I’m getting a kitten today courtesy of Sarah Perry, my nearest PCV neighbor! It’s beautiful and white and soft and I’ll talk at it when I’m feeling lonely. In honor of this momentous occasion, I’d like to leave the task of naming it up to you all lovely blog readers. Think of it as Apples to Apples – the prompt is “If Matt had a cat, what would he name it?”
Leave a comment below with your best guess! I’m a fan of quirk, non sequiturs, and cute randomness. I’ll choose my favorite name within a few days and your prize will be knowing that your brainchild will be keeping me company for (hopefully) the next two years.
1. None of this “you need to know the animal before you can name it nonsense.” I’m a believer that the soul becomes the name, not vice versa. My parents named me long before I popped out, and I’m probably the Mattiest Matt you know.
2. You can submit multiple possible names. This is really just a cleverly disguised admission of a lack of imagination on my part.
