The naming of the kittens


So the kittens really haven't been that open with what they wanted to be called, so I decided to just pick a theme and go with that. This photo was part of the inspiration...


but mostly because of her..


Lena does have those owl eyes, and the little tabby girl likes to sit there with her tail wrapped around her toes and ends up looking like she has an owl profile, so I started considering them the "Owlettes". I was hoping there would be some interesting names of breeds of owls, but sadly whomever named owls were not very creative. Googling owl names I found this website which tells me that owls are the sacred animal of January so I was even more determined to give them owl names.  After consulting a few friends I am proud to introduce..

Tabby with white toes is now Athena
The solid tabby is now Tawny
Tuxie girl is now Glimfeather
Each name was bestowed with kisses and an abundant meal, then there was much rejoicing in the form of wrestling and running around attacking random things.

Btw, several of you have commented how much you love the dot on Glimfeather's head.. I wanted to point out that I think it looks a bit like a heart.. well if the fur wasn't so long you might be able to see it better..
