On a lighter topic...

Post by WestwayKid » 16 Oct 2017, 2:21pm

...my kids and I adopted a stray cat this weekend and named him Joe Strummer! :)

Had not planned on it (we already have a couple of rescues)...but he happened our way and I decided to take a chance and the moment my sister sent me the text about him (she actually found him) I was listening to one of Marky's remasters...so I decided on the spot he would be dubbed Joe!

My 5-year-old daughter calls him Joe Drummer, however!

No one ever names them Terry Chimes. :ohboy:

Seriously, tho, that's a cool and noble deed.

My daughter used to call him George Drummer!
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I through briefly about naming him Vince White, but I didn't want a cat named Greg in the house! :mrgreen:

Congrats on both adopting a stray and giving him such a cool name! Also, post pics!

You’ve got this all wrong mate. You haven’t adopted the cat, the cat has decided to board at your place as long as it is warm and you feed it or else it is moving on to something better 😀

Oh, most definitely! I've lived with cats my whole life. They decide to live with you as long as it suits them! ;)

We've got two Springers, the older one is Woody and the younger one is Bruce.

When we got the younger one, I got sick of folk asking if we were going to call him Buzz. Got a few strange looks when I explained Woody was named after Joe Strummer.

Years ago me and some flatmates christened a cat that 'moved in' one day with this very name.
And as 101w warns above, Brian stuck around for a few weeks, eating all the luxury cat food we started buying for him, then buggered off, came back a few weeks later, and kept repeating the cycle.
We all moved on eventually.
Lord knows who Brian is sponging off now
