It is finally Naming Day


This naming day was generously brought to you by four wonderful contributors who helped me raise money for the DCIN. I was blessed to have a few other contributors and it means the world to me. Thank you.

But you didn't come here to hear me wax poetic.. you came to see the kittens and get to know their names.. 

The first kitten to get a name was our little black girl. Tracy made a donation to name a kitten Salome after one of her former kitties. She also suggested the nickname of Mimi which I think is a really good name for her.

Hello Salome, aka Mimi

The next donation came in from Caroline who picked out names for three of the kittens; Winged kitten - Angelo, Girl Cow Kitten - Holly, Boy Cow Kitten - Frasier.

Angelo
Holly
Frasier
I then received a donation from Roberta. She originally didn't have a name suggestion, but after seeing my handsome little black boy suggested the name Romeow. I mentioned that I seriously had wanted to name him Flower but that seemed inappropriate for a boy, and she mentioned she had wanted to name a cat Flower as well. I have been considering giving him a middle name, because this boy has more personality than any kitten I have had in a long time. He is incredibly attention seeking, not afraid to ask for attention.  Not to mention he is obnoxiously cute and is not afraid to show it off.

Romeow Flower McGillicuddy - or maybe not
No one seemed to want to donate to name the momma cat, so I wondered what to call her. I REALLY wanted to call her Scrappy, but that name simply didn't fit her. I was going to name her Miz Thing, but that also didn't seem quite right.  I was trying to come up with something when a final donation came in from Edith who suggested that I call her Katie, which I like very much.

The kittens are doing okay. They are still having some diarrhea and they still seem paler than I would like, so I took a stool sample into the shelter from one of the kittens who pooped right in front of me and had a lot of liquid and meowed quite uncomfortably; I know because Katie came over and tried to take the kitten out of the box. They didn't find anything so we are going the probiotic route. I gave them some raw goat milk and 12 hours later they already seemed more robust. I've started the probiotics and will give them more goat milk and I'm sure they'll go from okay to great in no time.

  2. I love all of their names and I'm glad you added Flower to Romeow. It is a unisex name. I will name my next kitty Flower, male or female. He has a good Irish name, too. He is going to be a charmer and as sweet as his name. Okay, so I'm partial to Romeow. LOL Thank you, Connie.

  5. Congratulations to them all, on their (foster) names. Maybe some of the humans who adopt them will keep them too, which would be cool. I'm seriously in love with little Angelo, btw. :-)

  12. Great names! Goat milk the awesome healing medicine. We used to run a small dairy goat farm. All the cats would follow us out to the milking barn and sit and wait to get squirts of milk right from the source. I got pretty good at hitting those small mouths. We even gave them a small amount when fed. Had cats living to 18 and longer.
