I thought it would be cute to give details about how the kitties got their names and what we actually wind up calling them.
You know how when you are a little girl and you think up names you will give your children? I always dreamed of having a little girl and naming her Katie. Well, 4 boys later and I settled on giving the name to the cat lol. I spell it a little differently for my kitty. Katy definitely knows and responds to her name. Being the senior kitty (and only other girl in the house for many years) she also goes by “Girly Girl” and “Old Lady Cat.” On a side note, Katy has a cold and has lost her voice. This is significant for her, as she is a big loudmouth! It’s been pretty funny watching her walking around, opening her mouth and having nothing come out. ;)
Smokey is ds1’s cat. We got him shortly after moving into our new house. Not sure why ds picked this name, probably his colorings. Sometimes we call him “Smokey Hokey Pokey” but being the tough mancat that he is he barely responds to his given name (or any of the ways we beckon him.)
Winston. Ah, Winston. He is ds3’s cat and we have no clue at all why he picked that name. It just appealed to him at the time I guess. Winston does respond to his name…and is so friendly he responds to anyone who seems like they like him (or are just in the vicinity lol.) We call him Winnie most of the time.
Mimi! My sweet little girl. She literally is a little girl…the smallest of the bunch and just a little sweetheart. I didn’t officially name her until she had been with us over two weeks. We threw a bunch of names back and forth (I think Mini Me had the most votes) but I settled on Mimi. I think it captures her sweetness, her small stature and her girly goodness. It’s pretty much all we call her and she does respond to it when she feels like it. :)
For more kitty fun head over to Gattina’s and happy COT!
