Favorite cat ever... was at a pet store chain. She had been living there for quite some time waiting for someone who wanted her "even though she was black with a small white patch" which kinda ticked me off and sealed the deal.
We adopted "patch" the next day... early Christmas present from us and Santa. When we adopted her, her name was changed to Pumpkin Patch.
We have 3 children, all Halloween time babies so we tend to celebrate pretty big... she had to have a cool black cat name.
Now I just found a pure black kitten outside probably dropped off... thinking of velvet... but that's because my name is Lacey... and I tend to name pets after fabrics... silky... satin... leather. Etc. Maybe velvety sin or moonshine. Who knows.... hope this helped.
