What's in a Name?
Submitted by: Kayla
My mother-in-law raises Persians, and her two Persians had kittens. They were so cute and as they grew, we were trying to find good names for them. One was a male, and the other was a female. Well, we figured out the girl's name was to be Gizzy Girl, but we just were stumped on what to call the other. One day, my husband and I were visiting, and the little guy was playing in the kitchen. Then we all heard a splash! We went to investigate, and there in the middle of the floor was a wet kitty. He had jumped right into the mop bucket of water that was getting ready to be used on the floor. Ever since then, we have called him Loco Lardie because he was just a crazy cat. My husband and I took Loco and Gizzy home, and they are the funniest cats you will ever encounter. They are our babies (along with our two sons).
Dipcen Caleb Makes a Friend
Submitted by: Jessica
One time, my cat Dipcen Caleb Sanders went over to our pond and took a sip of water. All of a sudden, I saw him run off, so I followed him. I came to find out that a fish jumped in his mouth! I saved the fish, and it is still alive.
Nellie Annie, the Great
Submitted by: Anonymous
I have a monkey (she acts like one) kitty named Nellie Annie. She does all sorts of weird things. One of the things she likes me to do when I get home on my lunch breaks is to turn on one of the animal channels. One day, we were watching "America's Funniest Pets." While watching this, a cat had a string tied to its tail and was chasing it. Nellie went up to the TV and was trying to attack it. Later that night, my husband and I were sitting on the couch talking, when all of a sudden Nellie took her "Cat Teaser Toy" (a very long, thin piece of cloth with a handle) and started carrying it in her mouth. She proceeded to the bedroom, came back in the living room with it tied around her tail, and started chasing it! My husband and I have no idea how she got it tied to her tail! She's a nut.

I have a 3-1/2-year-old white Persian named Zoey. She's deaf and sleeps about 23 1/2 hours per day. Well, one day after I had been taking the Christmas stuff down, my friend and I decided to go to dinner. When we got home I found my beautiful cat all curled up and asleep in a bowl. Needless to say, my friend and I have never laughed so hard. Since then that is her favorite place to sleep.
Rodents Be Gone
Submitted by: Maroo
Our cat, Oreo, is half Persian. He's cute, shy, very quick and loves chasing anything that moves across the floor. One night, my sister woke up as he jumped beside her. He suddenly opened his mouth and dropped something - his latest hunt: a mouse. It was if he was saying, "I've got something for you." The thought was nice, though. A few days after, he got rid of our mouse problem.
Zippy, the Food Bandit
Submitted by: Kay
My black Persian, Zippy, loves Italian food as much as Garfield in the funny paper. Once when my husband and I ordered pizza, we left the box on the kitchen counter during our meal. I returned to the kitchen for another piece of pizza to discover the rest of the pie on the floor. Most of the toppings were gone!
Another time, Zippy stole my husband's piece of chicken off of his plate when he left the table for a minute! When we try to take the food away from her, she runs with it.
Checking Out The Christmas Presents
Submitted by: Cheryl
One night, my mom and I were trying to get my kitten, Spunky, to do a cute picture pose because I wanted to get some pictures of him. Well, we were trying to find out how to pose him when he jumps up on the Christmas presents and starts posing, and mom's standing there yelling at him. It was rather chaotic, but Spunky quite enjoyed it!

My cat's name is K.C. (it stands for Kitty Cat). He is part Persian - black and white - and he is such a gomer. One day my mom and I were putting our Christmas tree up (winter of '99). My cat then was about 6 weeks old and weighed 1 lb. 3 oz. So he was climbing the tree, and I thought that was so weird.
Well, now my cat is 1 year old and 11 lbs. 4 oz. It's the next Christmas, and we were putting our tree up again. K.C. thought he was still a baby and was climbing it. Only now at 11 pounds, he was bending our tree branches. It was so funny. But the problem is we have the balls that shatter, and K.C. already shattered one. So now we have to scare him off so he won't get hurt. He is our baby, our big baby.
Bath Tub Blooper
Submitted by: Allyson
When my cat, K.C., was small, he would love to come in the bathroom and help (he thought). When I was taking a bath he got curious about the water. So when I was in there, he jumped in, but in a split second he jumped out. When I got out, he looked liked a drenched rat!

One day, I was home by myself when I heard my cat, Mary, meowing in a very strange way, like something was wrong with her. So I went down to see where she was. She had her favorite toy in her mouth and she was looking for someone to play with. Mary still cries that way to this day. I call it the death cry. It is so funny to hear her do it.
