Anonymous said: What do you think of the canon name loudbelly?
I think it’s a terrible name. It doesn’t describe the cat very well at all.
The prefix loud- would imply that the kitten was loud at birth; that’s ephemeral and also irrelevant to appearance. And so what if he squeaked a bit, all kittens do that.
As for -belly, being a body part suffix, I would assume that it represents a skill. What, exactly? The ability to digest? Good at coughing up furballs? I don’t know, I can’t seem to generate any kind of useful skill the belly could infer.
So, if it can’t be used that way, maybe it’s correlating? Combined with loud-, it would imply the cat is the feline equivalent of the Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar. What the everloving hellbaskets is that about? The cat has a really rumbly stomach all the time?
I just do not think that name was very well thought through, to be honest with you.
