How I Got My Name Meme

You all know how I got my name, Millie. Malcolm found me and had a poll. Millie is from the Spanish "mil" meaning thousand, for how many green papers it needed to fix my leg (Actually fixing me up cost over 1,300 green papers!)

You can read about it here, and then follow a link to get the actual poll results. For a while, my name was No Name Yet, or NNY. I like Millie a lot better. Mom voted for "Millie" in the poll.

How did you get your name? I want to hear stories about how cats got their names. So I am starting this meme. I am going to tag three cats. They will have to tell the story of how they got their names, and then tag three other cats. You should announce which cats you are tagging in your blog, and then let them know by commenting in their blogs.

I am tagging:

Daisy Mae Maus
(why name a cat after a mouse?)

Monty Q
(my sweetheart)

By the way, I am named Puff after the kitten in the books my mom had in school, you know Dick and Jane and Spot and Puff.
