Vaughn raised his eyebrows and looked at the eyes glowing in the reflection of his rear-view mirror. “Me name you? Uh-” that did seem too much like having a pet, and whilst he had considered owning an animal for some company, he hadn’t envisaged a giant demon cat choosing him. And something- something about the way the cat said that made Vaughn shiver. Not in an unpleasant way, no. That purr, too, the laugh that followed- he shook his head, not really sure how to react.
“I’m going to call you Kitty when you’re pissing me off,” Vaughn replied, though now he had something else to think of. “My family are British, my parents. My dad is from Wales. There’s a Welsh demon cat called Cath Palug. But Palug doesn’t really suit you. You’re a boy, yeah? Or do you not have a gender?” He could come up with a gender neutral name, no problem. “Salem seems a bit too obvious, I think people would just laugh at me if I called you that-” because so many people would know, of course. “Well, I’m all out of names, so I guess it’ll have to be Kitty. I’m sure you’ll get used to it when I’m petting your head and making you purr-” He grinned, but got back to thinking.
“Lots of Asian cultures have mythological cats-” Vaughn mused. “I’m going for a theme here, you see? But- Oh, there’s a kasha, have you heard of those? I mean, you probably have, I guess all demon cats know each other, right? And they steal corp...ses...huh.” Well, sometimes he was a bit of an idiot. Frowning out of the front window, Vaughn ruminated on that. “I’m going to call you Ash. For short. You good with that?”
