I visited a few mosaics a couple weeks ago and was introduced to some family pets which I thought was quite cute, so I decided to do the same.
Calliope (aka Cali - the calico cat, approx. five years old) is so named because of her tendency toward loquaciousness. I've never had a conversation with a cat before, but you totally can with this one. She answers you back. And it sounds like words. Kinda freaky. She follows me everywhere, sits on me every time I hold still and kills all the mice, bugs and spiders that are anywhere around. Very handy!
Spudnik (aka Little Spud - rescued stripey monster, approx. 6 months old) was so named because......um...The Ventures? It sounded good? Who knows? Spud was found abandoned in a friend's neighbor's barn and was completely wild when he was brought home. I'm not sure I wouldn't call him wild now (haha), but he's very cute and snuggly and makes you forget what a brat he was five minutes ago.
Queen Isabella (aka Izzy - English Springer Spaniel, approx. 15 years old) was so named because of a History Channel program being fresh in the mind. Izzy was the cutest puppy who ever lived and grew into a clever, loyal and loveable friend. She now forgets how old she is and still runs about like a pup when her old legs will cooperate with her enthusiasm. She hates raccoons (because they eat her food, haha!) and once killed a skunk in front of the house the day before a big party. Lovely. Just lovely.
