Perhaps you’ve seen the commercials for the new Disney movie Bolt. It’s the heartwarming story of a dog (voiced by John Travolta) who tries to make it back to his owner (Miley Cyrus) with the help of a cat (Susie Essman from Curb Your Enthusiasm) and a hamster (some guy I hadn’t heard of). I haven’t seen it yet, but according to CatChannel.com “Mittens is tough as nails, living on the streets of New York and exerting her feline power over the other animals in the neighborhood.”
That sounds great. I’m sure she’s extremely “tough as nails” with a name like Mittens. Seriously, Disney? You couldn’t come up with a more creative name than Mittens? Was Fluffy already taken? Mrs. Whiskers too long?
