In Welcome to Night Vale, Khoshekh, the cat hovering in the men's bathroom at the radio station, has a litter of kittens. They were all adopted (but continue hovering in the bathroom and are just visited by their adopters). I recall that at least one adopter named his kitten after himself, but I don't remember what the name was, or if any of the other kittens had names mentioned in the show.

As far as I can tell from scanning the podcast transcripts, the only kitten that has been canonically named is "Larry Leroy", mentioned in episode 55; "The University of What It Is"

His kittens are, of course, also floating in fixed locations in the same bathroom, and are being cared for by their various owners. Larry Leroy, out on the edge of town, has especially taken after one of the kittens, who he has named – confusingly – “Larry Leroy.”


According to the transcript of episode 207, "LOST: CAT," the cats' adoptive names were Mixtape, Larry Leroy, and Potato, whilst their birth names were Rafael, Jeremiah, and Anissa, respectively.

Anyway, I showed her the other 3 cats: Mixtape, who I named, he’s my favorite; Larry Leroy, who Larry Leroy named; and Potato, who looks and acts like a potato.

Tonya tried her darnedest to talk to them, but still got nothing about Khoshekh’s whereabouts. All Tonya was really able to tell me was that these aren’t the cats’ real names. Tonya said Potato’s real name is Anissa [rhymes with Clarissa], and that Larry Leroy’s real name is Jeremiah, and Mixtape’s real name is Rafael, though he likes Mixtape better than his birth name.
