Wordless Wednesday

We don't know if we have ever shared this photo with our friends before. . . Teri lost her to intestinal cancer, and in this photo, she already was a grannie cat. 

This is Teri's very first kitty! Her name was Cascais (pronounced Cash-Caish) and she was named after a pretty beach town in Portugal. 

But this will make you smile.  .  the way Teri got her to sniff this flower is by rolling up a leaf of fresh Nip and sticking it inside, hahameow! Of course, she didn't let her nibble on it, as it's a Tulip and they are toxic to kitties!

Teri's family lived there for a while and when Teri visited them on vacation, she loved the town and the way the name sounded when you said it. We are not sure why she named her cat after a beach, but it started a theme cuz her first Cornish Rex was named after a beach in Cornwall, England.

Her name was Rusey Beach (pronounced Roo-Zee).

And now...there's Brighton, who is named after a beach in Cornwall, too!

So after this little travelogue. . .Don't forget to Hop!


  1. Cascais was a pretty girl and that is a lovely photo of her sniffing the tulip.

  2. MOL! Ut-oh, mommy's looking like she might steal that catnip leaf idea... We STILL say beaches are better than physics particles (lepton, tachyon) for names.

  3. Loved the photo of the kitty sniffing the flower. That is beautiful. Its very interesting to hear how the love of the beach has helped name many kitties. Hope you had a wagtastic Wed.

  4. What a clever way to get that first photo. It is so loving and peaceful. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  5. That was a neat trick to get her to take a whiff


Thanks everso for stopping by. We love visitors!
