Whats in a Name ??

WaterMelon
Several asked yesterday about my name

My name is WaterMelon
I do not eat watermelons and Im not pink
I am a great big man cat!


During the day I go outside
At night I sleep in the bed with my people

So ... How did I get my name ... welll

The story goes that my Dady played lots of computer games and in one of the games there was a character called WaterMelon - his special trick in the game was that he could make mushrooms and when other player ran through the mushrooms it would slow them down.

When I showed up at my now home lots of mushrooms showed up as well. I dont think I did anything to make the mushrooms but Momy and Dady made the connection and laughed about the mushrooms and me the fluffy grey kitty and so they started calling me WaterMelon.



I go by and will come to:
WaterMelon
Melon
Melon Ball Fluffy Pants
Mel-Mel

I like to roll on the gravels outside and I like to sleep in my chair or on the bed in the house.
As a general rule only my Momy and sometimes my Dady can pet me when I am outside. If its not one of them I will run. When I am in the house I am a love to anyone.


This is me on my favorite blankie on my favorite chair

So there you have it - Probably not the strangest kitty name ever but definately different.
