The Kitten With No Name (Yet)

Meet the kitty who at this time shall remain nameless (because we haven't yet gotten around to naming him):




Nameless is Tootie's grandson. His mom and dad are Coffee and Copper, who had gone to the household of a friend of my wife's last year. My wife was visiting her friend a couple of weeks ago, saw this little fell and fell in love. And here we are.

so how are you doing in terms of population?

you mentioned a while back that you might be moving in the near future and would need to reduce family size...

name idea -

you could always call him "The Kitty With No Name" much like the Clint Eastwood character "The Man With No Name"

girlfriend & I picked up a rescue for my Mom. we mistakingly thought she needed a new cat after my childhood cat 'Poe" had to be put down. (my sister named that one) we called the rescue by it's tag number "903" as-in: "here 903" "what a cute kitty 903" "you hungry 903"? etc, etc, etc. kinda funny & cute. long story short, Mom didn't want our darn rescue & Dad was like wtf? wound up keeping it & girlfriend named it "Noir" cuz is was black. next girlfriend re-named it "Rita". kinda funny I kept letting my girlfriends name & rename my cat

what a cutie. male or female? maybe a genderless name is in order? those are great other names of those cats. if you keep it "nameless" aka "no name" a short nickname version, might be "Nona" which is what my daughter calls our last remaining sibling, whose official name is Reggie. don't know where she got Nona from, but it's kinda cute

Well, I would've spoken too soon yesterday if I had said that we had managed to cull the herd down to five (well, six, now that the one who has no name yet has joined the family) - Tootie, Mars, Snickers, Cinnamon, and Cricket - after having sent the rest out to new homes. But when I woke up late this morning, my wife greeted me with her "there's something that I want" smile.

As it turned out, my sister in law was at her neighborhood pet shop earlier this morning and scored a very distressed, very pregnant kitty:








While she was there, some expatriate showed up with the cat and said they wanted to leave her there, claiming that they were about to leave the country. The pet shop told them that they could keep her only until closing to, and would just dump her outside afterwards. Overhearing the conversation, my sister in law said that she'd be taking her; she's got a sizeable house and the cat can stay with her other cats and give birth in safety. She named her Dalia.

Then she called my wife . My wife asked me if we could go and get her, but she already knew what I would say to that!

Dalia - "I'm not so sure about this! Well, this big featherless biped seems friendly enough. I do need to think of the kittens welfare..."

What color are your cat's eyes?

Caffè has pretty green eyes. As a kitten they were a unique blue/yellow blend.

haha, wow, very cool! I used to work w/ a woman w/ two different eye colors. are your cat's eyes diff. colors in normal light or did this just happen w/ the flash? maybe each eye was at a slightly diff. angle changing the reflection back to the camera?

I guess one can say his eye are green?

The light reflected from cat eyes in the dark isn't reflecting off their irises, so I doubt it has anything to do with what we usually think of as the color of their eyes. Maybe it has to do with the angle of the light's reflection? Or maybe the tapetum lucidum grows in varying colors. Or the tapetum lucidum reflects the color of the retina? I don't know. CliffordK mentioned that Caffè's eyes are green, though.

Looks like "port" and "starboard" running lights.

odd one...he goes to all that trouble to get into that spot and then turns 'round to survey the room rather than look outside where all of the B - I - R - D - S are flitting about...
