Furry Babies


Here it is, the post you've been awaiting with great anticipation, my cats' nicknames!


Proper name: Marigold
Chad came up with her name after I wanted to name her Pumpkin. Marigold fits her better.
Breed: Persian
Age: 10 people years
Rescued from: a family in Round Rock. She's a city girl like me. The suburban lifestyle just wasn't for her.
Nicknames:
Mare
Mare-bear
Da Bear
Bearigold
Mei-Mei (pronounced May-May & means little sister in some dialect of Chinese.)
Little Golden Bear
Princeth (like Princess with a lisp)
Tear-it-up-igold

Her Native-American name: Running Dumpling



Proper name: Kenji
We thought she was a boy when we first got her. Kenji means "second son" in Japanese.

Proper name: Sonic
He came into our home with this name due to his super-loud and persistent meowing when he is unhappy with a situation, scared or confused.
Breed: American Short Hair (plain, old tabby cat)
Age: 18 months in people time
Rescued from: a feral cat colony in Travis Heights. Sonic spent some time with a nice lady named Kay from Thundering Paws cat sanctuary. Kay socialized him and got him ready for adoption.

I love them all so much! Let's hope they still love Chad and me after we bring a dog home...

Are you really going to get a dog? Your cats are so cute. Didn't Kenji once try to steal a Thanksgiving turkey?
