What's in a Name with Raz

Doesn't the Tabby Cat Club have the best events?  I want to thank Oui Oui and Abbi for hosting this fun event!!

I came to live with the Florida Furkids when I was a little dude....wasn't I cute????


I already had the name Razputin and Mom decided that she would see if it "fit".  I know we cats sometimes hide our real names from the humans and make them figure them out.  Anyway.............I really never answered to Razputin but I would turn around a little for Raz.  Mom says when she really wants my attention she says "RAZZIE!"  yeah....whatever.

Mom emailed my foster Mom about my name to ask if it had special meaning  and here's what she said:

"Well no, I just like to pick unusual names as they tend to get more hits on Petfinder. .  And he was really Rasputin which was a rather strange historic figure but I just liked the name and when I get a litter I want to use the same first letter so they will show up on Petfinder together, because they are siblings. . .and Raz just seemed to fit him, he was the runt but very friendly and playful. ."

So...........there it is.  Oh yeah....who are they calling a RUNT?  I'm a big boy!!!!

Being the runt of the litter isn't bad, it means you are little and cute and the humans go aweeeeeeeeee and squeeeee when they see you.

Raz, we like the story of your name! Our human would call you Razzle Dazzle sometimes, or maybe Spazzy Razzy if it fit -- she comes up with the WORST nicknames. So be thankful you only get Razzie. LOL.

We think Raz is a much easier name to remember that Razputin - what's more it suits you.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Love your name but will agree with you that you are no runt. Of all the nerve. I am so happy that you found your new home and we are now adopted bro and sis.

Heh,heh,heh... I'm bettin' there's a bit of Razputin in you that sneaks out now and then....I don't know why they said runt, you look like you had some long tall legs even back then. Humans... what do they know?

We like Raz much better than Rasputin. Rasputin was a crazy man. A cute name for a cute friend!

Thank Cod you are much better looking than the human Raz! We think you have a great name, and it has such possibilities for nicknames too - Razzle Dazzle, Jazzy Razzy, Razmataz, the Razmanian Devil. Aren't you glad you don't live with our mom! Thanks for all your help, for sharing your great story, most importantly, for humoring our mom.
