As you might know, gentle reader, my beautiful wife and I are pretentious enough that our cats have literary or mythological names.
Retired names include Galt, Ajax, and Dominique. Our current group of prowlers include Tristan, Aurora, Roark, Athena, and Isis.
But I hereby announce my intent that we name our next cats in the following literary fashion: H.P. Lovecraft stories.
Come on, there’s scarcely a title here that’s not suitable for naming a cat. The best:
- The Thing on the Doorstep
- The Haunter of the Dark
- The Lurking Fear
- What the Moon Brings
- The Doom that Came to Sarnath
I’ll have to stop there, or I’ll republish the whole bibliography in a different order.
I’m so inspired that I want to go to the feline recycling center right now.
