I got a new cat: Tatiana!
« on: March 10, 2012, 04:25:18 PM »
A friend and I went to the Humane Society today and picked her out. I named her Tatiana, after my favourite of the Grand Duchesses. She's one and half years old and is busy exploring the apartment. I have shown her where her food and water dishes are, plus her litter box.

She's a torbi, a member of the calico family.  I don't have any photos of her yet, but I will take some in the future.

Thanks, Anne.

I wonder how her namesake would think of this.

I'm sure TN would be touched and I'm sure the cat is aware of the honor too . =)
Not as we would be, but it has to be aware of the feelings you have for the name you gave it ...imo

But is she "exotic" looking like GD Tatiana? :-)

If we get a female cat I may too name it after one of the GDs but wait to give it a name for a few weeks just as people used to wait a while before naming their babies. In the interim if the cat was sweet and a cuddler I think "Maria" would be her name. If wise and cunning perhaps "Olga". It playful but mischievous a lock for "Anastasia", lol

Our youngest is Cleocatra, the oldest is Abbacat.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

lol cute...as a Genesis fan I guess I should consider "Abacat" for a potential name. I always liked the idea of "Catalyst" too.

There is a also couple I know who named their cat "Eartha Kitty" :-)

Congrats on the new cat Tim! I work at the humane society, so I'm always very happy when an animal goes home with their new family. I myself just adopted two puppies from my location this morning. I haven't picked out names yet, but my sister and I are thinking of naming them Kanoa and Mano (Kanoa means "Free One" in Hawaiian and Mano means "Shark" ).
I won't be impressed with technology until I can download food.

Interesting names.  It's always nice to give an animal that needs a loving home exactly that.

Interesting take on the name "Cleopatra."  Of course, cats were worshipped in Ancient Egypt.  When the Pharaoh died, their favourite cat was often buried with them, to accompany them in the afterlife.
