She Can’t Keep Her Tongue in and Needs a Name


“I adopted this lil lady a few days ago. Due to a gum disease, she has no teeth and can’t keep her tongue in. Help me name her,” said kitty’s dad.

“She can pull (the tongue) back in but only for short periods of time. Anytime she’s running around she pulls it back in but as soon as she relaxes it falls back out.”

    How about Tootsie?

    Also how does she eat food?

  2. Melissa says:

    What a precious girl!
    You could call her Nan, Boo, or BooBoo, as in Nanny-nanny-boo-boo (because of her cute little tongue!)
    But I think sweetie Pie would fit her well, too. She’s beautiful and I’m so happy she has a forever home! Can’t wait to hear what name you choose!

  3. Patricia Brown says:

    Butterscotch!
    I love gingers, my 3 boys are so sweet and loving, she will be a darling friend too.

  4. Connor says:

    You could name her Sassy, since that tongue makes her look like she`s got quite a bit of sass :P

  5. Elaine says:

    Awww, she looks like my Punkin! Well, except Punkin doesn’t stick her tongue out. =) She’s adorable!! I think you should name her ‘Raspberries’ because that’s what it looks like she’s giving you.

  6. Moheem says:

    Hahaha cute… how about Spit or Teaser :P hehe

  9. Kirby's_Mom says:

    Miss Bessie Kissy-face!

  10. Lili says:

    How about Rasberry? You know, like when you stick your tongue out at someone. =)

  11. Jen says:

    Raspberry, since it looks like she’s giving a permanent one.

  12. laura b says:

    You should call her Gene after Gene Simmons from Kiss who always sticks his tongue out ;)

  13. Toby says:

    Peanut butter cup

  14. ursulina says:

    pinky, for her pink tongue

  15. Cheryl says:

    Honey
    Sweetie Pie
    Sister Golden Hair
    Caramel
    Cutie Pie

    She’s sooooo cute.

  16. Kitty says:

    I’d call her Raspberry, it looks like whats she’s doing!

  17. Andrea James says:

    What about Lollipop :-)

  18. Roseann says:

    Name her Razzie (short for Raspberries)!!! She’s cute. Does she have problems eating and drinking? I hope not. Enjoy her!

  19. Brigitte says:

    I say Raspberry Too

  20. Lisa says:

    Razzamatazz! She is gorgeous!!!

  21. Shannon says:

    How about Lilly!

  22. cami says:

    OMG…so adorable she is!!!!
    I like Razzie (Raspberry) or
    Lolly (Lollipop)

  23. Debbie says:

    Edith Ann. It’s a character of a little girl Lily Tomlin used to do on Laugh-in. She ended every story with “And that’s the truth.” Then she’d blow raspberries.

    • Lori R. says:

      You read my mind! But I couldn’t remember Lily Tomlin’s name in the skit. I see, too, that someone else suggested “Lily” for the same reason. I have a rat named Lily (her mama’s name was Tulip and her sister’s name is Iris). But I think that “Edith Ann” is very appropo!

  24. Haruko says:

    I would name her “Pero.”
    Pero means lick in Japanese. It’s a very cute word.
    And it also means ‘but’ in Spanish…in the way kids nowadays use “like…like…like”
    Overall, it’s a fun word that sounds cute Pero Pero Pero!

  25. carmela says:

    she is so cute just like that, i would call her Bella, which means beautiful in Italian!!!!

  26. Leila Bali says:

    What a cute kitty!!!!!!
    I call her Elthen which means the tongue in arabic….

  27. Vikki says:

    She is beautiful! And adorable! Ginger is a pretty name , and Luna ( Goddess of the Moon ) is also a pretty name. Pretty name pretty kitty.

    • Rebecca says:

      I agree the name of Ginger was was I called my ginger kitty eons ago.
      I really like Razzie short for Raspberry, which is a very popular choice for your wee honey. What a love. Enjoy her.

  28. Shelly Lyon says:

    She is darling. Glad she has her forever home! Let us know what you decide. I really like Haruko’s idea of Pero:)

  29. AerieTigre says:

    Raspberry!

  30. Adorable! GummyBear would be appropriate!

  31. Mara says:

    What a pretty kitty. May I suggest you call her Lily… after Lily Tomlin from Laugh-In the comedy show from the 60′s. She was always blowing raspberries at the end of her skit.

  32. Debbie says:

    I see someone else thought of my idea for a name already…Raspberry…for the same reason. I thought he could be called Berry for short, then I read he’s a she, so she could be called Raz for short. She is adorable!!

  33. C says:

    She’s a pretty girl. I was thinking, how about “Slurp”? I hope that little tongue doesn’t get too dried out!!

  34. Violet says:

    I think that “Raspberry” is a great idea.

  35. evilTcat says:

    Why not just call her Lady, since she looks like a little lady. (It could be a sarcastic name too)

  36. Lisa says:

    I like C’s suggestion of Slurp…
    Maybe Lollipop, or Genie

  37. virginia says:

    Someone said, “Frenchie”. Slurp is cute too! How about Flo!

  38. I say you call her tipsy since the tip of her tongue sticks out. She is adorable by the way.

  39. Teeni says:

    Of the ones already mentioned, I like Raspberry, Spit and Pinky. I’d like to add Emmy (Emerald for her eyes) and Dribble! :) She is beautiful and I’m glad you didn’t let her inability to keep her tongue in her mouth stop you from giving her a home.

  40. Sarah says:

    How about Mickie J., after Mick Jagger?

  41. Brandon says:

    “Lickety Split”

  42. DONNA says:

    JUST PLAIN “BEAUTY”-WHICH SHE REALLY IS!!!

  43. Nana says:

    She is soooo cute!!! I would call her Ginger!

  44. Sylvia Chen says:

    BEST NAME FOR HER — “NAUGHTY”

  45. Donna says:

    Puddy Tat

  46. Terry says:

    Somebody else suggested Edith Ann…I love that! Edith Ann gets my vote :-)

  47. Monika says:

    She’s so cute. I’m thinking about that famous photography and name her Einstein.

  48. Jennifer Stuart says:

    Tongue or no tongue, she looks like a Cleopatra.

  49. Rene S says:

    Since she’s an old lady, she needs a traditional name like like Sophie.

  50. Heather says:

    How about Nanner. Like nanner nanner boo-boo…

  51. Jill says:

    Lickety-split!

  52. Kim says:

    What a beauty! I would call her “Patooey” – you know, like the spitting sound? lol. I know kind of silly but that’s just what I think of when I see her! (or “Ptooey”..could spell it however you want really)

  53. Hanna says:

    How about Naughty

  54. Hanna says:

    TOOTHLESS like the Black fury form Dream Works HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
    ?

  55. Debra Olsen says:

    Madameowzel Razzberi (Razzi, for short)

  56. Debra Olsen says:

    Or, Madameow Razzberet (French accent)…Razzy, for short.

  57. Kay Craig says:

    Please let us know what you choose! :)

  58. ctti87 says:

    Edith or Lily after Lily Tomlin on Laugh-in sounds great! She looks like a Lily, too. She’s adorable!

  59. scooterdoodle says:

    I like the suggestions Sassy and Tipsy. ^_^

  60. hunny says:

    pure you kitty ;(

    name? can i call u beauty ;)

  61. Debra Olsen says:

    “Lollipop”…”Lolly” or “Poppy” for short :-) *Lolly* if a girl-*Poppy* if a boy. :-)

  62. Debra Olsen says:

    Oh, wait…How about officially “Raspberry Lollipop”, then like I said above, for short; *Lolly* if a girl or *Poppy* if a boy! (I guess *Poppy*) would work for a girl too, like the *Poppy* flower). Agree, kitty is soooooo cute! :-)

  63. Iffat says:

    Funny & cute! Can’t think of a name though. I see some great suggestions.

  64. Katherine says:

    Raspberry

  65. indee says:

    Goldie. Forget the tongue.

  66. dogafin says:

    luka :) she looks like an automatic stamp licker!

  67. nnua says:

  70. WingCommanderMeowy says:

    WIBBLE. haha! I love how the word ‘wibble’ sounds so despite naming my kitten Ziva, she now thinks ‘wibble’ is her 2nd name, lol.

  71. Marlene says:

    Anybody know what name she finally got? She’s really cute and I like the “Razzie” suggestion best… I’m curious!

  72. Chloe says:

    What a cute kitty! I like Pero! So cute :) Also Lily, and Razzy (Raspberry) are cute ideas!

  73. Sue Walker says:

    Maybe “NA NAAAA” like kids say when they stick their tongues out and then run away! Thank you for caring for this cat. She couldn’t take care of herself. Pretty baby.

  74. joy says:

    arianna i think it’s pretty!

  75. Patricia Brown says:

    Raspberry, what a fine name! She looks like a sweet kitty for sure.
