View Full Version : pet names
03-18-2005, 08:16 AM
I was just thinking about some cute names some animals have. What did you name your pets, and is there a story behind the names?
Our first dog was a poodle and we called her Molly........I just always had that name in my head......
Our second dog is Howie (the bichon in my picture) he is my bouncing ball of fluff........again, I had the name first after hearing Howie Mandel on the radio and driving by a Hungry Howies at the same time. About two weeks later, the angels brought me to him at the shelter.
Then, allergic as I am, my daughter brought her cat home because (surprise, surprise) she couldn't keep her in the dorm/apartment anymore. Rebekah's boyfriend is Korean and actually his mom named the kitten "Nabia" which means butterfly in Korean. :-)
Last, is our kitten. Jill said in another post that pets find us......and I believe that. Only six days after we had to put our Molly to sleep, this 4 week old kitten adopted me. I mean I picked him up and he wouldn't let go.
We wanted a Spanish/Mexican name (a joke because my son barely got by in Spanish and still took another year) and we batted names around for 24 hours.....Chico, Juan........until in the middle of the night it came to me......Diego.....(for Juan Diego, a Mexican peasant saint)...
I got up.........wrote "His name is Diego" on a paper and taped it to the kids' mirror in their bathroom.
Nicknames? Eggo.......lol.......They sing "Leggo my Eggo, Diego Eggo" to a mexican tune LOL........
He only comes when we shake kitty cookies in the little containers and sing the song......
(Oh, and my girlfriend's kitten is named Biscuit, isn't that cute?)
I named my goldfish "Lucky" because he was the only one out of the four I brought home to live more than 2 days. I could've named him "Hannibal" (because he ate the other 3) but decided my guests didn't really want to hear the story...

Oh boy...here we go:
My first and only dog was named Jingles because at 4 yrs old I liked the way her collar "jingled". I lost her when I was a Junior in Highschool, and still can't bring myself to get another dog, not home enough now to be a good doggy mommy...
My first cat, Bandit started out as Shadow, then to Smokey, and some how my mom started called him Frito Bandito and Bandit stuck....
My second ever cat, Cutty Sark, because my dad liked the brand of scotch whiskey and it seemed like a cute name.
Then there was Beastie and Trixie two kitties my first fiance and I had, (which he got custody of in the breakup, lol) Beastie cause he liked the Beastie Boys (the fiance, not the cat, lol) and Trixie after my CB handle, lol.
Then Missy and Cali (my step cats originally, as they were my ex-husbands, but I kept :) ) Not sure how the names got given. Cali was obvious, lol, she was a calico.
Now that brings me up to Scooter, she was named that because she was only a 1/2 of a pound when she found me, and she "scooted" everywhere, fast for a little tiny kitten!
Then Fred...my big tom cat came along -- who was such a cute kitten, and it was the ex's turn to name a pet, and I had a choice between Fred or Bob, I chose Fred, lol.
So, far that's it....wonder when the next one will wander in.....

We had a dal*****n named Ajax --- we had arranged to buy a puppy and I dreamed we named him Ajax --- hubby liked the name so that's how we registered him. My daughter named the puppies in one of our litters so we could identify them when they were reserved. There was Mati Hara, who had a spot in the middle of her forehead, Bo (for Bozo), who had a round spot around his nose, we had two puppies with one blue eye and one brown --- they became "Port" and "Starboard" --- the new owners kept those names. The biggest was named Moose and the smallest was Bitsy.
We had one dal*****n named Magnolia (white flower) Maculata (spotted) -- named from a plant dictionary. We called her Maggie.
Oh, yes, our daughter has a springer named Milo Minute.

I've only had one dog, a boston terrier named Kasey Bailey.....she was a riot! :)
We now have two cats, Smokie (named after the Smokey Mtns that surround us) and wiggles (who is psycho) and then she is called 'Wigs" (since she 'wigs out' over the least little thing.) :)
If we ever get a dog again, I want another small one and will name her Clancey......why?.......I really don't know.......but I came up with it years ago.
I like the name Diego for your cat! ;)

I have a dog named Ginger and a cat named KoKo. The person that owned Ginger became allergic and was giving her away. I brought her home to give to my step daugther so she could find her a home. Once I brought her home she stayed. She was one then and she will 9 this year. I had a toy poodle named Brandi and had to have her put to sleep when she was only 8 because of severe kidney problems and I was not going to get another dog but I'm sure glad I have Ginger.

How fun! I hope this thread keeps going for while LOL (Donna I love Ajax!)

We had quite a few odd names for our dogs. We had Muttsey, He was our first dog that we got when we were camping. His name from the lady who was giving him away was Johnathan Mutt so we improvised and called him Muttsey Hoover since he ate any crumbs on the ground. Next, we had Princess who came with her name. Then we had an American Eskimo that I fell in love with at school in California. We called her Beaches since I got her near the beach at a shelter. She just passed away too and now we got 2 more Eskimoes, we call one Murphy and the other Maui. They are 2 boy dogs and Murphy was the name of every stuffed animal or dog toy we gave our dogs to chew up so we named him after all the toys and Maui, beacause we love vacationing there...
Julie, this is a great post starter...I love reading the responses.. :bunny:

My Boston Terrier is named Otto, because:
1) I was watching the movie, A Fish Called Wanda, and the Kevin Kine character gave me the idea.
2) Otto the Great was the name of a Holy Roman Emperor, and I felt my puppy had grandiose aspirations.
3) Otto is a nickname for Othello -- so that name has a Shakespearean connection.
4) Otto is a homonym for the Italian word for "eight", and my dog's birthday (3/5) adds up to eight.
Strangely enough, I named my kitten "Dinah," after Alice in Wonderland's cat, then later my aunt informed me that my father (deceased) had named his childhood cat Dinah and the two were inseparable.

What a fun thread, we have 2 Golden Retrievers, Montana and Maggie. A brittany spaniel named Roxy (she was a rescue) and are awaiting the birth of our newest baby Brittany in April and she comes home in June, we have decided to name her Elsie.

I have a Basset Hound officially named Henry VIII of Clarewood, but we just call him Henry. My husband and I had picked him out prior to a vaction in England. The whole time we kept trying to come up with a dog name. On the long flight home, and after a few drinks, we were singing "I'm Henry the 8th I am....." At that point, we decided to name him Henry!
03-18-2005, 05:52 PM
We have 2 pets... one is a long haired Chihuahua my husband had before we met. His name is Henry. My husband is a physics teacher, and apparently a "henry" is a unit of inductance or some other electrical thing -- it turns out, he wanted to name the dog "Torque" because he does this wild spinning move when he's really excited, but his girlfriend at the time told him Torque was a stupid name for a dog.... so Henry it was. However, lately my husband has been calling him Dumpy a lot because well, he has to go outside and take a lot of dumps lately. The vet has him on high fiber food :biglaugh:
We also have my baby, a purebred, huge 20 lb male Maine Coon cat named Paddington. His full, registered name is Calicoon Paddington Asbjorn -- Calicoon is the cattery he came from, Paddington is because he's a big, sweet bear of a cat (and 'cause when he was a kitten he'd walk and you'd hear "pad-pad-pad" down the hall because he had, and still has, huge paws meant to act as snowshoes in the Maine winter). Asbjorn is a continuation of that theme-- it's Norwegian for "divine bear." He gets called Pad, Padster, the 'Ster, Baby, Babykins, Mama's Sweet Kitten, and whatever other dumb names I think up, but he ALWAYS knows whatever I said referred to him, I guess by the tone of my voice :lmao: LOL

My first cat was named Ifit. I was very young and couldn't tell "if it" was a girl or "if it" was a boy so I just called it "Ifit". Turns out Ifit was a girl and had oodles of kittens that I used to walk endlessly up and down the sidewalk in my doll stroller.
When I saw my cats when they were kittens, they were 2 strays by my moms, the one was white w/ blue eyes and the other was a long hair and all different colors. Anyway the white one caught my eye I said she looked like an Angel. And the other I named Tasha,Weeks later we found out are Angel was a little boy. Kept the name. but sometimes he acts like a little devil :) Growing up I had 3 dogs a poodle-suzette, 2 mixed breeds who I adored, One was Pepsi and the other was Bono, we were big U2 fans me and my sister. I still miss those doggies very much, they were the best-jojo

What a fun thread!
My first dog was a great dane/lab cross who was huge. I lived in the south then, so "Bubba" fit him well. Big, dumb and extremely good natured.
Our next pet was a little mustang colt I bought at an auction because the only bidder was the meat guy. We named him "Little Guy",..not much size but he made up with it in attitude.
Then "Rocky" came to live with us, named after Stallone. He was a gray arab, only 14.5 hands, but could hold his own against the bigger horses when the bickering started.
"Speedy" was my son's choice. A tiny shetland, who somehow managed to stay up with the pace of the rest.
"Dancer" was my Hubby's Arab. He had some moves in him one rarely sees, yet smooth as silk.
By now Bubba was old and not getting around much, so we got a lab puppy and named him "Buddy". He was a wonderful buddy and brought Bubba's spark back.
Buddy adjusted to Bubba's death and never cared much for other dogs. This liver & white border collie looking dog showed up on our road and after seeing her every day for a week in different areas I finally stopped to pick her up. No ID. So I brought her home and Bud liked her. All efforts to find her owner were fruitless so she's been here ever since. We named her "Whiskey" 'cause she's a licker.
Buddy got old, died and was buried next to Bubba along the creek. Whiskey took his passing hard.
Recently we took in a little corgi/australian shephard mix who's name is Annie. I call her "Rat dog" because she goes places in my house that dogs have never before ventured. And now, as if to prove her name fitting, with the warmer weather she goes out in the field and catches all sorts of rodents.

I am loving this thread and the stories...have a long list of pets and some unusual stories, but need to think on the memories for a bit....at the present time I am the step mother to Charlie, my daughter's maltese (I am secretly in love with him) and he has a plethora of names. Hoover, chuckles, sniffy, licky bug, lil boyfriend, stinky,mama's boy,fluffy puppy and a few others....last night it was the "pukester" as he didnt survive his 3 hr crating very well and we ended up in bathland and wash the floor land at 10PM.....ack! The real Mom was out for the night, how nice....after being up with him from 3:30 on (I think he faked the dry heaves) I am very tired and just gave up my Eagles ticket (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) to stay home with him and stay ahead of the little puker....too tired as well and its a pain med kind of night. will get back to the others if the thread keeps going....My favorite so far has to be Bubba! Charlie was 2 lbs when he flew in from St Louis, so I really had pushed for a LARGE name, but I didn't win...:)

What a fun thread!
Growing up I had no fur or feather-bearing pets as my father was extremely allergic to them. When I was expecting our daughter, we got our one and only dog, a Cairn Terrier (like Toto in the Wizard of Oz). He was large for his breed and quite a character. The children of the breeders of our dog told us they had called him Teddy. The name didn't seem to fit too well and we had trouble finding one that did. He was such a wiry fuzzball as a pup that we ended up calling him Scruffy. His official name was Scrufadopolus Theodorus.
We would not allow him to beg for food while we were eating but, should anyone drop food items in our home, Scruffy was lightening fast and would catch the food before it hit the floor. My husband said we should have named him Hoover as he was the best vacuum we ever had!
He was a treasured member of our family and was with us for 15 years.

Well my list of fur babies is extensive so bare with me :)
The Sammycat aka Mr. Attitude was given his name because he got his foot hung in the sofa one day after he came to live with me and well it reminded me of the childhood story "Little Black Sambo". Now I didn't want to offened anyone who may have heard that name in casual conversation so I changed it to The Sammycat.
Oscar, dear sweet Oscar, nothing special about his name he just looked like an Oscar when I got him. He is my cuddlebug and always wants to be held.
Ceasar,also known as Boo, his breed is a Minature Pinscher and they are known as the "King of toys" hence the name of Ceasar.
Nakita, my beautiful Nakita, just seemed like a fitting name for her as she was an abused dog before I got her. I had to sit on the ground for months and talk to her just to gain her trust enough to pet her without the pure terror coming in her eyes.
Dakota, he got his name after I adopted him to be a friend for Nakita. Dakota looks a lot like my Alaskan Malamute Nemo who passed away. Dakota is a big ole sweet loveable goofball. No special reason for his name just liked the name.
Tala, was an abused dog who had a choke chain embedded in her neck that required surgery to remove it. She weighed 26 lbs when she came into my life, she should have weighed 50-60 lbs for her age of 8 months. Her name is a Native American word meaning "Wolf". Tala is a true survivor like her wild cousins so the name was fitting for her.
Well that is my list of furbabies- there have been many many others from my childhood but I want list them all.
03-20-2005, 05:22 PM
When I was little we had a cat named Mouber (sounds like meow-ber) not sure how he got his name but he loved to meow and bash his head against our screen door when he wanted into the house and we also had a black lab named Astro (aka Astro-mut) who ran away and also a golden lab named Hunter who due to a complaining neighbour we had to give him away . As for my cats I had Cuddles and Smokey. Cuddles passed away almost 2 years ago but she got her name because the first time I ever held her she only fit in the palm of my hand but she got comfortable and loved to be snuggled and cuddled lol. You could literally turn her upside down and hold her like a baby and she loved it. Plus she loved to fall asleep with a warm blanket on her and someone near by :) Smokey on the other hand got her name because she's a smokey grey and white.
03-20-2005, 05:47 PM
When our children were growing up, if they got a new pet, they went to the front page of the daily newspaper and selected a name from there --- hence a black cat named Howard (Hughes), a white one named Jackie (Kennedy), and a dal*****n named Sonny (Liston).
I am loving this thread! Thanks to Julie for starting it.

I had many animals in my life, but my best pal, was my Cocker that passed this past Jan. His name was Romeo. When I went to look at a cpl. Cockers, the first one came up, bumped his nose on my leg (was sitting on the floor) then turned around and bumped his head on the table and fell over, NOT my kinda dog, hyper spazz lol. Then came Romeo, walked up to me, smelled my knee, made a half turn and laid down, somewhat on me, that was my dog, he slept on my lap on the way home, figured I would either name him Romeo, cause he was a little love, or berber, as in berber rug, cause he liked to lay down and the fur looked like a rug. Romeo was the best name, this dog, when he was a puppy, would holler if I was in the shower, he would climb his little self in there cause he didnt want to be w/o me lol. Even before he passed (he was 14 1/2 with epilepsy and a heart murmur, his vet called him "the miracle dog") he would howl for a long time when I would leave, my neighbor used to chuckle about it and let me know. If I wasn't in his site, he would go looking for me, then howl if he couldnt find me. I couldnt go out to my front yard w/o him howling lol. Gotta thank ya for starting this thread, I wanted to share some things about my dog anyways. :)
03-21-2005, 08:48 AM
I really do hope this thread keeps going, as I love reading everyones pet stories! They all give me the warm fuzzies!!! And makes me glad to know I am not the only who's animals had MULTIPLE nicknames, lmao!!!! It's amazing I didn't have pets with identity crisises!!!!!
03-21-2005, 09:02 AM
We lost our Rottweiler 3 years ago and his name was Bolton. We named him after Bolton Mountain (ski resort) which, proved to be a challenging (the mountain) & Bolton was challenging! I couldn't tell you how many people asked if we named him after the singer Michael Bolton...neither my husband or myself like country music!! Bolton was also very stubborn, but he was a genle giant. All the childern in the neighborhood LOVED him. He would kiss ya when you walked in the house...that was after he went and got a ball for you to throw for him! He was so well trained, we could use hand signals and he would obey. Oh I miss him...

I have quite a few pets. a toy poodle, which is brown, called Buttons. She is named this because there is a chocolate in the UK called this. We sometimes call her butty box as her nick name. A have a black toy poodle called Lucy, not sure why I called that, I just thought it suited her. her nick name is Loo loo, I then have a red standard poodle called Ruby. You can guess why she is called that. Her nick name is called you you.
I have 2 cats called Ben and Jerry, and yes they are named after the ice cream.
I have 2 miniature horses , one called Sally, because her proper name is Mustang Sally of Mallards and the other it called Lizzie even though her proper name is called Looking Glass Baby Lourdes.
I love naming my animals.

My first dog, when I was about 22, was a Keeshond named Sharni. His pedigree name was Kimberton Kaarle but I called him after Johan Strauss whose mother called Sharni. He and I were related in a previous life I'm sure. I still cry when I think about him.
My second was an unruly beagle named after the breeder, Evans.
Our curent psycho is a Fox Terrier cross called Kirby. Mad as a meataxe but we love him.
03-25-2005, 10:46 PM
I have a tea-cup Yorkshire Terrier named "Pippin", I named him that because I love LOTR's, the character Pippin and the sound and discription just suited him because he's tiny, like a hobbit, and a little rascal ^_^
03-26-2005, 05:04 AM
I have a toy poodle named cyrus who is the best poodle in the world and we have a ferret who's name is Heritage after my husbands motorcycle he is 8 years old we also just recently purchased a ball python who has the name Stone.

My Austrialian Sheperd/Border Collie name is Bea...
03-27-2005, 03:38 AM
:biglaugh: I just had to tell you guys about my Mom's cat, his name was "Into". He was a big black cat with beautiful green eyes. Mom named him "Into" because he was always getting into everything.
I just love reading all the pet names and stories behind them. Let's keep this thread going.
03-27-2005, 05:34 PM
I have Jack Russell mix named Willy- we got him as a puppy and tried out all sorts of names on him, but he only answered/responded to Willy so I fiugred that must be his name! He gets called lots of other things- plays on his name and some not so flattereing things when he acts up, and being a Jack it happens just about every day, hee, hee. Growing up I had an Irish terrier named Corky since her mothers name was Colleen of Cork. I have had three cats- Muffin who the runt of her litter, Zebulon called Zeb was Muffin's son, and we also had Dennis named after Dennis the Menace. One of the best names though was my son's hamster- Puffgrin cause he was puffy and looked like he was smiling.We aslos had amixed breed dog named Becky- she came with that name, her owners could no longer care for her.

2 Kitties :cat: one named Goofy and one named Minnie. Goofy is about 8 years old and a big fat black kitty, Minnie is about year and half and beautiful little calico that is very hyper and nosey.
Goofy was found by my ex-husband in the gutter. He thought he was a rat and was going to push him into the sewer and then saw that he was a cold, wet and scared little kitten with a broken tail. My daughter named him, she was about 5 and really into to the Disney Channel.
Minnie was given to us by a friend that found out she was allergic after she had her for about 2 days. So my son decided to stick with the Disney theme and named her Minnie. :cat:
If I get my wish the next pet will be a Chiuhaua named Pluto. :puppy:

I grew up with a bunch of dogs. This list will be long.. SORRY! My first dog was Megan and she was a white shepard/lab mix. She was my best friend. (my parents got her right before I was born so we grew up together). She passed away at the young age of 8 due to a lot of health problems. My dad wanted a hunting dog after that, so he bought himself a Black Lab name Jack. His AKC name was Yukon Jackson Waterwalker. (We had got him in the winter time from a breeder, and a few weeks after we brought him home, we went up to our other house in Maine and kept finding Jack splashing around in harbor near our place. After a year or so after getting Jack, I decided that I wanted my OWN dog, so I sold the shetland pony I had and bought myself a female black lab pup. I named her Dakota. Her AKC name is Dakota BearPaws Woodsong-WaterWalker. Even as a puppy she had this huge floppy feet. So cute. Of course before we bred her to Jack, I had to have them get married. After they had their ceremony my family and I sent her papers back to have the last name added as waterwalker.. I think the people the AKC thought we were odd.. but oh-well.. Dakota and Jack had 3 beautiful litters of puppies all went to good loving homes. Everyone who bought a female puppy kept the dogs lastname as Woodsong and all the people who bought the boy puppies kept the lastname as waterwalker. My mom kept a yellow pup from that litter and my sister kept a black female. The yellow ones name was Joshua and the black one was Maggy. From the second litter we kept a black male and we named him Remmington. He sadly died at the age of two from cancer. Josh and Maggy both died from cancer as well, but that happened when they were 9. Jack also died from cancer at the ripe old age of 13. Now, it's just Dakota who will be 13 this july and my boyfriends dog Taco. Taco is a small short haird chihuahua whom I bought for my boyfriend. For some odd reason my boyfriend is in love with chihuahuas. That's it!

My pets name are Tina (cat), Cinamon (pomeranian), Precious (pom), Cookie Bear (pom), and Midnight (cat).
Tina - I named her because I was only 8 and that was my favorite name at the time. I named all my baby dolls Tina, so of course my cat had to be named Tina.
Cinamon - he looks like the color of Cinamon (my sister named)
Precious - when I looked at her I said "She's so Precious" so thats what I named her.
Cookie Bear - her name started out Cookie but we added Bear because she really looks like a little bear in the face (sister named)
Midnight - we found him at night and he's all black.
04-09-2005, 05:27 PM
Well I named one of my cats (that I let my Mother adopt from me when I moved out) Romeo...I did so because of the movie Romancing the stone and I loved how in the movie she called "Romeo or Romeo where for out thow Romeo" and her cat came.
I named my cat Princess because she is one...she just seemed to deserve the name.
I named Carmel because she is Caramel in color.
I named Teeger Teeger because she looks like a tiger and is gorgeous...and Tiger was my pet name with hubby so she couldn't have that one.

I've always loved animals and shortly after my husband and I married, I told him I wanted to get a puppy. He kept telling me "no" every time I would mention it, so finally one day I said to him "OK, fine. God knows I want a puppy and he will send me the one that needs me." Shortly thereafter, Tink showed up. Since then, we've had a Spitz/Lab mix named Daisy (who, at the age of 14, went to be with the Great Master in Oct. '04), a Cocker Spaniel named Max, and three bulldogs: Sosha, Melody, & Blaze. Also, 2 chihuahuas, Petey and Cricket.
We've had several cats: Sandy was our first, and Whiskey, whose original name was Whiskers, came along about a month later. I found Hurricane in the road on the way home from work the night hurricane Frances was supposed to pass through the North Carolina mountains. She was about 5-6 weeks old, and apparently had been abandoned, as there were no houses on that deserted stretch of road. I was able place her with the Humane Society. Now we just have Heidi, a long hair, and her son Sinatra (he looks like a full Siamese...don't know where he got THAT from!), who has the most beautiful blue eyes.
Oh, and two ferrets...Rascal and Fiesty.
(Did I mention I love animals??)

Ok, so here goes...
I'll start withthe dogs:
Zack is a smooth collie mix and we got him from teh umane society. He was already named, so we kept it.
Daisy Mae is a chocolate Labrador and she was named by my neice, Ally, and it happens to be my favorite flower.
Kaden is a yellow lab and he was already named.
Bubbette is a longhaired gray calico and is named Bubbette because we thought she was a boy and looked suspiciously like the neighborhood tom cat "Bubba". Well, when we found out she was a girl my hubby called her Bubbette. She is a very snotty cat.
Static is a short hair calico and she just would CLING to you when she was tiny, so she named herself. Static "cling"
Noisey is a long haired black and white cat and she was so vocal when seh came home that she was named "Noisey"
Chatty is a grey striped short hair and she makes Noisey look like a mute! She is alwaya "talking" to us, hence the name, Chatty.
And, the newest menbers:
Ember is a black Momma cat and she has a small white spot on her chest. Emilee, my daughter named her. She has 5 kittens. I think 4 boys and 1 girl.
We've named the kittens as follows:
Buffalo (we live on Buffalo Road)
Buffy (I don't know, you'd have to ask my daughter)
Fishey (I thought it was cute to say "here fishey fishey")
Fire Truck (my son wanted to name Static Fire Truck and he's never forgotten it)
RoadKill (self explanitory named by my non-cat-loving husband)

I have one dog, a new kitten and a cat that just moved into the house.
My dog is named Mickey after my favourite baseball player, Mikey Tettleton.
My new kitten...I live on a farm, where there is a farm there are cats. Well last fall there was this new born kitten. My niece and I just got calling this kitten Simon. Well Simon's eyes got all mucky and stuff so we cleaned Simon all up and once it could see it had a new lease on life and I had a new friend. Followed me around everywhere. Well, ususally I'm not a cat person, not one for them in the house anyway, well Simon stole my heart and my boyfriend and I took it in. Well when I took Simon to the vet, she took a look and then said to me...you better add an "e" to the name so now we have ******
The cat that just moved in, well it's name is Fluff. It is a hugh 25lb ball of gray fur. The story around it. We just moved to the farm ourselves but is a family horse business. My dad has his barns here with the horses. We started to gutt out the house 14 months ago, went down to the brick walls. Well during the renovations this "cat" shows up, it has been fixed, declawed everything so thinking somebody just "dropped" it off. Well Fluff we called it and well Fluff just kinda moved into the house with all the contractors and stuff going on. Now that we are here, she isn't leaving. That we can see. She is no bother, sleeps 23 1/2 hours a day and eats the other 1/2. Never see her around, doesn't bother you, so why not. She goes in the litter box and is a good cat. Somebody lost or let go of a nice animal.
As for the other 25-30 cats we have in the barn, well my Dad has a name for all of them. Makes me laugh. Dad and his cats, but I've noticed a few more trying to move in...Fluff you talking to your friends.
