Mochi, in case you're wondering, is a kind of Japanese rice cake.

That's what THEY say, though why they call it a cake is beyond me. It's made of pounded rice and is really more like ... well, let's just say that I wouldn't put it in MY mouth.

Anyway, Mochi is what the big ones call me, though the only resemblance is that it's also white. And that they eat it.

Uh ... you don't suppose that ... no, they wouldn't ...

Would they?

KittenKaboodle. Go ahead. Laugh.

How'd you like to have a dumb pun for a name?

I can't even blame these Big Ones for it. A different Big One called me that and even after I dumped him and took over here, these Big Ones somehow decided to call me that too.

Listen, I know it may seem far-fetched, and you may laugh at the very idea of it ... but you're already laughing at this stupid name they gave me, so what's the difference? ... anyway, have you ever noticed those sounds they make?

I think they may communicate that way somehow!
