We have a new batch of kittens--the first in a long time--that are exactly one week old today. There are five of them and we're pretty sure there are three girls and two boys.
We've never really been cat people in our family...my grandfather has always hated cats...I mean hated cats, so growing up my dad, being the typical boy and wanting to be just like his daddy, hated cats too. It wasn't until we moved here to our small farm and got a few of our own outdoor cats that he realized how nice they can be. I would still say we are dog-people, but I do really love my kitties. There's just something about a week old kitten that crawls right up into your heart and...you just can't help liking the sweet small things.
You'll have to help me think of some ideas for names for them. Right now they are nameless...and even though I'm not sure which ones or how many we're going to keep, I just hate the thought of it. *smile* We've had such a wide variety of names for our cats over the few years we've been here we've just about run out of ideas at the moment. We've had half-way normal sorts of names like Willum (and his namesake, Wilhemina), to the down-right silly ones like CryBaby, to the whimsical, taken from a beloved childhood storybook, Violet Pickles...
Do you have any suggestions?
