She has a name!



Finally, our new little gal has her name. I have appreciated reading the suggestions since that helped us land on agreement on an S name…then we had to come to a consensus on the name itself. I used my veto on hubby’s “Snooky” and he used his veto on “Sera”…so that left us still searching for a name. I happened to mention that I remembered the Shmoo character in the Li’l Abner cartoons (yes, I know…many years ago!) and in discussion about the Sadie Hawkins Day that originated in the cartoon, we both looked at each other and said “that’s it!” I like the fact that there is a link to her original Shmoo name and even better – the connection with the history behind the real life Sadie Hawkins Day. An excerpt from the Li’L Abner .com site says that the Sadie Hawkins Day became a “woman empowering rite" at high schools and college campuses. Since Molly, Virginia, Domino and the lady cats at the Katnip Lounge are definitely the queens of their homes and keep their boys in line, I thought that “Sadie” was really appropriate!

Halleluyah! I love it! Sadie is a very feminine name and I think it suits her.

I don't think we have another Sadie in the Cat Blogosphere either. I haven't heard of one anyway.

Very nice! Sweet Sadie!
