A Daisy by any other name...

(Thanks to Maggy and Zoey for this beautiful graphic!)

The Feline Sextet tagged Pixie and I for the name Meme. It is easy to play, you just explain how you got your name!

My Mommie went to pick out a kitten from a Devon Rex breeder, and she had 3 kittens to choose from, because the other kittens were already spoken for. There was a silver tabby, just like Pixie, and a really sweet ginger tabby who was a little bit older. But when my Mommie saw me she fell in love with my beautiful dilute calico coat and funny face. When she picked me up for the very first time, I did not want to cuddle, I wanted to get down and PLAY!

After she chose me, my new Mommie had to leave me for about 2 weeks until I had my Ladygardenectomy. She had only a photo to remember me by! My Mommie spent this whole time thinking of names for me. Some of the ideas were: Kiwi, Wilma, Dolly, Lucy and Opal. My Mommie finally settled on Daisy because the flower is pretty and sunny and is made of happy colors, and is not very formal. I like my name!

Pixie's Name
You only have to take one look at Pixie's baby photo to see why she was named Pixie. She was a little imp with big frootbat ears and huge round eyes. Before she got sick with a bad heart, Pixie was very playful and silly and athletic.

That graphic is gorgeous! Very well done!
We agree you are perfectly named as Daisy! And what a little dear girl Pixie was. She looks just like she's up to something in that picture. Like: "Who me? I wasn't doing anything.""

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

You are very cute and beautiful, Daisy! We are glad your mommy picked you.

Pixie was very very cute when she was a kitten! I wish she didn't have a bad heart...however, she still looks beautiful too!

Mommy put the tomatoe box on top of the cold box and I love sleeping in it now! Plus it is right next to my favorite highest kitchen shelf! Come on over and we can jump around...I am old, but I can still jump like a frog:)

Ooh I like how you and Pixie got your names! Cute photo of baby Pixie too, she certainly does have frootbat ears, kinda like my batty 'sis! ;)

David E Maeda said...

Nice story. I can't imagine any name other than Daisy for you. And that picture of Pixie is classic. Pixie indeed.

The Furry Kids said...

You and Pixie both have names that are absolutely perfect for you.


PS - Momma's car is named Wilma. :)

The Furry Kids said...

Daisy, it took Momma over an hour just to put the wheels on. And they just snap on, but the cr@ppy (sorry!) drawrings in the manual didn't look like the parts on the wheels. She said lots of words on the bad word list - especially after she finished and realized that it should've really only taken about 10 minutes tops. Hahahahaha! Maybe she shoulda called your Daddie for help. hee hee

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Both your names suit you so well!

What a cute picture of baby Pixie, you are both so adorable!

The Crew said...

Pixie dear, your baby picture is just too cute! No wonder your Mom named you Pixie.

We hope you'll have many more purrthdays and get a new banana for each one!
