Five babies now! I think she is done. The newest one is a gray tabby. The black one looks like our cat Pete, with white feet and white on its chest.

I mentioned that I don't like cliche names. Names (human or animal) are important to me. The way Marge got her name was that she was born right after a dear old friend named Marge died. Marge loved cats too.

I'm the same way Barbara. I think long and hard before giving a name to an animal of mine. I tend to like regular names, like humans have, but you wouldn't know it by my two of my current animals. I have a dog named Grommit, and a cat named Blue, but the third is named Bob (my avatar kitty). He was hard to name, but when I thought of the name Bob, it just fit like a glove. I have a cool uncle named Bob.

How sweet Barbara! Congrats on all your new babies!! When Littlebit had her first litter she laied her head in my lap when the first kitten was born & I had to help deliver it because it's foot was stuck. It was an amazing experience! I wasn't around when the 2nd litter was born & with this last litter I sat outside with her until they were all here. We have finally chosen names for the 2 we kept. The bobtail is Sweet Tater(Tater for short) & the calico is Nut. Hubby named them last night after we gave them a bath. They slept in the house for the first time(they had been living in the garage) last night too. Tater slept all night with hubby & Nut roamed our bedroom.

Tater and Nut sound adorable! I'm sure they will love exploring their new house.

Thanks Barbara! I can't wait until we get them moved to the new house. They have kept us up off & on for the last 3 nights because they living in our bedroom right now. I could hang hubby because he bought them a scratching post with a bell on it & they just love playing on it at 3 in the AM!!
