A New Contest: Name That Cat and Win Lunch

Name that cat. And, no, I'm not choking him; just posing him.
Today I picked up a new friend at Roanoke Animal Rescue and I don't have a name for him yet. That's where you come in.

I need some help naming the little guy. Here are the specifics:

The cat is a short-haired white male, with green eyes, about nine months old, affectionate, active and stone deaf. He walked into my house for the first time and simply owned it. He's not an arrogant little guy, but he is curious and seems to like to have fun.

So, submit your suggested name to and the winner will win lunch with me at Noah's at the Taubman Museum. If you don't want to eat with me, I'll give you a gift certificate and you can take whom you choose.

Right now, the cat doesn't have a name, but it doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of difference, since he can't hear it anyway. The name's for me, not him.


  1. How about Pooka - A fairy spirit in animal form from Celtic mythology...a wise but mischievous creature.

  2. Pooka was the only name recommended in the requested way (by e-mail). The others are good, but I didn't see them until after the contest was over. Sorry. I like every one of these.
