In DAF Blofeld simply called it a pussy ... so one would assume that it didn't have a name ...

Well, actually that was Bond.  What's really strange is that not only does the cat not have a name, but Blofeld never even refers to it--he holds it, he pets it, but he never once mentions that he has a cat in his arms.  Even when Bond kicks the "wrong pussy" in DAF, Blofeld doesn't make a single comment about the cat.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

This has been a long debated question in many James Bond forums, and I believe that this is the official verdict:

It has no name.

You can watch all of the Bond movies with Blofeld, and you'll never hear the cats name once.  Seriously.  I don't think anyone even knows the cat actor's name.

Flattery will get you nowhere, but don't stop trying.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Just a nameless cat.

The kitty doesn't appear in the stories, so there's not even a name we could take from those.

I guess they had to give Blofeld something to do while he was sitting there...why not pet a cat?

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

It only has eight lives after Blofeld's demise, so it is named "Octopussy".

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Hmm...I don't know where you heard that, but it's not true. Are you just kidding or something?

Octopussy has absolutely nothing to do with the cat.

Hmmmm, I think justvisiting was being droll ... just a thought ajb007/wink

Oh and apologies, of course it was Bond and the scriptwriters having fun with Sean's slight lisp, "But wrong pusshy"

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Predator, you think correctly.  I think that Sir Miles never jokes about his work, 007.

All kidding aside, why the cat in the first place.  Maybe I'm putting too much meaning into it.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Well I thought it was pretty funny.

And at least you didn't say Pussy Galore.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

I just wasn't sure if it was a joke or not...

Either way it may have confused the poor fellow that actually asked the question, which is way I clarified.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

I read somewhere (I forget where it was), but they said that the cats name was "Tiddes".  I don't know if it was a reliable source, so I don't go by that.  Just something that I read, somewhere.

I just call it "Blofeld's Cat".  In all honesty, it probably doesn't have a name.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld's feline friend was portrayed by a cat actor named Tiddes.This information can be found in Steven Jay Rubin's book,The James Bond Films.

Ah, that would make sense.  Thanks for the info WG!  I might just have to take a look at that book.

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

I did not remember that.

It wasn't the same cat each time, was it?  That would have been interesting, getting a new Blofeld every time, but keeping the same cat.

What does it say about Tiddes?

  Maybe Tiddes is the REAL brains behind SPECTRE.You'll notice 007 never caught him...

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

...and OO7 never caught Irma Bunt.  That sounds like the next movie idea: "Tiddes Never Dies".  Irma and Tiddes could have headquarters in a giant litter box, and try to corner the market on catnip and toy mice.

Come on! We all know it's really Mr Bigglesworth! ajb007/smile

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Well.....it probably doesnt have a name.

But if we were to name one......

howabout "Number 0"

since Blofeld is number 1

and his sidekicks are 2, 3, ......etc

what does everyone think?

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

Interesting idea.  This doesn't really have to do with anything, but there's a website called "Blofeld's Cat" that's dedicated to OHMSS among other things.  It's at http://www.blofeldscat.com

Although there were plans to bring back Irma Bunt, the actress that played her died before OHMSS was released so any plans to bring her back were eliminated.

But that's a good idea about the cat lol

HA! I have often thought it funny that Blofeld, in private, refers to the cat by number.

"ah, my beloved number 14"

Re: Blofeld's cat. What is it's name?

From good authority, Ernie's cat is named Number Nine.  Like all good authorities, it will remain nameless, for reasons of international security.  Its ("it" because it is like Vargas, no sex, no fun) nickname is Percy, because of his Persian antecedents.  Behind its back, the other cats call it Vargas.

"Neat, that.  Perhaps a bit too neat!"

I think it's Number 1/2 but that's just me.
