Handsome Visitor

DSC_2649

Our handsome tuxedo friend paid us a visit this morning.  He's become a regular around here, and comes by our house several times a week. I've seen him on the neighbor's porch across the street, and next door too.  I've also seen him a couple of blocks from here too, so he seems to be making the rounds.

He usually howls to announce his arrival, and it always stirs the girls up.  They'll rush to the window to look for him, then sit with swishing tails as long as he's there. The girls used to growl at him, but they've moved past that stage now. They'll chatter a bit on occasion,  but mostly they just stare at each other through the window.

Though they'll never touch noses or become friends, his visits make their day a little more interesting, and I think they like that.

Now that he's kind of becoming a regular, I think we're going to have to give this guy a name. Any thoughts?

  3. what a handsome suitor he is!
    maybe call him Oscar, since he'll always be dressed for the event in his formal wear?

  6. Our last tux was Mr Moose. And he grew up to be a moose. Tux boys are SO handsome that it is hard to name them!! Mr Bates? Mr Carson? Pamuk? WAIT- are you sure it is a HE?

  7. Atticus. I just think this is a fine name for a cat.

  8. Romeo. There he is, looking up at the beautiful girl(s) on the balcony. He even used to sing to them! :-)

    1. For some reason, this idea is giving me the giggles.

  12. Well, his outfit is impeccable. Jack Spats? However, Laurie, you are definitely a master of names. I am sure you can come up with a good one.

    1. I was thinking Handsome Jack!

      Delete
    2. Handsome Jack is really, really good.

    3. I like "Handsome Jack", it reminds me of the Bobby Bare song, "Marie Laveau"

    1. That came to my mind as well (also showing my age).

  14. I was also going to say Romeo, but if that seems too obvious how about Cyrano? I believe there is a serenade below a window involved in that plot as well.

  15. Felix the Wonderful Cat!
    (though I do like the idea of Mr. Carson!)

  16. I like James Bond. The name Cedric also comes to mind. He's certainly a dapper gent!

    He's not homeless, is he? He appears to be clean and well fed, but I figured I'd ask--you can only tell so much from a video...

    1. He's very social and quite healthy. It appears he belongs to someone, but he doesn't wear an ID tag, so I don't know for sure.

      Delete
  17. pee-wee, cause he's a loner dottie... a rebel!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd have to go with Cyrano.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I find it amusing the girls have the reaction they do to him... I would think, with all the kittens you've fostered, they'd just shrug at yet another cat.

  20. I don't know why, but as soon as I saw him I thought "Mr. Belvedere!" He strikes me as a dapper English gentleman.

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about Mr. Handsome, since he is so handsome?

    Buddy (another tuxie boy), Tiger and Mr. Mistofelees's Mom

  22. Sebastian Furrmeister. (The last name is a play on an old family name.)

    ReplyDelete
  23. A suitor who arrives in his tuxedo must be a titled gentleman. Maybe His Lordship St. Fuzzlesworth? Baron von Tuxington?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the original name you used: "Mr. Tuxedo". For less formal times, you could call him Mr. Tux or Tuxxy. (Every cat in my life has always had multiple names, many -- but not all -- of them variations on the "official" name.)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I first thought, Jeeves in that butler tux but I see Romeo and like that. He is a 'playa' as the MTV crowd say.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd call him Rhett Butler, he looks like a bit of a scoundrel to me!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hello, Wylla and Charlene, and hello, Mr. Tuxedo! I am terrible with names, so I won't make a suggestion. I'll just say I like these pictures of Wylla and Bean looking at their visitor!

    ReplyDelete
  28. He's obviously Mr. Jones (T.S. Elliot). I mean, just look at those spats!

    ReplyDelete
  29. He is very handsome but I really like Mr Tuxedo, says it all.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lloyd Dobler- outside the window wooing women!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Romeow. He's clearly gazing up at Charlene and Wylla, wooing them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. OMG, he looks identical to our big handsome tuxedo boy! Whose name of course is...Tux! LOL, we get zero points for originality but it's fit him well since he was a tiny kitten. There are WAY more original names posted above!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Astaire (for Fred Astaire, always handsome in a cut-away and white tie) or Mr Grant (for oh so... Cary Grant)!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lord Plushbottom, "Plushy" for short.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Salvador.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sir Reginald Tuxington of Tacoma.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Perhaps Alfred Pennywhistle (from the DC Comic books)?

    ReplyDelete
  38. How about Watkins? He sort of sounds like little a door to door sales man coming around to peddle his wares..

    ReplyDelete
  39. "Tux" was my first thought, then "Frank" short for Frank Sinatra who brings tuxedos to mind. I am sure you'll come up with something fantastic to call him!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Clairment, c'est M. Hercule Poirot.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, girls, I have a weakness for tuxies too, so I totally understand. Guess it's good just to admire from afar.

  43. I like Mr. Tuxedo.
    Why reinvent the wheel?

  44. Tommy, after the visiting kitty in Breaking Cat News?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ambrose Periwinkle has come a'callin'!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'd call him Laurie's!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Cyrano, obviously
