Forrest sent along a photo of his kitty which has no name right now. But we can fix that.

  1. The comment area on this page is ONLY for contest entries. Other comments will be deleted.

    Do not use the reply button. Every entry should be a new comment.

  2. Saber tooth cat… the clear name for any cat with teeth the size of bananas is “Muffin”

  3. Tally … She likes to keep track of how many disagreeables and malcontents she’s taken care of.

  4. Fang seems like an appropriate name for this kitty. “Here kitty, kitty! Time for dinner Fang!”

  5. She needs a name that strikes fear in the hearts of everyone…
    How about Priscilla ? Prissy for short .

  6. Martin.

    Some context: I grew up listening to an old record my folks had of scary Halloween stories. It was a tradition every year. One of the stories involved a cat named Martin.

  7. That Kitty looks so scary you May need to throw that thing in the trash. Let’s call it Lucifer.

    That thing scared me. I was expecting to see a sweet baby kitten.

  8. well i cant imagine where one would find such beauty but i am a cat lover and I love my Dog Titan. He might get A bit jealous but I would name her TITANIA. thats a name no one has ever even writen before sounds like tie TA NEa

  9. In the true spirit of this frosty weather, Baby its Cold Outside and that kitty looks hungry! How about name her Suzanne because she looks like a man eater. Lol!

  10. What do you when you have unwanted pests(disagreeables
    and malcontents)? Why, you call the…..TERMIN8OR

  11. wait, wait wait!! In line with her predisposition for the taste of disagreeables
    and malcontents, you could just simply call her………..Goofy!!!!

    🙂

  12. Saber (sah-behr),

    Spanish translation: to know …… If I knew where the treasure was, I would be feliz.

  13. Orabella Overbite 😯
    Orabella’s first name is Italian meaning “Beautiful Gold”, and her last name is self explanatory!
    I figured by looking at it and thinking Chase related…it fit together nicely. 😀

  14. I believe, “Sable” would be a proper name. And if not – “Patience” would suffice.

  15. Snugglepuss … a Hanna Barbers “toon” that was featured with Yogi Bear back in the 60s. His famous line “Exit stage left” seems to coincide nicely with “the end is ever drawing nigh”. The character always wanted to be in the movies, just like f.

  16. After re reading the rules. every entry should be a separate post. here is one .
    “Sable”

  17. As a first time poster I am still getting used to this. The second thought for a name is,
    “Patience”.

  18. sometimes called , is known to be very “PURRSNIC-KITTY” and should only be approached if two people can keep a secret.

  19. Odonshea a word play on tooth, she, and a nod to Don Shea who wrote one of the first poetry generating programs in the early days of IBM…

  20. Fennus curmudgeonus sometimes called Fennus contrarianus, is known to be very “PURRSNIC-KITTY” and should only be approached if two people can keep a secret.

  21. 1) Sekhmet – the Egyptian solar deity and warrior goddess and also goddess of healing, depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare.

    2) Ammit – “devourer of the dead”, was a crocodile/lion/hippo demoness and goddess in ancient Egyptian religion. A funerary deity, her titles included “Devourer of the Dead”, “Eater of Hearts”, and “Great of Death”. Ammit lived near the scales of justice in Duat, the Egyptian underworld. In the Hall of Two Truths, Anubis weighed the heart of a person against the feather of Ma’at, the goddess of truth, which was depicted as an ostrich feather (the feather was often pictured in Ma’at’s headdress). If the heart was judged to be not pure, Ammit would devour it, and the person undergoing judgement was not allowed to continue their voyage towards Osiris and immortality. Once Ammit swallowed the heart, the soul was believed to become restless forever; this was called “to die a second time”. Ammit was also sometimes said to stand by a lake of fire. In some traditions, the unworthy hearts were cast into the fiery lake to be destroyed. Some scholars believe Ammit and the lake represent the same concept of destruction.

  22. My very first thought was that her name should be SABRE, but then I looked through all the comments and found that someone else already suggested that. It’s still my favorite, but how about DAGGER or THUNDERCAT ?

  23. I would like to submit these two names;
    Hades & Essa=Hadessa
    Crueladaville= Cruell~Lah~Duh~Ville
    Thanks, Jenny & f.

  24. The cat’s name is “Smiley”

    2nd choice

    The cat’s name is “Samson”

    Thanks

  25. How about ( IZZY) . IZZY here or IZZY there or IZZY sneaking up behind you somewhere ?someting to think about the next time you are in the bush.
    No 2 (EL GATO) meaning once bitten twice shy
    Clint

  26. I am a huge fan of the old TV series MASH…

    a rerun ran yesterday with a recurring actor that had an affinity for “Hot Lips’ in the later year episodes… his name was “Scully” remember him?

    There’s my entry… Scully.

  27. I would like to suggest Leo Cohen, or Chloe One. Both names are anagrams of the “Holocene” period, the beginning of which would be the end for these big cats.

  28. Felix (because Smilodon is a genus of the extinct machairodont subfamily of the felids.)

  29. Oh honey……….where have you been all my life? I’ll just name you “Cutie Patoothy”.

  30. BLAZION–the king of beasts with a mane of fire! This hot-blooded Yo-kai fills folks with fiery enthusiasm***
    Yo-kai watch #12, within 12′
    Yo-kai watch no.2, #024, double omega
    Blazion is a fiery lion yo-kai with a white scar on his forehead.
    Blazion is very bold.
    Blazion is one of Forrest’s usual choices whenever he needs a Brave Tribe Yo-kai.
    To the blaze within us.

  31. Gouyen

    Gouyen (c. 1857-1903) was a Warm Spring Apache woman. Her name, Gouyen, meant, “Wise One”. She was not only wise, but known for her heroism. She didn’t eat her malcontents, but scalped them. This woman didn’t mess around!

  32. Dusty LaBrea

    A lady has to have a full name. The fisrt name is after my own cat. The last name is after the tar pits where many of these specimens have been found.

  33. 1. Pussy G. Pankonin
    (An ode to the inventor of the staple remover)

    2. Madame Toothy LaBouche

    • 1) Eve
      2) Catrina
      What a beautiful preservation of a saber tooth tiger skull!
      Awesome!
      Thank you Dal

  34. Final answer: Toni the tiger, because She’s Grrreat!!! (Insert Tony the Tiger gesture) 🙂

  35. How about “FRIONA” ( as Forrest would say “we’ll call him FRIO for short” …. Frio is (cold) in Spanish …. it’s a cold animal , from a cold era…..

  36. Looks like a 7th Gen Smilodon that died out over 9,000 years ago . . .
    Also looks like a (name here) “Bone Head” . . .
    An with those Long teeth – – – Maybe She (name here) “Nibbles” her food a bit . . .
    Sooooo . . . . “Bone Head” in Spanish is – – – (#1 Name) “cabeza de hueso”
    or simply “Nibbles” in Latin is – – – (#2 Name) “sensim adpetentes” !!!
    An There Ya Have it !!!

  37. Boo Boo Kitty ….. close relative to Yogi Bear’s Boo Boo, but a kitty 🙂
    My 3rd oldest son threw his white kitty, Angel, up in the air and when she came down her claws scratched him deep on his cheek giving him a “boo boo” … He was 2 yrs old and from then on called her Boo Boo Kitty … Boo Boo Kitty is long gone … my son is in his early 40’s now. He is the one that introduced me to the Chase !!! This kitty of Fenn’s could inflict many serious “boo boo’s”.

  38. # 2 kitty name ….. Grizabella …..

    Grizabella ….. the old er, used to be, Glamour Cat from “CATS” the musical. She once led a glamorous life, and now is older and feeling used up and useless, struggling to be accepted back into the tribe of the Jellicle cats. The song she sings, “Memories”, is one of my favorites 🙂

  39. SHOKA

    Meaning =

    S is for strength, there when needed.

    H. is for honor, your most valuable possession.

    O is for original, one of a kind!

    K is for kid, the child within.

    A is for altruism, the unselfish you.

    Also to be clever, deep mind and idealistic, highly sensitive, and deeply emotional.

  40. My daughter chose Shira. I’m certainly glad we don’t have those kitty’s around anymore. 🙂
    Thank you Forrest for keeping us entertained!

  41. CALLIOPE or Kalliope

    Kalliope is an Ancient Greek female name, from Καλλιοπη, meaning“beautiful voice,” from the Greek elements καλλος (beauty) and οψ (voice). … Kalliope (Latin: Calliope) can always be shortened to K/Callie

  42. Here is my first name for her…
    Purrrsnickidy
    Second name…
    Savannah

    My son wants to call her Whiskers or Betsy.

    Friend

  43. Cloves – because Forrest said she likes to eat disagreeable and malcontents. In Once Upon A While he said of cloves “The taste has a bite that comes with a lasting sting.” sounds like a good fit to me.

  44. Looks like I broke the rules above with using the reply button, been a long day.
    So my entry looks like this…
    1. Purrsnickitty
    2. Savannah

    Friend

  45. G’joob.
    I was one of the first to post but decided to change the name I want to submit. Lyrics from a Beatles song.

  46. Wal, since Goofy ain’t here, I’ll throw this out in his name.

    Forrest, in light of your kitty’s years of silent devotion, and undoubtedly the comfort which she has brought to you…..you could just call her your *Bestie*

  47. 1st Scotty For Scott Conway the most disagreeable
    and malcontent person I know. lol
    2nd Invader after my new passion.

  48. As I have knowledge less then the one,I believe the young female shall have the name …Electra… and she will carry the word high above here so that all shall see there is greatness in all beings and that there will always be a flame in everyone’s
    Live. No matter how insignificant they may seem.

  49. For myself personally, I would name it Victoria Suares Oclinaria. My actual chosen name for Forrest’s cat would have been, Fluffy, but someone already posted that. So, how about Pest.

  50. I think this is a remarkable Kitty:)
    I love the name; SnowBite,
    Sincere Blessings,
    Heatherdawn
    HetrickBrowne

  51. I’m allergic to cats. I can’t imagine what I would do if I were being chased by one.

    I think I’ll call her Sniffles

  52. So Forrest by having this little contest you have inadvertenly, forced us to ressearch and learn
    about smilidon and I see alot of suggested names relating to that research.
    Clever…You love to make people think! Since so many of these have been found in the tar pits.
    Mine would be,
    La Brea

  53. Forrest is all about multiple entendres.. therefore I would name her CHOO CHOO ( CHEWIE for short ) and here’s why:

    1. ff is a singular fella.. like Han SOLO

    2. As a SOLO man, he Dances With Stars in the Millenium Falcon with Chewie.. at FTL wit.. and yes, as a name, Chewie is unisex imo

    3. Obviously, chew chew

    4. February 11.. 2/11.. it’s the last “inch” that is critical.. water boils at 212f.. milk boils at 212.3f
    2+1+2+3 = 8
    eight in Spanish is OCHO.. > CHOO > CHOO CHOO, one for each saber

    5. When confronted by DISagreeables & MALcontents (dismal?), CHOO CHOO puffs up, gets steaming angry, and trains focus on bouncing the fools.

    6. Regardless of dealings with the DISMALs, Chewie is quite a peaceful pal..
    2123 – 2019 = 104 = V

    7. Pg 104 conjures up CHOO CHOO

    🙂

  54. Wakonda

    Wakonda is the great Creator power of the Osage, Omaha, and Ponca tribes. Wakonda is an abstract, omnipresent creative force who is never personified in traditional Siouan legends, and in fact did not even have a gender before the introduction of English with its gender-specific pronouns

  55. 1. Sally Sabachewth

    A “Sally” is a strong and courageous female. She will leap out and have your back in any fight.

  56. 2. Jenny Jabatoof

    A “Jenny” is always there for you and smiles every second of her life.

    -Steve

  57. “Toofa” the show

    Sorry, I’m feeling a bit weird oh… ore/oar is it weir dough?

  58. By the power of Grayskull…”Battle Cat” will protect the Castle(Chest) from disagreeables and malcontents.

  59. 1. If she were a buffalo I’d call her blaze, but she’s not so I’ll name her Olive.

    2. I’m sure in her day she blended in well at night so my second choice is Gypsy.

  60. 2nd entry:
    Kissimmee, because when that “thang” comes after me, I can kissimmee ass goodbye! 🙂

  61. please change mine (TUSKA and MS FANG) to

    1. Tesuka (in memory of tesuque)
    2. Aprhodite (cause she’s pretty and mysterious)

  62. well, lets see…

    fossil, extinct species, archaeology, museum.

    im calling the kitty Copy Cat.
    i think.

  63. Sheeta was the name of the cat that came to Tarzan’s aid in one of Tarzan’s stories and since the chest was once called “Tarzan” I think Forrest should have a name that guards Tarzan, (the chest)……………. He should name his cat- Sheeta.

  64. FLASH!

    (You may not see her coming, but you’ll know she’s been there by the carnage left behind!!)

  65. Grace. based on S. gracilis which is one of 3 specis of Smilodon. I believe this is a skull of a Smilodon.

  66. Smiley Grace (S. gracilis)

    She opposes and eats the disagreeables and malcontents but gives grace to the peaceful

  67. (As-tute)

    Astute reminds me of a few friends that could well be defined by this word most of the time. But occasionally they can be problematic and I think if this word a little different. For a cat I believe this befitting.
    Ooh!!! By the way I’am just a jokester.
    Have cats. My girls call me the cat whisper. True story. I hope the kitty gets a great name.

  68. 1: Bob the Cat (Short for Robert the Cat)

    Google: Sabre-toothed cats weren’t tigers, or even close relatives. That honour goes to the modern North American wildcats, such as the puma and bobcat.

  69. Willispet
    Pronounced Willie’s pet since we know they’re going to become best friends. The Willis are the vengeful spirits in Giselle, though they’re not quite as long in the tooth as Forrest’s kitty.

  70. 1. Gute Felinx (a mash-up of Good, Felix, and “gut feeling”)
    2. Mic-Mic (from TTOTC)
    Geoff
    “Have flashlight, will travel”

  71. Baby Puss
    Baby Puss is the Flintstones’ pet saber-toothed cat, which is rarely seen in the actual series, but is always seen throwing Fred out of the house during the end credits, causing Ferd to pound repeatedly on the front door and yell “Wilma!”, waking the whole neighborhood in the process.

  72. Run!

    Because that is what the cat would have heard everyone say when it was alive 🙂

  73. Maybe he could just call it “Pussy Galore” from the James Bond movie Goldfinger 🙂

  74. How about Eureka, which is the name of Dorothy Gale’s cat in “Dorothy And The Wizard In Oz”. Eureka is cunning and tricksy, but has a good heart.

  75. AGAPE Can mean a wide open mouth—-or if AGAPE’ (spelled the same but emphasis on the last letter) it means the Love of God. So you could say literally “for the Love of God that thing has a big mouth!!”

  76. 1. Grendel- fanged monster that attacked Danish King Rothgar and is killed by Beowulf
    2. Mother Grendel- tried to avenge son’s death and is also killed by Beowulf
    Beowulf- Fenn alligator

  77. (I hope I am not imposing myself into a closed group, and I apologize, if I am.)

    Greetings from the land of igloos, moose(s?) (meese?), beavers, polar bears, hockey, and beer!

    Now THIS is a contest that is near and dear to my heart! My sweet Cornish Rex boy, Bane, that I lost to congenital heart failure, in February, of 2014, had fangs that stuck out, like a saber-toothed tiger. He was all black, so I thought of him as my little vampire cat (even though he would never bite anyone).

    Those teeth saved his life, when a chemical accident, at the cattery, caused the death of some other animals. His teeth kept his mouth slightly open, which enabled him to breathe through his mouth, even when sleeping, when his nasal passages got completely swollen shut.

    I am incredibly lucky, to have had him in my life, and even luckier that I now have two of his great-great granddaughters, to watch over and snuggle me. 🙂

    Anyhow, I am a huge fan of word play that comes full circle, so to speak, so I have but one entry:

    I feel that a fitting flag, for Forrest’s fanged feline friend, is “Ratelen” – pronounced “rat-uh-lin” (with a bit of a rolling r, from the back of the mouth, kind of like a growling r).

    The reasoning behind my choice:
    * Ratelen is the (Middle Dutch) origin of the word rattle and means “to rattle”
    * Kitty’s canines are very prominently, and rather threateningly, displayed, much like a flamboyant display of power as an implied threat, or saber-rattling!
    * A purr is a rattling kind of noise.

    Cheers,
    Ms. Elf Brown

  78. My daughter made a spelling “error” on her math homework that inspired this one. (Her teacher calls it an error. I call it simply inspired;)

    Nighn Lives

  79. On behalf of my toddler, second submission–
    Poinky.
    Definition–anything that is both pointy and sharp.
    Use by my toddler in a sentence– I stepped on a very poinky Emmet lego.
    When you anagram the word, several interesting permutations.

  80. Kati the Knifi

    Childhood favorite was Katie the Kitten who at her adventures end fell asleep in a mitt with a baseball and cap nearby. I was a good little Kitty but somehow I grew to a knife sharp cat. Katie the Knife was part of me during the chase. But I returned to my favorite book and Katie is now the Kitten – but the picture is the me with the sharp teeth!

  81. I’m submitting thus for Mark ( from New Zealand) he thinks a good name would be “Laxative “

  82. I went back to read all the great entries and discovered that someone else had chosen my names, so I hope it’s ok to give 2 new choices.
    1) Harpoon Hannah
    2)Ms. Pearly White.

  83. Seems to me this kitty needs to brush those huge teeth. therefore I think “CREST” is a fitting name.

    • The obvious hidden
      C the Rest
      It doesn’t end here, if you sink your teeth in the truth.
      You will find the Crest that leads to the other side.

  84. Valdis

    Norse name. Goddess of those slain in battle. Seems appropriate to me.

    Regards to all.

  85. # 2 I had a black cat one time, his mane was Jack. Great cat!!!

    I think Forrest will agree that his cat should be named;

    “Smoke”.

    Cats are like that…..

  86. Scrapper, because anything left after a run-in with her would be a good candidate for the scrapyards!

  87. My second submission is:
    Sasha [Fierce]
    pet name for the name/s – Alexander / Alexandra

  88. “Toho” from the Hunting Kachina in the Native American Pueblo religious beliefs. (Technically a mountain lion, but I think it is still a good fit).

  89. The go-to Egyptian female name is CLEOPATRA. The name is actually Greek for “Praise to my FATHER” and we all know ff praised his.

  90. Booty
    First thought was “boots” for those who have put boots on the ground but looks like someone has something similar. Then it made me think of skull and bones, Geronimo’s skull, the Jolly Roger and pirate booty. Forest has the coolest stuff. Bootyful stuff.

  91. I think the kitty should be named after my hero…Michael Bennett. He eats malcontents and disagreeables too.

  92. Well it gives away the farm, but the name has to be …”PETACA”. ……Of course my second choice would be “SKULLY” , but I’ll stick with PETACA. y?????

  93. I can nary think of a biter name than;

    THOMAS

    A Sage Once adviced to avoid extracting glaws at all cost whence Upon
    searching for treasure one might encounter A Wild beast.

  94. What if it’s of the Wild Beasts HOWL into the Vastness for its Recognition or its Savior that One may Encounter……………. P Thomas

  95. Fang

    My neighbors had a big fluffy orange tabby cat that would try to attack you through the windows. Her name was Fang. She was a beautiful but deadly beast.

  96. Bella, after his friend Bella Abzug, who was about the same age as this kitty, and had a similar disposition.

  97. #2) Minnie Hollow Wood Lakota woman who earned the right to wear a warbonnet because of her valor in combat against the U.S. Calvary at the Battle of Little Big Horn.

  98. Toothless. Because she really is a sweetheart deep inside, even after eating those malcontents. 😉

  99. Based on Mr. Fenn’s description, I’d like to recommend the name “Maria”. There’s a river in Montana known as Maria’s River. But the Indian’s called it “The River That Scolds All Others”. 🙂

  100. Ok so this is a bit of what I thought when I saw the picture .

    My submission for a name:

    FURGONE

    But not furgotten.

  101. Takoda – Native American for “friend to everyone”

    Makkapitew – Native America for ” he has large teeth”

  102. #2 “Liberty”…the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views

  103. My two choices would be ..

    1.Ashia – named after my favorite Cougar I knew from volunteering at my local zoo as a young adult.

    2.Kali after the goddess of kindness and wrath.

  104. Within Her. Imagine her within magnificent frailed lands. Her charge of glory deepened tribal bands. She ran among days with reverent hands. Her majesty burdened these earthen sands. Imagine within her magnificent frailed lands.

  105. Bobbie

    Willie’s (Nelson) sister.

    I thought f’s dog was Tesuque, but now I see it’s Willie.

    or maybe Wonka.

  106. Kalima,…..or Kali Ma,…….She’ll rip your heart out with those jaws and spit you out. Watch out Indiana Jones…Kali Ma!

  107. Thank you Forrest and Dal. Your efforts are really appreciated, even though this bonehead almost missed the contest deadline. Just studying too hard for the upcoming FennGlish finals in May or June.

    Since Forrest ‘prayed for D’s’ I submit a pair for consideration.

    Dozer – cat napping, get it? I love cats because they have 9 lives, but it looks like the saber tooth’s took it a little to far and went the way of the T-rex.

    Dos – Spanish for number 2. Because that’s what you’d become if she caught you.

    Pinatubocharlie

  108. Apologies if these are duplicated entries from me… I entered them shortly after the start of the contest but I cannot find them now…
    1. Putty Tat
    2. Zoophagous – which means ‘meat eater’… you could call her ‘Zoof’ to shorten

  109. Hi everyone! A lot of great names!
    My first name is Winda, which means ‘chases for food’
    Nickname Winnie ( Willie and Winnie 🙂 )

  110. SCAR-A (possible name)
    This saber-tooth lion (call him tiger if you want), has slept peacefully in a peaceful place for a long time. If SCAR-A ever awakened … with his dual incisor sabers, he would challenge and duel all rivals. A new meaning for a ‘sabre dance’?

    I thought of connections: 1-Scar in The Lion King; 2-Scar on the Ortiz Mountains (scarred due to much digging for gold); 3-Medicine Rock (to me, its profile (the sunset view) looks (somewhat) like the Sphinx/lion – only opposite); 4-Yeats’ poem, The Second Coming; 5-something someone posted.
    Scar (Ortiz) and Medicine Rock are as two lions … opposite to, but facing, each other.
    PS- I did think of SCAR-Y … but liked SCAR-A!

  111. I would call him Jack, but you can call him anything you want, just don’t call him late for dinner.

  112. 2nd suggestion: Amarantha, from Amaranth. In legend, amaranth is an imaginary flower that never fades or dies. I would call her Mara for short.

  113. Came upon this contest almost a week ago and my first idea was “Meow Wolf”, charming, right? LOL. But I thought I ought to wait and see if anything else came to mind, besides that name has probably been taken. Of course Alowishus Devadander Abercrombie is a fine name, but not so good if your into the whole brevity thing.
    Anyway, I got to using my imagination, and found myself in that cats shoes (er, paws) and thinking about its final hunt. The scene at the the kill was probably a nightmare. Between the elements(hot or cold) the constant buzz of insect swarms, the need to be clear on the habits and methods of local scavengers – and wary of the attention they called to largwer predators -must’ve been a destraction to the hunting and keeping of its prey. The massive Teratorns swooping and the two legged hunters walking out of the rising sun with their feisty sticks and stones, may have confused its primal brain , to the point that the reasonable idea – to just leave, didn’t cross it’s mind till it was almost too late. Well, it’s just a bonehead like me now. Maybe it starved to death trying to make it back to it’s den in the mountains, or was taken by a larger predator.
    Golly, I can go on…The name! “DOCENTA”? Guardian and Guide of the Gallery of Time and Treasures. Thats got a nice ring to it, yes?. If it seems more likely that it died fat and happy on the carcass of a migrating pachyderm, I suggest “El Fupacabra”.
    Sure wood be nice to win that book, see if I can get some new interpstations, find that treasure and get my bank balance back up to zero! LOL! Thanks for the opportunity, sincerely, El Perro
