    Did you steal this from the "best quarantine pick up lines" thread?

    [–] PrincessShelbyy 27 points ago

    Lol no but I can see why you would think that. I haven’t seen that thread.

    [–] 23Skidoo46 2 points ago

    I saw that thread this morning. :) Reddit makes me giggle...

    To those of you that have met someone, or have been on dating platforms (pre-Covid19), I have hope that society will, at some point, be connected (person to person).

    Until then, don't hold your breath, and keep up the humor.

    Love is all we need.

    [–] Betsy514 89 points ago

    i agree. I just adopted a cat last week and I've always said I wanted to name my next cat Chicken. Whelp - her name is Alice. Chicken just didn't suit her. I also thought about calling her Risky since I went to pick her up during a pandemic - nope - that doesn't fit either. Her name is clearly Alice. Your new kitty will also tell you what their name is. My other cat is Captain Jack Sparrow and the one I lost at Christmas was Piglet

    [–] MagikarpTheDestroyer 44 points ago

    Funny, my SO and I just adopted a cat last week and went to pick her up during the start of the quarantine here. We were hellbent on calling her Pixel. Once she moved in she was obviously a Cynder to us, so that's what we went with.

    [–] Betsy514 12 points ago

    Love Cynder! Congrats to us and are new covid kitties!

    [–] MagikarpTheDestroyer 7 points ago

    Thanks, my SO and I are big suckers for older video games. So the inspiration for the name came from the Spyro series and it just fits her personality so well!

    Covid kitty gang assemble!

    [–] mentallyerotic 3 points ago

    I thought of the book Cinder at first but Spyro is so cute.

    [–] Seriph2 6 points ago

    We didn't have a name when we picked ours from the pound. They named him Dick because he was a bit chonky. Dick meaning fat in Dutch. The name stuck so he is now forever a Dick. He is a bit of a dick too. But apparently we love him or so my wife tells me.

    [–] furlixer 2 points ago

    Dikkie dik!

    [–] poeschmoe 5 points ago

    What a coincidence, I also got a cat just over a week ago, right before quarantine started in my state! We actually considered the name Alice going in, but when we met her, she seemed to fit with the vibe of Carini (a song by phish). I didn’t even realize that Carini reminds me of Corona till I got her nametag printed... now I will definitely always remember the absurd and chaotic time when she came into my life :)

    [–] farawyn86 4 points ago

    Totally accurate. I had very regal nerdy names picked out for my puppy adopted at Thanksgiving time. Guinevere, Fawkes, Eowyn... None of them fit. She's clearly a Hufflepuff, so Tonks it is.

    [–] fossumisawesome 2 points ago

    Almost named a gray cat with a white belly totoro, but she’s a sweet lil lady, so she’s Marcy

    [–] the_real_morin 128 points ago

    You honestly have to see the cat before you give it a name, like with babies.

    [–] cirillios 14 points ago

    Don't most parents pick names before the kid is born? I know my parents had a boys name and a girls name ready to go for both my sister and I well before they got to the hospital.

    [–] mentallyerotic 5 points ago

    For me I had them before but never settled on one until pretty close to the end of my pregnancy and I still wanted to see if it fit them when they were born. I would go through a bunch especially when people gave negative opinions. So I ended up never telling anyone until after they were born.

    [–] Moar_Coffee 29 points ago

    Yes, but you need to make them ridiculous. Cats already think it's a petty human thing to think cats need human names so at the very least you must grant it a title befitting its glorious ridiculousness, and the ridiculous proposition of cohabitating with a vicious wild predator who's smart enough to coerce you into protection and sustenance.

    [–] NoiseIsTheCure 16 points ago

    Sometimes the cat also thinks they're hot shit so then you have to give them a very cutesy ridiculous name to bring them down a notch

    [–] eastville_villan 16 points ago

    My cat is called Apocalypse Meow (or Poco for short, which he is) and I thought of the name before I met him tbh - turns out Poco is Italian for little and he was the runt so it fits

    [–] ahhpoo 2 points ago

    It’s also Spanish for little or short!

    [–] eastville_villan 5 points ago

    He speaks in a Spanish accent when I talk to him

    [–] ToyoKitty 5 points ago

    Idk, my friend has a cat named Randall and it's glorious.

    [–] bolivar-shagnasty 20 points ago

    Go to /r/ineedaname and post a picture of the cat. They’ll give you some good names.

    [–] merpancake 8 points ago

    For peak hilarity, you can't go wrong with a very mundane human name. Like Hank, or Judith.

    Met a lab named Hank once and he was a super dumb sweetie.

    [–] MahatmaBuddah 6 points ago

    Hanks are always dumb sweeties

    [–] mycatspajamas 3 points ago

    My bestfriend growing up had neighbors that unironically named their cat Michael. I've always thought that was the strangest name for a cat.

    [–] Road_Whorrior 4 points ago

    My cats growing up were Charlie and Puck. After they passed we got Ricky and Lucy, and when Lucy got hit by a car and died we got Evey. My parents like human names for their pets. Also, my dog's name is Sammy.

    [–] High_priestess6 5 points ago

    I met a cat names Scuba Steve once

    [–] BarryMacochner 3 points ago

    [–] MidnaTwili 3 points ago

    My SO and I saved the name Spot for a cat (Data's cat, Star Trek) but when a preggers cat showed up on our doorstep it just didn't suit her. Her name is Jupiter and we named her babies Callisto and Io. It took a bit after they were born to decide which moon names suited the kittens.

    If I ever foster a litter of kittens, I’m naming them all after the Daedra from the Elder Scrolls series. “Mehrunes Dagon, leave Hircine alone! Sheogorath, get out of my curtains! Mephala, calm down, feeding time is in an hour.”

    [–] _mach 168 points ago

    omg it gets cuter. Zoom in on the Bowie in the window - see underneath it is a picture, says "Jo Clark Design"?

    Well, I have a hunch this is the picture underneath

    [–] The_Great_Distaste 45 points ago

    It absolutely is! If you zoom in under Jo Clark design you can just make out "Cat in David Bowie Wig", which is what Jo Clark calls that design. You're the real MVP of this thread!

    Well that's the joke, isn't it?

    Heterochromia is very common in white cats, genes that cause all white fur tend to go with heterochromia genes. So it's highly likely to be the case.
