Best Friends

These two are the best of friends- exploring together- hugging, scrapping occaisonaly. N has even started trying very hard to pronounce 'Kitty' properly. It makes me think that this little cat might need a proper name- one that is a bit more solid sounding than 'kitty', more permanent less like what you'd call a stray cat. I was kind of thinking that Prudence would be a good name for her though it might have to be a name that starts with K so as not to confuse poor N- Katerina, Kabira, Katy, Kasey, Callie- I don't know.

I'm a big fan of formal human names for cats- the other two are Nelson and Ferdinand, and our other outside cat is Fats- which is inaccurate now that he's ouside and a healthy weight- but we keep it because it sounds tough- and suits him somehow.

This Kitten is tiny- she's not technically a kitten anymore actually- but she's kept her minute size, and it makes her an ideal pet for the babe as she's the one cat that N can actually lift. We weren't sure if we were going to keep her when we took her in last summer but it seems like she's sticking around- so what do you think we should name this little lady?

  1. Suggestions on this end include "Kay" or even "Kiki" or "Katana" (my fave).

    "Katina"? "Teeny"?
