But what I wanted to talk about today is really important...
Has anyone else here given their pet a last name? Seriously, I am not a weirdo, but calling my cat a last name that I made up sorta makes me feel like one.
When my brothers and I were growing up, we loved to make each other laugh when we weren't making each other cry. One of the "games" we played over the years, was to come up with the funniest sounding name. Each of us taking turns trying to outdo the others' creation. Many names were created over the years, but none sticks out in my head more than the one I now call my new little cat.
My son picked the name Skeeter, because my brother (now grown, of course!) just wrote him and letter and said he got a pet mouse and named him Skeeter. I had actually forgotten that Skeeter was part of the funniest-name-ever-created-by-us, until one day, I wanted Skeeter to come in the room, and I yelled, "Skeeter! Skeeter Magillicutti!"
My husband looked at me, and said, "What was that?!" I was actually embarrassed, for I am not one of those people who usually gush all over their pets and make up names for them. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) I burst into laughter when I realized I had been calling him that for several days...it had seemed so natural, because whenever we wanted to make each other laugh, my brothers and I would say, Skeeter Magillicutti.
Maybe this is only funny in my head, but it's worth it to ask, am I the only one who has given their cat a last name other than your own?
So, because Skeeter has a surname, our cat Blueberry needs one too. We've come up with some funny ones, but they just don't flow as well as Skeeter Magillicutti. I would love some ideas, and the funnier the better, as long as it can flow off my tongue easily. Here are some things about Blueberry to consider: He is a Russian blue (so we were told/hence the name Blueberry), he pees on things, he literally hugs people, he likes shoulders, he is crazy and can be skittish.
Here are some of our creations:
- Blueberry Juarez
- Blueberry's Berries (get it? lol)
- Blueberry Rodriguez
- Blueberry Vodka
- Blueberry Babushkin
- Blueberry Gorbechev
- Blueberry Bagel
