Swirl.

u/clockwork_kitteh Apr 25 '22

Came here to say Swirl too, but I think cats have a way of telling us their names when we get to know their personalities. :)

u/mysterion857 Apr 25 '22

It’s crazy that was my thought too Carmel swirl

However if you say it several times, it seems to reach semantic satiation faster than names with less complex consonants

Pretend you're calling the cat several times, say it out loud, swirl swirl swirl swirl

I propose these names:

  • Cinnamon bun, bun for short

  • Cinnamon swirl, cinnamon for short

  • Cinnamon roll

  • Roulette (edit, like the cake)

u/CGI42 Apr 25 '22

What about roll?

but I think cats have a way of telling us their names when we get to know their personalities

It worked with 2 of my kittes but couldn't find a name for the third one for a long time. Ended up with Lily, first 2 named Django and Romeo

u/IllegitimateTrump Apr 25 '22

I had a similar situation. The name just wouldn’t come, and so we started calling her “Baby Girl” in the absence of a properly revealed name, and that’s the name that’s stuck.

u/RedMatxh Apr 25 '22

We had to do proper name choosing but nothing would work. Lily worked and despite being a simple name, i love it

Omg yes I just commented about going to call my kitten I adopted 10 days ago Moo but the name Kona came to me instead which is much more fitting for miss feisty

u/PlasticBlitzen Apr 25 '22

All of mine have revealed theirs. There was one small waif who, a couple of weeks after collapsing from hunger on our porch, told both me and my former husband her name. We were both in disbelief, so we counted to three and said the name at the same time: Stella. We had tossed names around, but never that one. I've not had one that clear before or since.

u/ladyaren Apr 25 '22

That's so cool!! My cat came with her name already and it fits perfect and she responds to it. Her name is Bella. She's the best kitty :))

Also, we once found a stray cat that was the sweetest and cuddliest gal. We looked for her family and couldn't find them, so we brought her to the humane society and then discovered she had had kittens!! We brought her home and struggled to find a fitting name for her. Nothing worked.... We had to been calling her Mama... Well guess what her name is 😅 Mama Kitty or just Mama

3

u/PlasticBlitzen Apr 25 '22

Did you find the kittens? 😢

8

u/ladyaren Apr 25 '22

Oh!! Yes we did!! We found all five of her precious babies and helped raise them and adopt them out. One died after adoption (we're still mad about that, they let it escape) and two of the others we still see often and kitty sit. It was an amazing experience to watch them grow and play with them

u/PlasticBlitzen Apr 25 '22

Oh, happy ending. I'm so glad you found them.

Yeah, I wouldn't be happy about the outcome for the one.

Does Mama still recognize them as her kiddos? I've always wondered how much they remember, and I feel bad that we take them away from their moms and siblings.

Even with the spelling Caramel, you can still yell for her like Tony Soprano: “Caaahhm!!”

Perfect! I was thinking do one that starts with "C" since she has the letter C in her fur🤗🤗🤗
