Meme - How we got our names.

We wuz tagged by our furrend Beezer about how we got our names.
When the Beans went to the farm to choose us, there were three of us ginger and white babies and a calico girl. Dad went furr me (Eric) rite away cuz I wuz the biggest fattest baby. Mum had a harder job choosing cuz Flynn and the uvver ginger and white wuz identical. She chose Flynn in the end cuz he snuggled into her neck and purred and purred.
When they got home dad asked mum if she had any ideers what to call us, and jokingly she sed Eric and Derek. Dad sed that's grate names! but mum sed that we would git confused cuz the names wuz too similar. Dad sed that he wuz going to call me Eric anyway cuz he thought it sooted me. He sed I wuz a big baby so I would haf to be Big Eric. My furrends often call me Big E cuz I am 21 lbs of mancat. Sometimes when we are walking in the feelds wiv mum, she sez come on Eezy Beezy or Eezer Beezer, so I hope she duzn't confuse me wiv our furrend Beezer.
Mum had to fink of a name furr my brofurr then, and she wuz looking up the meaning of names in a book. She looked up the name Flynn, and in Ireland it means flame haired. Well she thought ginger is near enuff to being flame haired, so that's how he got his name.

Your names are just right for you both. You are a big dude, Eric. How big are you, Flynn? You look like you could play some rugby, too.

OH MY GOODNESS! My momma wants to reach into the computer and steal those two baby kittens. Ha, ha momma, those aren't babies any more. Those are my friends Eric and Flynn.

My momma's stepmomma's (who did most of the hard job of raising her) maiden name is Flynn. My stepgrandmomma had 11 brothers and sisters. So my momma has tons of Irish Flynn cousins all over California. So when momma reads your blog she feels like she's with family.

I can see Eric's ginger nose furs were there as a baby. And Flynn my mom says your round eyes make you one Cutie Patootie (she calls us that all the time). Oh Gosh, now she's putting kisses all over the screen. Duck, NO, RUN!
MOM, stop droolin over my friends, it's not polite!
"Ok guys, I'm sorry. It's just very hard to not kiss your sweet pics as babies and adults. I bet the beans and women cats want to do the same when they see you. You two are just very sweet and charming. But I do have work to do, so I'll leave Tyler to finish his visit. Bye Eric and Flynn."

Actually I better go take a nap myself. I've been awake for over an hour now. This is quite a lot of blogging for one day.

Thanks for your name story.
This is such fun hearing where everycats name came from!!! You were adorable kittens!

Purrrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow

We think you guys have great names. It's important for Mancats to have manly names!
You two were such cute little babies! I didn't realize you were the same age. I kept thinking Eric was older.
