Time to name the new kitten.

She is all grey tiger with the exception of her right rear foot, which looks like a tan boot.

I have on the tip of my mind a fictional character, probably from a children's book, who is hopping along a puddley road wearing only one boot.

That's obviously who I should name my kitten after, but I can't think of either the book of the character's name. Who am I thinking of, does anyone know?

Or are there any other characters wearing only 1 boot or 1 shoe (NOT Cinderella, though!)

This is the only one I could think of:

Mr. Magnolia for a female kitten? ��

Maggie for short?

Tigger?

Christopher Robin appears in Milne's poems and in the two books: Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928). In the books he is a young boy and one of Winnie-the-Pooh's best friends. His other friends are Eeyore, Kanga and Roo, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, and Tigger.

All I can think of is "Puss 'n Boots" or "Puss in Boots." lol Not sure about the one boot or shoe, though.

EDIT: I just did a search and apparently there's a children's book character called Pete the Cat who wears shoes. Again, I don't know anything about just the one shoe.

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,
Went to bed with his trousers on;
One shoe off, and the other shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John

How about Dumpling?

Magnolia, Robin and Dumpling are all good name contenders, thanks everyone!

Not who I was thinking of, though. Man, I wish I could remember whoever it was!
