Oh, no - sorry about that! I had no idea that would happen.

I want to know why Monkey isn't animated for ONLY one hour a day! When does this kitten stage end? Or am I doomed for letting her be called Monkey.

She'll be running around "kitteny" for a few years.

from: Cat Years to People Years Converter

0 - Birth
1 - Sexual Maturity
2 - Physical Maturity
3 - Adulthood

That seems about right to me. At least they are only adolescents for about 2 years.

Boy, did this thread get derailed big time.

I name my appliances. Washer, dryer, sink, stove. You get the idea. My appliances are here to serve a purpose. Not be pampered by naming them. Their performances will not improve with a name.

If you consider assigning a model designation to an inanimate object "naming", then yes I have done so. One such object was the CY-BORG-1. Yes it was based on a "Borg Cube".

All my appliances have names.... there's "fridge", "coffee maker", "juicer", etc.

My smartphone GPS is the only inanimate object that I've given a human name. I call it Margaret, after my wife's elderly Aunt. Not only does the voice sound similar but, like old Aunt Margaret, it also has a tendency to sometimes get turned around the wrong way.
