OMG! I hadn't realized this thread existed! When I get home I'm going to post pictures of my cat, Sir Keekers "Keeky" Keekofferston Lixalot, Duke of Kissing Toast, aka Keeky The Wonder Cat.
And yes, that's his full name. I've tried to get my bf to force the vet to put that on his file, but the bf thinks I'm insane (hmm...wonder why) and just refers to him as "keeky" how boring.
And since I'm sure you'll all want to know why, here's how his name evolved:
He's one of those incessant licking cats who licks you to show affection, so when we first got him I wanted to name him Sir Lixalot (in homage to Sir Mixalot, who you may remember from the single "Baby Got Back"), but around that time my son was starting to really develop his vocabulary, and he couldn't quite say "kitty" so he'd say "keeky" and I thought that was adorable, plus when I was in college one girl we were friends with used to call me Kiki (since she couldn't remember my official nickname "Trixie" and that's a whole other story lol), so it just sort of fit. And I started calling him Keekers, which I think is very apt for him. And then for whatever reason I added the Keekofferston because I think that just sounds hilarious. And then the name Keeky started to remind me of the Buffy episode with the ancient vampire Kikistos, and in that particular episode Buffy mishears someone saying "I live for Kikistos" as "I live for kissing toast" so whenever Keeky is being bad I say that he is "kissing toast." And lately he's developing the additional tagline "wonder cat" just because he's an awful pet in general and its an ironic use; I personally am not an animal lover, I know its shocking and strange, but years of conditioning by my grandmother has lead me to not really like animals all that much unless they are totally lazy and don't do much, and so when my bf wanted to get a cat, he had alot of convincing to do (he had to promise to do the feeding and cat box) and lo and behold, when we obtained Keeky from a friend, guess who Keeky loves? That's right, me. And guess who he hates? That's right my bf. So he's all over me, I have to lock him out of the bedroom because he'll keep me up all night licking me and purring in my face, I have to hold him while I'm sitting on the toilet (very weird, but otherwise he'll meow like crazy) he follows me around the house when I get home doing that awful meow so that i'll feel bad that I left him alone all day, and he'll try to climb in my lap when I'm eating or otherwise don't want him. But then my bf, who wants to play with him and cuddle and get attention from the cat, the only time keeky goes to him is when my bf has a blanket over his legs, then he'll come sit but just so he can enjoy the blanket.
So there you go, my cat is just as messed up as I am! LOL!
Hopefully I'll remember to post a pic tonight!
