Cuteness overload - black and white kittens! How to decide on a name?

I speak from experience. Our cat was called Tom. Tom was a much loved and adored kitty but the name Tom, well it just didn’t scale great heights.  As a result he was called various other things over the years, Mr Kitty, Thomas, Tommy, Mt T and various other totally non related Tom names. 

Mr T is sadly no longer with us and really in the end, the name doesn’t matter but if you have the choice it is good to at least have a think about it.  

Reading through names is a quick scan.  As often with things in life, something will pop out at you as being - just right.

We hope you find ​the just right name for your black and white cat
