And I have MICE at home, don't know if in US people keep mice, but we do, they are so popular here, not chipmunks, though I had chipmunks some years ago, not hamsters, they are...hmmm... smaller than rats(that are wild) and bigger than wild mice - some sort of "decorative mice-rats".
Never thought about a cat, the fact that she might scratch the walls, mark territory, and some others....they are scaring, maybe cause of this I have only mice at home But nevertheless they are very nice and clever too, at least they do not bite and scratch
And my mouse Alice gave birth to little mice a month ago, my friends took practically all of them to their place, and my sis and I have left a girl-mouse, and as in Star Wars there's not so many attractive for us female-characters, we named her Leia. By the way, sisters friend has left the name Luke for her boy-mouse, Alice's cub too.
I can say that it's strange for me to name a pet after favourite character, just can't understand... Think if my pet was named after Fett, and it sounds a bit weird...
Nevertheless, I think that naming a CAR in such a way is a great idea!!!
