How did I get my “Tigerhomes Nickname”?

First, let me start by saying my real name is Donna (aka keykey).

Keykey was our family cat. My husband brought her home as a kitten in his coat on the city bus. The only animals allowed on the city buses are working animals such as Seeing Eye Dogs, etc… So you see why, I said he had to hide her in his coat! Keykey was with us for 7 years before she passed on. ~ “God Rest Her Soul” Keykey followed me all over the place. To the school, she would be far enough away from the reach of children. Mind you, she loved children. To the store, she would wait outside looking through the glass door, so she was able to see me. To the mall, I would have to pick her up to bring her all the way back home. As, I would not realize she was behind me, until I was almost to the mall door. This is just a few things, our keykey used to do. I as a person who loves cats, this is why keykey is my Tigerhomes nickname. Her name and the memories will be with us forever. I do believe I have put a few pictures her in the Rant and Rave about your Pets thread, as well as a few pictures of our cat now named Angel. Oh, my god, Angel well lets just say he is another story! LOL

So That’s My Story. ~
What Is Yours?

Well my story is almost identical to yours I got my tigerhomes name from our first kitty we brought in my husband was more of a dog person, but now he loves all animals. My nikki was a joy she was with us for 14 years and now rest in my front yard along with boo boo and mr moose we have brought in 5 more since we lost these 3 and also a dog named shylo they are all a blessing and by the way my first kitty ever when I was young was named keykey my parents say I could not say kitty but instead said keykey so that's my story

I go by the name "Smilodon" or "Smilodon fatalis" at several different places since it's my favorite animal species. Cool

The famous Vlad was a historial figure who was a bloodthirsty tyrant, cruel and ruthless -- mindlessly slaughtering the posts of spammers and trolls...? Oh yeah! AND Vlad was a guy with facial hair! (No jokes Kitty about me needing a shave! Confused ) There's also Vlad the vampire who sucked the blood of his victims!

Well I'm not THEM! Although I AM feeling a little 5 o-clock shadow! Hmmm.

My screen name has nothing whatsoever to do with killing & drinking blood (unless you're a SPAMMER Evil or Very Mad or a TROLL Mad ):


~~
One day at work, I was really exausted and misspelled my nickname & last initial in an e-mail to a co-worker. The smart-alec (one of my all-time favorite co-workers!) immediately saw it and shot back an e-mail with "Thanks vlad!."

Ah! Very cool - I've been wondering how some people got their nicknames!

My name is Zach Glenwright. taburineagle comes from a drawing that I did a few years ago (1998) of an eagle, that I named Taburin - not the best picture ever, in fact, it was kind of lame... but it was one of my better ones! I eventually opened a site with that name, but that kind of died after awhile...

t~e can either be the
• First letter of Taburin and the First letter of Eagle
-or-
• First letter of Taburin and the Last letter of Eagle

I'll put a picture on here later of Taburin when I have a chance to snap the pic... it's really nothing to look at, especially with all of the amazing illustrators on this site, but it stuck with me... Smile

t~e

Back when I first got an internet connection I went with AOL ( we only had a choice of about 2 or 3 isp's back then if memory serves me ) and of course you need a screen name to use your aol account.
I was reading a book called Burning Chrome and have always been a fan of felines so I just combined the two and came up with ChromeKitty. The name was already taken so I had to come up with something else and just added the first word that came into my head onto the name which was Cult and so I became ChromeKittyCult. Eventually it got shortened to cKc as it's a bit of a pain to type when signing up at websites. So yeah thats how I got my nickname.
