Posted on 08/02/2012 2:34:41 PM PDT by POWERSBOOTHEFAN

We adopted two kittens today,a boy and a girl.

They're black-and-white and only 3 months old.

Now we just have to pick names for them.

What kind of names do you favor?

We favor giving cats saints’ names. (Martin, Jean-Marie, Dominic)

Others like a name that describes some aspect of the cat (color: oreo, temperament: spunky, etc.)

Others are just random.

Good! I’m sure Leo is happy knowing that these kitties are enjoying the loving house he knew.

Photos, we need photos! Congrats on adopting two little homeless ones.

I will not suggest a name to you but I took in two feral cats who live in my backyard. I named them “Bubble and Squeak,” which is a wonderful English dish of potatoes and cabbage. It is a popular name in Great Britain to give to a pair of cats. I’m sure you will find something equally popular!

For our two, I picked Weber for our male, after looking at my grill, and my wife picked Katie for cute little female.

Although you should be an expert on all things feline, I should let you and the OP know that BlackElk already has had a Bonnie and Clyde pair. Any others would be derivative.

TWO kitties?!! Let me guess.. you went to look for just one and they both looked so CUTE together that you couldn’t separate them? (that is how we ended up with Lucy and Lilly). Congratulations! Names... how about Puss and Boots, Romeo and Juliet, or Bonnie and Clyde? Now for the BIG question... has Pumpkin come out from under the bed yet?

Congrats! I found a two week old abandoned kitten and now she is about three months old. We call her Squeaky. Now she thinks she owns my den and has the gall to criticize my art work!

As found.

Three weeks ago.

The girl cat is my sister’s and the boy cat belongs to me and my mother.

My sister is choosing the girl’s name while my mother and I are trying to decide on a boy’s name.

My mother and I are thinking about calling him Joey but we’re not 100% sure.

The female is suckling on the male! She’s also kneading on him and he doesn’t even mind.

“LOL. I don’t know about that.”

You’re right. How about Pork and Beans?

(Beans was an actual name of a girlfriend of mine once upon a time. Last name was Bean, became known as Beansy - I just called her beans. She was full of Beans). That’s my best effort.

Eclipse

We have a female cat. Sheena. But I (fondly) refer to her as The Bean Child. The only thing that cat will eat besides dry cat food is refried beans. And apparently she doesn’t speak a word of English...

We have a new kitten a few weeks old. Goes from zero to 60 mph in under a second. - I got two new long necked spray bottles which I filled with distilled water (plain water will do). There’s not much she’s not allowed to do, but I SPRITZ her when she gets up on the kitchen counters or starts getting right under my feet when I’m trying to walk. (I cannot allow her to trip me up and cause me to fall and break my bones or hers if I can help it. The water doesn’t hurt her, but sure makes her skedaddle fast.) Her name is Zippy De Doo Dah, Zippy for short, Zip for even shorter. - If we can see photos, it will help with suggesting names; but really it’s actually your call on the names.

My mother and I are thinking about calling him Joey but we’re not 100% sure.

Practically speaking, it is a good thing to give a cat a name that is short, distinct and doesn't sound like other commonly used names. JOEY fits all three.

Jean-Marie (male, pronounced zhahn-muh-rrrree), knew his name, and he would always meow when we called him by it. If we wanted him to come, we would use his preferred name: "Food for kitty!"

My sister in law named her pair Luke and Leia. Of course, she's a bit of a Star Wars fan, but it works. For more old school there's always George and Gracie or Ricky and Lucy (Fred and Ethel?), or my choice:

Norton and Trixie
