Chiami questo gatto!


Several weeks ago this extraordinarily skinny and skittish cat meowed at my door. I gave her some fish. She came back three days later, so I fed her again. Now she comes every day, and sleeps outside on the terrace, near the grape trellises.

She needs a name.

My first choice was Guilia Agrippina, the wanton daughter of Emperor Agustus, who in 7 BC exiled her to the nearby island of Ventotene, which on a clear day I can see from the terrace.

But this name seems too historical/intellectual and out of character. This animal has not a wanton bone in her body.

Any suggestions?

P.S. I'm waiting for a certain girl to respond. Some may know her as Vittoria!
