|Cat's Name||Photo||The Story Behind the Name|
Just a cute little boy tuxedo. A shelter cat rescued and loves everyone.
Vona, the Icelandic word for Hope
Vona is the Icelandic word for Hope. I found a stray cat that was missing all of her fur and she pulled through. She is a miracle.
Ginger Kitty "Gigi"
When we picked her up from the pound, my sister was only 1 year old and she couldn't say "Ginger", so she called the cat "Gigi". The name stuck with me so our cat's name is Gigi.
we are getting a little ginger boy in a couple of weeks
we wanted a name that wasn't common but not so unusual and easy to prounce
Always on the move
He's the most adorable and friendly cat, but never stops moving. He jumps on everything and tries to play with the other cats and dogs in the house, but only ends up annoying them. He never stops running, jumping, pouncing and exploring.
He's a black smoke tabby and with his temperament the name came quite easily. He;s called Arashi, which means storm in Japanese.
My kiko was a stray. It took me 8 months to get him to come near me to eat. When He didn't show up I would call kitty kitty. When he finally came I would always say oh, in relief that he was okay. This his name kiko! He was deserving of a name instead of just Kurt kitty. I love him. I am so happy to have saved him. He lives comfortable in doors with his family.
My beautiful persian rescue cat, D.J. Meow lost his battle with kidney disease and diabetes on February 4, 2017. When he drank water, he would move his right paw back and forth like he was scratching a record. I really miss him.
My Zen baby
I found a kitten who was very under weight and just needed a good home to start his life. I cleaned him up, fed him, and just loved on him. That night I noticed he was just so sweet and laid back, he rolls over wanting you to rub his belly. He keeps you calm and focused. First name that came to mind was Zen. He's just so peaceful and full of love!
Taj Malik: Crowned King
Taj Malik was a stray cat for years. He was illusive, tough and no to cat friendly. After being neutered and in my house for several months, Taj became a cuddle bug. He loves to be pet and he plays like a kitten. He is a Birman or Snow Shoe Siamese, DLH. Taj means Crown and Malik means King. So, together Taj Malik means Crowned King.
Lord Vader, Conquerer of Hearts....
Who could resist the name "Vader" for a huge, fluffy black cat?! He was chosen from a litter a coworker of my son's ex-girlfriend had brought to work one day. My son had been wanting a black kitten for quite some time and upon seeing him, a little but also huge black ball of fur, she couldn't resist.
Vader is truly a member of the family of cats who produce the double layer of fur you see in cats from the coldest regions of the world. He has a super thick undercoating of fur to keep him warm in winter, as well as the long bits of fur on the bottom of his feet to protect his delicate paws not only for protection from the bitter cold, but also hot sands as well.
His name was pretty simple to conjure up due to the ever popular Star Wars movies in that the super villain's persona was an evil and menacing flavor of black and struck terror in the hearts of all. Our Vader is the exact opposite...he's a huge cat, and a big baby at about 13-14 pounds (he looks like he'd weigh in at 25 pounds though), bright yellow eyes that seem to stay half closed all the time and a meow that's barely heard, except when he's dragging his toy (a back scratcher with a long string tied to the end of it)in for my son to throw for him to fetch and return dragging it between his legs, and talking at the same time! The other important thing about his name is that the building where my son's girlfriend worked, was a big black one of all things, was called the "Vader Building"!
I'll write about my pure white cat a bit later...his name is Sweety and serves as my nickname with Uber since my son set the account up in the email containing his name. Plus I used to write in yahoo's Answer column to answer questions about cats...my by-line was 'Sweety says..." He and Vader are inseparable, but definitely know which one of us belongs to whom!
