Who Names Those Shelter Animals?

By Ellery Adams

What's in a name?

T.S. Elliot would tell you the naming of cats is a difficult matter. And when you work at an animal shelter like my friend Lynda Turpin does in sunny California, it can become tough to come up with wonderful new names on a weekly basis.

When she mentioned this challenge to me a few weeks ago on Facebook, I proposed asking you all for a list of some of your favorite pet names.




What's in it for you? How about a gorgeous cat key chain from the ASPCA for three lucky winners? I love to support this organization and it will help Lynda out too. And keep Lynda in your prayers, she lost her kitty Fifi on Wednesday and despite her sorrow, will march

into the shelter today to love and care for more precious animals.
