What was your cat's name? - Page 2

post #31 of 50
We named them all ourselves except for Ivory and Cassi.

Cassi was Cassiopeia, Ivory was Ivory, she's still Ivory on paper, but we just call her The Bug.

Mooch and Noodles were Black & Grey respectively, at the shelter. Bunny was Bunny and Pumpkin was Pumpkin. Olivia was my Aunt's cat, so we kept her name -- which is Olivia Elizabeth officially

Glory was from a cosin's cat's litter and I picked her out when she was just a few days old, so I named her first! Tinsel I have no idea! And Tiger was my step-dad's cat when he and my Mom met and got married.

I don't know what Chynna's name was when she came to live with me. Her owners abandoned her when they moved.

Abby was always Abby. The girl I got her from told me that she had named her "Abby", short for "Abigail" because of her red hair. I liked the name and didn't think it fair to the kitten who had known that name for 4 months, to change it. So she has always been Abby.

Carly kept the name the rescue gave her. I couldn't come up with anything better.

Lucy was Paloma (as in Picasso).

I only have a few that had shelter/foster home names:

Azrael was originally Pumpkin
PeeWee was originally Socks
Sammy was originally Nera (which I thought was a girls name. They could have at least gone with NerO )
And Buddha, although not a cat, was originally Alex - which we considered keeping because it does fit him... but we wanted something that went well with Karma

Jack, John Doe, and Tryon adopted us off the street so they didn't have names that we knew of.

Karma came from a shelter, but she didn't have a name... only a number.

Milo's was a SPCA kitten...his name was Sid
Georgie was a rescue from our horrible neighbors..she was Penny
Lucky was 6 weeks old so we got to same her first...same with Jake 10 weeks when we got him.
Pickles came with his name, he is 6 years old and we just got him a month ago. I wouldn't have named him that...kept it b/c it's his name.

I've never renamed any of mine either. I did change one of my sisters cats names though from Casper to Boris. After 6 years of being called the 'wrong' name he seems to like it

Both of my kitties kept their names. However, I want to name a cat Loki, so when I saw his picture and his name I knew he was the one.

Possum I had for three weeks on a trial adoption, and I didn't want to start calling him something different in case it didn't work out with him living with me and Loki. Then, when I decided that he staying, I felt that I couldn't just start calling him something different. Everybody else seems to like his name. It's okay, but it's definitely not something I would have picked out. Besides, Possum really, really knows his name well, and now that I think about it, I don't think he would have took to another name.

My dog, Lady came with her name, and we decided to keep it since my sister and I couldn't think of anything better that would fit her (we were 8).

Actually, the only animal in out family that we've changed the name of is my sister's dog, Jinx. Jinxie's original name was Socks (or Sox), and my sister felt (as do we all) that Socks is a cat's name, not a dog's name! Jinx really fits her better, too.

Mine was Oreo at the shelter (a tuxedo cat) but I hated it. I am HORRIBLE at naming animals, so I just started calling him kitty. Everytime my mom would come over she would ask me if I named him yet, and I would always say "no" so she started calling him "John Doe" so his name is now Johnny

Dusty (adopted from the shelter when she was bout 6 months old) was named "Greta".

Call it stubbornness but I didn't want her keeping a name someone gave her, who gave her UP to the freaking shelter. She is the sweetest thing after all these years, still!!! So I renamed her 'Dusty' cuz she looks like a dustmop.

Hammie (adopted from HS as a kitten) was fostered by a great lady. She had named him "Simba". I was going to keep the name, but, he acted a lot like a cartoon character my daughter likes called Hamtaro. So we nicknamed him Hammie, like the character.

The others, I got to name first hand!

That is really cute!

(I know several cats named Oreo here. One isn't even a tuxedo. It was deffinately not an option for Mooch's name. Nothing against the name, just too common here!)

I haven't a clue about Zissou's life much before she came home with me, but if she had a name it was in cat-speak. I think the people who took her in for less than a day called her 'Tiger' or 'Stripes' or something, but she was so sick I doubt she responded to anything.

Yeah, I didn't really want my cat named after a cookie! LOL (I'm a big girl and I can just hear them now "Look at the fat girl that named her cat after cookies!!" LOL J/K)

Being that he was 1 1/2 years old when I got him, Spot has kept his name. However, the black spot on his head when I got him disappeared months after-- so now he's solid white, but named Spot. People think I am kidding them when they ask what his name is.
I adopted a dog that was german shephard/rottweiler mix and his name was "Bob"; being only 8 weeks old or so, I renamed him "Apache".

Duke was a kitten in the shelter and was named Tigger
Sibohan was being called Jade (because of her green eyes I'm sure)

Prior to Charlie and Jasmine we actually got our cats from the pet shop, but we probably hadn't done that even 14 years or more ago as our cats lived a long time. So they had no names as they were kittens. But Jazzy was from a little at the shelter so she had no name, and we don't know what name Charlie was given by the irresponsible f****** people who had him at a young age, we adopted him at 16 weeks from the shelter, he had no name either. Cleo didn't have one as she was a feral.

Amazing! lol
