Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

I Gave Momma Kat A Name


My guest selfie is someone you already know. Her name was “Momma Kat” but I decided to give her REAL NAME in my post today. And no, sadly, I have not heard this from her permanent caretaker, I simply kept calling her Mandy in my own cat’s mind and I decided it suits her ever so well.

You see the name “Mandy” suits her purrfectly. So from now on, here on my blog, the former “Momma Kat” will be known as “Mandy”.

You ask “why Mandy?” Here is the meaning of this name, and tell me if you think she ought to have some other name. I purrsonally believe “Mandy” is her REAL NAME.

Abbreviation of Amanda, meaning worthy of being loved

I will be sharing the journey she took to end in her permanent home on Monday. That’s why I chose her to be my guest selfie as I join The Cat On My Head for their Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. Paw the badge below to transport faster than a bunny who just ate a mouthful of wasabi to see so many other wonderful selfies.


I have to admit I chose a fave photo of Mandy. I tried real hard to get new photos of her over the last few months, but alas, her permanent home had no time to capture her beauty and share with me. So I hope you enjoy the art known as MANDY!!

Lastly my favorite…

Mandy ready for life as her REAL SELF


PeeEss—Mandy does have a permanent home. Not as I had dreamed of for her, nor her five kittens. But they will all be cared for.

  1. Mandy is a wonderful name for momma cat, Savvy. We had to wipe a tear when we saw the meaning of the name. She deserves that name and home and even if it isn’t a home like we all have, if she and her kitties are safe and happy, we are all happy. The Selfies and artwork are beautiful btw. Good Luck Pawkisses to Mandy and her kitties and one Extra for you 🙂 ❤ ❤

    Sounds a bit like the TV series “Long Lost Family.” You had to send her on for the best of reasons, but you will never stop thinking of her and hoping she and her kittens are having a good life ! And maybe – like on the series – there will be a reunion in the future, or at least news. Purrs.

  9. Beautiful Mandy – we love your choice of name and reason why:)

    We’re glad to hear she found a forever home, even if it’s not the one you had imagined. Mandy sounds like the purrfect name for her, and we’re looking forward to hearing about her new home. Purrs

  11. I’m glad that Mandy has a permanent home – sad that it’s not what you had envisioned for her and I guess her little family didn’t make it with her but I pray they are too in a permanent situation. Will be anxious to hear more.

    Hugs, Angel Sam and Teddy

    That seems to be the purrfect name for Mandy, and so “Manda” it is., Good job.

  17. Mandy really does suit her.

  18. Mandy is a beautiful name for a beautiful kitty, but she looks so sad.
    Why have She and her kittens not got a propurr fur-ever home and a propurr fur-ever family? It seems She – and you – have given up hope.

  19. that is just wonderful… and maybe Mandy will find her furever home… and she will make her people happy… like the many in that song by barry manilow…

  20. Mom and all of us think Mandy is a perfect name. We are anxious to hear about her permanent home. Thanks for having her as your guest for selfies this week. She is a beauty. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    • We are with the KittiesBlue, we are hoping she is OK and her kittens are being cared for OK too. We know you guys have a LOT of love invested in this little lady and we wish you could get some pictures of her – it would be such a loving end for your story.

      Hail and well met Mandy.

      Marjorie and Silver.
