Love this quote about naming a cat from the story, Coraline. I think it pretty well sums up any cats.

“What’s your name,’ Coraline asked the cat. ‘Look, I’m Coraline. Okay?’
‘Cats don’t have names,’ it said.
‘No?’ said Coraline.
‘No,’ said the cat. ‘Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.

    • Hi Judy
      That’s a tricky one. Sounds like a gorgeous combination. What about Honey? or Treacle? – both can be dark or caramel. My son has a black and tan Kelpie and she is called Alison or Allie. Let me know what you eventually choose.
