Our new arrivals! (Kittens!)

Post by stu1883 » Tue September 20th, 2011, 5:35 pm

I thought I would post this picture showing you our new kittens, which we picked up from a local cat sanctuary last night.

The tabby boy is called Boomer at the moment, and Nicki is thinking of a new name for him.

I have been tasked with renaming the female who is currently called Fidget. Her markings are really unusual, she has a black body with the exception of a small white patch on her chest, yet her tail is almost completely silver with black stripes running through it.

At the moment I am considering calling her Badger! If any of you have suggestions I am all ears. Thanks everyone.

Aww! Kittens! They are adorable.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Our newest pair -- well, not so new any more! -- are Sophie and Phantom. Phantom got his name as he promptly hid from us in the basement for two days, and also because he was solid grey; Sophie when I first met her simply 'told' me her name, as it were. She was this beautiful, dainty little thing with the sweetest face -- the shelter had named her Stacy, but that name just did not seem to fit at all.
