So I was pondering names. Clyde started it but Muffy sure kept the thoughts going. Moms call us stupid names but we have real names. MANLY names. Clyde has a ganster name.

I was named after a rooster for two reasons. First, roosters make noise at dawn and when mom first nabbed me off the streets, I started bellowing at dawn (4:35am that August morning). Second, I clawed Mom on the same shin that her friend's rooster did with his dew-claw while attacking her. That rooster's names was Junior and HE was a manly bird. Fought all sorts of things to protect his flock. Mom named me after that Junior.

What about you guys? Tell us about your ManCat names??


Jasper,- Angel- Dreamboat- #49a

Can I get you a- drink?

Well, Jasper is a guy's name, but it frankly strikes me as a name for a tie-and-cuff-links kind of guy. A cat who has a thin mustache and owns a smoking jacket. I prefer being called Jazzie or Jazz-Bo or DJ Jazzy Jeff.

My brothers have great guy's names. Severian was named for a character in a novel who is a torturer and executioner. Broadaxes, swords, cat-o-nine-tails. Them are some tools! Torbjorn translates to "Thor's Bear," and the pink monkeys call him Bear. You can't get much more hairy, manly man than that.


The Red Rocker

Oh neato nifty names you all have! And so much fun to hear about the history of my Man Cat pals. Oh golly gee wiz my Cowboy Kitty self has a simple name - YOLO, cuz I was rescued from the Yolo County SPCA death row. Yolo County is in 1/2 of Sacramento which is in California. Some nice lady put me on a truck and shipped me from there with dogs and other kit kats to the big CIty of San Francisco where I went to the San Fran SPCA. I was really called "Bamboo" in my first months at Yolo County SPCA. Now.. I ask you - who ever heard of a Man Cat named Bamboo? Yee Haw

Tabby Little

In love- with- Missy!
Purred: Thu Jan 28, '10 10:13pm PST 
Uh boy, do I have to? Well here goes:

I am least of a pint, but not to be confused with Halfpint, who was my half sisfur.

I am smaller than a football, which is okay, I don't get out on the field anyway.

I am orange and striped, so that makes me a tabby.

Well, put the tabby with being little, well, do you get it........now do you really get it?


But I'm tuff, really tuff, so the tuff don't mess wif me, I'm a construction crew memfur and don't you furget it. HAHA just kiddin' wif yabig laugh


Meow like you- mean it!!

Well, mum & dad had a long discussion over what to name me. I was mom's pick so ultimately she got the deciding vote on my name.

Anyways, they thought since I was such an orange little kittymy name should have something to do with that color. So they discussed and couldn't come up with any cute orange names. Then mom remembered about the drink Orange Julius and wala! Julius became my name.

Now mom says I have grown into my name in another aspect...Julius Caesar...she says I'm quite the little ruler over the other kitties winklaugh out loud

Dirty Harry

Purr- like you mean- it
Purred: Fri Jan 29, '10 10:32am PST 
Well, dad got to pick me out at the shelter so he got to name me. He is a big Clint Eastwood fan so he named me Dirty Harry after that tough cop character Dirty Harry Callahan.

Mom just calls me Harry. She actually liked what I was named at the shelter, Peter. But me, I like my name. Its tough like me!

So if you want to make fun of my name, "you've got to ask yourself 1 question, Do I feel lucky? Well, DO ya, punk?" "Go ahead, make my day!"
laugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loudlaugh out loud How's that for a tough mancat?
thinking I just don't know why I let that Julius be the top cat of the houseshrug Guess cause he was here first.

The Silly Guy

I'm named after one of the coolest, most manly cats in Hollywood, Paul Newman. He passed away just a couple of weeks before I was adopted, but Mom wasn't sure about the name "Paul" for me. One of his best known flicks was "Cool Hand Luke" and Mom likes the name Luke - it's very masculine sounding. I don't have his famous blue eyes, but Mom thinks I am just as handsome!
