What’s in a Name?
In our house, it seems that it’s only a matter of time before our loved ones are labeled with nicknames.
A young Snape and a 2nd grade Hannah.
Hannah was just a wee one when she became Roo or Hannah-Roo (much to her dismay today).
Purfessor Snape, our black kitty is most often called Boo. Yet, he’s also known by Boo Bear, Itty Bitty Boo (which he’s not – he’s a BIG kitty now), and Cuddly Wuddly Woo Boo (although Hannah’s let that one slide as she’s aged).
Cinder is so prim and proper that it was a while before we came up with her nicknames of Miss Kitty and Cinder Kitty.
Ginger (oh, I miss her!) was Gingy, Ginger Baby, Ginger Beast and sometimes Psyco Beast (that last one was all Paul).
Gidget at 6 months after her first professional grooming.
And then there’s Gidget. Although she’s been with us for only four months she’s already racking up the monikers – Gidgee, Midget, Gidgee Midgee, and Squirt.
It’s a wonder she she has a clue we’re speaking to her and not the cats.
What’s in a name? Lots of love and affection!
