    Tailless doesn't mean Manx cross, just a mutation. He sure is cute. Let him name himself.

    He's cute! He looks like a Simon, but it's so hard to name an animal without getting to know them first.

    Very cute!

    The great TB breeder Colonel Bradley named all of his horses starting with B, and one of his favorites was Brevity. He was favorite for the 1936 Kentucky Derby but was clobbered and knocked to his knees at the start.

    Just struck me that that would be a cute name from the horse world for a tailless cat.

    I'm with the let him name himself vote.
    Odd how that happens. The name just keeps popping in your mind until we realize that that's his/her name.
    Beautiful kitty.

    Super handsome!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    He looks like an Oscar to me! Call him Oscar Blues after the brewery here in Colorado

    After three days of trying to name the little boy that adopted me last month he named himself Mayhem.

    No suggestions on a name, but just want to give cheers for Meezer crosses - as I type one-handed b/c one of my own is hogging lap and arm!

    OMG, he's beautiful! Siamese kittehs are wonderful-- they're super affectionate and playful. Does he have the Meezer "voice"?

    I vote for letting him name himself, too.

    Have fun with your new baby boy!
