Her name is even something of a mystery:  the castle's Lord (the 7th Earl of Rosse, Brendan Parsons) calls her "Socks," but doesn't seem to be much concerned with her (she's more the province of the staff than of the folks in the Big House) but the Bothy's guestbook signers seem to call her "Tuxedo".  Politely, we asked her what she wished to be called, and all we got was something like "not late to supper," so we took to calling her "Miss Kitty."
