Beck called today and said that she was at her vet's office,and there were some kittens there that I needed to see.
She came and picked me up, and when I saw them, it was all over. There was a little guy about 8 inches long, (10 weeks) with a lovely cream colored body, black face, ears, and paws. Blue eyes, of course. He's a perfect little Siamese!
I had hoped that the perfect kitten would just appear in my life, and this one did. He's adorable. Lucy doesn't much care about him, she's sniffed and that's about it. She's more concerned with her own beagly thunder phobia today, as it has thundered non-stop since like 5 am. I woke to a shivering little beagle pressed up against me, and she's followed me everywhere since then. It is practically dark outside right now at 7 pm, and it's raining hard.
Emily, on the other hand, is extremely worried about this new addition. She wants to lick it and nibble it. He tolerates that for a couple of moments then bats at her. She's pretty persistent, though, and I don't want her chasing him back under the couch, so I am carrying him with me in my shoulder bag that is meant for a camera. It's a fabric bag measuring about 8 inches by 6 inches, and he fits perfectly. He seems rather content. He's sleeping in there now.
So, I need name ideas. He's a boy, and I generally prefer human names, but I am up for anything. I have been thinking Henry? Andy suggests "Frank" (old blue eyes), which I kind of like, too. Becky suggested "Pancreas", but I don't want to traumatize him with a name like that.
Anyone have any good ideas?
Also, how to get Emily to calm the f** down and quit trying to chase and nibble him? Hopefully when he's more adjusted he'll scratch her and take care of that.
