We adopted two kittens today,a boy and a girl.

They're black-and-white and only 3 months old.

Now we just have to pick names for them.

Pow and Boo -—— after your PowersBoothfan? Somehow, names just seem to come along that fit. Please pat them for me. And a little scratch to their ears.

I can’t get the cat to even do a weapons check at the front door.

And what is it with all the dead bodies on the porch????

Black and white kittehs are referred to as “Tuxedo” cats. The boy can be “Tux” and the girl “Ceda” or “Cedo”?

We found one or two short blasts from a compressed air can used for cleaning keyboards to be even MORE effective than a spray bottle of water. It’s nice, too, because you won’t get anything wet.

There must be a School of Boat Naming to annoy unimaginative people as well. We had one in our marina called “Boat” and the dingy was called “Dingy”.

I heard that cats get very annoyed with the names we pick out for them. We call them Fluffy or Snowball or Kitty, when they know that their REAL name is Nefertiti or Cleopatra or Your Highness! ;o)

The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there’s the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey—
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter—
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that’s particular,
A name that’s peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there’s still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover—
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Effanineffable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

Made me think of jelly bean and jelly belly. Bean and Belle for short.

But remember:

She thought that giving animals saint’s names was NOT TO BE DONE.

Aww, heck. If geographical locations, buildings, boats etc. can be dedicated to the holiness of a saint, why not a loved cat or dog, living creatures made by God?

Although if you have a BAD kitty or doggie, names like Nero, Diocletian, Madame DuFarge or Rasputin might be called for.

Had a really hard time naming our new puppy. Son chose Ollie after Oliver North. I call him Oliver, but I still occasionally call him Max after the dog we lost a few months ago.

I heard that recited in, of all places, the schlocky sci-fi movie Logan's Run. Peter Ustinov, playing an old forgotten man living on his own with cats in the U.S. Capitol, recited it to Logan 5 and Jessica.

Brandy and Wine, a battle George Washington lost, but what the heck, he made up for it later.

Any time one of them gets out and lost, you can stand on your front steps and yell, “BRANDY, BRANDY”, or “WINE, WINE.”

I’m sure your neighbors will be glad to supply what they presume to be your need.

Years ago, I got an email from a newspaper story about a family who had two kittens. They named the white kitten Angel and the black kitten Satan.

Satan disappeared and they assumed he got outside and was lost. What really happened is he got into the wall through a hole during a renovation project.

The story had really cute quotes from the daughter. “I miss Satan.” “Mama, I think I hear Satan in the wall!”

Congratulations! We have a brother and sister that we got as babies. They are six years now and one minute they are giving each other a bath and the next minute they are beating the crap of each other. Girl cat likes to play the victim if we’re watching - but she can hold her own. Girl cat is a Daddy’s girl and Boy cat is a Mamma’s boy. So everyone is happy.
