Cat

I dropped by my sister's place today to find out that I have a new friend. My sister got a cat from the animal shelter, a seal point mix. I used to be indifferent to cats until I befriended a black and white "Sylvester" some time ago. That cat was affectionate. Unfortunately, it was killed by a coyote. I thought that cat was an anomaly amongst cats, but this new cat of my sister's is the bee's knees. The papers say that her name is "Princess" and we all thought that was pretty gay. So, this cat has no name at the moment. If it was a male, my vote would be for "Terence Hill". You just can't give dogs people names.

Anyway, my sister has been through a lot lately and she needed a faithful companion to love her and keep her company. It is amazing how much one little being can make life better.

That's so awesome that your sister got a cat! It'll definitely make good company for her.

I agree with princess being a dumb name... In university we borrowed a cat named "Patches" and we would just call her "Cat" a la Breakfat at Tiffany's. Hmmm, name? Rilo Kitty #2? LOL Joking. Oh how about Snowball 2?

Squeee! I love kitties. In college, my roommate's friend dropped a cat off with us that later became ours. I think it's name was Princess, too. We ended up naming it Shiwalla.

How about Shamzami, or SlapChop? I like As Seen on TV names.

I love cats. I have three because any more and the neighbors would start talking.

Awww. What a cute cat! But I agree, the name Princess has to go! You could name her Bigfoot since you have such a fascnination with Bigfoot.Oh nevermind...I forgot this is your sister's cat. I'll have to keep thinking of a name...

Cool cat! Looks like a mirror image to my wife's kitty.

Lose the name. I can just see you calling her name.

Here Princess kitty, here girl...

Christielli~ Snowball II would be great. I doubt my sister would go for it, though.

Julie~ Ha! Name a cat "Shamwow!"

Chris~ Cat man is so much more disturbing than a cat woman. You are right to limit yourself.

O-Girl~ Sasquatch would be an awesome cat name.

Blanche~ I absolutely loved your hair.

Yes, I didn't realize how much I loved my cat until he was the one keeping me warm on the couch at night!
