leave your inhibitions at the door
In a sudden bout of insanity, we got a kitten. On Sunday, I was by our local pet store so I stopped in to take a look at the fish. There were a bunch of kittens running around the store and I knelt down and this little guy walked up to me.
I picked him up and he started purring louder than I’ve ever heard a cat ever purr before, and he started licking my hand.
I sent these pictures to Boom Boom and thus started a 24-hour barrage of begging me to get it. I eventually relented and we brought him home the next day.
It’s not like I was opposed to getting him… OK, yeah, I was opposed to getting him. We just bought a bunch of furniture for a couple rooms of the house and the prospects of little claws on them gave me the shakes. Plus, our most recent cat has proved to be the damn Anti-Christ, so I was wondering if this one would be son of Anti-Christ.
That’s right, I said “recent cat.” You see, in addition to the Pieholes and the new kitten, we’re amassing a little zoo here. It’s not exactly crazy old lady hoarding, but in our small house it feels like it. Here’s what we have:
Outside of the turtles, I came up with all of the names and I’d like to think they are wicked awesome. But coming up with one for this guy has been tough. The Pieholes came up with “JoJo,” but I think it’s a girl’s name and kind of, well, meh. Besides, he’s the runt of his family, so I’d like to give him a name that sounds a little tougher, more “bad-ass.”
So I figured I’d see what you all think. Here’s what’s been tossed around so far:
– Keyser Soze
– JoJo (kids)
– Julius (which I SOOOOO wanted to use for my son. #shotdown)
– Chief Keef (suggested by Sh!tshow, my niece)
– Eduardo the Ninja (my current fave)
– Mr. Worldwide
– Hot Carl
– Dinner (just KIDDING. Jeez!)
Any of them jump out at you? Any other good ones? What’s your pet’s name?
