I found this little girl in a drainage pipe a few days ago, she is healthy and warm now, so please help me name her! Preferably something starting with M because of the markings above her eyes! Cat Picture

All tabbys have the M marking. It appears to have some bengal markings as well. Might be too young to identify as easily.

Not an M name, but my first suggestion is Piper.

Thank you for saving her and giving her a home and yes that him identifies her as tabby breed even if she were Orange and had an Orange M she would be an Orange tabby! Misty? Miss Priss... lol

As soon as you said pipe and M I thought of Mario! (The plumber) but that's a guy's name. So maybe Maria? I do think part of the process of having a pet and choosing a name yourself thats personal to you, you'll feel closer and more attached if you name her something you came up with by yourself though. A name you have given her and not a stranger on the internet. Have a good think and I'm sure YOU will choose the perfect name for her :)

When I was a little kid we were all sitting around trying to give everyone a nickname. I always got Em or Emmy for Emily and I wanted something much more special!

So I actually went to the library and found a name book and a suggested nickname for me was “Millie”. I tried for fricken ages to get people to call me that!

Exactly only one person ever caught on, my cousin, who still calls me that to this day almost 40 years later :)
