The Naming of Cats is a Difficult Matter by TS Elliot

The Naming Of Cats, a poem by T S Eliot
I call him Lynx, but who knows what he’s calls himself

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

First of all, there’s the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey—
All of them sensible everyday names.
