I thought this would be a fun thread! Did you know your feline(s) friends after movie stars? Or even musicians? Or just plain actresses or actor?

Part of the reason I picked Punky as a name was because I had a pretty big childhood crush on Punky Brewster.

Well.....does musical theatre count??? The entire tribe are named after characters from the musical 'Cats' (the West End version, not broadway..broadway left out the kitten Etcetera) The ones from the shelter got to keep their 'pound names', and had a jellicle name added on, like Mischief Mistoffolees...

Manitu22, I think you're thinking of Diff'rent Strokes. Both shows did feature short black boys with physical ailments that stunted their growth, but Webster was an only child adopted by George and Ma'am, while Willis and Arnold were adopted by Mr. Drummond.
