@Jim, I have kids that were really into the Avatar the Last Airbender cartoon series, and there is a character from that show named Suki (spelling?)...so I think that is how we ended up with that name.

We adopted our cat, Racey, last October and she is the most amazing cat! Her name is Racey because she loves to run around and "race"!
