Mildred the Cat … Help, more name calling
Howdy everybody. I hope everyone is well. I am ok, except for all the name-calling still going on around here.
You know I’ve been having a problem with my mom calling me absurd names like Mildred Kitty Witty. Today she came up with a new one – Mildred Silly Dilly Willy. Egads! Not even close to my real name.
Why do cat parents insist on doing this? We are given a name upon arrival, but that name is never enough. It seems most humans have one name but we fine upstanding kitties can have as many names as our humans can invent and spew upon us on a daily basis, all done in the name of love according to my mom.
Does this mean my mom’s mom didn’t love her as much as my mom loves me? Her mom (my late grandmother) called her Linda. So did her father. So does her brother and all her friends. No Linda Pinda or Lindy Pindy or Linda Dolly Dimples Wimples or Linda-Such-A-Good-Girl. Just Linda.
I was thinking of calling my mom Windy Lindy to see how she likes it but I think I’m rethinking that. I really want my toys and my chicken treats and don’t want to risk losing them, even for a short time.
Sorry for the rant. I’m feeling a little better now that I’ve shared this with you. I’m still a little upset and I think a long nap on my mom’s bed will help ease my pain.
Till next time, purrs, paws and high fives.
