Iris-pet names

February 6, 2009 | By Sarahf84 | 3 comments

I hadn't owned a cat since I was probably 8, her name was sugar, after Sugar we went on to dogs. Whenever I moved out a few years back i knew i wanted an animal, but i really wanted a dog. well, being my age (24) I am not home enough for a dog, so I got a cat. I wasn't really wanting a cat, but i wanted the company whenever i was home. She has the most unique personality of any cat i have ever known. She is my beautiful Tortoise shell cat Iris. She is black, and orange and white, brown, just looks like a bunch of different shades of browns. She is the most independent cat and that is what i love her so much, she loves to snuggle with me and always has to be in my face. she used to sleep on my chest at night and over my mouth until I had to make her sleep somewhere other then my bedroom. She doesn't like other cats, i recently got 2 more cats to watch for a friend for about a year. it took her a long time to warm up to them, she still doesnt care for them, but i have noticed that she is becoming more tolerant of them. anyways, i saw there wasn't much discussion on here so i thought i would talk about Iris, and I was wondering how everyone came up with the name of their cats?? i ran across Iris' name on a greek website and fell in love with it. Please share your stories of your cat names!!

We wanted a kitten and our neighbor had 5 to give away. She asked us if we wanted a female or male. We told her a male which we named "Leo". We went to go have him spayed and found out he was an "she". That's when Leo was changed to "Leona". And henceforth we now have a female cat!! And we love her dearly.

Hi there!
My splotchy kitty is named Cammy. We thought with the way all her beautiful colors patterned it sort of looked like camouflaged, she also has a lot of browns and oranges which reminds me of Fall so I was debating on either Piper (from Charmed), Autumn or Cammy. In the end she responded better to Cammy, so I guess that's how it stuck. Oddly enough we also call her Camilla when she's behaving poorly to make it sound like she has a full name.
