What’s in a (Pet) Name?

1agirlwithdog003Whenever I go pretty much anywhere I have a tendency to spot animals all over the place be it a stray cat, birds, even horses and cows.  I also have a tendency to give names to the animals I see on a regular basis.  Basically the first thing that pops into my head becomes their new name.  This sometimes brings unusual results, there are two cats that I have dubbed “Fluffy Kitty” and “Friday”.  Anyway, to assist me in this naming mission, I have made myself a list of cute names I have discovered.  Many of them came from an excellent pet naming book I found at the library, I just wish I could remember the title.  I thought is would be extremely beneficial to post it here to inspired others in their pet naming endeavors.  So here’s:
