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


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.

  1. 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.

    • 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.
