Step One

Step one, dear Thwok, is admitting that you have a problem.

Granted, you are a cat, and I guess it's okay if you want to go around all Kate Moss with junk on your nose and all that.


But still...

Fix your face, woman! That catnip is a crazy bitch!

That Cosmic Catnip is some good stuffs. The kitties all enjoy it. Thwok seems to do so with less concern for her public image. ;)

Hmmm...maybe it's just the angle of the photo, but Thwok seems to be looking a bit portly these days, no?

Nah. She's no longer a kitten (she'll be two in May), but she's still little. Weighs under seven pounds.

In a house where Archie is pushin' 20 pounds, seven makes Thwok a wee lass.

So, tell me, how, exactly, did Thwok get such a unique name?

Posted by: Ed R at March 31, 2006 8:25 AM

Thwok is an onomatopoeia. (It's the sound she makes when she runs into things, which she does all the time. RUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUNRUN... THWOK!!)

And the name came from a "missing cat" poster my then-beau and I saw at the Taco Stand in Athens in 1991 or 1992. The poster described this lovely animal and then ended with,

"We miss him greatly. His name is Thwok."

I decided at that time I would, someday, have a pet named Thwok. And, I also decided the name was androgynous. ;)

So, there ya go. A dozen or so years later and I have me a Thwok! Heeeee!

She's an onomatopoeia? I thought she was a cat?
She LOOKS like a cat. I guess she SOUNDS like a Thwok, though.

Doin' a pretty good Whitney Houston impersonation in those pics, too.
