Sunday Confessions Nov. 21, 2010

It's time once again for Sunday Confessions. This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate. 

A few weeks ago we got a kitten. That's right! I finally talked my husband into one. Growing up I had a kitty that I loved and she even went to college with me. She was a great pet and I miss her. We already have a dog named Scamp. He's a shy dog and we thought he could use some company. So after hours and hours of persuasion, my husband finally relented and now we have our kitten. We had a huge debate over what to name her. My kids wanted names like 'ketchup' and 'princess pony'. I wasn't a fan of either names. In the past we have let our kids name our pets. We've had hamsters named Buzz, Starscream and Penelope. They even named our dog, Scamp (from Lady and the Tramp II). This time I wanted to be the one to name the kitty so I named her Arwen. (I named her after Arwen Evenstar from Lord of the Rings).  She has settled in nicely to our home (meaning she's taken over and now is queen of all that she sees).  She's a great addition to our family and we all have fallen in love with her.

So my question this week is: Do you have any pets? If yes, what are their names and how did you come up with the names?


  1. I have a dog (poodle) and his name is Max. The pets in my past were one other dog and his name was "Pancho" he was a chihuahua, so we gave him a mexican name. And growing up I had 2 cats one named "Boobie" and the other named "Milo". I loved all my pets.

  2. I have two cats. Jack O'Neil who was named by my husband after Jack O'Neil from Stargate. The other cat is named Mimi LaRue who was named after Tori Spelling's dog (I just loved the name and she looks like a Mimi)
    Your kitty is so cute and you are going to have so much fun!

  3. I have 3 dogs, Sassyfras Elizabeth, Calvin Eugene, and Barkley Alawishus. and one cat not by my choice I call Kung Foo Kitty. Your cat is very cute but looks like a Chubaca to me!! lol
