So many of you have kindly shared posts and pictures of your pets, which always brightens my day. So, I thought I’d return the favor 😸
This is Chloe Furiosa, my 5 year old Siamese mix. I am unsure of what she is mixed with, but the vet is convinced that she’s either part moose or part Army tank due to the fact that she is 14lbs of pure muscle.
I went with the name Chloe because it just seemed to fit and she took to it immediately. Her middle name is Furiosa after Charlize Theron’s character in Mad Max Fury Road because she was a formidable little spitfire of a kitten. However, her middle name is more ironic than accurate nowadays. She is as sweet and peaceful as a cat gets. When I brought her siblings home and occasionally did cat-sitting for friends, Chloe was hissed at, spit at and swiped at. But she never retaliated. Instead, she just sat quietly (exactly like she is doing in the photo on the bottom right), looking at the aggressors calmly... kindly... thoughtfully.
So instead of calling her by her proper name, I have a myriad of nicknames for her:
Bubba, Moomoo, Booboo, Badunkachunk, Moopers, Mummy Methusala, Munkywunkers… etc., etc.
And now, the inevitable question: What is the most ridiculous nickname you have ever given a pet?
I ask this for purely selfish reasons… Mainly for assurance that I am not the only lunatic who calls her cat such outlandishly absurd names 😹
