    Default Bought A One Eyed Cat At Hardware Store!!! UPDATE ~ Jingles Needed!

    I had to make two trips to the hardware store over the weekend and noticed an adorable male cat with one eye for adoption. He completely stole my heart and I decided to call and see if he was an indoor or outdoor kitty since I am at my limit for cats in the house. Turns out he would be better suited for the barn

    Meet my new 2 year old neutered male one eyed kitty

    I need name suggestions. The rescue who only had him since he was found with a severe eye injury named him Captain but it really doesn't fit. My daughter wants to call him Steve but that isn't right either Any suggestions>

    Cannot view pictures (will not give cc# to shutterfly since I won't order pictures). Please give details of color/markings.

    Regardless. One eyed cat names:

    You're right, he is adorable, and you are adorable for taking him home.

    Before I even saw the photo I was thinking Lefty. Which is a family joke of ours regarding one-eyed pets. Which maybe says more about our family than I'd like to admit...

    Awww! He's too pretty to just draw attention to his eye injury and name him for that. I'll have to think about it.... thanks for giving him a good home!

    Let me give a few more details. The pictures don't show but he is very long and lanky like a teenager. He is a HUGE talker and will even say "mama". He absolutely loves catnip and goes crazy for it. He is currently locked in my tackroom for a few days but he is so friendly that it won't take long to let him out.

    He is such an awesome kitty

    How about Columbo, after the late one-eyed actor Peter Falk?

    Wasn't Captain Bligh a one eyed pirate?

    Or name him after the "Tool time" guy since you got him from a hardware store?

    Or since he's lanky...Slim Shady?

    I'm with your daughter. I like Steve. I think it suits him.

    He's quite the handsome fellow.

    Blinky?

    2-D (vs 3-D).

    Looks like a nice cat, good for you not passing him up.

    I'm terrible with names, but congratulations! He looks like a real sweetie. Give him a pat for me

    I think someone mentioned Wink on here and I think that's cute. I knew a 3 legged cat that was named Pogo!
