Joe Dalton: First of all we must get used to the manners
and customs here...and to the language!
Averell Dalton: Yes, just so...we must learn how to say: When are we going to eat?!
The fact that Djingiz is extremely interested in food has given him a few names. He licks
his feeding bowl to such an extent that he is almost eating the bowl as well. This has given
him the name Averell Hesseldal referring to the comic book "Tortillas pour les
Daltons" by Morris and Goscinny.
Another name referring to his great appetite is Hoover Hesseldal.
We know several other cats who have been called Captain this-or-that, so Djingiz had to be called
Because of his size he is called Big D like a submarine in a favourite
film of ours, The hunt for Red October, and like a well-known golfplayer,
Now when he is an older cat he is also called "The fat controller"
- like Andy Dalziel in the Dalziel & Pascoe detective novels . When
Bitsjka and Ofelia were alive Djingiz wasn't allowed to control anything,
but Lilit and Sarantoya adores him, so now he is in command. And in fact
he doesn't feel like controlling so much any more, so usually we humans
also let him have his way.
After all the pet name we use most is Lillegut (Little Lad). He is smaller than we are !
