I thought Louie was a female, so named “her” Lucy, after Lucille Ball. “She” arrived at the apartment in a carrier, and immediately walked around the apartment, opening all the cabinets and making the place “hers”.
When I took “Lucy” to the veterinarian’s to be spayed, the veterinarian technician picked “her” up and noted “she” was a neutered male! LOL! At that same time, the receptionist asked me for “her” name for their file. Quickly, I came up with “Louie”, after Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, another Kool Kat! His new name fit, despite the haste with which I renamed him.
