Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their Naming Stories with us. We really loved them! The Mom was right (for once!), they are purry interesting! Some were unexpectedly sad, like Abby's. Our hearts hurt for the little girl who was forced to give up a beloved pet at the whim of her cold hearted father (How much better for you, sweet little Abby! People can be so mean to animals they don't like.). Or cute and clever like MoMo and Princess Grace of Carolina. Or they speak of love like Ernie, Wally or HannyWanny (yes, Hannah, it does). Reading the Meezer Tails names was a stroll down memory lane. The Mom had forgotten the stories (just how typical!) until she reread them. She laughed when she remembered little Billy SweetFeets Norton Gingersnap's wet feet! He was so tiny when he was rescued his name could be wrapped around him many times. And his Gotcha Story is one of her favorites!
Marg, we'd love to hear your Naming Stories. Maybe a couple at a time...we bet you have some good ones. Try the persimmons, the donks & goats are on to something! They are very delicate, a little like a peach, but they need to be ripe & soft or you will really pucker!
Momo, we were really excited to hear "Mini" was one of your names! YES!!! It is so fitting!
So thanks to all again! We could have read Naming Stories all night . We hope you enjoyed them too. Thank you for taking the time to write. Maybe some time we'll do nicknames! Won't that be fun??
We might only be around sporadically this weekend. The Girl is coming home from college for a long weekend. Time to get out the flicky toys and nip! Woo Hoo!
