and she shall be called homo

our new kitten has some interesting markings. she has an M on her forehead.

she also has an O on each side. brooke insists she has an H on one of her sides too, but i haven't quite found that one yet. maybe if i squint my eyes & tip my head to one side when she's running past me at top speed i'll catch a glimpse of it.

in any case, i was suggesting that since she has two O's and an M, maybe we should change her name to MOO. brooke thought that was funny but then told me that nim also has an H so we need include that in her new name. she tried out HOOM and MOOH, but then she realized that those letters could also spell HOMO. and of course, that's the one that struck her fancy. so now she's calling the cat HOMO. chris tried to dissuade her by telling her that was too masculine for a girl kitty, but brooke thinks it'll make a perfect nickname for her girl.

i love this little homo!


  1. I am sure this couldn't possibly be problematic. :)

  2. You have a cat named Homo! This just makes me giggle!

  3. I'm glad she's an indoor cat. The neighbors might call the police if they heard you outside at night calling your cat to come in. As for me, I think I'll stick with calling her Nim.

  4. yeah, i'm sticking w/ calling her nim too. but it's pretty funny to hear brooke snuggling her baby & stroking her sweetly while murmuring, "my sweet little homo! i just love you so much!"


don't let me be the only one doing the talking around here. spill your guts!
