Hey guys,

So today’s question was what are my favourite names. Since there are so many beautiful names in the world I was unable to pick. Instead I decided to recite a famous poem about names.

Choosing their names

Our old cat had kittens three –

What do you think their names should be?

One is tabby, with emerald eyes

And a tail thats long and slender

And into a temper she quickly flies

If you ever by chance offend her:

I think we should call her this –

I think we should call her that –

Now don’t you think that Pepperpot 

Is a nice name for a cat?

One is black, with a frill of white,

And her feet are all white fur, too;

If you stroke her she carries her tail upright

And quickly begins to purr, too!

I think we should call her this –

I think we should call her that –

Now don’t you think that Sootikin

Is a nice name for a cat?

One is tortoise shell, yellow and black

With plenty of white about him;

If you tease him, at once he sets up his back

He’s a quarrelsome one ne’er doubt him

I think we should call him this –

I think we should call him that –

Now don’t you think that Scratchaway

Is a nice name for a cat?

Our old cat has kittens three

And I fancy these their names will be;

Pepperpot, Sootikin, Scratchaway – there!

Were ever kittens with these to compare?

And we call the old mother –

Now what do you think?
