If my cats had online dating profiles

Props to Helene for this post idea. I love to talk about my cats but I don't really talk about them, so I thought I would let you all get to know them better (you're welcome).




And for funsies (I ran out of space) here are the stories of their names:

Penny

KC: 'we should name her something easy and quick, like Penny'. Me: 'Ok'... 5 minutes later 'Penny it is'.

Chelsea

We had Chelsea for like a day before we settled on her name. We almost went with Marie (Aristocats) and something else I don't remember. I looked up, saw a photo of us at a Chelsea game (KC's favourite soccer team) and suggested it, because her eyes were blue. KC called her 'squirt' for the first 6 months or so, glad that didn't stick.

Millie

Really wanted to stick with the 'e' ending. I can't remember what we 'almost' named her, but we called her that for a few hours and then I was like 'nope, don't dig it'. Suggested Millie, KC wasn't a fan, but I kept going. Got it from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, naturally.


So there you, they are the cats behind the blog. I really love these little rascals, they are my family and they love me more than I deserve. I'm thankful for my babies. We've had such good luck finding the perfect fit for our family that we are definitely done now, don't want to disrupt what little balance we have. They like each other most times, love KC and I almost all the time and rarely cause issues. They sit in my lap and across the laptop while I am trying to blog, so basically they are bloggers too.

  2. What a fun idea! And 7 Brides for 7 Brothers was such an awesome movie!!! I have an aunt named Penny, for pretty much the same reason. When we got our dog, I made a huge list of potential names, but then his name at the shelter was Luke, and he really was too whiny to be "Han Solo" so we ended up just keeping it.

  3. OMG! I love that Chelsea loves the car! How funny! I actually picked my cat at the shelter because he was the quietest. It was all a show, I tell you! He wanders the house day and night "mama, mama, mama" (That's how his meow sounds). Sigh. ha

  5. Awwhhh I love this idea! Might have to make a little profile for my dog. They're all so lovely. Millie sounds like quite the character haha I know what you mean about balance. We only have one dog, but I really don't know how well she'd adjust to another dog and I don't want to mess with our arrangement as I'm quite pleased with how it is.

  14. I feel like an idiot because I didn't realize you had THREE cats! I have seen you post their pics on Instagram but always thought it was the same cat (or maybe there was a pic where two of them were together?) Anyway LOL at their dating profiles and I'm glad you shared their name origins because I was going to ask!! ha!

  35. Omg I love this! So dang cute! That is too funny Chelsea likes car rides! Usually cats hate them! My cat is the biggest purrer! You literally look at him or he looks at you and starts purring! Hes purring super loud right now because hes sitting behind my head on the couch.... and I am not even looking at or touching him.. hes so weird! Ill have to tell Louie to find these hott chicks on the dating website ;)

  39. This is awesome! My cat is such a sassy fat alcoholic I don't think anyone would be interested in her dating profile. Your cats are so beautiful!

  40. Love this post and your kitties! So cute! Thanks for sharing :)

  41. They are so precious!!! Penny's whiskers wow!! And Chelsea's eyes! and Millie's thick coat. Three of the cutest cats Ive ever seen no joke. My aunt in Australia (one of my uncles ex-wives) has a reeeeeaaaaly fat and fluffy cat that I actually loved (but didn't love me duh) you cats make me think of her!

  42. This gets me so excited for my link-up. I want to read about ALL the fur babies! I want to snuggle them too, but if I have to settle for reading about them...such as life (see what I did there.) I love the story of Chelsea's name. After all, her eyes are Chelsea Blue!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lol, I love this! Your little babes are so cute...I want to snuggle all of them!

    ReplyDelete
  44. hilarious. love that you did this for your cats! such little personalities!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is absolutely hilarious! Please write more things like this! I should do this for my dogs! I went to go get a cat a year ago and walked out with a dog, but here's to hoping I get one, one day!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes to Chelsea (Eric's favorite soccer team as well). Yes to Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (I LOVE that movie...made Eric watch it, he wasn't excited about it). And yes to this whole post. Hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is such a good idea! I might have to steal it. I can't believe you have a cat who enjoys car rides! Every cat I've had has despised any sort of transportation (although my last cat could be soothed by hearing John Mayer...). The only thing missing from Millie's profile pic is a snifter of fine cognac. lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is hilarious! YES MARIE FROM ARISTOCATS! I love it. I loved that movie!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Cute profiles! Chelsea is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love this!! They are all SO cute! The picture of them all sleeping is so sweet!! Chelsea likes going in the car!! I always put Eddie in his carrier for car rides, but he does not seem to love it, he usually gets all puffy and gets into the corner of it. Though he did seem to relax some during our long cross-country drive.

  51. This is awesome! I want to do it for our dogs! Animals are totally family and I'd be so lost without ours. Please give me more on the fire though. Seems dangerous!

  52. Crazy cat lady.

    hehehe, I kid.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your cats are so adorable! Mine are definitely family members as well. Life without them would be so sad!

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is SO cute! haha. Did you get them all at separate times? We just got a new cat and our first is NOT having it! Do you have any tricks for getting them to like each other??

Thank you so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger :-) If you are here to be a troll, please kindly bugger off. Thanks!
