    Corbin derives from a Welsh word for coal bin ( at least I was told).
    And they tolerate you.

    So her name wasn't Joe Cocker then.

    An ownerless cat drifts about the neighbourhood, sometimes snoozing on our patio in a basket we leave out for the purpose. We have dubbed the cat "Wild Thing."

    Only two names should be allowed for pets: Archibald and Lassie.
    But if you really like your dog or cat (petting other animal is sick, and I don't mean pet in sense of pre-sex caressing all right), you'll call them "Buddy".
    Coz they will be your only buddies, unless you live in an imaginary world.,

    I once named a kitten Napoleon. He was brought to my apartment, and the first thing he did was stroll over to me, climb on my lap, and push off of my lap the cat that was already sitting there.

    I had a kitten born with deformities - twisted spine, club feet, never grew bigger than a mouse. She liked to sleep in my shoe.

    Name of Hobbit.

    A cat will think that no matter what you do. It'll also think you're food no matter what you do.

    Cats are evil on four legs.

    The cats here can open doors.

    They tell me to do it for them. Plus apparently they require water sometimes.
