Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Kitten Update

Hi Everyone - I just wanted to give you all a quick kitten update! So, they are now 3 weeks old (3 weeks and one day today actually) and well, the race is narrowed! Io and Luna are going to be staying with Megan's sister - they are both super cuties and will have a great home there!! So they are keeping one kitten and one tiny bear (Io always looks like a little tiny bear to me because he is all black). I think I had already mentioned that Megan's mom is going to be taking Han and he and Louise seem to hang out a lot so they were thinking that she should take those two and we would get Stella and Twist, who also hang out together. Now, I don't want to make the tough decision (I am a wuss - I admit it), so I am letting her make her choice first. So if it ends up that way, that is awesome, and if she goes with different picks, that is awesome too! Seriously, every time I see a picture I think oh, that one is perfect, then the next picture of a different one, I think the same thing - I think it about each of them!

They haven't had official confirmation if Io, Han and Twist are boys, but they are pretty sure - I am guessing in the same way it was VERY obvious Barney was a boy, even at 4ish weeks. I am so super excited - this weekend is all about starting to get the bedroom ready for them to hang out in - cleaning, organizing, kitten-proofing. I keep looking at the website, and trying to get the cats to look at it - they have no interest at all.

My biggest issue is this - if we do get Stella and Twist, (and Twist remains a boy, to be renamed Gus) do we keep the name Stella, which I do like, or do I stick with my first choice of Trixie and keep Stella for our next girl? See it would be a little funny to go with Trixie and then use Stella for the next girl, because Lola was originally Trixie. So it would be like passing down the previous name, if you follow me. If any genders change, there is a chance of switching around because I know Megan's mom would like an orange girl (I would too, but she should still get first pick) and I have known quite a few orange girls in my time, so who knows. And who knows, she may decide she would like Stella and Han, or Han and Twist (though I think she wants at least one girl too - and one boy one girl pair for each seems perfect).

Oh, and I know I have mentioned it before - Megan is keeping Mackie - she has another kitty, Tini and they seem to get along ok already (there is a picture on the site of them eating near each other).

How exciting!

Old Kitty said...

Oh wow!! I am so excited for you!

You are so right - they are all so super adorable!

Gus is a lovely name and so are Trixie and Stella. Oh gosh. I do like Trixie though because it makes a really sweety kitty sound.

Awwww but the best thing is that Han and Twist or Gus, Trixie or Stella, Mackie and Io and Luna are all going to wonderful forever homes! Yay!

Take care

So many decisions but what is most exciting is that you will be getting two kittens! We think you'll be able to pick the right names for them once you really get to know their purrsonality and whatever you decide will be purrfect!
