Re: now cat names


Well, George is a good solid sound and he must have decided he liked it and
took it as his own.
Seamus is always outside.  When I call him in it sometimes takes him awhile
to reply so I go through the littany of variations of his name, Seamus!
Shimmy!  Shim-shim!, Shimmy-Shimmy-Koh-Koh-Bop-Shimmy-Shimmy-Bop!,
Shim-Shimminy-Shim-Shimminy-Shim-Shim-Cherie! - Seamus!  He always comes
eventually.
