A New Name!

Hey friends! I hope you're having a pawsome summer. Mawmee just got an update on me, and I knew my Catster friends would want to hear about it.

Guess what? My name is now Blackie! My new Daddy let his great niece give me a new name, and she thought Blackie would be purrfect! She is only about 4 years old, so she doesn't know anything about Vivien Leigh for whom I was originally named. So I think I'll officially be Blackie Vivien!

Here is what else I've been up to:

Blackie is a spoiled rotten little diva!!!! And quite a talker as well. She tolerates Buddy, but seems to follow him everywhere. She's always checking to see what he's up to. She rides around in her Daddy's wheelchair and jumps at the window just to tease the birds. The kids adore her and she is much loved.

If you cats will remember, Buddy is the big 'ole stinky dog that lives with me! I knew it wouldn't be long before I was the Diva and running the house!

Stay cool, and keep me in your purrs that I continue to do well in my home!

Hi, we mean Blackie!
Nice to hear some mews from you!
Our meowmy used to have dogs when she was furry young,and both of them were named Blackie...Blackie-Bushka and Blackie-Monster to be exact, MOL!
So your new name is fine for us! and you, too, of course!
Glad you are fitting in furry well!

Hallo Blackie! That is so nice that the little human got to name you. I told Mom she can call me whatever she wants to, as long as I have a home with her. I used to be Rocky. Glad that you're doing well and are in control of the dog.

Purrs and hugs,

Meowmy tells me she used to have this mousie look a like animal called a gerbil named Blackie. He went to the bridge shortly before meowmy adopted me. It's quite possible your bridge siblings have spotted him. He probably hanging out in a little strawberry which used to be his favorite toy/hideout. He loved it so much that when he went to the bridge in it and meowmy said that she burried him in it.

I was just asking my mama lady to find out what's going on with you! 2 days ago, i said, "mama-lady, what's going on with my black nubian queen, vivien?" I think it's cool that you're the Head Kitty over there. Keep it up Beautiful Black Vivien!

So glad you are doing well, Blackie, but you'll always be Vivien to me. It was so hard for your first mawmee to give you away, you know, and, of course, she made the right decision!

So happy to hear Blackie Vivien is enjoying command of her home! And just as it should be. I like the name Vivien better, but Blackie has a rather dangerous "Hey, don't mess with me or I'll make you walk the plank" sound to it too. Keep an eye on that Buddy, Blackie Vivien!

So good to hear you are doing well in your new home. We haven't had to deal with doggies in our house thank goodness.

My parents called me Blackie sometimes, too. They could call me whatever they wanted and I only responded if I chose to!

Hooray!! That's great news. So glad you're in a new home where you can florish. You have an awesome home! (It's great you're making nice with the doggie too.) Newman would be jealous at all the attention you're getting. Heh heh heh. This news put a big smile on everyone's faces! Thank you for letting us know.
