The Name Meme


We've been tagged for the name meme by the two beautiful Bengal kitties, Starbuck and Torrey, and the Maine Coon, Sebastian, to tell you all how we got our names.

Well, Mr. Chen's name was the name he had at the Morris Animal Shelter. It was given to him by his foster home. Ollie was so named because mommy and daddy joked around that if they ever had a bean baby, they would name it Oliver Oliver. When mommy and daddy were trying to think of names for both of us, they had made a long list with names like Salt and Pepper, Rock and Roll, Tweedy and Van Halen, and many many more. But, they just couldn't bring themselves to change Mr. Chen's name. It just suits him perfectly! So, Ollie was chosen because they did not have to pick out names that matched or went together since Mr. Chen was keeping his.

Thanks for tagging us, Starbuck, Torrey, and Sebastain - that was fun! We're so sorry it took us a while to play along. Mommy has been pretty out of it. We're working on training her to help us keep up with our friends better.

We now would like to tag the following three kitties:
Kimo & Sabi, and Luna Or, any kitty that hasn't played along already.
