|Whaddaya think? Do I look like a Wendell?|
Over the years, I got a bunch of nicknames from Mom: Turkey Butt (because she thinks I look like a cooked turkey from behind. She's nuts.), Stinky Pete (because I would do something like use the litter box or fart or eat smelly cat food and then jump on top of her and also that was a character in Toy Story 2), Baby Boy (because she refuses to accept that I am a MAN), etc.
In 2006 she got really into the movies of Billy Wilder and my name was Billy for, like, a day.
But lately, guys. . . lately, she's been calling me Bruce. And it's really annoying.
It all started about a month ago when she went to see a new musical called Matilda. And one of the characters in the show. . . his name is Bruce. And Bruce is chubby and likes to eat a lot and for some unknown reasons this reminded Mom of me. And to make it worse, there's a SONG. The song is also called "Bruce" and it's about how Bruce is forced to eat an entire chocolate cake. And Mom thinks it's very catchy and that a lot of the lyrics apply to me (especially the part about my tummly-tum). So she sings it all the time. . . usually to me.
Of course, it doesn't matter what she calls me. In 11 1/2 years, I have never answered to any name, ever. --
Interesting story and you do indeed look like a Wendell.
Wendell has gravitas, it suits you.
What a delightful story, and music, too! You aren't the only one who's called names that are annoying. Try Piggy, Abbers and Brown Clown! Purrs, Abbi.
LOL! Wendell sounds better than Bruce, we think. :-)
We'll answer to our names...when there are treats or snuggles involved!
You are a Wendell for sure. Loved all of your other names too.
We love the name Wendell!!!

I think Wendell is a GREAT name! And it suits you, too. Aren't the humans funny with all of these alternate names they come up with? :)
You are a very cute Wendell too! Bruce, well, we aren't too sure about that, or Turkey Butt either. Guess we'll have to wait for the tock shots to decide.
Pee S. Thanks for posting!
Hmmm. I suppose as long as you get called for supper all is well... well! MOL Purrs Wendell
Me too think that Wendell suits your purrfect !
Tell your human to fotget ALL about the name Bruce !!
We likes Wendell best. But we guess Bruce is OK too. Maybe it could be your middle name. Wendell Bruce has a nice ring to it.
On Facebook she changed my name to "Wendell Bruce [and then my last name]" Sigh.
