What’s in a name?

I’m sure I’ve been over this before, but it bears repeating. People have the best names for their pets.

There are many with “human” names – which is how we roll at the Rossman house.

  • Charlie (LOTS of Charlies)
  • Rhett
  • Bogart
  • Katie (LOTS of Katies)
  • Simon

I love freaking people out by talking about our cat Ron. “Ron’s in the hospital!” “Ron’s getting neutered today!” “I made Ron sleep in the garage!” Once I had a boss and a cat named Steve. That was awkward.

Other pet names are more…inspired.

  • Barnaby Jones Pickles
  • Diesel
  • Sparrow
  • Gaia
  • Oreo
  • Athena

And this guy.

    I fear I normally succumb to boring pet names, but now I feel inspired to just go crazy with my next one. Hm, this’ll take some thought!
