Hey!

Hey, you there! Have I got your attention? It's Harry here. I have to raise an important issue. That issue is silly nicknames. Do you know what my foster mum calls me? Harry Pants! That doesn't even make sense! And it is longer than Harry. So it's not even really a nickname.
It's a silly nickname. And my little brother Ron, do you know what he has been getting called? Ronnylicious. That's even worse. He just buries his head and pretends he can't hear it.
Fui sits on a cat tree behind the couch, and we are sure that he looks down and snickers at us and our nicknames. A lot.
I also have to tell you, my vet check went well. Ron is still seperated from us though.
Have a fun weekend:)
From Harry.

Hi Harry, you and your brother are awfully young to have to face one of the harsh truths about humans, but I suppose it's better now than later: you can't escape that dumb nickname thing. No matter what your real name is, humans will turn themselves inside out mangling it into the most annoying nicknames you can possibly imagine. I won't even tell you the things my human calls me. It's too embarrassing. But this is something you and Ron will have to deal with for your whole lives, which I hope will be very, very long.

P.S. Honestly, your nickname sort of makes sense because after all, you do have hairy pants.

Tee Hee Hee. That is NOT a snicker! It is a giggle! It is a giggle of pure joy! WE think you are just too wonderful for words and we have a feeling we would be coming up with silly nicknames too. Does Hermione have one?

Hi Mr.Harry Pants - we're glad to heaer your check-up went well. We understand that the nick-names make you a bit embarrassed, but remember - the more names, the more they love you! Just accept them (and make up some for the hoomans ;))

Big kisses,

Great pictures, you little ones look really good! We love Harry Pants as a nickname. Mom has been calling Chilli "Chillimus Prettypuss" recently, so we know what you mean. Humans!

I feel your pain little Harry.

Aunty Lissa is the Queen of Stupid Nicknames.

I do believe she probably only does that crazy name business with the ones she truly loves so I would just grin and bear it.

It is humorous though. The PM has been calling Banshee ~ "Bansh bo Bansh" and I have to leave the room before I laugh right in her whiskers!!

It's really very cute, just like you!

Nothing wrong with being called Harry Pants. You could get called much, much worse.

Well, Mr. Harry Pants, we think it suits you just fine. We had to back up a few posts to see what you've all been up to since Mom is so busy. Gandalf's little mate Sarah use to try to suckle on poor little BooBoo's boy bits when they were about your age. Sarah never did forget about the behavior until they were much larger kittens.

Keep thriving, Hogwarts Kittens!

You're never too young to get a start on the harsh realities of kitten life. Just be happy that you don't have so many nicknames you actually forget your real names. I don't really even know mine any more...

Nicknames is part of the game ...

It starts young.

Hope Ron can join you soon.

Don't think of it as a nickname. Think of it as your lovename.

Angel and Kirby said...

Silly Humans like to give us nicknames, like the Kirbster! We just get use to it cause that means they love us!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh Harry it is just a fact of life - we humans love to give nicknames, even if they are longer than the original. It is a sign of love - at least with kitties -so take it as a good thing!

We are glad that you had a good checkup at the vet but we are sad that you still have to be separate from your brother! We are keeping our fingers and paws crossed that he will learn not to use you as a mom substitute soon so you can hang out together again.

You are all such little cuties!!

The Island Cats said...

Oh Harry! The humans give all of us nicknames...we think it means they love us lots...

(Mom sez she can't take your cuteness anymore!!! She wants to reach into the computer screen and just kiss your little face, Harry Pants!!)

Don't worry Harry!! You are not alone. Our Moms love to give us nicknames :) It's just what Moms do,heehee
It just means that we are SO cute. Use it to your advantage and demand treats & attention. She won't be able to resist!!!!!!! Glad that your Vet visit went well :)
Why don't you make up a nickname for Fui? heehee

We thinks that Harry Pants is a cute nickname!

Better than mine! My mom has given me some funny nicknames which I don't think is funny!
