    It sounds like Junie B., as in the book series by Barbara Park, so that shows that you have an interesat in literature, but can still have fun. The P., though, stands for Pumpkin, because my kitten is a tortoiseshell with a lot of orange on it. It is so sweet, it reminds me of the sweets that my grandma makes, but I wanted an original name, so I thought, and came up with Junie P.! I hope you have fun with your pet!

  • Pixel
    Category: Cat - Gender: Unisex

    The cat name "Pixel" comes from several of science fiction author Robert Heinlein's novels, among them "The Cat Who Walks Through Walls." Pixel is an orange male kitten who has a way of showing up out of parts unknown even when he's on a spaceship. We used the name for our SASP--Siamese-American Shorthair Princess. She's a smart, spirited female tabby with black feet and a rusty meow. Pixel figured out how to clearly say "Mama" and thus became a favorite of mine many years ago. The name Pixel fits her cleverness and special nature.
