One of my favourite quotes is by T.S. Eliot, who said that all cats should have three names – an everyday name, an official name, and a third name ‘which only the cat knows and does not tell’

My cats have always kind of named themselves. Fluffy was originally named Murphy, which was a cool name. But it did not suit him. The silly name Fluffy attached itself to him somehow and never left. It described his appearance and his nature perfectly. Ziggy was Eric when I rescued him, just after David Bowie died, and it seemed a better fit than Eric. He really knew his name and would come running when you called him. Both Ziggy and Fluffy came to me as tiny kittens, but Mollie, who came to us as an adult, kept her name because it was part of her by then.
