Cool cats

Every once in awhile, I get the question…. “how are the CATS??”

Well they are a year old now (if you can believe it), and have been with us for about 9 months. I can’t imagine them not being here, they have been just a joy to have from the day we brought them home last June from the shelter.

Riley is David’s cat. This cat lives and breathes for David. He waits patiently for David to come home from school, and proceeds to curl up on the chair with him until dinner time. You cannot imagine how happy this makes me. David never really had a pet that cared so much for him, and I envision many years of boy/feline friendship. lol.

A funny story about Riley’s nickname… we often call him Bimwidie. Why Bimwidie? Well, around Halloween last year, David had his “Pretend Veterinarian Kit” out and was playing with Riley. Listening to his heart, and pretending he had a paw injury. He had this little fake prescription pad, and was just starting to learn how to spell small words. Across the top, he wrote the word “Bimwidie”. When I asked him what the word was, he said it was Riley. The name stuck. Much like how my former cat was named Luke, but became Mr. Meister Kitty.

Harley prefers me and S. He has managed to channel my previous most beloved cat, Luke, in his behavior and coolness factor. He comes when you call him, can’t wait to sit down with us, and nudges me awake in the morning. He’s low-key all the time (a total lap cat), unlike his brother Riley who is part daredevil cat.

It’s hard to believe it, but we actually managed to take on two new pets in 2008 (after we lost three in 2007), and BONUS! they are alive and well.

There’s hope for the BagMomma family yet!

  1. Here from ICLW.Your cats are beautiful! I love their names, especially Riley’s other name.I just wanted to add that I totally get what you mean about Tom Colicchio. 🙂

  2. I love how we “name” our pets and then proceed to call them something else. Both of my dogs are called just as often by their nicknames as their “real” ones — in fact more often! We also used to have two cats who NEVER were called their official names — instead we simply called them “orange kitty” and “grey kitty.” Yep, for over six years.:-) Thanks for the smile!

  3. Ohhh.. they’re cute! You’re brave. e gave our twin kitties back after four weeks. They went from very sweet and cuddly in their foster home to LITTLE DEVILS after we brought them home. I’m not terrified of having a pet ever again!
