We've Been Tagged!

We have been tagged for two meme's by Panda Bear and Abby. We'll do Panda Bear's first! It is the nickname meme:

Here are the rules for the Nicknames Meme:

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: Captain Jack

Named Captain Jack because: On the day that I came to my forever home, Mommy and Daddy could not figure out a name for me. The kids who found me named me Oreo but that just did not seem to fit for me. That night, Aunt Susan came over to give me a checkup and make sure I was a healthy kitten. Mommy and Aunt Susan got to talking about names and at first they thought of giving me a Lord of the Rings name to match Samwise., but none of them seemed to fit. Other names were thrown around and finally Aunt Susan said "Captain Jack! Cats are defiantely piratey by nature so call him after Captain Jack in Pirates of the Carribean!" Mommy agreed but "catified" my name by calling me Captain Jack Kitten!

Nicknames I like/tolerate: Captain, The Captain, Rabbit (for Jack Rabbit. They've called me this since I was a baby so I tolerate it), Kitty-kitty, Baby Kitty, Kitty Pup (since I was raised by a dog who thinks he is a cat so he is actually a Puppy Cat), and Moose Cat (cause I am a big cat too)

Nicknames I hate: Jack-Jack, Loud Mouth, Big Kitty, Holstein, Kitty Number One, and Cow Cat.

Real Name: Dante

Named Dante because: When I was adopted by the beans, I looked pretty awful - like I had been to the Underworld and back. They named me Dante after Dante's Inferno. It was a pretty fitting name for a Frakenkitty.

Nicknames I like/tolerate: Don Juan, Don Juante, Don Don, Orangey, Snuggle kitty, and Lover Kitty - cause I am defiantely a snuggle, lover cat. I also like Frakenkitty and Great Pumpkin Cat. And let's not forget my pirate names - Sir Dante and Dread Pirate Dante as well as First Mate!

Nicknames I hate: Round cat, Fatty Fatty Two by Four, Tubby Kitty, Fat Cat, Wide Load - you get the point. Hey, if you had been homeless and never knew where your next meal was coming from, you would eat like a cow too! I also hate Kitty Number Two. Sigh.

For this meme, we would like to tag Captain Jack's Lady Boo, Dante's Lady Pearl, everyone at TT's, and everyone at Sunny's.

We're going to do Abby's meme tommorow since this one turned out so big!!

Kitty number one and kitty number two?!?!?!

How generic of your parents. I'm shocked! I would hate that, too. If my mommy did that, I would be Kitty Number Three!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Great stories behind both of your names! :) You have some wonderful nicknames and some not-so-wonderful ones too.

DEBRA said...

Oh those were wonderful stories on how you were named and all of those great nicknames. Thank you for selecting me! I am so thrilled I am not used to being so honored and I will do my post tomorrow!

I miss you my sweet and handsome pirate!
It's glorious here you should come and visit and we can snuggle in the sunbeams together.

Purrs and Nosekisses
Your lady pirate
Miss Boo

Sunny's Mommy said...

Capt. Jack, I cannot believe they call your Holstein!! You are NOT that big :-0 That's mean.

I love all of your nicknames you like, Dante. Did you know we call Sunny Wide Load, too? We do. We say "wide load, coming through!" Haha! Well, it's funny to me and Sunny's Daddy :-p

Thanks for the tag. It'll be some time next week before they get around to doing the meme ;-)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I should hate being called Cow or Fatty Fatty Two By Four...

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Momma used to call daddy's tuxie Kit, Cow Kitty. When he out in the middle of the back yard she thought he looked like a cow out in the pasture. He was a big boy too, around 16 #. ~Queen Snickers

PB & J said...

What wonderful stories behind your names! We're excited to do the meme, we'll get on it right away! We love that picture of Captain Jack, pretty fun!

Dante Darling,
You're not fat! I prefer Snuggle Kitty or Lover Kitty - I will never call you any of those other names!

Purrs and head butts,

Junior said...

What is it with beans and their references to our sizes? Maybe we should start doing this to them!

I do liek most of your other names though!

HRH Yao-Lin said...

I love both of your names - the human says that Captain Jack is a character from Dr Who and is the image conjured up when she hears your name!

Of course it is a piratey name, my slave is just stupid! x

MoMo said...

Some of those nicknames are downright ignominious - Kitty No 1, Kitty No 2, Wide Load, Fatty Fatty 2 X 4! No wonder you object to them, I definitely would! Sheesh!

TT said...

This meme will be fun! It's always interestings to know how kittys gets their names.

Diva Kitty said...

Holstein?? That calls for some poops on the pillow!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

tee hee hee that is so funny. I like your nicknames you tolerate and would scratch a sofa for the other ones....

SophieKitty said...

Those are great stories. Dante, I didn't realize you had such a hard life before your beans. You've come a long way, baby!

The Meezers said...

we would not like those nicknames either.

Jimmy Joe said...

Holstein?! That is downright offensive, buddy. I think your real cat names are excellent.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Beezer said...

See Dante, its just not fair!
I've always had a good home, I's just like to eat.

Cow Cat!! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!
That is really funny.

muffinmidi said...
