That's when you give your loudest fake laughter and comment with an equally insincere voice, "GEE. I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER HEARD THAT one before!!" Then just walk away. That usually shuts them up.

My name is Cat. It's short for Catherine, but I don't like going by Catherine or Cathy really. I was always sick of people misspelling my name with a K. So, if I figured if I shorten it to "C-A-T", people will spell it correctly, right? I mean, come on... we learned how to spell Cat in KINDERGARTEN. It didn't work. Yay for American schools.

ANYWAY, (Yeah, there's a point hiding in here somewhere), I constantly get meowed at.. or I get words that begin with Cat. Catatonic, etc...

So yeah, I totally relate to you.

You should change your name to Solstice. Then most people wouldn't have the slightest clue as to what your name means. ^_^

Unfortunately, the majority of people that do/have done that to me are people I work with or work for, or are customers. If they don't fit into those three categories, I usually just deadpan at them. That tends to shut them up too!

And *cough* I would spell "Cat" "Kat" if I thought it was someone's name. But I blame that on the norm of how it's spelled for someone's name! ^^;

*Snort* Actually, it's why I went with my middle name for a while in high school. Problem is, my middle name is... out of the norm. (Kiska) I decided Summer was far better than people constantly making kissing noises at me. Ugh. People are stupid.
