Mason, your kitty friend was beautiful. At least he was loved while he was alive. So many out there aren't.

I agree with them telling you their names. All 3 of mine did. I just kinda talked to them and stared into their sweet kitty faces and suddenly "the" name came to me.

I also have a thing against naming pets silly names. I personally would be mortified if I woke up one day named Frou-Frou Muffin Butt, so I pretty much try to afford them the same consideration.


My vote for a name?

Purrcival.... Percy.

I like Scooter. That's my favorite.

Mason, I read about Socrates on your blog a couple of months ago. I think I cried.

Well i'm so not a cat person...sorry everyone... But i think Scooter is a cute name and i really like Obie...Well really there is only 1 cat i could ever ever ever see myself "wanting" and (sorry don't know what kind/breed just looks) it was this short haired black, black, completely black cat with the biggest brightess emerald green eyes i'd ever seen...that's the only cat i'd ever want...

So cute! I named our 2 younger cats - CoCo looks black, but when he is in the sun his fur looks just like cocoa powder brown. Tiger has black stripes all over his white/gray/brown fur. My boyfriend, who hasn't a creative bone in his body, named our 2 older cats: Boy and Girl. Ugh! I call Boy "Buddy" though, however he loves attention so much he comes to whatever name he is called, it is so funny! We also had another black cat (who passed away at only 1 year old :0( ) who I named Cleo. When I was a kid, we had numerous cats. Some names were: Oreo, Buttons, Ebony, Tabby, Peaches, Kitty, Samantha, Blaze, Callie..... I like Scooter!

Aw Mason, I'm sorry about your little buddy Those beautiful eyes sure make him look like he was a very smart kitty

DH has indeed made the li'l sh!t and other type of suggestions because he thinks he's sooooooo funny :rollseyes: (have i mentioned I'm married to a 38 year old 8th grader?). Mostly we have been referring to him as "the little one/guy/kitty" and generally we usually refer to Binky as "Kitty" so doing that is confusing as dh says "which one?" when he hears me holler. The little one is being very bitey about the hands/ankles etc. and for some reason likes to perforate ME from head to toe while I'm sleeping DH said how cute it was that he seemed to like me more at feeding time because I could get him to bottle feed and dh couldn't (must be a female thing) but I wonder why I get to be the one to get chewed on? So, water bottle training has begun. Binky just sits there and looks like, "Been there done that newbie"

Thanks for all the suggestions and anecdotes, I'm reporting the "results" to dh as we go along.

Kitty name
I suggest Orion as a name for the kitty. I also liked Shamus from the above list. Cute kitty for sure
