Sometimes a name doesn't come to you until you've had the cat a while. Our female cat came with the name Sandy, but we've taken to calling her Sumo, due to her passion for wrestling and somewhat chunky shape.
My kitten was named "Heidi" by the Humane Society, and we knew rather quickly that we wanted to change it. Not that I have anything against the name, it just didn't seem like it suited her. I had a hard time coming up with an alternative while my SO kept tossing out names and eventually said Arya and that was it - it felt right for the little spitfire we had adopted.
Margaux had been brought to the local SPCA with a broken jaw. The staff named her...BJ. Needless to say, that wasn't going to work. Celia came in just before Christmas. They named her Mistletoe, which I suppose is kind of cute (but they had it spelled Misseltoe). But I like human names. Hence.
This may not be as much fun, but we always try to name our cats with simple names that they will respond to. That is why we went with Milo and Toby for our boys. Phonetically, they have high and low sounds so they are easy to recognize.
Toby's name was Morgan in the shelter, and not only was it too serious it didn't have a "ring" to it.
Milo is a Russian Blue, and if we were to have named him Cobalt we would have simply called him Coby for short.
Hello! This morning I heard meowing under our front porch. Its -20 celcius and snowing lots today. I am not sure what to do. I took a look around the porch and can only see a small hole that something dug its way in. Couldn't look long as I have a baby at home and husband is at work
Those of us that have indoor cats - I guess a fair few of us have cat trees. Lukas is very much an indoor boy (always has been apparently - I adopted him about two weeks ago). So anyway. I'd love to see cat tree pics. Here are the ones I brought for Lukas.
I really want to buy a microchip cat door (both of our cats are chipped). The product I was looking at is called is by sure pets and called the microchip pet door (not the cat door--our cats are large males). I don't want to install it in our actual patio door, but would rather...
One of our kittens has two different color eyes. She is very young, just over 6 weeks. One eye is blue, the other green. I know their eyes continue changing until almost 6 months, but what are the chances they will stay different colors or is it normal for one to change before the other?
I am on...
I thought it might be interesting to try a kangaroo shirt to see if any of my growing brood would like it.
When I look around, I cannot find anything suitable for men. Putting aside the cat's ears on many of the hoodies, even the "unisex" ones I see are sized for women. I see a lot of...
