    New kitty needs a name

    In the putting your pet to "sleep" thread, I mentioned my temporary fostering of a baby kitten from the humane society. This stop-gap measure was intended to help my surviving kitty and me with our sadness at the transition.

    A couple weeks later, the agency rang to ask did I want to release my houseguest into one of their adoption events. Nope, she's a keeper.

    And now she needs a name, besides Yoursocute or Stopit or Nobiting or Babykitty.



    The big blond is Thumbsie (extra digits fore & aft)


    And she's a Democrat.


    Although there's a striking resemblance to the Chessie kitty, for 21 years a cat named Tessie was with me. Would prefer to not repeat the name sound. (Been considering something similar to Night Train since that's when she decides to get weird.)


    Oh, and it has to fit well with "kitty, kitty, kitty." None of this Piscacadawadaquoddymoggin stuff.

    Thanks!

    Jennyanydots, from T.S. Eliot's "The Old Gumbie Cat."

    I have a Gumbie Cat in mind, her name is Jennyanydots;
    Her coat is of the tabby kind, with tiger stripes and leopard spots.
    All day she sits upon the stair or on the steps or on the mat;
    She sits and sits and sits and sits--and that's what makes a Gumbie Cat!

    I love the picture of her watching TV!

    How about Tara? No particular reason; it just came to mind when I looked at the photos.

    Hmm, I have to think about this some more.

    My little girl kitties over the years included Smokey, Sasha, Sheba, Skittles, and Saidie. I also had a Squirrel (ie, Squirrelly). There was also a Midnight and a boy named Skunk, but she's the wrong color.

    One of my friends has Tinkerbelle (her daughter named him before she was gender-conscious) and Panda. Some of the neighborhood felines with suitable names include Blue, Precious, Sophie, and Lily.

    LOL...been viewing that spycam at 1am again, Dan?

    Some of these are just great! I prefer non-human names (cutesie ones, like Blanche, Tuxie, Kitto, Pancho, Thumbsie, Tessie).

    Carbon-dated her to about August 24, my late mama's birthday, so I was looking for a Louisiana connection. Recalled the sad story about the tiger encaged at the truck stop (I saw him once) so I looked up the town. Uh, no.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    What a cute kitteh!

    She looks tech-smart, so I would suggest any of the following:

    gigabyte or terabyte
    hashtag
    backslash
    64-bit
    browser

    I like to try out common names in other languages.

    Kitten in Hungarian is cica. Not bad. Pronounced see-ka. In Finnish it is kissanpoikanen.

    I'm still a fan of Chou-Chou.

    One of the things I noticed and then picked up when living in NOLA(ooooh, how about NOLA?) was how people used "Boo" as a term of endearment. She could be your little Boo. (Or Boo-Boo but then you run into the problem of Honey Boo Boo.)
