What's in a Name?

Today's special event is What's in a Name and it's hosted by our pal Oui Oui.


When Mom got me from the rescue they just called me Buff Kitten.  As soon as I came home with her, Mom went to work to figure out what my "real" name was.  Her other kitties had names like Khartoum, Kashmir and Baschert and the kitten who went ORB just before she got me was named Tabriz.

Out came the New Age Baby Book...


After looking at all the names and seeing my response, she found the purrfect name - Tamir!  It is a Hebrew name and it means Tall and stately like a Palm tree.  Who knew we would live in Florida one day which would make it even more purrfect?

Don't I look tall and stately in my official Cat Show photo taken by the great Chanan?  I sure hope Gracie is impressed!!


You know what's even better about this post?  Mom found my adoption papers and now I know my Gotcha Day!!!  It's June 7!  Too bad she missed it but we're going to celebrate it on our blog today anyway!!

We think that is the purrfect name for you in so many ways! Your mom must have been inspired. Concats on finding out your Gotcha day, now you have another reason to celebrate.

We think your official Cat Show photo is stunning! You certainly look every bit your name in it, Tamir! :)
