Others have expressed that they would love to know how you came up with your nickname so am starting this thread.
Mine is pretty obvious. Im tiny. 4'9" and around 100 pounds.
My name Susie Q is from my sweet Kitty Susie. When she was a kitten she ran and chased paper balls and it reminded us of Q ball, ergo Susie Q. She left us on Dec 26th 2018 16 years and 2 days after we brought her home. We miss her terribly .
Your Susie looks so much like out Petta, long gone from our lives but missed. My mum rescued her from a dog and she repaid us with 4 kittens. Some low life had abandoned her when they found she was expecting. A Christmas present for some child probably.
My game name is from my first ever kitten, Trixie. She disappeared the night after we got her and we had the whole neighbourhood searching for her. We found her hidden in the lining of the lounge. We had her for many years and she would always wait for me to get home from school.
My forum name, very much a play on words from my grandson.
How wonderful that the abandoned kitty got rescued by your mom. Some how I think that there must be angels guiding them to people that will take care of them and to fill our lives with all the love that they give us. The way we feel for them seems to be reflected in our forum names always close to our hearts. We had many abandoned and lost or wounded animals find the way to us or we stumbled on to them and took them in .
Derek Tangye wrote in one of his books after his beloved Monty died, that he would not have another cat unless it was jet black, and turned up late at night in the middle of a storm. That is how he got his cat Lama. Great series of books, A Cat in the Window, A Gull on the Roof, A Donkey in the Meadow etc. He was in top secret work in WWW2 and his wife Jeannie was liason for the Savoy hotel.
My nickname and IOS game name- I like werecats, I like queens....so I combined them
My Andriod game name- Meliora is one of my OCs and she's actually the dragon queen
Back in the days of AOL chat rooms (remember them?!), my daughter was a chat leader and went by Labma. Well, as her mother, I went by labgramma. Then, on one of the Subaru forums I frequent, I added "turbo" because I had a Legacy Turbo Touring Wagon (rare car!) at the time. Ergo, Turbogramma. It suits me. And that's how my name came about!
I've worked with kids for decades and even when I am not working with them they walk right up and start conversations with me lol
So - kidmagnet!
Back in the days of AOL chat rooms (remember them?!),
mine is a pun of sorts. I started using it back in the 90's just before dh retired from the army. I was working in the px when the toy store opened for Christmas. the store manager asked us to dress us as story book characters. I chose little red riding hood and borrowed my daughters stuffed wolf who guarded my bowl o goodies.. when I got my gmail email I used lilredhood as my email and use it as a name for lots of forums and other places. when people ask me why. also refer to my last name and tell them how else could I get the wolf to stop chasing me around the woods? I said yes and the rest is history.
