Help Me Name My Kitty

Tue Dec 20, 2005 3:00 pm

I just adopted a new kitty and I'm taking him home tomorrow after he gets fixed. I'm trying to think of a name for him, but I'm drawing a blank. I'd like to name him something aviation or math related, but I'm open to anything. Right now, I'm leaning towards calling him Mobius, or Moby for short. What are any of your suggestions?

If it helps, he's about a year old, average sized, medium hair, and he's brown and white. His name at the pound was Oreo, for some reason lost on me.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Math related... hmmmmm ... How about 'Square Route' ?  Wink

When I saw your user name, Maybe call him 'Nanook'. My nick name was 'Nanoo' because I couldn't pronounce my 'M's and my 'T's when I was little.

We were joking about that in the office earlier today. Maybe if it was an all white kitty, but I just couldn't name a brown and white cat after a polar bear, could I? Plus I don't have that much alma mater/employer pride.


I also like Bernoulli (Bernie for short) and Gimli.

Was he broken when you bought him? I'd take him back. Or is this work being performed under warranty?

Quoting FlyingNanook (Thread starter):

Well, considering that you are "getting him fixed", I guess naming him "multiplication" is out of the question, right?

Seriously, how about "Aileron" or "Airfoil", or maybe even "Rudder", but that sounds too much like "Udder". "VeeOne?" "Rotate?" "Turbine?" "Touchdown?" "Vapor?"

My cat was named Siber. I loved that name. He got put to sleep a few weeks ago because of Diabetes and he was only 8...so sad.

My other cat, who is still alive, is named Pickle, don't as me why my sister chose that name...I have no idea. Those are just two ideas to go on.

There is a secret to get a cat back, stick a piece of sellotape over its arse hole and watch it try to get it off... its tongue wont reach and so it has to plant its back end on the ground and shuffle along like a dog with worms to get it off...

Haha... That always brings me joy...

My cat acts the same way, but all cats have a soft side. They'll cuddle up in your lap for a nap, and be very affectionate and loyal if you treat them well.

It depends more on how you make them. Tamales are pretty good but you have to boil the meat first or they won't be tender enough!  vomit 
Ground up like hamburger meat is good if you want to go the enchilada route, though. Just add plenty of sauce, it's kind of a "gamey" meat. Ironically, it tastes like chicken.

You could always name it "Cat". That way you always know what animal it is and when you call it's name, other animals (or people) around your house don't get confused either...
