A friend emailed me at work today and simply said…
“I bet this cat’s name is Maggie.”
I’d like to comment on this situation… First off, stop naming your animals Maggie. It’s a human name that’s often short for Margaret. I’m so damn tired of hearing about folk’s new pets and when you ask, “Aww… what’s her name?” the say Maggie like they’re so f’**king proud of themselves. You don’t see me naming my cat Josh or Mandy or Andy. That’d be hella stupid.
Secondly, since this is one of my many pet peeves my co-workers like to taunt me. The love it when I get whipped up about something stupid and this is right up their alley. Don’t name your animals human names. My cats are appropriately named Fuzz, Sissy and Koli. See. Nice, normal names.
What the hell ever happened to Spot?
Finally… why the hell would you BET it’d be named Maggie? Because it’s funny looking? Fat? Or fluffy and lovable. I’m voting LOVABLE!
