Am I a crazy cat lady yet?

In addition to my stuffed kitteh at home, I had gotten a feline for my home in Second Life (mine is black, but I can’t find it on the marketplace now), but I was recently told about the kittens over at Jian and I love the little darlings! Not only can I rez more than one, but I have one that will follow me wherever I go. The one thing I don’t have just yet is a shoulder kitteh, but I’m looking for one.

At the suggestion of a friend in SL, I took a picture of me and my babies to hang in my SL home. Of course, I had to post it online so I can share it with folks not on SL.

Am I a crazy cat lady yet?

In the front are Coco, Clara, and a shark cat bed with two kittehs who aren’t named (they are part of the bed, alas). In the back are Eliza (who looks like a bear in this picture), my SL avatar Nanci, and my companion kitteh. Clara is usually upstairs on my second floor but I brought her downstairs for the picture. The companion kitteh doesn’t have a name yet, but I’ll have to name her soon so I can introduce her as she explores Second Life with me. The companion kitteh has a name! She is now Sarah Jane, as in Sarah Jane Smith, the journalist who traveled with our favorite Gallifreyan. She makes the second kitteh named after one of the Doctor’s companion because Clara is named for Clara Oswin Oswald.

For the record, and for those who don’t remember, Eliza is named for Eliza Schuyler Hamilton as played in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton by Phillipa Soo (and several others). Coco isn’t so much named for anyone, but one of my friends on Dodgers Twitter is Coco, and she recently lost her longtime canine companion so her name was available in my mind, as was the name of the Oscar-winning Disney/Pixar movie.

Updated 10:25 pm: I’ve changed my companion kitteh. I like the kitteh following me around, but I want a cat I can carry in my arms, or better yet wear as a shoulder cat. I found the Kitty AIO UnLeashed cat on the Second Life Marketplace. I now present the new Sarah Jane.

She has several poses she uses, including one upside down (silly cat), and she can also dance and do flips! If she’s on my arm I can pet her, but she purrs quite a bit on my shoulder, in fact, I’ve had to turn down her volume because she’s been so loud in my ear.

I may have to replace my Jian cats with other cats like Sarah Jane, but I need to think about that. One annoying thing about the Jian cats is that they walk through the walls of my house and I keep getting errors that I can’t rez objects there.

Updated 13 July: Silly me realized the Eliza in my RL flat is a tuxedo cat, not a solid black cat, so I’ve swapped the names for Eliza and Sarah Jane. In the picture of my kitties above, the cat at my knees is now Sarah Jane and the companion cat to the right of me is now Eliza. Sorry, girls!

  1. […] just like the Eliza stuffed animal I have in my RL home. I’d originally named this kitteh Sara...
