Meet the new crew
At this point, I am fairly sure that there are two boys and two girls. I am, sadly, not very good at telling gender until they're a little older. ANYway, they're all doing well and full of beans.
It was time to pick out names. I would LOVE to name a litter of four Eeny, Meenie, Miny and Moe, but I don't think it would be exactly fair to the one who got stuck with "Meenie" (i.e., "Meanie"), so I abstained.
THIS one practically named himself:
THIS pretty little tortie girl has ears that look like they've been tipped with paint:
So I named her Tippy.
THIS dude is sportin' a 'stache:
So I stuck a hat on him and named him Poirot. BONJOUR.
And THIS little sweetie?:
She is what is called a "Mackerel" tabby, because the broken-up tabby stripes on her sides (supposedly) look like fish bones. I was going to go ahead and name her Mackerel, but I'm pretty sure she's a girl, so then I thought, well, Mackerelle, but then it got shortened to Mackie, and she's kind of a tomboy, so Mackie it is.
Gizmo, Tippy, Poirot and Mackie. There ya go.
