Introducing Princess Buttercup

After five days hiding beneath the bathtub, our kitty is finally out and about.  She's still a little shy, as you can see.  

It wasn't long before we noticed she didn't seem to like the name Tinkerbell.  She'd become a little twitchy when we called her by that name.  The three of us were watching The Princess Bride together, when I jokingly cried, "Pawincess Buttahcup!" 

Her ears snapped toward me.  Surprised at her instantaneous reaction, I repeated the name, "Princess Buttercup?!"  She turned her head and looked  into my eyes.  I am sure she was smiling.

Then my husband said, "Buttercup!"  She stood to her paws and walked up his chest to purr her approval.

So here she is, introducing our new furry friend, Princess Buttercup!

Oh that is a great story...and what a gorgeous kitty. She looks much more like a "Buttercup" she is too fluffy to be a little "Tinkerbell" and she definitely is a Princess.
I can't believe it's the middle of May already...time just flies by. I hope you all had a good time on Clytie's Birthday.
Make it a great Monday...Love you.

What a lovely story to show ( again) how intelligent cats are and how much they know who they are.Give beautiful Buttercup a smile from me and a purr from Robby ( who did not want to be anybody else, obviously)
kind regards, Martina

What a beauty she is! (and how brave of you to take on the high maintenance of a long hair) ;)
Perfect name, too.

She's a beauty! I think her name is wonderful. She obviously approves!

Congratulations on your new cat! I love cats but my family is all allergic, so we have a dog instead. But we think he's a great little dog.

Welcome to your new home, Princess Buttercup!

I'm in agreement that Tinkerbell was too angular of a name for such a beautiful fluffball. Buttercup is perfect!
