Dewy Decimal. Obviously.

Duncan Cheshire said...

Childleg. Only because I didn't notice it the first time around.

Spaniel said...

I vote for "A Diamond as Big as the Ritz"

chris killen said...

thank you all for voting. people seem to have very individual 'cat taste'.

Fat Roland said...

I've just posted a Withnail & I reference on Tim Footman's blog, so I'd have to opt for Monty.

Life Of Pi missed a trick with just one tiger.

chris killen said...

maybe the first cat to get three or five votes will be the winner.

chris killen said...

this might take a while.

Mr. Pickles

I liked AC, open bracket 'at,' close bracket, forward slash, DC, open bracket 'at,' close bracket the best.

thanks. i am voting for The Old Curiosity Shop (which was actually a suggestion for a Dog name by my friend Martin).

I'm with Duncan on Childleg.

Duncan Cheshire said...

Come on Childleg!

(I realise this doesn't count as another vote, I'm just trying to drum up more support for this particular cat.)

(does it actually have one child's leg?)

chris killen said...

(Childleg's leg is a catleg, but a slightly different shape and with no fur.)

Childleg is currently winning.

Hey Chris and blog readers,

how about a short story competion?

pick a cat - submit a story/poem/sea shanty??

how did your cat get aboard 'The Cat Boat' and why???

Has your cat done something of note on 'The Cat Boat'?

Is your cat really who they say they are???

chris, you could start the ball rolling with a story about childleg (the current favourite)

emily mcsulk said...

Lisping John Murphies is my favourite. He sounds like a bootlegger. I like him.

chris killen said...

i will happily take submissions for Cat Boat short stories or poems or sea shanties. write them below as comments or send them to chriskillen [at] gmail.com and i will post them all on here. it could be a bit like that wall on blue peter.

i am taking the anonymous comment of 16th of October as a third vote for Childleg. Childleg has won. Some of the other cats voted for will get a mention in the story.

Frank Morgan said...

I've submitted a story about Cornelius . . .
