Yet another cat naming question ...
March 11, 2013 12:07 PM Subscribe
We are about to adopt a gorgeous pair of young cats. They are 1yo, brother and sister, tabby and white, mainly white with tabby spots and blotches and stripey tails. She is smaller than him. They are rangy at the moment but will be indoor cats and will probably become "fine" and content with time. Quite lively but friendly. They have, erm, had kittens together already (the boy is now neutered and the girl gets done next week), so bonus points for incestuous brother-sister pairs (I am already mining Iris Murdoch's novels for some but they don't have great cat names).

I promise there will be photos. We are British, an editor and a computer support person, 40s, no kids. The cats are currently called Charlie and Lola. These are characters in a children's book and not really appropriate. The shelter is fine with us changing the names but want us to decide soon so the chips can be the right name.
Previous cat names I have used - (For I Shall Consider My Cat) Jeoffrey (c.f. the poem), Bathsheba Everdene and Eustacia Vye (Sheba and Stacey), Tabitha and Dot. Previous animal names OH has used - Snowy (mouse), Streaky (bunny) (he shared Dot with me from when she was 5 to when she recently passed aged 16.5).
Any more you need to know, please ask. We will be visiting them soon to take a towel to them with our scent on; I promise I will take all the photos then.
