Yes! I would be just as sweet! In fact, my real name is Sweet Pea. Its the mom who started called me Oui Oui.
One of Goldie's first days as Sweet Pea.
During my days at the shelter, I was known as Goldie. That was a hard one to understand until years later my mom met the lady who named me at an adoption fair. It turns out I had litter mates - Opal, Onyx, Pearl - all named for jewels. Being the last one left, the reason for my name wasn't apparent.

When I got to my new home, I ran around for 20 minutes like a wild cat. It just felt SO good to be out of the cage. My new beans laughed, and the mom wanted to name me Jubilee, but The Girl insisted on Sweet Pea. It does fit me, I AM a sweet heart, after all!
Soon I would be known as Oui Oui.
I love to play with all kitties, and I like everyone. The mom started calling me Oui Oui because I never said "No" to a chance to play. When The Girl went away to collich, the mom worried about having someone to play with me, so she got me my very own kitty to play with, Mica Minnie Moo.

Our blog is named after me too, cause another of my nicknames is Twinkletoes. When I run, my legs just move faster, but my stride stays the same length, making my toes look like they are "twinkling". I hate to say it, but there are even more nicknames - Sugar Bee, Whippy Tail, and I really hate this new one, Tubby. Ugh!
