Pay Up, Casey

Normally, such a prolific NOSE shot as this would go into the Nosevember File (and there is such a thing..we’ll tag it as such anyway.) But- there are extenuating circumstances. A bet rides on this.

Let’s let Casey S. explain:

“I took a glamour shot of my cat Panza Kitty Baby Fur Fur Baby Kitten Kitten (that’s his full name.) I bet him a bag of catnip that this picture would make it onto Cute Overload. Don’t let me down!”

-Fork over the catnip, Panza Kitty Baby Fur Fur Baby Kitten Kitten wins. And just HOW do you get that entire name onto a little ID tag??

(PS- Panza told us “KONG Naturals Premium Catnip” works for him. Apparently, he’ll love you for it. Or something.)



  1. I’m new to this cat thing but I thought cats were legally required to have monikers of a worthy length. At least, that’s what Nosey Parker Zoot [sic] Alors Esmeralda Thunderpants assured me soon after she was adopted.

  2. Konaluna says:

    Yay, my photo made it on here! I told him it would. I just ordered him the catnip he so helpfully suggested.

  3. Athos' slave says:

    According to T. S. Eliot, they are to have three names. Google The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot. Our is Athos “Starvin Marvin” Boogerbutt.

  4. All my kitties have official names (including middle names) and then there are the gazillions of nicknamey variations. PKBFFBK is quite gorgeous.


  6. I’m familiar with the poem, Athos’ slave, but, if one was to believe it, your cat would only have TWO names known to you, the third remaining forever a secret.
    Also, Parker was most insistent: lengthy name to match her lengthy tail and her people’s long and noble history.

  7. Athos' slave says:

    Alia, he actually let us know his secret name, Boogerbutt, by not properly using the litterbox when we first adopted him. He always left a litte for us to clean off, therefore, revealing his “secret” name to us. He has gotten much better as he has matured 🙂

  8. Ah ha. I stand corrected, Athos’ slave.

  9. Emmberrann says:

    My late-and-much-beloved kitteh was named “Mr. Samuel Picky”. He had no middle name. If he had a secret name, he never confided it to me during our 18-year long partnership. He was more than 20 years old when he died, and I miss him still.

  10. Love the picture and his name which I cannot remember, but you made my day.

  11. I do not think that word (prolific) means what you think it means. Bonus Princess Bride reference!

  12. AWW 😦 I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear sweet kitty, “Mr. Samuel Picky”, Emmberrann 😦 I hope that another dear sweet kitty comes into your life soon 🙂

    To be prolific, there would have to be many noses! Perhaps you meant prodigious, “remarkably or impressively great in extent, size, or degree”? Boop on da nose!😃

  14. You beat me to it, avecmoipets! I was thinking the same thing!
