operation veterinarian complete and the making of w the cat @ 11:33 am

Current Mood: amused amused

We took the puppy to the vet today, even after still hearing that we're not ready to have another animal. She did really well in the car, slept on my lap the whole way. She was even well-behaved in the vet and tollerated all of the crazy-acting animals. Which, before I give the vet's diagnosis which I'm sure you're all dying to hear, I should ask the "question of the day". A person came in to the vets office with a really yowly cat; I don't know what the cat was in there for but that doesn't concern us. The cat's name though, concerns and perplexes me, and I'd like your comments on it. The cat's nme was George W Bush, for real. Not George, not BUsh, but George W Gush. Would a person who likes W name a cat after him, or would it be a W hater? What would possess someone to do that to the poor kitty? Creativity and interesting ideas are welcome but my idea is that I bet the poor southern family wnated to elevate w to kittydom. If I were a cat, I don't know if I'd want the title but I'm not a cat so I don't have to worry about it I suppose.

Anyway, according to the vetm the puppy is about nine months old which means that if we keep her, still an unknown and undecided fact, she'll need to be spaid in short order. She got her shots (something a new owner won't have to do) and got treated for hook worms. The vet didn't have any idea what kind of dog she is, but that doesn't matter.

That's about all from here. I get to do a final revision on a statics chapter later this afternoon and I just an't wait, so I better go. Ideas on the name origin of W the Cat would be greatly appreciated. Congrats on a new "free" Iraq. 21.8 million dollars for Fahrenheit 9/11, wow. That is all.

When I looked at the picture of the puppy, my first guess was a pit mix. But not knowning her size. If she's small enough to fit on your lap, I'd say she's a terrier mix of some sort.

She looked like a sweetie!

She is a nice dog, weighs 25 pounds apparently. She has a curly tail, and they say she may have a dash of chow in her. All I know is her tongue loves to lick and wash faces.

George The Metaphysical Cat

(Link)
Perhaps the cat was yowling because he was about to be, uh, fixed? Perhaps his namesake should ... nevermind.
Did you know T.S. Eliot said that a cat not only has the name he is given, but, "above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought ... of his name:
His ineffable effable, Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name."
That's probably more than you wanted to know and I'm sure didn't answer your question!

Very interesting quote and idea. You know that comment reminds me of those existential writers. Waiting for Gdot when I read it in high school, was hall. Doing a show this wednesday at 15 gmt, Celtic, be there.

15 GMT, that's three p.m. in the UK, right? So it would be four p.m. here in Paris. I'll be listening, then - I wouldn't miss it for the world!

Maybe the cat is a real pain in the ass and thus the name. Or perhaps back in the early 90s, the owner had a cat and named him George Bush. THen low and behold George the First had kittens with some lady kitty and what do you name a cat from George the First but George W?

Very interesting, and thought provoking. The cat sure sounded announg, and its yowl is very much drawn out kind of like w's accent, so maybe w has a dad named George hw. I sure wouldn't name a cat Bill Clinton, and I like the guy.
