Notice something in this picture?

Look closely. In order to get this you must know that our cat’s name is Walvis. We named him this after the coastal Namibian town of Walvis Bay. It was a place that Shannon and I had great memories from and thought it fitting for our cat.

So here’s why I’m posting this. We’ve had our cat for 3 years and never thought anything of his name until yesterday while in Hermanus. With my great brain power I deduced that Walvis translates into Whale. We named our cat ‘Whale’ in Dutch/Afrikaans. Wow. Sorry buddy.
