    They have names!

    Not that they'll ever show up when they're called, but my wife finally sorted through the suggestions (thanks, everyone, for your thoughtfulness and originality). She decided what we would call the critters.

    Meet Mango and Pumpkin: (Pumpkin on the left, Mango on the right)

    You need to at least give them a last name, too. Cats have complex names, and since you didn't go with Frick and Frack, you should at least use Katzenjammer.

    Well if you think of a Mango & a Pumpkin as colors (orange) then it could be boys names.

    Have you perused the "Bathtub Adventures' thread mayhaps? You may have to rescind the kitteh names due to moral terpitude on the part of their nominal progenitor.

    I will bow to your superior wisdom, and henceforth refer to them as "Mango Foo" and "Pumpkin Foo".

    As to telling them apart... yeah, it's tough. Mango, however, has dark interior to his nostrils. Pumpkin's are pink. OTOH, can you imagine how tough it is to look inside a squirming kitten's nose?

    Here's the bad news.

    Pretty soon you won't have two cute kittens you'll have cats.

    Those kitties are awesome.

    I had a male cat named Pumpkin once, perfectly acceptable name for a boy cat. Well, his full name was Rusty Pumpkin but we always called him Pumpkin.
