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:





That's Gizmo.


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.

you know, with a name like that you can't ever feed them after midnight.
