In my experience it doesn't matter what I name them to begin with, because they usually end up being called by a nickname, or their name evolves over time to something completely different.

How do you pick put a name for your new baby? This is a rather silly question. However, I'll tell you how I pick out the names for my cats, usually. I consider the cat's appearance, and if there is something special or remarkable about the fur, or ears, or tail, or color eyes, or anything like that, I may name the cat that way. Example: My cat has long, beautiful, silky fur. The name Hairy--Harry pops into my head. It's something of a joke name, since I can intend it to mean the hairy cat, or the boy's name Harry. A pun, you see. Or perhaps the cat has remarkable behavior. As a frisky kitten, you may want to name it Frisky, or maybe Rascal, or Rowdy. Or the kitty is constantly hollering, howling, yowling, etc. Name it Yowley, or Howley. It's not like you are naming a child, and must get a good name to be put on his birth certificate! Don't get all bent out of shape over it, and just give the cute kitty a cute name you will enjoy saying! Cathysw

Is it bad to pick up your adult cat by the back of the neck?

I would not do it, for sure. That loose skin is there on the back of a kitten's neck for the mother cat to use to pick up her kittens. You are not a mother cat, and an adult cat is pretty heavy compared to a tiny ball of fur. It has to hurt.

Is it mean to pick a cat up by its scruff?

The scruff of the neck cannot support the weight of an older kitten or adult cat; it will be painful for the cat and can cause injury to the cat's neck and spine. When picking up a cat, always support the back-end with one hand, and under the front legs with the other. This distributes the weight of the cat evenly and allows the cat to be comfortable. BTW-If your cat has a collar on, take it off before you pick it up by its scruff. You might tighten it by accident. If your cat has a small scruff, don't pick it up. If a cat is overweight or has arthritis, don't pick it up. Don't swing it back and forth, and put it down gently. Just saying, otherwise you'll hurt it.
