What's the inspiration behind the names of your cats?
Bruce is named after Bruce Banner. Though one time he walked into the room just as Alfred was calling Bruce Wayne “Master Bruce” and ever since he’s pretty sure that’s what people should be calling him. He now refers to his dad as Dadfred.
Brooke Davis is named after the character on One Tree Hill. Our house even has a red door so she’s the girl behind the red door.
Eric Catman is named after Eric Cartman from South Park.
Thomas. Oh sweet baby Thomas. My husband and I were trying to pick a name when he suggested Thomas. His reasoning was to name him after Thomas O’Malley from The Aristocats. My thirsty brain automatically thought of Thomas Gibson as soon as my husband said the word Thomas. I kept that thought to myself until we 100% decided on the name. After that I happily informed him that I just named my son after the man that plays Aaron Hotchner. Sometimes when I’m frustrated at something Thomas did I’ll be like “Thomas Gibson Jr!!” My husband hates when I do that. 😂
They’re my babies! Brooke and Bruce are Siberians and they’ll be 6 on August 13th. Eric and Thomas were rescued from my parent’s neighbors on my 30th birthday. We had to guess their birth date with what little info the neighbor had. So they will be celebrating their first birthday on July 29th.
I could probably talk about them all day so I’ll stop there. 😆
“Animals, Theo once told her while setting to paper the last verses of his enchantment, are very attuned to magic. She watched as he methodically fiddled with the inside latch of the box and slipped the piece of paper into it neatly. From the stable near them, she could hear Bae growl and when she looked back at him she could see him shaking his head erratically, his horns bumping hardly into the wooden walls. Reaching out desperately for his arm she tugged harshly to gain his attention, but Theo merely continued to fiddle with the latch. When he was satisfied he closed the box with a click and set it in the hole they had dug earlier, then covered it up with dirt. When it was completely submerged in the ground, he patted Kore’s tiny hand and motioned for her to listen carefully. At first she wasn’t sure what to look out for, the silence being the only thing that was keeping them company, but then she realized: there was no more growling anymore.”
