Lol! Cyn, that's funny! I guess the even weirder part is that Mussolini is a girl!
I like the Mouschi name. Is it pronounced Mooshie or Moos-chie or some other way altogether? Maybe we'll start calling our Mussolini that as a nickname. Sometimes I just call her Moose.
The kids tried calling her a jewel name because our other cat was Pearl. They tossed around Diamond, Amethyst, Sapphire. I thought if they were going to go that route, they should have picked Ruby, but I was already calling her Mussolini and it stuck.
