique features. Pandora is named because she is such a troublemaker; even for a cat. Selune (pronounced Sah Loon Ay) is named after a moon goddess, because her face markings looked like a crescent moon.

For your kitty, not knowing personality, would name her after the "dark goddess" Hecate or the "night goddess" Nyx. I have to admit, I love the name Stitches, too!

My first thought was to call her something knitting related - "Needles and Yarn" was my first choice, but I love Stitches and Purl, too.

How about Needles, since she likes yours (and has a set of her own ;) )

She looks just like a beautiful black cat I saw in a movie once, named Piewacket. Think she looks like a Piewacket?? Try it and see how she reacts.

I love "Purl". Another suggestion would be "Smokie".

Knitty Kitty is the one I have chosen. She loves to play with the end of the needles and yarn etc.
