Thursday Thirteen: My Names

As you all know, cats are so important and complex that we need many names. Unfortunately, I am called some names that I do not think are appropriate. Nevertheless, I am including all of my names in this Thursday Thirteen so you can see what I have to put up with.

1) Jimmy Joe. This is my real name, a very respectable country-cat name.

2) J.J. This is what my friends call me.

3) Jumbo Jim. Granny calls me this. I think this is kinda rude.

4) James Joseph. When Momma calls me this -- uh oh...

5) Jimmy the Hut. Auntie Jane calls me this. She thinks it's funny, but it's not.

6) Jimmy No. I think I've mentioned this one before. Sometimes Momma gets confused and calls me this by mistake.

7) "Hey hey hey--it's Faaaaat Jimmy!" Auntie Jane says this sometimes, too. She has a really lame sense of humor.

8) Jay-Bird. This is one of Momma's special names for me.

9) Fatty McCatty. Momma says this and laughs, but it's not funny. She also calls Coco "Chatty McBratty" sometimes, though, which is funny. Ha ha ha!

10) Great Melon of World Peace. This is my Native American name.

11) "Hey bud" -- this is what Poppa calls me.

12) "eee..schnurff...rrr" -- this is what Coco calls me. It's in Wiener Dog, which is hard to translate.

13) Sweet-Boy. Because I am.

We asked da woofie across da street what "eee..schnurff...rrr" meant and he sed it is weener dog fur 'Oh, King of Cats". In Malamute woofie it means "big boss cat". Reely, dats what she said.

after we readed ZSS's comment, we shouted to the Boxer dog that lives 'ahind our house, and she saided that "eee...schnurff..rr" in Boxer means "handsome top cat". we like number 13 best though

wow, i like your name in weener dog. very appropriate. mommies can be so silly with their names.

perhaps the next time your aunt calls you fat, you can leave a present in her bag. max the psychokitty do it command, i need some laxitone.

Jimmy No sounds a lot like the name Mom calls me sometimes... PepiNo and PepiGetDownRightNow. Moms are like that I guess.

Well, i asked Tazz, tha poodle next door, what "eee..schnurff...rrr" meant. It translates roughly to Boss Cat in Poodle.
Purrs, KC

Those are some pretty great names. I agree with you that some are just plain mean and not nice at all. I wonder what my name would be in weiner dog...

Samantha & Mom said...

Jimmy Joe we love your T13. We always like to learn the names our friends are called by their family. They are always so entertaining. You don't look fat to us!! We are so sorry, we didn't have you in our links, but we fixed that and you are now. Have a nice Friday!
