Kind of sounds like the lead in to a bad joke, doesn't it?? MOL
There were some great suggestions for names - thanks!! We tend to steer away from people names. Mom searched "french pastries" and discovered she couldn't pronounce or spell most of them, so those were out.
But....she searched "french cities" and got some interesting hits. That being said, meet the French city kittens:
She is super sweet and kind of chatty.
She has seen Daiquiri outside the door and seems pretty unfazed.
Of the kittens, the tortie and one black kitten are girls - they are now Calais (the tortie) and Avignon
The boys are Lyon and Marseille.
Calais is totally friendly and outgoing. The boys are getting there, though one is more skittish than the other. Avignon is a total scaredy cat and mom is going to have to work with her. Hopefully they will settle in more as time goes on. (it's only been a couple of weeks) They are doing well and playing.
The little orange girl is Orleans.Some sad news however: Mom got home from work last Thursday and the orange baby had crashed....mom rushed her to the vet but the kindest thing to do was help her over the Bridge. Based on her size and eye color, it was evident she wasn't related to the other 4 kittens. Lille is a good mom but not overly into the whole idea. Mom had bought kitten milk and was going to be supplementing Orleans but it got bad before she had a chance.
I Am so sorry about the orange baby, very sad. I like the name choices.ReplyDelete
