I've just taken in an approximately six-month-old tortoiseshell cat (as yet unfixed and hopefully not pregnant). She is a doll and I have photographic evidence
to prove it
. I'm stumped for a name, though, so like many before me, I turn to the hivemind for help.
My only criteria is that she needs a name that would be unlikely to be given to a person. I thought about calling her Grendel, but it doesn't feel quite right. Past cats have been named Alexander Rozhenko (courtesy Beardman
), Franklin, Stella, Perdu, and Matlock. (Stella and Matlock currently live with my sister.) Her personality is yet difficult to determine -- so far what I know is that she chirps instead of meows, she play bites rather than scratches, she likes to be picked up or sit on laps, and she is still terrified of the dog (but she'll come around, they always do).
