Further to this exercise I have decided to drop the names Cashcow and Catbird and their offshoots, with which I was never very happy but am now even less so. Firstly they don't really go with the Alpaca, Angora and their offshoots, secondly I now have a Cashier starting with cash, and thirdly I remembered I'd got Catbird from the title of a James Thurber story andd didn't particularly want to add yet another author to the list of ones who have inspired the series.
