About The Name

Why “burnt muffin”?

We adopted a kitten in 2001.

“She’s a Burmese cross and she looks like Sylvester the Cat”, the owner tells me.

We called her Muffin. My mother-in-law took one look and said, “Why Muffin?
She does not look like one, a burnt muffin maybe, but definitely not a muffin.”

Don’t you think “burnt muffin” is a cool nickname?

(It has nothing to do with the fact that I love muffins and have occasionally blackened the tops.)

    It is a cool nickname and a great way to remember a beloved fur-family member.
