Hello all,

I haven't been on much lately, I've been really busy with school and prepping for culinary school (in three semesters I'll be there) and haven't had the time to spare. This morning, as I stumbled into the living room on my desperate search for coffee, my stepmother exclaimed some news I am very excited to share.

In one month, I will be receiving a Manx kitten. Those of you who aren't aware, Manx cats do not have tails. Kind of like this:

I'm starting to think of names for the kitten and would love something culinary related. Anything from culinary terms, like Julienne, to liqueurs such as Amaretto, I'm just searching for ideas. I'm not sure if it's a male or female, so I would like your ideas for both. I need some help in this, and with you guys, I know that the sky is the limit.

Thank you very much for your creative ideas, Gummy Bear

With all those claws and teeth, cuts and knives are my first choice. Even some brand name might be fun.

Oh come on. Everyone needs to have a Sabatier Tiger running amok in the house.

Or a Baron Von Wusthof. Haven't you ever seen a cat get their Henkels up?

How about Ramsey?
As a tribute to Gordon Ramsay (food connection!) It is also the name of the capital of the Isle of Man, and every citizen is known as a manxman!

That was just a cat I found online to show the tailless cat, I'm not sure what the little guy/gal looks like yet.

how about a technical name for the tail of a fish or tail of beef filet.....that way (s)he'll have a tail name.:p

It's hard to name a kitty without knowing it's personality. funny story, we adopted a cat from Soulard Farmer's Market when my sons were 6, 8 & 13 years old....so they named black kitty "Mel" after Mel Brooks....my middle son adored this cat and insisted that Mel was a male until Mel actually gave birth to part persian babies. Mel's pregnant belly was dragging the ground and he still insisted she was a he. Mel, became Melamina soon after the babies arrived.

I had a female orange tabby once that seemed mostly manx (body shape). The kids named it Bunny because she kind of reminded them of a rabbit. Maybe something along the lines of a rabbit?

Haha, but seriously the best thing to do is to sit down with your favorite cookbook and underline the words that you like. I'd go for an Italian cookbook or a french sauce book.

Is it kind for me to say that I think it is cruel to keep breeding from those tail-less cats?

Most of the specialty breed dog and cat have some sort of deformity/genetic malfunction. And there are those who say its cruel.

I had a (pretty wild) cat who was part manx. Her kittens had all kinds of weird tails. One had a half-length tail that was bent 90 degrees in the middle. None of them seemed to have any genetic weakness, but then again, they were mixed breed.

My favorite cat I've had was the orange tabby manx I mentioned earlier, She had 3 distinct meows, one of which was a lot like a dog bark.

I've got a little kitty named Roux :lips: (the screen name came before the cat).
