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!
We once had a customer come to our place called Quita, but we had no idea how to pronounce it. We figured that it sounded like this, so we named our cat after how we thought we should spell it, Keeta.
I name all my pets with a z name. We have a Zoey, zody, zayla, and zeba
Our cat Klaus is named after Klaus Voormann, who was best friends with the Beatles and supposedly took them for their iconic haircuts. Klaus was an amazing artist who did the cover for Revolver and also played bass for Lennon during his solo years.

My little Delino
He was a Sienese kitten that only lived to be 5 months old. When I got him I looked into his eyes and knew that the name Delino was the perfect name for a kitten that was only on this earth long enough for me to fall in love with him. Rest in Piece my little Delino.
Beloved is the meaning of the name Davion
My furry son, Davion didn't get his name right away. In fact he was so adorable, that we mistook him, as a girl. When I was washing his little behind on the second day after I brought him home, I noticed he was in fact a boy. So, I knew that he needed a good name. I found the name Davion on a pet names website, the meaning is simply: "beloved", and he is. His name fits him.
