|I got Phoebe's name from the bird, the Eastern Phoebe.
One of the first days she had free run of the house after she was spayed I was driving myself crazy trying to come up with a name for her. I was sitting in front of the slider door in the dining room reading my literature textbook and Phoebe was sitting at the door watching birds. A bird came right up to the door and made a "fee-bee! fee-bee!" sound. Each time the bird chirped, Phoebe chirped back. I ran and got my Mom's bird book and it turned out the bird was an Eastern Phoebe. That is how she got her name, and her nickname is Peeps.
Furman is named after a kid I went to high school with who was a hippie., and kind of a wanderer. When this beautiful kitty showed up in my backyard I knew that was his name immediately, just changed the spelling from Fir to Fur, since he is a cat
Sassy had the name when she was adopted form the SPCA, and it fit her perfectly.
Polka Dot was originally a Pokey, but she had the cute dot on her nose so Pokey was changed to Polka Dot. She had a million nicknames, she also answers to Dorothy Jean, Dottie Rashada Jackarinda, Spot the Dot, etc, etc, etc...
Missy was named Melissa Callie because my brother and I both have M names with seven letters, I am not sure where the Callie came from.
