I agree with Barbara - very often cats will tell you what their name is. My sister got a cat and named him "Pismo" after one of her favorite beaches. She began calling him "Piz" after a week or so. A couple of weeks later, he wasn't responding to his name. So, my nephew said "Pismo.......Piz........" (nothing) Then, "Hey, MOE!" and the cat came. He is now only "Moe" and will not respond to anything else.

PS - I, like msalper, am a dog person. My beautiful black dog is "Katie".

We have 2 kittens, a calico named Nut & a cream & white bob tail named Tater. Hubby named them both, but the names really fit! Here's a list of other pets I've had & their names. Nut is asleep in my lap right now & Tater is asleep wrapped up in a blanket in TC's lap.

Albino rabbit- TJ
Brown rabbit- Tiger
2 goldfish- Bubbles & Jaws
Maltese- Muffin
2 parakeets- Baby Blue & Yellow
Love bird- Sweet Pea
Pug- Devon
Chocolate lab puppy- Cocoa
Australian terrier- Snook
mutt- Peanut(Hubby found him next to our house one day almost dehydrated. His owners had gone on vacation & a friend of theirs was taking care of him & he ran off. He went back home with very relieved owners.)
Blue heeler/Australian shepherd mix- BB(TC named her BB because she had one blue eye & one brown eye.)
2 cats- Smokey & Littlebit
2 kittens- Callie & Bob

These were not all at the same time & go all the way back to when I was 8 yrs. old.

Heart Attack

It is very nice feeling to have them to live with them..
It is very sad to know that he (ONY my dog) had an heart attack yesterday. We didn't know, and couldn't understand it. After result of his spit test, we now know that. But he is OK now. It is very bad that we can not do anything unfortunately... I'm sorry for this... I just want to share my feelings with you...

I'm sorry to hear about your dog msalper, but I'm glad he is ok now. Is he on any medication now, or does he have to follow a different diet? I hope he continues to do well.

Barbara

Congrats on your new friend.
Kittens are so much fun!!

My cat was born on Easter Sunday so we named here Lily (Easter Lily). We
call her Lilybean most of the time.

I've found that cats usally name themselves. Just watch her for awhile and a name will pop into your head.

But, if you want to prename kitty... of the names you posted I really like Twinky and willow. Or since she's a calico you could name her Kelly or Patches.

Have fun.

I hope Ony is okay! (I love his photograph)
Never be afraid to share this kind of stuff with us - after all, he's a member of your family!

I always liked Nerf for a kitten, I think it fits for those pets that really bounce off the walls. And now comes my long list of animals:
Huckleberry - Beagle/Basset/Lab mix
Rocko - Golden Retriever Mix
Corki - Welsh Corgi
Cricket - Jack Russell mix
Crumb - White and Grey cat
Panda - Calico cat

Thank god they're spread out across 3 different homes, lol.

Msalper, I hope Ony is doing much better now. I know how hard it is to have a pet become sick. Like jkath said, thay are a part of the family!
