What's In A Name?!

I normally don't post twice in a day but I thought this was appropriate. Most of you have commented before on how funny you think it is that our cats name is Fishy. Well he wasn't always named that. When I found him 5 1/2 years ago (He was only 4 weeks old) I decided to name him "Lucky" because he was certainly lucky to be alive. Well when I loaded he and Emma up to move cross country with Kyle his personality started to show more and more.

One night in our apartment Kyle and I were talking about his favorite episode of Sesame Street from when he was a kid. Here is the clip:


Haha! Kyle started doing the fish call and the cat came running into the room. We thought it was a fluke so he did it again once the cat left the room and sure enough he came running again. Since that day he has been Fishy.


Have a great weekend everyone!

  10. Thank you for explaining. I had wondered about his name too.

    By the way, that is my favorite old school Sesame Street episode too! I'm a little bummed watching the new school version now with my son ... it's changed waaay too much. Maybe it's time to break out the Netflix so he can enjoy the ones I did as a kid?!?

  14. Hahahaha, that is so funny! It is like my friend´s daugther that called her cat "come here" because her parents kept saying that to her, so she repeated it to the cat and the cat only listened to that name! hahaha
