Sheamus Popoki

Hi All!

Mom is letting me speak today. As you can see, I have a truly hard life here. I eat. I sleep. I play with my brother. Life is good.

Some of you may wonder how I got my name. Mom explained that I am Sheamus Popoki Aloysius Mango or Spam for short. Now, "Sheamus" is not a traditional spelling. So how did Mom come up with it?

Well, Mom is kind of a dork... She watches professional wrestling, or did or on occasion she watches. Aside from having a thing for red heads, she also has a thing for accents. A while ago, she decided that she wanted to have a ginger cat to name after the wrestler you see below.

Yes, this wrestler's stage name is Sheamus and he is Irish. Although he's pretty fierce during matches, he seems like a really nice, funny guy during interviews. And so, when Mom decided to adopt me, she already knew what she would name me. And let me tell you, I've got a few wrestling moves that would put this guy to shame! You should see me wrestle with 9. I tell you, I would be the world champion of cat wrestlers in no time! At least that is what I tell myself when I remember. Tee hee...

Mom keeps saying that I'm kind of dim. I'm not sure what she means by that, but she also says I'm an absolute sweetie peetie and she'll take dim but sweet anytime!

So there you have it. The origin of my name.

Thank you for reading!


  1. I always wonder how other kitties get their names! My human's lousy at it - in fact, Boodie had to name herself! I lucked out 'cause my human knew she was going to put me on the internet and she wanted a name that was nice but not too generic.

  2. Thanks for sharing the story! I always like hearing about how kitties got their names.

  3. Lets hope your brogue kick is a bit less lethal -g-.

  4. Well... it's a little bit weird to be named after a wrestler but who cares, right? The important thing is that you are happy!
