i was thinking of a queen to go with rex which, of course, means king in latin, but im not a big fan of regina although reggie isnt bad. sophie has a nice backstory. and for all you kate jackson fans theres always mrs. king. also one of my favorites, persephone, queen of the underworld and demeters daughter.

She is so cute (but aren't they all, at that age.) Please make sure she has her shots. My cat was named Kitty, but that was back in the generic era. Still, it always works. Taking off from the classical suggestions, I like Kore, which is another name for Persephone. Pronounced with a long e, it fits anywhere Kitty would, and doesn't have to be shortened when you call her.

    • Riley is a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake that I found on Halloween of 97 when Kris was pregnant with Ren. He was a baby & I caught him with my gray Fedora & coaxed him into a Mickey's widemouth beerbottle. He's been growing ever since & yesterday I selected the most Chihuahuan location around to release him. He's about the same length as Ren. Why did I keep North America's deadliest serpent in an aquarium on my desk for five years?... Well, we've all been growing up around here & all I can say in defense of myself is at least I don't have a pet rattlesnake anymore. I never got around to smoking much of his venom but I did make a few recordings of the amazing & magical buzzing rattle. Isn't everyone proud of me for letting go of such a dangerous & foolish part of myself. But I miss it already. As I was leaving him yesterday I had a surge of sympathy for the whole kingdom of cold blooded creatures. It must not be easy being cold all the time & being chased around by furry hot-blooded killers. Perhaps it's time to meditate on our inner reptile.

      • On Animal Planet on cable I learned that king snakes regularly kick diamondback ass in the wild. No poison, just squeezing, and they're getting more and more resistant to rattler venom. Hope your ex-pet doesn't meet one.

      • The Eastern King Snake is notorious for eating east coast rattlers but the only relative of the king snake we have is the mostly helpless Milk Snake. As far as building resistance to venom it may happen within one King Snake's lifetime but it is not a species- wide trend. A big Diamonback's greatest threat comes from cats, foxes, coyotes, skunks & badgers not to mention the everpresent death from above scenario. Snakes are basically helpless making the rattlesnake's rattle all the more mysterious. Riley actually came just a few miles from your beloved Texas. I found him in a volcanic crater called Killbourne hole, 20 miles from El Paso, in the shadow of Mt. Riley.

      • I finally got around to putting up pics of Riley's liberation trip here. They're also accesible via the Images page.

That was a handsome snake. I used to love those Mickey's Big Mouths, with the suicide pull top.

rex is now playing a little with "no name", rex is also getting hugh as we assume he gets feed at a few places in the backyard world......

Glad to hear she's gaining acceptance, but give that kitty a name!

  • how about Squishy?
    - dave 9-16-2002 9:00 am [add a comment]

  • maybe you all will have to come over for a kitty naming event. nothing seems to be sticking -- i've been calling her weezie, little miss muffet, and marguerite. rex has a new nickname - big fatty chopper - since he's put on a few pounds. i'm going to have to air drop fliers into all the neighboring yards with his photo and "please don't feed this cat!"

  • Priscilla!
    it's hard to get a focused shot of the kitties with this webcam.
    she had an emergency trip to the vet last night. her ear mite medication is throwing off her equilibrium and she keeps falling over. it's pretty funny now that we know it's not serious. this makes her second visit to the vet since we got her, she is beginning to be a high maintenance little kitty.

  • rex is currently stoned on fresh catnip from the market
