WHY THIS WEIRD NAME?

frei.day.cat [fʁaɪ̯-deɪ-kæt] is obviously a made up word. The first part, frei.day, comes from the Slovenian word for Friday, Petek, which is my surname. This became the English-German version 'freiday'. Frei is the German word for freedom and independence. And finally the "cat" was added, because I am a big fans of the felines. But who isn't.
