All cats have personalities. I name mine accordingly. Sometimes it takes months to get a name and then I've had cats named on the spot. It took Monkey 3 months to receive his. After four hours of non-stop playing, jumping, crawling, climbing. Getting into everything that I was cleaning and he'd mess up before it was clean. Jumping on my back. He finally tired out and as I look at him. I said Monkey. He had other names I was thinking of, T.T. for Trailer Trash. I didn't think it was loving, funny though. Rat for obvious reason and Radar, his Massive Ears. He is a mix Maine Coon and one of the loves of my life.

I have a lil black kitty with two white circles on her breast and a white triangle on her tummy. I started to name her Bikini, but since my lil girl is a Southern belle like her mama, I named her Dixie!
