meet ryan kitty!


ryan kitty.

If you’re friends with me on facebook or follow me on twitter, you have most certainly already ‘met’ ryan kitty. I adopted him in June from a friend I worked with at the restaurant in Denver and rooming with an 8 week old kitten was difficult. We bonded immediately but man, he drove me nuts! Let’s just say we didn’t choose to sleep at the same times…and I only technically had one room so it was me and him 24/7, literally. So where does “ryan kitty” come from? I like human names for animals because they seem more unexpected – such as Jennifer for a dog – and when I thought of male names, I immediately thought of my favorite DJ that I mentioned in my last post, Kaskade. His real name is Ryan and being the creepy superfan that I am, it was an obvious choice to name this adorable kitten ryan! the “kitty” part I often add to the end is really just as simple as it sounds – to ensure that people know I am referring to my kitten and not some boyfriend that does odd things – such as bite my face to wake me up.


chomping on one of my fingers.

ryan kitty accompanied the roommate and myself during the long drive to the northwest (and was perfectly behaved during the drive & hotel nights, believe it or not!) and now lives with another boy kitty his age and a female about six months older in our townhouse. The two boys get along well and I have a suspicion that ryan kitty has a crush on the girl cat, but she hisses at him when he gets near her and she runs away – with him chasing behind, of course. Sounds like young love to me! So yes, I freely admit my obsession with my cat, you all have now ‘met’ him yourselves, and I do shamelessly text pictures of him to my friends – the ones that allow me to do so, of course!


he is so silly.
