My mother's cat is called Buffy. This caused immense amusement amongst some of us when she announced the name: she didn't recognise the television reference, and claims that the name was suggested by my mischevious and irreverent brother Richard. From ursinehenry I now learn that daemongirl's cat is called Binky. She claims that it's all whotheheckami's fault. ang_grrr has patsycat and brisingamen has therealsnufkin. Anyone else?
