Best cat name ...a Russian blue called Kilmouski.

Coo! Opportunity to lecture...

Lots of people think "felix" is latin for cat.

"Felix" is Latin for "lucky".

"Felis", often applied to cats, means thief.
Makes you wonder about "felis"itations doesn't it?

"Catulus" sounds cat-friendly too, it means "puppy".

Latin for "cat" is "cat". Though, I guess, cattus catulus would be a kitten.

The cat in the pic would be "felis cattus", the kind that are not so into newspapers and dissapproving looks at humans are "felis _silvestrus_ cattus".

Hence: Felix and Sylvester as cat names.
