    I recall reading somewhere that cat's names should end in ee. Something about the tone. I'm sure she'd love Faty

    Actually though Tubbs/ Tubby seems to be working. I think she knows

    why not just call her Madame (french pronunciation). as in, Madame Bovary. finicky and goes exactly where she pleases, when she pleases?

    xiao = see-ah-ou. (string it together in one sound. if your British lord(i)ness is able to.)
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    Ah American pronunciation of Z. Gotcha.

    The sound of Chinese languages is not that unfamiliar to me, just the spelling. Oh and possibly the fact that I remember odd singular words but have no idea what they mean

    Well u've had some really good sugestions, so i'll put my 2p in as well............how about Mooky, or you could spell it mookie. Rofl

    But she looks like a sweet cat, so how about Sweetie, ends in the ee sound, and u could always go for Sweetie-Pie, seeing as she loves food so much.

    But better still, buy a Greman shepard and yr never have to see the cat again, let alone worry about naming it.
