Spencer likes the name spencer. Think I have a pic of him somewhere. MC's are great kittys, no matter the name frankly! Altho he is a small MC. The VC in my YC has one that is supposidly 3+' long. ABout 30 lbs worth, spencer is all of 15 lbs.

Had an 8 lb. calico Persian long ago named Hobie. She kept us company for 24 years.

Ohhh! I do like fathom.

And, i like the idea of naming after a place we have sailed. The only problem is that the one place we keep sailing to (day trips are the limit with a 4 year old so far) is an island called " little Misery." Guess we have to goto more interesting places ;-)

These are great suggestions. And nice kitty pics. Keep it coming!

I'm so glad you like Fathom! I hope it's one of the finalists you choose from! My kitty is Gizmo. What a lovable cat!

That last one is a bit like naming your duck "Peking" or "Orange".

'Rudder'?
'Bill' (as in 'Barnacle Bill')
'Deck' - as cats tend to be constantly underfoot
'Dink'?
'Jib'?
'Cleat'?
'Fender'? (I always thought that cats would make good fenders - audible alarm and all that)
'Chock'?
'Jim' (Hawkins)
