What's in a Name - Moosey

Hi everybuddy!  It's me, Moosey!
When the people at PAWS first rescued me from a kill-shelter, one of the first things they noticed was my size.  It's not always easy to tell from our blog posts, but I am taller and stockier than lots of other kitties.  So the PAWS folks named me "Moose."  Of course, after I was there for a while, all my human friends saw that I was also a very nice boy, who loved people and got along well with other kitties.  At some point, everybuddy started adding the -y to my name, because they said I was cute, and a sweet and gentle giant.  Mommy and Daddy fell in love with me while they were volunteering at PAWS, and adopted me.  And they thought my name was just right for me.  So we kept it! :)

Thanks to my awesome pals Oui Oui and Abbi for holding this fun event!  I'm looking forward to learning how everybuddy else got their names!

Big hugs and headbonks,

Moosey :)

That'sa nice story. My previous name was snowbelle. When momma adopted me, she changed it to sushi. She said she doesn't eat japanese but finds sushi as a pet's name quite cute so sushi it is. =)

We think your name fits you well!

The human's Chumley was named that by the shelter staff, presumably because he was so cuddly and "chummy." She didn't change his name, it was perfect. So sometimes we do get the right names from shelter staff!

Like your name - it suits you, and an unusual story of how it came to be.

Moosey, your story is as sweet as you are! As our mom was reading your story, she remembered one of her first boyfriends was called Moose. But she thinks you are sweeter and handsomer. Purrs & thanks for sharing your story!
