    The Cat species don't have names at all. It stems from the way cats [supposedly] don't care about anyone else. The old priest didn't have one either.

    Yes, don't forget that priest didn't refer to the Cat's parents by name but as the cripple and the idiot.

    I've always found the idea of Cat's backstory fascinating. I want to know all about Kitty School, and about the history of the cat race, all the wars and the coloured hats and the arks! Always wished that was covered in more detail. Wanted an episode where they went back in time and saw it all!

    In Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, doesn't Cat say that his name might be "Hey You"?

    Or am I inventing memories again?

    That's a bit like Baldrick in Blackadder saying his first name was sod off!

    Not so much an invented memory as a bit altered. If I remember correctly it's the way one Cat gets the attention of another due to the fact they have no names.

    That sounds a bit more familiar, yes. Well, I know what book I'm reading tonight!

    I think that the Cat's in Identitiy Within both had names if I recall but they were a more evolved species than the one played by Danny.

    But in "Identity within" (or some similar name, it was an extra on Series 7 I think) the other cats names, right?

    I believe there is one strip in the Smegazine's that dealt with a technologically advanced faction of Cats (from the times of the Holy War) coming forward in time to kidnap Lister and bring him back in order to answer for his 'crimes' as Cloister.

    Pretty good strip, as we get to see Kryten's head placed on Hudzen-10's body.

    Not sure if you are asking me a question or just repeating what I said in a slightly garbled form but if you are asking what I think you are asking then yes they did. The female Cat's name was Aura. As I said though, these would be a more advanced evolution of Red Dwarf's Cat given all the time that Cat has spent in Stasis combined with the fact that they lived in an actual society.

    maybe Danny could do a follow up to the Tounge Tied single, and do a parody of "Thats Not My Name" by the Ting Tings!
