Quick naming update on the new kitten in our family - the kitten previously known as Katie. Her new name is Richard.
Why Richard for a female kitten? you might ask. Well, one fine recent day my wife and daughter were watching some episode of Gilmore Girls for the 500th time and the two of them kept shouting out 'Richard' and cracking up laughing. I went out to the living room to see what was up, something to do with Lorelei's dad Richard I guess. And the kitten came dashing by around the same time.
So, of course, lightbulb - kitten should be called Richard.
It has also lead me to an overhaul of almost all the pet names in the house. The kitten is Richard, the small speedy gonzalez dog is 'Not Richard', and the huge Black Labrador keeps his same name, Baz.
I think that's a great upgrade to the pet naming system.
