I currently have a dog, although he is very old and sick, and I must put him down soon. To help with the transition, I got a new pet. I didn't know if my heart was ready for another dog, but a cat seemed appropriate...

My dog's name is Kirby, after Jack Kirby. So to keep with the theme, I was thinking of naming the new cat Fiona, after Saga artist Fiona Staples, or Pia, after Pia Guerra from Y the Last Man.

However, my family has a long history of jokey pun names for our pets too. So I'm open to that as well...

These are pun names I've narrowed it down to:

Kit Kat
Purrfessor X
Kitty Pryde / Shadowcat
Krysten Litter
Meowy-Louise Pawker
Cat Benatar
Cat Blanchett
Kat Dennings
Kat Beckinsale
Kat Upton
Kat Winslet
Kim Cat-trall
Rosario Pawson
Pawker Posey
Pawdrey Hepburn
Puma Thurman
Meowmi Watts
Amy Pawler

That looks like a cat from my past, her name was Lucy, or Lucy Fuzz.  She was the sweetest thing and i miss her even after all this time.

I always name my cats based on their personality. I had a black cat with a really cranky sounding meow and named her "little miss sunshine" or Missy for short.

My current cat like to jump and  leap at random and unexplained times so he's "Sir Pounce-a-lot".

I've got two torties that want absolutely nothing to do with me, and follow my wife around like she's Cleopatra.

Last time I had a cat-naming poll I ended up with Entropy.

/Jello Biafra was a close second
//Entropy was a cool kitty
///Tiny, stone-cold killer

Congratulations on your new family member! Cats are very good at being present when our world develops cracks. She is a lucky young lady, I hope you have long happy healthy lives together.
Names...
Ms. Fairchild
Lady Purrington
Kirby worked on the X-Men but I don't know if he worked on Kitty Pryde. Maybe a nod to your Kirby with Katherine Anne Pryde or one of her aliases???

When I was a kid one of our neighbors had a black cat named Black Cat. Not the most imaginative people.

Not to sound like a total hippy, but maybe let it pick it's own name.  Both my cat's did.  One's name Cupid because he's a lover, and the other is name Twitch because he was like a cracked up methhead as a kitten.

/The methhead has calmed down by age 7.

Tourtière.  A bit like "tortie", and a bit like a pork pie.

Well, I'm partial to Jezebel, Jess for short, and Lucifer, Lucy for short.  Or Bast, because hey, cat God.

If the dog is named Kirby, don't you have to name the cat Lee?
 
2020-10-25 5:20:46 AM  
It isn't original but if I get a cat its name is Guppy.

Was doing the dutiful son thing, helping out with the "move heavy mulch objects for mom" thing.

Found Black Feral kitty, There wasn't any evidence of a big critter taking him to his lair, just mousey and bug things. It's kind of disturbing how much I know about animal forensics that I did not ever want. Basically just a skeleton and kitty bones, and a fur hide.

I think he just lay down below his favorite tree and just never woke up. He obviously lived a very long and very hard life. (he was a pretty old and beat up kitty.) I dug him a grave and curled him into it, and mom covered him with leaves under that same tree, so presumably he is in a good place. He didn't leave unloved.

Still want to know what happened with my Dobby. That very much concerns me.

He's missing half a leg, but it doesn't slow him down! He is a mighty hunter and no older than ten weeks

My German cousin's girlfriend named her cat Paula- except it's pronounced "Pow-la." I got a video of his young nephew following the cat under the table and yelling "POWWWW-LAAAA!!!"
