Abide is a complex word that means variously “lives in,” “goes in accord with,” and “co-exists in harmony with.” I named my cat, the Dude, after the movie The Big Lebowski. It is a 1998 movie starring Jeff Bridges (The Dude), John Goodman, Phillips Seymour Hoffman, Sam Elliott and many more.
Here is a link of the last part of movie if you want to take a couple of minutes to see it. There are many more links out there of videos about the movie if you care to look around on YouTube.
Also above in the photo is my Dude after I brushed him relaxing on the screen room table in the shadows. My reflection of course with the camera to the left.
Have you seen the movie The Big Lebowski?
Now I know how your cat got his moniker “Dude”. Cool name for your ??????lovely looking cat.Report
Never seen the movie, but I will look out for it
It is a classic, unlike other movies.
I want to be a cat in your home. He lives a royal life, even if he had another name his life would be the same.
How kind, I do spoil my babies.
Now I know how your cat got his moniker “Dude”. Cool name for your lovely looking cat.
Thanks, he really is a laid back Dude.
That is okay with me since one cat that was recently adopted has the name “Bert” after Gilbert of the kids cartoon “Calliou” fame which is Gilbert.
I, for one, am glad to know the Dude is out there; takin’ it easy for all us sinners…
Yes indeed he is my friend.
But, do you have to swear so much?
The swearing I could do without for sure.
that cat ties the whole room together
Yes he does, no matter what room he is in.
Dude seems so pleased … I did not see the movie
Yes he is always relaxed and usually sleeping.
I did not watch this movie dear Carol
It was a classic, pretty funny.
The Big Lebowski? No idea…
He always looks so chilled lol
Yes it was a funny movie. And yes the Dude is chillaxed. 🙂
He looks so content and relaxed, it’s always a pleasure to see him!
Thank you Ellie, he is a spoiled baby. And is always relaxed.
I thought I had watched the film but it was uncertain … I forgot! But surely the Dude is the name that suits him!
You should watch it again my friend, full of laughs.
Yes, I think I will…
Your Dude looks relaxed, he’s sure the real Master of the table. And the video about The Big Lebowski is very curious!!!
Thanks, he actually is relaxed all the time. You should watch the entire movie.
