We found two kittens on the side of the road at one stage (bout a year ago) they had been dumped, and not being completely heartless we took them in.
One we called Emo, because she was really sad all the time, and tended towards picking fights with larger things (now she is really lovely so the name was shortened to Mo)
The other 2 had stripes so we called the one with the stripes on her face Ticki (sort of like fairys for the moari people of NZ, they have swirling facial tattoo) and the other became Cheshire because she has big stripes on her back and tail like the cat from Alice.
My big black boarder collie irish setter mix is named Salem. (Yes after Sabrina the teenage witches cat.) Her sister a white and black boarder collie is named Kenai after one of the indian brothers in Brother Bear. (Yes I know all the humans in that movie were indians ...I'm going on the premise there that not everyone here has seen that.
CPM: isnt that one of the bits in the bible? with the jews n the desert n stuff? i only remember that cos i think it had a part about how wives arent allowed to kick their husbands enemies in the hanging weakpoints
Apsu (the river of the underworld)
Akuma (Demon with a flaming head, fiery eyes and swords)
Puck (aka Robin Goodfellow is a mischievous nature spirit in pagan mythology)
Persephone (married Hades and is queen of the Underworld)
Bast (ancient solar and war goddess, means "devourer"
Interesting, Tigerlily, that you picked Bast as one of the names for a female rat, as that belongs to the ancient Egyptian cat goddess(didn't know it meant "devourer", for which I thank you for that tid-bit of information), and might, at first, seem inappropriate to give to a member of a species that has traditionally been one of those devoured by Bast's children.
But, then again, I suggested the name of a tom-cat once owned by an acquaintance of mine, so, in thinking about it, your suggestion doesn't seem that off after all.
See, that's why I offer no explanation. Isn't it cooler to try to guess whether I was referring to the bible, body parts or both than realizing it was just a throw away line from The Big Lebowski?
ha never seen the movie, but thanks to you i have learnt something new and moderately interesting. odds are i lost something important because of it, but shit happens, as they say, every day if youhave good fibre.
