    So we got a new rescue kitten. He's a real find. Pure black Maine Coon mix except for white tufts in his ears. The Warden wants to name him Mr. Binx (the cat from Hocus Pocus). I, on the other hand, being much less formulaic, want to name him Salem (the cat from Sabrina The Teenage Witch). 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg

    Mr. Binx is somewhat less formulaic than Salem (said by someone who had an all-black shorthair named Salem 20 years ago).

    I actually came up with Mr. Binx myself, but the vet says he's gonna be huge, and planning ahead, I figure Salem would be more fitting for an extra large long haired black cat. It's probably gonna be Binx though.

    cool! I didn't know Maine coons came in a black variety. But yeah if it has that Maine coon size genes it will be a big cat. Side note when I read "rescue kitten" I visualized a "first responder" kitten which would be totally awesome! I would appreciate a kitten whenever I take an ambulance ride. :yes:

    Salem didn't have long hair, which is why my daughters named ours after him.

    Yeah, but it just seems more majestic than Mr. Binx.

    How about Nero? Very noble sounding (he was an emperor of course) the cat is a male, it's Italian for black, and not offensive if you pronounce the "e" a little like the word "hay" versus "bee". Regardless it's a cute kitten but I bet when he grows up he'll really be an elegant looking cat.

    Awww, Jeez, he's a dead ringer for my old, late pal Nimitz.

    Give it a week or two and see how his personality unfolds. His naming will then be as clear as day.

    Black cats are the best!

    There might be truth to that! Everyone I know has had nothing but positive experiences with black cats. :yes:
    Okay, except Jimmy (Lefty) Davidson from down the street when I was a kid, but everyone gets dealt a fast fuse every now and then, right? :shrug:

    Doctor Kissyboo! Okay that's one of my cat's nicknames, but my cat won't mind if you use it. Plus my cat isn't a real doctor. :(

    [Looks. Dammit. Green Room]: The N-word. Actually the N-word or the actual N-word. It can be a tribute to the dambusters dog. You can call him "Nigerian" when polite company is over.
