They Call Me...

Sorry! I promise I didn't forget to name Newbie, just got a wee bit distracted and didn't get around to telling you all. I do have a variety of good excuses I promise! ;-) So without further adieu....
-
Drum roll please....
His name is Tybalt!! Most of the time we call him Tibby or Mr Tibbs (in our best Sydney Poitier accent of course!). Jon thought of his name as I wanted a good Shakespearean name that I could also get a cute nickname from. Tybalt was mentioned and Jon's theatre training reminded him that there was a Tybalt character in another play who was known as 'The Prince of Cats'. Perfect.
Tibby, has totally fit in around here. It's almost as if he's been here from the get go. Mina and him play extremely well and while he's still a bit jumpy when the dogs get revved up, he doesn't mind the dogs being near him as long as they're pretty calm. In fact, Louie loves his Tibby especially at night when they both like to get on the bed to sleep. Louie can even groom him a little bit! Soooo cute. Tybalt is a great addition, he's healthy, growing well, and handles most situations with ease. Love, love that I found this little guy and he has become a great member of my little 'family'.

All the best for Tibby and her admirers. She'll have the dogs fetching her cheeseburgers soon.

Dedene- Merci! He's a great cat, and so laid back. I'm sure he'd be more than okay getting those dogs to retrieve some cheeseburgers lol.

Sarah- Thank you! He reminds me of Kuro a bit. He's lovable and sweet like him!

That's right! Tybalt is the Prince of Cats in Romeo & Juliet. Perfect name! But I have to say that Mr Tibbs sounds so serious... love it! Serious kitty.

Habebi said...

Sara Louise- yes! It's good to have cute and serious nicknames. He is more of serious cuddler and playful kitten though ;)
