shouting nonsense into the void

lucifurfluffypants:

I often get questions about my name, so that is the theme of today’s Fluffy Facts Friday! 
1. “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of…” No, wait. Sorry. Let me start again. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a cat in possession of Persian genes must have an absurd name. Sir Lucifur Fluffypants was about as ridiculous as Mom could come up with. It started as a joke, but then it kind of stuck. Mom doesn’t even really remember why she decided on Lucifur, but the juxtaposition of the malevolent Lucifer and the froofy Fluffypants was just too good to pass up. Add to that the amusement of referring to Lucifer, the devil, as Lucy. The spelling of LuciFUR came later because why pass up a good pun? Throw in the Sir because I’m FANCY, ok? 
2. Mom named me before she even knew I existed, and she talked about me like I was a real person before I was even born. Lucifur is going to do this, and Lucifur blah blah blah… Needless to say, she was looking for a little devil! (On a side note, we are collecting donations to fund her extensive psychotherapy.) 
3. Even though Mom already had my name picked out, she did not tell the breeder my name until AFTER she had already paid the deposit. No take backs! You know, just in case the breeder found the name offensive. She didn’t, by the way. 
4. I live up to my name as often as I can. Mom named me; she should have known what she was getting in to. 
5. Aside from its association with the devil, Lucifer refers to the Morning Star, or Venus. It also means “light bringer.” It’s fitting since I’m the light of Mom’s life. Awwwww. *vomit* Sorry, hairball. I guess I live up to this definition, too. 
6. I know my name is Lucy, and I respond to it. Sometimes I remember Lucy is short for Lucifur. 
(The quote in #1 is from Pride and Prejudice. I always have that association when explaining the facts of Persian cat naming. That’s just how it is. Obviously.)



It is indeed law that Persians must have dumb names. I am the proud owner of Peppurrz Bowie in Space, whose name is hella awesome. View Larger

  • Little boy:I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.
  • Lady:And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?
  • Boy:It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.
  • Lady:Do you want to be a Sith?
  • Boy:No! I am Obi-Wan!
