I tried to vote more than once because I named one of my cats after a tv show character and others due to their coloring or personlities but couldn't.
Originally the first cat I got on my own I named Ghost because she hid and refused to come out for the first 2 weeks but I felt that was kinda a negative name and I noted she has unique markings/pattern that looks like a zebra so I decided to call her Zebra and it fit!
When I got the boys (black brothers), it was TOUGH to name them at first because they were only 3 weeks old when I rescued them so I had to wait a while for them to grow and be able to tell them apart since they look so much alike. I finally noted that one likes to chew on things so I decided to call him Spike after my favorite character (vampire) on the tv show "Buffy the Vampire slayer". The other brother I decided to name Buddy because he favors being with me and loves to be on my shoulders as I'd walk around..
Fourth cat- I had rescued a pregnant mother cat from a blizzard and before I could get her to a foster home, she gave birth to 5 kittens in my bedroom and one kitten was black and white and reminded me of salt and pepper since she's full of spirit and very feisty so I decided to call her Pepper. I noted Zebra favored her over the other kittens so I kept her while I found good homes for the other kittens and the mom cat.
Fifth and LAST cat (HOPEFULLY!
) A friend found him wandering near a very busy road near my work and brought him to me to save. I named him Tango due to his unique coloring (beautiful orange/white mixture and the color reminds me so much of tangos!
) I haven't added his picture to my signature yet since he is a recent OFFICIAL addition to my family.
