  1. I’m very sorry about your sister Kat. The very best names are ones that have personal meaning as yours does. Thank you for posting your comment.

  2. I named my tuxedo cat Petunia because my oldest sister sarcastically called people Petunia. Sadly, we lost my sister in 2016 but her memory lives on in my cat’s name. My cat has a very beautiful face so Petunia fits.
