I’ve been adopted by a cat named Pyewacket — 15 Comments

  1. OMG…Do you believe in signs? WOW sometimes the universe decides whats right and makes it so. Good luck with things, she is a cutie

    • LOL! That’s a good one! But what comes out the back end smells A LOT like skunk. Maybe I should have named her Pepe le Pew.

  2. How nice, to be chosen like that!

    Loved that you had a Checkers dream…

    I still dream about the Golden Retriever I lost when I was 19 (32 years ago), and I’m always so happy when I do. It’s like she’s paying me a visit.

    • I’m still amazed at how it all happened. Got to love how the Universe works!

      It was wonderful to have the dream about Checkers, and just the night before the new kitty adopted me made it seem like she was giving her “ok”. Pye has virtually the same markings as Checkers, but with short hair. And here I was thinking of adopting an orange tabby or a calico kitty.

  3. Very cool,I had a cat named Pyewacket when I was a kid. She was a Calico. This is the first time I’ve heard the name since. Very happy for you!

    • Welcome, Matthew! That’s great! I’ve only ever heard the name in the movie. It’s good to know someone who also named their kitty Pyewacket.

      For the first time in many years of having pets, I’ve finally started researching names online before naming the pet my usual “Fluffy” or “Boo”. I almost named her Magic, but then found the name Pyewacket and felt it fit. I’m getting a lot of “What??” or “Huh?” and sometimes from people whom I thought would know the reference.

  4. Congratulations on the new copilot/navigator! Caution: people, who go to Kansas, generally die an early death due to boredom. Your future posts will be about crop reports. Sell blood, a kidney, anything to keep from going.

    • Thanks! LOL re: Kansas. It’s not a done deal yet because of a couple serious glitches that I’m trying to work out. Meanwhile, I’m applying for jobs in non-traditional ways. I’d kind of like to keep my kidneys.

  5. I saw that ball of twine! But, I remember there being a small “2nd” scratched into the sign because another state had since overcome the twinage. Hmm, longtime reader, you never know what will pull out the lurkers.
