Our Little Cow Kitty has a Name!

DSC_1035

Marcia was the lucky winner who got to select the name for our little cow kitty. Im Marcia's words, here's her selection and how it came to be.....

When I first saw this adorable little guy -- all I could think of was Oliver Hardy -- don't ask me why as the black eyebrow mark would seem best suited to Groucho Marx. So, of course, once you have a name in your head, it's really impossible to think of anything else! Well, my dad loved Laurel and Hardy, so I think I am going to go with Oliver for the first name -- and I expect he will be a bundle of laughs (and exasperation) for his new owners (as I believe Oliver was to Stan in the old movies!). And, in honor of Opal and her now famous "5 pennies," let's go with Nicholas as a middle name (even though the derivation of nickel has nothing to do with Nicholas) -- so.... introducing Oliver Nicholas Furman to the world!



Nice work, Marcia! Excellent choice. Oliver is an outstanding physical comedian, so it suits him so perfectly!


Have a good morning, everyone. I'll be back later today to announce another name.

  4. I love the name! He definitely looks like an Oliver. I also love the 3 little polka dots on his little nose! :D

  5. Oooh good choice Marcia!

    The little polka dots make him look even more like a cow kitty. <3

  7. Wonderful name for a remarkable kitty! Hurray for Oliver and a big cheer for the special recognition of Opal (who I'm sure will learn how her five pennies contributed to the naming process). Oliver Nicholas...you are, little one!

  10. I love giving my cats a middle name, too. I've had Dusty Rabbit (because her fur was like a rabbit's), Peanut Butter (for obvious reasons), and Cinder (dare I say it..) Ella.

    Just can't think of anything to go with "Smudge" though.. poor Smudge.

    A friend of mine was always jealous of their middle names, since she did not have one. :)

    Love the moniker on this little guy, seems to fit so very well.

  11. What a wonderful name and I love the Opal reference in his middle name. His little noise is so adorable...

  14. He is shocked, SHOCKED I tell you to have such a distinguished name.

  15. Of course he reminded you of Oliver Hardy. His nose dots look like a little Ollie mustache. Those "Don't ask me why.", gut-level, 1st impressions tend to be spot on. Great call!

  16. @ anon, I think "muffin" is the only possible middle name for Smudge.

  17. THANKS, other 'Anon'! That is a good middle name for my Smudgie.. :)

  18. Never fear, Marcia. My tux boy was named Groucho for his little nose mustache. Mr. Marx does not go unremembered in cat-dom (as if this were a concern for him?).

    Yay for little Oliver Nicholas!

  19. Thanks all for the good words! And, now that I see a new picture of him, he looks even more like Oliver Hardy with the nose dots like Ollie's mustache -- as Nanette pointed out above! I think the black and white cow kitty also reminded me of the old black and white films before color took over!

    Anyway, I just love this little guy and just wish I was in the Tacoma area to give him a forever home! He has stolen my heart! But then, I say that about every bunch of kitties!

  20. Awww, one of my fosters is named Oliver. I call him Ollie Bear. This Oliver looks like the cutest of the bunch! (But don't tell the other ones I said that.)
