On the Naming of Cats
It seems to me that Sulla (short for Lucius Cornelius Sulla) is a fine name for a cat. From what we know of the man, he was lucky (thus "Felix"), ruthless but kind and loving to friends, playful, utterly self-centered, convinced of the rightness of himself and his goals, sensual, cruel, clever and fascinating. That sounds very much like a cat, to me.
