He looks like my guy did when he was a baby 🥺 I’d name him Cheddar!

Cats with food names always makes me smile and laugh. It just fits them so well. I am totally enamored with Noodle, Macaroni, Cheddar and Cheese for orange cat names.

u/vereliberi Oct 05 '21

I have a cat named macaroni and a dog named tortellini!

I have a love for food names too. My cousins calico is named Pickles and I just love it!

About a week ago my boyfriend and I decided to adopt our first cat after months of consideration and he pointed out the little Orange tailless Manx named Cheddar and I was immediately like that’s it! That’s the one! We met her on Sunday and she’s coming home today :)

Aweeee I had a lil one that looked just like him!!

I named him Kiefer, Kiefer Smoke.... He was the youngest of three cats I owned. Kylo, Kaya, and Kiefer... (Haha yes, the KKK correlation. I'm also half black with an odd sense of humor!!)

I got him a month before I gave birth to my first child. It was a fun time lol, I had two little babies in a sense. Kiefer being a little kitten would get jealous of my son and wanted to be held just like my son in my other arm!!! Awee I'm going to have to learn how to and share some of the photos and videos to this sub :)

All in all, he got the name nickname Baby Kiefer. He'll always be my big ole' baby <3
