Rest in peace Smivick..
For those of you who saw yesterday's post but might have missed the update.. the kitten did not make it. I have no idea if this was Smivick or not, (I don't think so I saw a glimpse and I think this one is a girl but I could be wrong)
I am kicking myself now for not taking portrait shots this weekend. They were leaking stool everywhere and I just didn't want to bother them any more than I had to.. I even thought getting the videos was a bit much.
What really gets me beyond the fact that this is the second kitten this year, this is also the second boy kitten of a set of four kittens that look so much a like that had two boys and two girls in the set. I am absolutely floored by the similarities to Henri Sigmund
Beyond the loss of the kitten, a small part of me cringes every time I type Smivick, because I am really loving that name and now I don't get to 'use' it.. I could just see his adoption card, and the look on people's faces and I could imagine that name bring smiles to people's faces.. I would love to give the name to his twin brother, but I can't do that.. Maybe I'll save it for a future litter and call him Little Smivick..
and now since the seven dwarf them is right out, I've got to come up with names.. How about we honor Smivick and you take your initials (or those of someone you love) and turn them into a name.
