From one cat lover to another, I thoroughly enjoyed this piece. I, too, have a penchant for unique names:

Candy (Not so unique — I was four), Sylvia, Tuff, One, Ping Li Po, Matisse, Lui Chi, Miss Willy, Maybe, Nathaniel, Yoda, Chewey, Jessie, Jollymon, Jackson, Jazz — my J phase — Tango, and Sébastien. A few others that shared my life were named by other family members, resulting in less creative names that thankfully did not lessen the uniqueness of those felines.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
