In Which We Raise A Glass



I was thinking that maybe it would be good idea to mention the other cats whom I have known over the years (and still do know, in many cases).

Therefore, and without further ado, here's to:

Abraham, Agata, Aiacina, Anthony, Bedelia, Belisarius, Benny, BPluff, BScreamy, Bubastis, Claudia, Cleopatra, Cooper, Delilah, Desdemona, Epaminonda (aka "Baffo"), Isaac, J.J., Ko-Ko, Lemke, Margherita, Micah, Misha, Nefertiti, Nuvola, Ophelia, P'tit Duc, Paint, Pest, Puah, Samson, Sarah, Taffeta, The Cat Whose Footprints I Found On An Ancient Roman Rooftile, The Nameless Kitten Who Lived With Us In Ossaia, and Yum-Yum.

This is obviously not a full list; for one thing, I can't remember the names of all of Bubastis' progeny (help with that, CR?), nor those of Baby Cat's sibs (Chorus?). Do feel free to suggest additions and corrections to the list! In fact, feel free to send in the names of cats that you've known. I'll add them to the list, and we'll salute them all!

UPDATE: I think we're getting there...

FURTHER UPDATE: Here are a couple of pictures of the recently departed one.

Well, when Baby Cat and her siblings were first born, we named them after piano keys because they were black or white and we couldn't tell their genders. So they were F-sharp, G, A-flat, A and B-flat.

And then when we could tell which of them were which KIND, as it were, we renamed them all after Old Testament figures. So they were:

Isaac (the first born)
Micah
Puah
Samson and Delilah (the two white kittens, though somehow, Delilah ended up with all the hair)

Great! I will head off to update the post!

Please note that among Baby Cat's sibs, the names "Sodom and Gomorrah" were vetoed at an early stage of deliberations....

Chunklets said...

But, but, but... why? :)

Spelling question: Were they "Bescreamy" and "Bepluff," or have I got that totally wrong?

Chorus said...

Sodom and Gomorrah just seemed like pretty weighty names for kittens... Especially kittens that looked like these two...

Crimson Rambler said...

They were BScreamy and BPluff.

Thanks! All duly updated!

Oh... the pictures are lovely!

I have no idea how I got her to sit still for the bottom one!

And Pest, though he wasn't a family cat, did live with family.
