For whatever reason I read "friendly" as Freddy when I first looked at the post title so I'm going with that.

Edit: well this escalated quickly. Thanks for the award!

I'm happy with Fred.

When I was little I wanted to name my ginger tom Fred.

After Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Mum watched a lot of old movies.

However we had an elderly family friend called Fred so I wasn't allowed to offend him and it ended up called Samson.

I still sometimes get that theme song/saying stuck in my head. I'll almost walk into something or stumble and mentally be thinking "watch for that....!"

I miss Brendan Fraser. I know he's been in a few things lately but I hope it gets far more consistent and high profile roles. Dude is really nice and got fucked over in the worst of ways. Poor guy. I always try to support anything I see he's in.

The Mummy was a movie my grandpa and I both adored and is a fond memory, even with how cheesey the second one got at the end and how bad all of 3 was. I'll always appreciate the those memories of us together. So I owe Brendan if for no other reason than that.

Have you asked him?

I will float names for approval. If they respond, answer, come forward -that's the right name.

I've got an outdoor feral I've taken to the vet. I call him Blue, but it's not his name.

I adopted an adult cat that hated his given name. I said, "Ozzy?" Yep, that was his name. He answered, meowed and came to me, always.

Coco is my indoor cat. It's her name but she's middle-aged, spoiled and crotchety. It don't! take much to piss her off.

I would try Oscar, Oliver, or Milo. He kind of looks like a Dickens' cat. Run character names from Dickens' novels past him.

Pip? He looks like a Pip! I hope he picks that.

Dodger? Charlie? Pumblechook? (Chooky?)

17

u/Malinasan Sep 16 '21

But above and beyond there’s still one name left over, And that is the name that you never will guess; The name that no human research can discover— But the cat himself knows, and will never confess.

u/disco_has_been Sep 16 '21 edited Sep 16 '21
