I want to change my username.

Last edited Tue Feb 23, 2021, 01:06 PM - Edit history (1)

It's outdated. My daughter (one of the Airmen) has retired after 20 years. She divorced her husband (the other of the Airmen) several years ago. And they've both gone to the dark side. Besides that, most people assume from my username that I have a son, which I do not.

I thought it would be fun to have a name that will never wear out. For me, that's something to do with kittehs.

Here are some of my ideas:

1) piddyprints: Cartoon Tweety used to say, "this little piddy went to market ..." as he peeled Sylvester's paws off his cage. So we have always referred to paw prints as piddyprints. It's what they leave on the coffee table and our hearts.

2) Grizabella: From the Cats musical, the old washed up kitty who is shunned from leaving the fold. She gets chosen to go to the Heaviside Layer. This one seems sort of sad, but not altogether inaccurate ... at least the first part.

3) Syllabub: Double meaning here. She's a kitten from Cats, who is alternately called Jemima. It's also a sort of dessert drink that I've never had before.


4) Jellylorum: Named after T.S. Elliot's cat. She's older and more maternal than most of the others.


OK, that's a bit Cat-heavy. That's the point. My cats have helped me through the hell that Republicans keep foisting on our country, time after time. So why not make my username cat-themed?

Suggestions? Opinions? Are they all too stupid?

Take your time. I have to go scoop litter boxes.



Update: I posted a new thread saying that I decided on piddyprints, but I will name my next kitteh Syllabub. Thank you all!

3. No suggestions, but your feline overlords approve of this tribute.

Their psychic waves have purrsuasive powers.

I don't have any suggestions for usernames, but you might want to use LOLCatese to make the name a bit more fun. FWIW, it's taken me awhile to come up with names for my cats too.

4. Of course you should have a cat name! We must acknowledge our feline superiors, the ones who

own our hearts.

I think you will enjoy the dessert, too.of course it is a purr felt cat name, since it is basically whipped cream (and a little sugar, maybe wine or brandy, a bit of citrus, but mainly cream).

5. I really like piddyprints!

It is a cute name, it is endearing because....well....piddyprints (a really cute name for what I wipe off my tables and counters daily) and yes, my melty heart. PLUS you made it up and that is the best.

Anything you like but you asked and I think that is an adorable name.

6. Jellylorum is my favorite. I like piddyprints also.

I would have used CatsRule if I had done a cat related username. Simply because they do rule.
