Zoe’s cat just had kittens. They’re pedigreed, and Zoe (not her real name) plans to sell them. But for now, they’re just too cute for words. She needs to come up with some cat names.
‘Tiger’, ‘Tigger’, ‘Socks’, ‘Boots’ … all too mundane for Zoe. She watches the kittens to see if their behavior will suggest a name. The littlest one is a cry baby, whimper whimper whimper. ‘Cria’! A well deserved moniker.
Then there’s the one with four white socks, very prim and proper as she nurses. ‘Socks’? No. ‘Socks Fifth Avenue’! Perfect.
And the boy cat with the white breast. ‘Blaze’? No, that’s a name for a horse! ‘Chesta’? Yeah. Chesta the Cat. She can see him now in her mind’s eye, all grown up, puffing out that chest as he puts the make on some young kit.
Coming up with cat names is good exercise for the imagination. Zoe realizes her names may be temporary. The people who claim these kittens will have their own ideas. On the other hand, the names may stick. So she does her best to choose fitting ones.
That’s all right. For now, she gets to play the name game!
The largest kitten keeps teasing the others to get them to play. She bats a paw here, slides her nose under a belly there. Gently, though. ‘Teasle’!
Okay, there are two more. Twins, look-alikes. Each has white front paws. She can barely tell them apart, except that one likes to move forward while the other’s always backing up. How about back-to-back names, like ‘Mitten Kitten’ and ‘Kitten Mitten’? That way, even if one were to forget which was which, they would probably still respond!
