Coal was adopted from Rhy and Golden’s Winter Wonderland Rehoming, Christmas 2019. He was the best little Christmas gift to receive!<3 He was the first pet to steal my heart when I first saw the thread. I looked through each other pet, and several caught my eye. However, I knew I was most likely to bring only one pet home, so I decided to bet entirely on Coal, knowing he was the one I bonded the strongest with. Turns out I was the only applicant for him
:O and there was another pet I had bonded with, Kringle the russian blue. Kringle, who I decided to rename Indigo, was added to my application later on in the rehoming when nobody had still applied for him. I ended up being the sole applicant for him, as well, and they are both happily in my home still.
His name has several meanings, actually. Like, four. Firstly, his name was Coal when I applied for him! It was a winter themed rehoming, Santa brings kids on the naughty list coal, this guy got his name for that winter theme. Second, my middle name was almost Cole. My mom had it picked out for her son, but she never technically gave birth to a boy, I just transitioned at 18. I picked the first name she had chosen as one of my middle names. Coal reminded me of that same Cole I almost was. Plus, his partner was going to be Sunflower, which is my favorite flower. I guess I’m projecting onto my foopets openly now lol. Reason 3: My bf and I watched a Christmas movie with Vanessa Hudgens called The Knight Before Christmas. It was pretty terrible in a great way, it’s one of our favorites. The Knight’s name is Cole, Sir Cole. Which sounds like “circle,” and I believe that pun is made in the movie at least once, but I can’t remember. My bf and I found that just hilarious. And the last reason, which is because of the song “Circles” by Post Malone. When Eli and I are driving around, this song comes on a ton with FM radio. Every time I hear the chorus, I think “running in Sir Coles”, or now, “running in Sir Coals,” which is also hilarious. I have taken the liberty of posting a screen cap of Sir Cole from the movie, as well as an audio clip of Circles my Post Malone~
