Thread Name: Happy! – Dec 30 (Kipling born 30 Dec 1865)
Subject: RE: Happy! – Dec 30 (Kipling)
Ah wonderfully Happy, yes!

One of our cats is named after Kipling. My daughter called from the vet's where she'd taken him to be neutered. He was a stray yet to be named. I told her he reminded me of the Cat Who Walked by Himself, so Kipling it was!

He loves it when I singsong his name and draw it out to Kip-il-leeng...makes him so happy. My grandson is now learning about Baloo, Mowgli, Bagheera (another borrowed name for a long ago black cat) and others, as well as had Yellow Dog Dingo read to him as my mom did me years ago.

Thanks, Abby,
