Monday is such a get-back-to-business day. I'm supposed to be writing a fabulous blog post about books or writing or some crazy yet fascinating aspect of my personal life, but I can't think of anything. So, I thought I'd post a pic of the new baby. We named him Patton, simply because we already have a Nimitz. There seemed to be a theme going, so we went with the flow (after trying out various other names that just didn't fit). Since these two larger-than-life WWII military commanders were such ego-centric characters, their names fit cats quite well. 🙂

Wow… cute kitty. How is your older cat? I know he had kidney probs.
I started your thesis. I finished your thoughts on the first book. Very thought-provoking. I haven’t heard about the woman’s heroine’s journey. I would like to read more. It fits so much better than the classic hero’s model.
Or give me a good list of how the journey goes… Thanks.
Patton and Nimitz! Wonderful, powerful, independent kitty names. You’ll have a houseful.
We’ve had Plato, Sophocles, and Magellan. Currently, we have Pericles, Ajax, and Natasha (Natasha came pre-named, but she’s just like a nasty ole Russian spy…loving one minute and chewing on you the next).
We believe our pets live up (or down) to the names we give them.
Hey, Cyn! Nimitz is not quite 2 yet. It was Thumper who had kidney problems. Miss Kitty had them too, but she had them for a few months and we had to give her SQ fluids. Thumper’s was overnight.
Glad you’re enjoying the thesis! You should really get a copy of Maureen Murdock’s book. It’s really the only way to follow the heroine’s journey. I can’t give you a list of steps because the heroine’s journey is circular. I mean, I could list the phases (once I locate the book in one of these boxes), but they occur much differently than the hero’s journey does. I think you’d enjoy Murdock’s book. It gets a little weird, but still it’s interesting. My mentor quibbled with her for not acknowledging her debt to Jung though.
Hi, Jean! I think you’re right about cats living up to the names we give them. 🙂 Great names you have for your cats! If Morag McKendrick Pippin stops by, she should say her cats names. They are VERY cool. 🙂
I hope she stops by — I’d love to hear them.
Such a cutie, Lynn! I’m in love!
Dynofelis Fergus McMouser and Smilodon St. John Blue are quite jealous! I’ll give them extra treats:-)
Actually, we’re considering adding “Stinkbomb” to Patton’s name. 🙂 I’ve never, ever had a cat with such bad gas. He could clear a room, believe me. 🙂 I keep teasing the hubby that he ought to take him to work and suggest he be used as a bio weapon. 😉
I’d be worried about him, but everything else is fine. He runs, plays, eats, sleeps, and uses his potty with no problems. But he does fart. Badly.
Give the Princelings treats for me. 🙂
My hubby is always blaming the cats. . .
Reminds of the story of Cedric in one of James Herriots’ books:-) Poor Cedric the dog belonged to a society lady who was constantly embarrassed by Cedric’s gas. Cedric always joined the parties whether or not he was invited. After a particularly stinky party Cedric was given her grounds man. He had lost his sense of smell in the Great War. Great pairing.
Does this mean I can call my hubby a bio weapon?
