    None but all the cats around here are called “stop sh*tting on my lawn you maingy b*stard”..


    none but the neighbours visits several times a day 🙂


    Chole and Fudge.

    Chole was Fudge’s Mum, but they hated each other – both dead now, thank God.

    2 here.

    Mickey and Millie. Don’t know why, that’s what they were called when we got them and they answer to their names.

    Usually referred to as ‘Bloody Cats’.

    They do there business in our own garden too, which is just lazy.

    Tilly (Family cat, died when I was away at university and my parents didn’t even tell me.)
    Bailey (Family cat, adopted by me when my parents started neglecting him and then treacherously outed themselves as heartless, evil dog people, which explains a lot.)
    Steve and Deeley (Sisters, Steve was a runt and a complete nutter, she went missing aged 3. Deeley was the best cat ever but she was run over last summer and I’m still really sad about it 🙁 .)
    Marsha (Still with us, lovely but a bit stupid.)
    Emma (Adopted but didn’t get on with Marsha at all, and had to be rehomed.)

    Also numerous foster kittens and their mums.

    There is no honour in cats.

    Indeed…here too!

    One called Frank didn’t want him but didn’t get a choice he moved in as a kitten just walked in the patio door no one claimed him after months of posters saying “is this your cat?” that was ten years ago. Wouldn’t be without the moggy now.

    Cost thousands as well in food and vets bills over the years and yet I regret none of it.

    Claude, Ginny, Dexter and Ed.


    One called Cat. In my defense it just turned up one day, so I have no idea what it’s name is.

    My brother has one called Catty. He doesn’t have an excuse.


    I took in two cats when I lived in China. I inherited the first, XiaoP (‘Little Pete’), who’d gone half feral after being locked in a basement for months. The second was a kitten wandering round the area where we lived (Bobo, a contraction roughly meaning ‘Little Persian’). I really miss my two little guys, but they’re well looked after and a lot luckier than most Chinese cats.

    Che Guevara
    Nelson Mandella
    Bobby Charlton.

    Bobby has basically moved in with someone else down the road, so has become an occasional visitor. The mercenary little sod.

    And this morning either Che or Nelson have upped their game by replacing the usual mouse or vole gift, left at the back door, with a big fat hamster. 😯

    I kid you not. Where the hell have they got a hamster from? I suspect there may be repercussions to this!


    There is one in our house that belongs to my other half – personally, I hate the thing.

    It is called Harry and did have a brother called Lloyd but he met an untimely end on a road. I didn’t mind him too much, but the one we’re left with is massively annoying…very aloof, whinges a lot and is generally a pain.

    Bobby’s new owners have lost a hamster?


    Another one called Cat, short for little bastard.

    Pussy aka Fatso, “the effing cat has peed again” and “when is she going to die”
    Socks was her daughter, mad as anything but died a couple of years ago (weak heart) I still miss her but I suspect the local fauna is very thankful

    This is a warning of what happens when you let toddlers name pets, two words you can’t allow your kids to google without parental controls 😯

    We have a fleet of cats, three indoors ones who are now ex-pat-cats after moving from Edinburgh to Germany.
    Ben, Ginger and AKA Nutter
    Eddie, Ex stray, just walked in and despite us castrating him, has stayed for the last 6 years.
    Tigger, Inherited from the B&B next door

    Plus, two living in our garage
    Kitten, because it is a kitten
    Mum-cat, because its kittens mum

    Then there are the two from next door…. and across the road there are another 5 …


    Whiskey – don’t remember how he died (old age hopefully)
    Blacky – got locked in a barn and ate rat poision
    Jack – old age/kidney failure
    Prawn – stroke
    Alice – old age/kidney failure
    Taz – 14+ and currently pee-ing on the bathroom carpet regularly..
    Pisci (pronounced pesky)- youngest and most pesky! She raids all the locals bbq’s the morning after & come back with black feet and lumps of meat or eats anything left out for the birds!

    Muscat, small grey girl, ex-feral; cute but always afraid.
    MacGregor, 9kg of male ginger attitude. Often referred to as the ginger minger. Bullies the wee one and eats pheasants & hares for fun.

    Smudge tabby British shorthair (aka stupid). Like to get herself into draws/cupboards and often takes a few hours to find her. Completely chilled – happily stares down our 4month old psycho patterdale terrier and sleeps with our border terrier.

    Domino silver spotted British shorthair. A bit scaredy and spends most of her time next door on sofa of 75yr old neighbour.

    Just one named Smokey, he came from the cats home and had grey fur with brown swirls that looked like smoke, but they grew out so now it just as though Mrs Ed couldn’t think of anything original 🙂 he has decided he likes me as he’s generally a blokes cat, when he goes there won’t be any more in the house because there can only be one

    One, that came as a team with my Wife. He’s called Figaro.


    You know how I somehow always manage to win the ‘how many bikes?’ threads? Well, my lil’ sis’ is pretty much the same . . . only with cats 😆

    Oh, and I have just one cat . . . Catty Jacques, aka Hattie


    My last two were Alto and Stratus (‘cos they were grey).


    Merlin and Megan both domestic, but we have a new wild feral that is taking ownership to our garden, we have named him Tigger, a huge long haired spotted tabby that only comes near when he is hungry a real bruiser of a cat!


    Six at the last count – last two were acquired despite my words “over my dead body”.



    What’s the connection with the names ?

    Current Ferrets:

    EP (extended Persephone)
    Jacob aka Cobbles
    Dark Star
    Keva aka Pockets
    Star Buck ( who lives up to her name, hates the world and picks fights with everything including our Staffs)

    We have had but sadly gone;
    Teela, Canth, Third, Kahless long ferret, Romulus, Remus, Cassiopeia, Lex, Fayd, Trinity, Neo, Storm, Bronson, Mouldy, Fungus, Weena-wu, Persphone, Bomber, Husker, Hera, Conrad Black, Shiva, Vladimir, Leto, Mystique, Helva, Morticia, Wednesday, Thor (the worlds most po faced ferret), Jayne Cobb, Coop, Vinnie, Martok (probably missed a few rescues)

    Where do some of you store all your cats?!

    Firstly acquired Pablo and Petal (aka knuckle-head when I refer to her), a mother-son duo from a foster home. Is it an unwritten rule that foster pet names can’t be changed? As of last week, Petal decided that purring at full volume at 4.30am was a fantastically good idea.

    Then acquired Maceo from the SIL. Maceo thinks it’s enormously entertaining to screech like a demented parrot at feeding time. The other two stare at him quietly, slowly retracting their claws.
