potato

One day many years ago i was walking my dog Emma .We were walking along a dirt road with a deep ditch.Suddenly emma's ears pricked up and she started to run along the ditch whining.Thinking she smelt a mole ore mouse i did not pay attention until she started to come to me look at me and back to the ditch.I went to investigate and saw an animal so muddy that i could only identify it after it let out a pitiful miou.It was a tiny kitten.I picked it up and carried it home.Walking in to the house my Hubby looked at my and the ball of mud
"What's that"? he said.
Me :,"a kitten,Emma found it"
Hubby:,"What colour is it"
Me:,"let's find out,let's give it a bath"
Meanwhile 9 year old son appears on scene.
Son:",wow it's snow white,can we keep it"!
To my surprise Hubby:"mm..Alright"
Son:"lets call it snowball...or snowflake or fluffy"
ME:"Everybody calls a white cat those names.Let's be more original"
Son:"O.K Potato"!
Me:"POTATO!!!You can't name a cute little kitten POTATO."
Son:"Well,She was all muddy when you brought her in,and after you peeled of the layers of mud she turned white,just like a potato".
Hubby:"You wanted original.
Me:,...,well i guess Potato it is"
Potato:MIOU!"
Emma:",Woof!"

THE END

Re: potato

What a great story and what a lucky little kitten she was! I like the name potato and the reasons for it. My white cat is named Casper (Not very original) just because we usually keep the name of the cats we adopt.

Re: potato

That's a lovely story. You say this happened 'many years ago'. Is Potato still with you?
