  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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!

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


  7. 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. 😀

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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 ?

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

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. 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…..

  22. 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 !!!

  23. 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”.

  24. # 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 🙂

  25. 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.

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

  27. 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

  28. 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.

  29. 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


  30. 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.

  31. 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… could just call her your *Bestie*

  32. 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.

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

  34. 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

  35. 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


  36. 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

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  39. (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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

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

  43. 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.

  44. 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.

  45. 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!!”
