They would not do. None of them fit him, and a name must fit the being.
Prince Charming and I had a lot of conversations about him, and how he bears such a resemblance to our beloved Empress Minnie. He’s black, making him always well dressed. He trills, as did she. He’s adventurous. He’s protective of his home.

Prince Charming said he’d have to be Maxi. So…
Meet Max. Mischief Max. Maximus Cat.
