The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey--
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter--
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover--
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

~ T. S. Eliot

We have four kittens Chorizo, Yoga, Lily and Sherpa who are looking for loving homes here in Bangalore. Born on July 31st, the kittens are now 3 months old, potty-trained and completely weaned off their mommy, KitKat.

Chorizo also known as Zooey. Chorizo loves eating, sleeping and being carried and cuddled. He spends all his waking time grooming his BFF, Yoga.

Yoga Bear or Yoga is a sweet calm babygirl who loves stretching, meditating and striking poses on the treadmill. If you’re a lady who wears red nail paint, Yoga will love you instantly. 

Sherpa - this feisty li'l boy is a ball of energy. He loves belly rubs, a good meal and chasing Lily’s tail.

Lily is so named because she was the runt of the litter. She was the underdog, this spirited little bow-wow. But she’s a cat and she’s tiny so she’s Lilliput. Lily, for short. Lily and her forever companion Sherpa love the outdoors, chasing flies and tugging tails.

You can’t buy happiness but you can adopt it.
