I am a junior in highschool, and i have always been very involved in my faith and my youth group. recently i have been struggling at school because my friend from school to accept religion. it has been very hard for me and i had started to feel pretty lonley. Over the weekend i went on this retreat with my church. My youth minister said something that was very touching. She said that "nothing can give you more love then christ. even if you persecuted he will always be there. Those who are hurting can feel his love deeper." It made me gain courage and it was just very touching. Even though this didn't happen on make a difference monday, my youth minister still made a difference in my life. she gave me hope.

Hello Scott and Kelly!  Thank you for all your work.  I always enjoy hearing you as it truly brightens my day.  I have two cats that are both black.  The first is a male cat that is 3 years old and his name is Shush-Yaz Monster Jump Saenz.  My mother would not allow me to name him Monster as that was the kind of personality he had when he was a baby.  However, his claws look like claws of a bear so I gave him the name Shush-Yaz which means little bear in Navajo.  I also had to include Monster and Chump because he is.

My little female cat who is 4 years old may be small but has a lot of fire in her.  I gave her an African name that means "he who greats with fire" becuase she does.  Her name is Entwylamayla Chismosa King Kong Saenz.  Chismosa is a spanish word for a girl who gets into everything even when it is not her business.  She does just that.  She gets is into everything and she acts like she is King Kong.

There you have it.  These are the names of my two babies.  Have a bless day!!!

We inherited a dog when we bought our ranch 13 years ago. Her name was Jezzabelle. We wondered why until one day we woke up and there were 50 or more dogs in our front yard one morning. Needless to say we realized where her name came from and we took her straight to the vet. She is coyote and chow and we still have her. She is 15 years old and the best dog ever. We call her Jezzi for short. she is now retired from the ranch as we moved back into town.

My family has had several pets with funny names. A few of whch are "No-name" and "Guess". But more recently my Beagle had puppies a little over 5 weeks ago and we decided that even though we aren't keeping all of them that for the time being we should name them accordingly. Their names are as follows: Fatso, Mo (she has a cow lick so it's like a mohawk), Lady, Prince Charming, Rocky, and Surprise. =]

My mom has always had clever names for her animals. Growing up she had a cat she named Boyfriend so when anyone asked if she had a boyfriend she could say yes and they'd drop the subject. My dad is a huge star wars fan so after they got married they got a dog and they named her Millie, short for Millenium Falcon, and a completely black cat named Vader, for Darth Vader of course. So when our cat had kittens I named two of them Peeka and Boo, and later, when I got my border collie I named her Hollie and our black and white kitten Ivy because I just love Christmas and always think of the Holly and Ivy.

We have 2 dogs that we named Story (Never Ending Story) and Legend (Mywatch Legend never ends)  and Story was bred to a dog named Hero.  The resulting litter born on memorial day this year we decided to temporarily name the puppies with names and words that result from the Stories of Heros.  The names we have come up with are Sully (Captian Chelsea Sullenberger who saved the plane after a birdstrike in the Hudson River) Amelia (Amelia Earhart), Sampson (sampson and delilah), Orion (Greek Mythology), Cassie (Cassie Bernall who was killed in the columbine high school massacre), King (Martin Luther King), Amos (bible prophet), Venture (most hero stories are ventures), Hercules (greek myth), Journey (the name of our church and of course most heros make a journey and also , this puppy will help fund our video venue that we are setting up to go to rural communities that do not have churces in eastern Colorado).

Okay, ours don't get very weird, but for a while, all our pets names started with "S"..
As in,
Skamper (dog)
Sassi (cat)
Smoeki (smokey, cat)
Sissi (cat)
Slipper (fish)

Now we've got different pets,
Skamper, Sassi, Jethro (haha, beverly hilbillies), Jasten (Jazzy), and as sad as it is, Slipper died last month. RIP.

Now, my cousin has multiple 'pets'.. she names everything in her house.. and she's 22... She has three pillows on her couch named Cecil Jacobs, Mercutio, and Coconut Dreamer... Go figure...

I would have to say, Jethro would be the wackiest out of all of those... I'm naming my next cat either Jethrine or Ellie Mae!!

My 8 year old son has wanted a cat more than anything in this world, but is highly allergic to them.  He has been taking allergy shots for 2 years now, and the doctor has granted permission for him to get a cat! We recently found 2 siamese mixes at the local animal shelter, one boy and one girl, so my daughter and I surprised him with the two of them! She named hers Violet, and we all waited to see what Jake would name his.  After a day of thinking, he came up with the perfect name! His cat is named "Skipito Bandito Bumbelito Freskito"! (He spelled it for me!) So, now we have Lilly (lab), Balto (husky), Rufus and Mr. Speedy (rats), along with Violet and Skipito Bandito Bumbelito Freskito!

My husband and I ended up with three cats, all rescued from various sources. We also run a fencing club, olympic sport not white pickets.

Anyway, he always wanted to name a dog ballestra, which is a fencing term for a jumping attack. Since we can't have a dog we transfered our love of fencing ont our cats.

We named our first cat Flesche (proper spelling fleshe/ pronounced fle-shay) which is French for arrow and is a fencing term for a type of attack. When she was a kitten she loved to jump at us with both feet flying through the air like an arrow. Kind of rough early in the morning, she liked to pounce as it were on our heads.

Our second cat is named Glisse (glee-say), also French and means to slide your opponents blade away, fairly appropriate for the second cat.

We named our third cat Tierce (teir-che), which is Italian for three. Unique and yet not at the same time. Fortunately the name is cooler in Italian than in English.

3 monthes later,  I got a white ferret and named him Loogie.  Booger and Loogie were the best of friends! They played together every chance they got. They both lived about 6 years and died within weeks of each other.  My guess is out of sorrow.

we named him that because we found a litter of kittens with a momma cat in the parking lot of a pepsico warehouse. many people that worked there, including my mom, took a couple kittens. because we knew we couldnt just leave them there on a construction site (at the time anyway). so my mom took two kittens, one we named Lucy and the other one Pepsi. i USED TO be able to hold Pepsi in on hand, but now it takes two hands PLUS my arms! now he weighs like 16 pounds! his fur is black with brownish/grayish stripes. he is part maincoon. my sister, Rachel, calls him 'the 2 liter pepsi'.

I fell in love with the Devon Rex breed of cat and visited a local breeder.  I met Luke Skywalker (we renamed Tucker) and Obi-Wan.  Their children named the cats after Star Wars characters because Devon Rex Kittens look like Yoda when they are young.  Every litter the kids had their favorites-first one Luke Skywalker, next Obi-Wan and so forth.  Basically got the number one and two of that litter.  We already had the name Tucker picked out and decided to keep the name Obi-wan.  Tucker is gone, but Obi is still quite the character.  Blue curly coat with huge green eyes.

As a kid I had many funny cat names.  Ug, Fuzz, Po Kitty.  But when my parents gave me permission to name a cat, I called him Johnny Carson.

When my daughter was 3, she got a dog for her birthday.  Her birthday is April 27th and when she saw the puppy, she said his name was going to be 27.  I said no way but when we brought him home, everyone called him 27. We had 27 for 14 years.

I was listening to the radio in the car when you were talking about crazy pet names yesterday so I didn't get a chance to write to you.

Palm Sunday 2009 our outside cat had 4 kittens and we kept them all.

We named them Calli Marie Toulouse and Berlioz the latter 3 we named after the Disney Aristo Cats.

We started out having 4 cats but now we have 8.

We call Calli Peggie Sue,Peg, hopalong because her back leg didn't develop all the way so she only has 3 legs. ;)

Okay, so for my youngest brother's birthday one year we got him a black kitten. I bugged him for about a week or so about what he was going to name her. He came up with this name: Black Magic Willie (aka BMW).

currently have 5 neutered male cats. Their individual stories are as follows:
Sammy, will be celebrating his 14th birthday on 4th of July. Was found as an unclaimed stray on my friends garage roof  right before the fireworks started. He was already declawed,therefore he was unable to climb up the garage himself, her garage roof was pretty high up, no where near a tree or an electric wire,or a fence, so how he got up there is anyone's guess.
Next is my cat Romeo. He also was an unclaimed stray, he is a purebred Snowshoe who followed me onto the city bus. Romeo was taken to the local stray ward, but his humans never came in to take him home. The shelter employees guesses him to be 8 months old at the time, when they counted back 8 months from the date when I came in to officially adopted him, hs birthday turned out to be the same exact year and  date I had my own "spay" surgery.  Romeo will be turning 13 yrs old on Aug 25th, and he is a real LOVER BOY!
Smokey was only 8 weeks old when I rescued him from a super cruel teenager who lived up the street from me in my old neighborhood.I actually caught the 17 year old teenager in his front yard chopping off Smokey's tail. The teens parents were home, knew what their son was doing, but they never tried to stop him from doing this very cruel act. I immediatly called the police, they came out, and after I showed the officer the garbage can where he could find Smokey's tail, the officer arrested not just the teenager, but his parents also got arrested, all 3 of them went to jail for several months and were fined and charged with animal cruelty. They were ordered by the judge never to own any pets ever again...no matter which state they decide to live. The day they got out of jail, they had the nerve to round up 26 more cats from free animals to good home ads (newspapers,pet stores, vet clinics,the Internet,etc)and were caught once again having all those cats, went back to jail, their fines were all tripled, jail time was doubled,& since I was a cat rescuer, I was able to take all of those 26 cats and I had them all s/n the next morning and eventually found them great new loving forever indoor only homes. Smokey is now 9 years old, doing much better, he is a blue-colored Chartneux. He sleeps with me every night, and when he wants to eat, he will come find me and say very clear in English cat language "momma- right MEOW, (momma feed me right now!)
Sylvester is a black & white purebred Rag-A-Muffin. He is now 3 years old, and another lover boy, who follows you around like he is your shadow. I gave him the name after the cartoon cat with the same name. He also was a former unclaimed stray.
The next one is named Squeakers. I found him when he was aprox 2 months old, he just turned 1 yr old. He is orange and white long haired, and he is blind, but without looking at his eyes, one would never know he is blind- he is just as active as any other kitten-cat, if not more so. For example, he is known to come flying across the room and landing on my back- with his sharp swords (claws)clinging into my bare skin. OUCH!!!
I gave him the name Squeakers because when he mews, he really "SQUEAKS."

A few years back, while still active in kitten-cat rescue ministry, I had rescued a young kitten who was only 4 months old but was already half way thru a pregnancy! (I orginally thought she had worms so I took her to the vet for treatment for them. To my surprise, she was not full of worms but was pregnant.)Her pregnancy was confirmed by 2 different vet clinics, one vet clinic even took x-rays showing she had 5 babies inside her womb. Both vets guessed her to be 4 months old, & both guessed her same extimated due date.
I decided to name her "Baby-Mom." She was only 4 months old, so there fore she was still a baby, but even at that very young age, she was about to become a mom. Thus this became her name. Sadly, a few days before her expected delivery date, she suffered a misarriage, & lost all 5 of her little ones. The vet told me that miscarriage was really a blessing in disguise because if she would have delivered either naturally or by C-section, she would not have survived herself as she was much too young to become a mom. I had her spayed right away. She since found a great new home and her new family loves her to pieces !

Tippy was an all black dog with white tips on her toes and tail. And since she half howled instead of barked, we called her Tippy Roo. But we lengthened her name to Tippica Roodolph, AKA Wrap-Around-Dog (part malimute so she slept w her nose under her tail)

Well my dad gave my mom a german shepherd for their 20th anniversary and named it "Zwanzig", which is 20 in German, but we just call him Ziggy!

P.S. In Germany they pronounce their "W's" as "V's" so...

We have several critters, but my two that have the wackiest names are my calico cat- Crazy Daisy Duke, and our Great Dane who we named after our fave comedian - The Great Dane Cook.  I also have two Sugar Gliders that I named Mick and Jaggar, like the singer, no particular reason, haha, just thought it was cute for them!  We are blessed with many furry critters, 4 kitties ( all who are rescuees), 3 dogs, 2 Sugar Gliders, 1 Chinchilla,  and oodles of fish in a 75 gallon fish tank.  We also have a guinea pig- CinnaSug because when we first bought him, his hair looked like a mix of Cinnamon and Sugar, and a hamster- who's name is Kamikazee because he tries to dive out of our hands all the time.
We love our critters around here Smile

I have had a few...when I was a kid our dog was "Sparky" (my dad was an electrician). Later I had a litter of bunnies, we had one named "Trauma" cause the dog traumatized her. My ex worked on commercial glass so we had a "Glazier-Belle" we got "Butterfly" the cat next (it looked like a butterfly landed on her head). Then "Scooter-bug" the bunny, then "Foo-yung" the bunny (she looked Chinese(Please don't get offended). Next came another dog "Mira-belle" (but say it like you have a really bad southern accent - mirror-belle)I temporarily adopted a couple of kittens the black & white one my daughter named "Oreo". Needless to say we enjoy unique pet names!

I have a white long haired cat with a black tail and I named her DipStick.  It looks like someone took her by the tail and dipped her in a can of paint up to her butt.  She has black around her butt hole and only on the very bottom of her back feet.  All the rest of her is white.
