I‘m a day late for #internationalcatday - but just in time for #namesakes for #austeninaugust2019 😸
Most of my companion animals over the years have been named after Jane Austen characters, and these two dorks are no exception. Elliot and Tilney have to be so cute, to make up for their general bratty behavior (she says after being woken up at 5:45 this morning by a extremely vocally hungry Tilney). Love them anyway. 😹😸😻 #catsoflitsy

MelissaSue81 They are ADORABLE!! Love the one of their little faces peeking off the shelf!

I love cats. But alas my Mr. Darcy does not. From time to time I look at Rescue sites and dream of kitten like this one. I would name it Jane Pawsten. Until then I love Book Cats like Footnote: "Normally the chair was Footnote‘s but the cat ceded it to her on the understanding that she would compensate by providing her lap. Arsenic dutifully compensated." ?

JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘d be surprised how someone can change. I had an ex fiancé who was dead set against cats, but I lived alone and I got one and then he was the biggest mush with the cat ever. He evolved into a cat lover. Cats are underrated in the States. 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @JanuarieTimewalker13 I keep showing him pictures of my friends cat Chester Copperpot in attempt to where him down 3mo
Melwilk My husband who “hated” cats secretly became best buds with the cat he reluctantly got me for Christmas one year. They became inseparable. 3mo

Crinoline_Laphroaig @Melwilk There is hope! 😺 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Haha...Chester Copperpot is an adorable name!! Believe me, you can convert him-my ex fiancé was “allergic”. Yeah, right. All of a sudden, he wasn‘t and that cat was all over him. Lol I would come home with a cat that fetches (pretty common now) and just say “this is a dog disguised as a cat, and he/she needed a home”. Lol 3mo
ladym30 What an adorable face!❤️ 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @ladym30 Sweet with a bit of mischief in it's eyes. 😸 3mo

I wanted to name these two Mister Darcy and Miss Bennett, but the hubs wanted to keep the names the Humane Society gave them, Oscar and Darla. Yuck right?! 😂 Since they are his cats, I acquiesced. #namesakes #austeninaugust @Crinoline_Laphroaig

This one seems entirely appropriate, no? #AtHomewithJane

As for #namesakes my 12YO daughter‘s middle name is Elizabeth, in honour of one of my grandmothers and one of my all time favourite characters in literature, Elizabeth Bennet 😊

Oh, and since I‘m now home from the cottage and have been reunited with my books it will be much easier for me to do this photo challenge.


ReadingMeagan What a pretty cover! And it sounds really interesting as well 😊 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig I'm absolutely loving the audio book! 1y

I have a cat named Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. Some things to know:

1. My daughter thinks my cat is a jerk, but I tell her he‘s just misunderstood.

2. The other people that live with us call him ‘Fitz‘ because apparently I am ‘a nerd.‘

3. While they are both exhibiting lovely bedroom eyes above, the Mr. Darcy on the right does not come with 10k a year.

Snapped this picture of a sign at Jane Austen House Museum. I would totally have a cat named Jane Pawsten. She would be deceptively sweet looking with a mischievous side. Alas my Mr. Darcy is not a fan of cats. 😼 #namesakes #janepawsten #austeninaugust

julesG That name! 1y
HOTPock3tt Lol! ❤️Where was the museum? 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @HOTPock3tt Chawton Cottage in England. It's where Jane lived, wrote and sent her novels out into the world to be published. Beautiful village. Just down the lane is where her wealthy brother lived at what is now called Chawton House Library. It's dedicated to research and preserving women writers. 1y
