also, this


She is from the dump in town.  Several of her siblings are still available, I believe, if you have interest in a wee little dump kitty. 

Daddy J went to the dump last week and said it was pitiful – this litter of teeny little kittens was crouched under a dumpster, mewing, and lapping up the dumpster drippings.  Evidently someone dumped them there, hoping they would be adopted.  No mama cat in sight, just wild little babies.  Daddy J said it was hard to get one, he had to grab her by the tail and she was hissing and spitting.

It only took a few hours, really, for her to realize that humans meant well.

The boys love her. 

Rainbow wants to squeeeeeze her.

She is, as yet, unnamed, so suggestions are welcome.  I am partial to Caboodle, because the punster in me has always wanted to say, ‘This is my kitten, Caboodle.’  I am incredibly corny.  She would go by “Cabbie,” I think.  I also like Sundae, as in Ice Cream Sundae, because she is a calico and we see ice cream with caramel and fudge sauce with sprinkles in her fur.  She goes to the vet tomorrow for the full workup.

    How bout Smitten?

    Smitten Kitten….chuckle, giggle, grin.

    I am absolutely positive I can beat you in the game of corny.

    Me and that game? Like BFFS.

    She’s precious. Good for Daddy J for coming to her rescue.

    I like the names Skittles, Mojo, Laverne, Rambo, & Scooter.

    Great suggestions, Meghan and Debra! BTW, Scooter is our generic name for any toddler (e.g. How many scooters are in that family? Aw, what a cute little scooter!). I’m very fond of the name Scooter.

    I think we are leaning toward celebrity names. We have a little bit of a tradition of naming animals real, normal human names (we’ve had Chris, Linda, Oscar, Oswald, Debbie, and Dana, of course) so that would be a nice one to continue.

    Daddy J and I briefly considered Miley, only because of the hilarious mortification that would result in the big boys. But that would probably just be cruel and unusual and they would never forgive us. We’re leaning now toward Angus (as in Young) or possibly Ozzie.

    My current favorite is Sharon, as in Osborne, not any of our friends named Sharon. We love Sharon O. on America’s Got Talent, and there is a SNL skit on Hulu where Amy Poehler does Sharon on Celebrity Jeopardy that cracks the boys up.

    Paula would be pretty good too (O, Paula, AI won’t be the same without you… sniff…) but I’m feeling pretty good about Sharon.
