Default Name this cat.

Well, last Sunday, I heard a pathetic little crying in the rafters of the barn. After much coaxing, I found a wee kitty, barely weaned, that I suppose some cowardly soul dropped off. She seemed fine, but after a couple of days was obviously sick.

The vet quickly determined that she had something called a "warble" which is when a bot fly lays eggs in the skin, and a larve develops. In this little kitty, it was in her neck, so as the larve grew and developed its husk, she was really suffering. The vet had to give her inhalant anesthesia and cut it out, then put her on antibiotics. It was touch and go for a while, as she's just so tiny...probably around 4-5 weeks old.

Anyway, this kitten's a fighter and within 48 hours of treatment, she was up and about, scampering and pouncing. She's got quite a personality. Unusual markings, too, which I discovered meant she was a "torby", so has calico colors with tabby markings. Very pretty.

So, bottom line, she's doing great and we've decided that it's time to name her. Our last kitty was named after our other big hobby, motorcycling, so it's time for my homebrewing to have a mascot. We need some naming ideas for an affectionate, personable kitty that relate to homebrewing.



(sorry for the pic quality. Low light conditions.)

Koa. She reminds me of koa. It's not brewing-related, but it just popped into my head.

Brewing-related second suggestion: Blackentan.

Okay, guys, I'm nixing "Fuggles". It just sounds too much like a titty bar.

Plus, Urban Dictionary says that fuggles is slang for some obscure sexual practice involving a bowling ball and vegetable oil.

Or maybe I just made that up. But now you gotta go look, doncha?

What about Wort?

I usually let their personailty dictate the name. Altho I think Rafter is pretty good!
