I do remember that Zoey to Joey story! But you are right, I didn't remember it until you told it again.Originally Posted by gabriel;2533450;
Oh no dear lady. Y'all sit back now and I am going to tell you how Joey came into my life and got named. I know I probably told this story before but it's like one of those family things that get repeated every year at the holidays.
First off I had adopted Mona when she was about 3 years old in 1994 or 5, now fast forward to Aug 1996, when my drunky ex roommate said "I want a kitten so I can have my own something to love me" We go to a pet store and look around walk up to this cage where there are a bunch of adorable kittens, and this little one walks up with this BIG voice! OK I'll make it short. My drunky ex doesn't know what to call IT yet so the name BUDDY is applied for about a week. After that the drunky ex decides that he doesn't see SOMETHING DOWN THERE, so it's a GIRL (I didn't see anything ELSE and questioned this and was told to shut up it was his cat. OK)Anyhoo he decides it's a girl - the name gets changed to ZOEY. Well a week or two after that ZOEY needs to go for shots that the store has already paid for with a vet and drunky ex finds out the GIRL is a BOY, who by the way now comes running to the name ZOEY, so the Z gets changed to a J. Then a year later I move and the best decision the fool ever made, was insisting I take Joey because him & Mona were used to each other, and not only that Joey HATED the guy because he was always getting YELLED at for being on the furniture, being on the BED, table etc etc.
