A Purrfectly Fitting Name For A Cat

When this handsome kitty's owner called a few months ago to inquire about our pet sitting services we were more than happy to answer all of her questions and of course we had a few questions to ask as well. Our questions entail: When will you need our services? Would you like to set up a no obligation "meet and greet"? Where do you live? All of her answers were easy to comprehend until....

she revealed the name of her cat! If you are guessing that her feline's name is Charles Shaw you are incorrect but you are getting warmer wetter! If your second guess is that our 4-legged friend was named 2 Buck Chuck, the nickname for Charles Shaw wines, an inexpensive brand of wine sold through Trader Joe's then you are correct. The wine is famous because it's the first decent wine available in a glass bottle AND with a cork for $2.00. 

I confess that I've never had a sip of this wine but from the looks of things I think these boys had too many glasses of it and my poor fiance' didn't seem to mind one bit (pun intended)!

And speaking of glasses, 2 Buck Chuck was too drunk to realize that he mistook wine glasses for his pet sitter's glasses!  No more wine for you, mister!

 As you can see, 2 Buck Chuck has a name that suits him purrfectly but he needs to leave the $2.00 wine in the fridge, don't you agree?
