Our cat Stripe got his name because at first, we didn’t want to name him… so we wouldn’t get attached to him before we gave him away. We called him “The Striped One.” Our friends took his brother Stuart and we had planned on keeping Missy, but he never found another home, thank goodness!! So we shortened his name to Stripe. He also answers to Stripey and Stripey-Yipey-Doo! And he knows how to sit.
