How I Got My Name meme

I was tagged by Millie for the "How I Got My Name" meme ...

Huckleberry Finn (my brother) and I were named after a line in the movie "Tombstone" spoken by Val Kilmer (as "Doc Holliday"): He says, "I'll be your huckleberry if you'll be my daisy."

Mom always gives middle names to her pets, so I became DaisyMae and my brother became Huckleberry Finn.

My "Maus" name is because Mom paid attention to me ... She'd call me "DaisyMae" and I'd always respond with "Maus" ... One day, she asked me if I wanted to be called "Maus" ... and I responded with "Maus" again, so it stuck. I became DaisyMae Maus ... So we BOTH got to name me!

I'm not taggin' anyone 'cuz I'm not gonna have the use of Mom's computer while she's gone.

We all have middle names. If humans can have middle names, why shouldn't cats?!

It's nice that you were allowed to chose part of your name. They chose Muffin for me. It's not very mancatly or ferocious.

I like how you got your name. You have a very cute name. I played the meme awhile back so I didn't sign the linky thing.

Hugs...G

Dear DMM,

I'm sorry that you are away from your computer because I really need your advice. What do you do with a stinky little boy??? I know you have lots of boys to keep in line at your house. I hope you will come home soon to answer my question.
