Meet my new guy! He is a little less than a year old and I adopted him about 2 weeks ago. He is a sweet tabby guy with buff colored fur and I can just not settle on a name for him.

The grey kitty is his new brother, my 3ish year old cat Oscar. He is quite shy and a bit skittish, but he has decided that I am an acceptable human and he purrs all the time when I pet him. He is also very energetic, even more so than I expected.

I tend to go with human names for pets and here a few I've considered:
- Arthur
- Ziggy
- Finn
- Charlie
- Teddy
- Alfie
- Miles

But I don't know... Nothing seems right. I also considered Felix, because a pair of Oscar and Felix would be adorable, but it just doesn't fit.

Anyone have ideas?

Tony.

Oscar is the award for movies. Tony is the award for Broadway.

He looks like a sweetie! They are cute together.

Maybe Oliver? That's a theater award.

It always takes me a while to name my cats, and even then I can get it wrong. Eventually, the name morphs into something that matches the cat's personality. (Mr. Beauregard Feathertoes became Beau, finally Boo-Boo . . . which suits him perfectly. My husband calls him Boop de Loop sometimes.)

So the final choice is: Ziggy

I spent the last week or so trying out names and it is the one that stuck. I also realized the other day that he has a little kink in his tail (or a little zig-zag) and that sealed the deal. He is such a sweet guy and I'm just thrilled that I adopted him.

A volunteer at the place I adopted him from recommended him to me, and I really lucked out. He is very nervous around people and was terrified when I first met him, and I'm pretty sure that made it difficult for him to be adopted. He only took a day to warm up to me and I can see his confidence growing every day.
