Nicknames Meme


Hi efurrybody!! Padre here. I have been thinking of creating a meme about nicknames. Although I have lived here with Mom and Dad for just three months, they already have bunch of nicknames for Panda Bear, Meerkat, and me.

And yesterday on JB’s Small World, she wrote about all the nicknames her Mom has for her and her sisters. So, in the spirit of cat blogosphere collaboration, this is the Nickname Meme, created by JB and Padre.

Here are the rules:
Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you.
Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Real Name: Padre

Padre Plays Well

Named Padre Because: I am a dark grey tabby with a white patch of fur on my neck. Mom and Dad think that the white patch makes me look like I am wearing a minister’s collar. Padre is Spanish for “Father” as in a priest’s title.

Nicknames I Like/Tolerate:
Big Grey Kitty
Mr. P.

Nicknames I Do Not Like:
Clyde (because I look like one of the kitties who came before me… named Clyde. Sometimes Mom and Dad accidentally call me Clyde.)

Now, I tag my adopted siblings, Panda Bear and Meerkat, as well as:

Miles and Sammy Meezer
Max, The Psychokitty
Monty Q. Kat
Poppy Q

Padre is the perfect name for you! Sometimes my Mommie calls my MonkeyBones Jones. I don’t know why.

HI Padre,
Great meme! Thanks for doing this and mentioning me too! By the way, could that be a plastic ring from a gallon of milk that you have in your paw? That is one of our most favorite toys at my house!

P.S. I still just like to call you the bambinos! That seems to suit you well!

Hey now Padre… your humans did a good job of naming you. The name fits you well. My human calls me Puss too sometimes because his father had a cat that *he* called Puss.
