I need help with naming my cactus furry feline. Suggestions?

Asked by Jude (32134points) February 6th, 2011

I adopted him on Friday and pick him up from the shelter on Monday. He is 4 months old, was found in a barn, loves to snuggle in your arms (he flips over on his back when in your arms as if to say “Look at how handsome I am!”) and he purrs and head butts like it’s no one’s business). Gentle in nature and loves to be loved. :)

Here is the Humane Society photo.

How about “Pete,” as in “Cactus Pete?” : D

“Likes to be loved?” Don’t we all, don’t we all! : ))

Sweet kitten! How about Barney since he was found in a barn?

Aaawwwwww, that’s the cutest thing I’ve ever read!
Smoky (or is it “smokey”?).

I’ve always liked the name Geoffrey for a cat… don’t know why!

Jude's avatar

I think that I’ll pass on Fred (West).

So far, I am leaning towards Sebastian. Bas (pronounced Baz) for short.

Are you looking at the meanings? I dunno if that matters to you or not, but that’s how I name my pets.
Sebastian: Venerable
(I got those meanings for name-meanings.com, they may vary on other sites)
Personally I like Sebastian (regardless of the meaning) and I don’t have any suggestions off the top of my head but if you want other ideas, that’s one way to go about it. Think of some meanings and search to see if names fit that you like?

‘D’Artagnan’ from the three musketeers novel….

Seelix's avatar

He’s soooo cute! I think Gravy is a funny name :)

Can’t help myself.. Axel III.

Seelix's avatar

@Dutchess_III – LOL! Given the question @Judi asked, that’s perfectly inappropriate :)

Dutchess_III's avatar

: ) I just saw it. ; )

Supacase's avatar

Ash was the first thing that came to mind.

Dutchess_III's avatar

That’s good, @Supacase….more exotic maybe? Ashee. No…sounds too much like a sneeze. Who can make Ash more exotic?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

He’s sooooooo cute!!! Aw, I love him!
He reminds me of a cat I once had named Mordecai.

Supacase's avatar

Ashton? Ashley from Gone With the Wind? Asher?

Ezma Goode Kitty

or… Dr. J or Fluther!

jca's avatar

every cat that i have gotten as an adult I put so much thought into naming.

A town in northern Minnesota that I always pass on the way to camp is Gilbert. I really think Gilbert (my friend added “the fourth” on the end to make it funny) would be a good name for a cat.

Chickensmoker! XD -Or Steve Just do it!

Jude's avatar

Not crazy about Ash, nor any of the Ash names.

Biff

I had a cat named Biff for 15 years, he was a tiger striped tabby too.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I like “Biff.”

Kardamom's avatar

What a cute kitty! How about Mr. Gray or Dorian Gray? Or Gray Poupon.

Thanks for helping out the kitty and the rescue organization!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Titty then….

Scooby's avatar

How about ‘Mr sauce’ much better than “Gravy” I think :-/

Jude's avatar

Titty? Nope.

Dutchess_III's avatar

:) When I was in college one of my roommates had a dog named Titty. It was quite embarrassing to call him in the house!

Archer…

Seelix's avatar

Is he hanging out in his litter box? Silly boy.

Jude's avatar

Yes. That’s where he plays with his toys, ha..

More kitteh. Just over an hour, after I brought him home.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

He’s so cute! Did you pick a name?

chyna's avatar

Is he named yet?
He’s pretty.

Scooby's avatar

Just call him ‘shit box’ if that’s where he like to play or Mr POOPIE….. Lol..

Jude's avatar

No name, yet.

Jude's avatar

I was helping my Dad clear out his basement and we decided to take a break.

Seelix's avatar

Awww, @Jude, he looks so happy! He’s so handsome, and it looks like he’s really settling in :)

Jude's avatar

@Seelix I’m whipped. I love him. :)

chyna's avatar

Or, since he is kinda gray colored, how about Gray?

Jude's avatar

The girls at the Humane Society named him “Chevy” (sh sound, like the car. Not, like Chevy Chase). My girlfriend thinks that we should keep it and jokingly calls him little Chevrolet, haha.

My parents’ had an old, grey Chevy back in the day.

I’ve been calling him Chevy and I just may keep it.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Chevy is good.
In Julie Andrews biography she had a cat named Shy….I thought of this question immediately….

Dutchess_III's avatar

@chyna How about ‘Katawagray’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOW we’re gettin’ somewhere, folks!

Scooby's avatar

I think ‘Sooty’ would have suited better than “Chevy” now I think of it :-/
still, whats in a name…

jca's avatar

So what name did you decide on?

gorgeousgal3's avatar

Mr. Snuggles or Mr. Wiggles
