Well, these cats weren't going to name THEMSELVES, ya know. :)
Last Sunday, I took mama and the litter to the local adoption center for which I am fostering so that mama could be leuk/FIV tested (negative! Yaaaaaaay!), everybody could be wormed, and I could have my suspicions confirmed as to the gender of the kittens. I THOUGHT I had one boy and four girls, but I am ... not the best when it comes to sexing kittens (Yes, that's what it's called. I KNOW.), so I thought I'd have the woman who runs the rescue give them a quick once-over. Sure enough, it was a boy and four girls!
When mama got leuk-tested, they needed a name for the records. Like, they needed a name RIGHT THEN. "Ummmmmmm..." I stammered. "How about ... Lightning? Because she has a lightning bolt on her face?"
Lightning it is.
I had a fairly good idea what I wanted to name a couple of the kittens, but nothing was set in stone, and I had NO idea what some of them should be named, so I outsourced it to Facebook. And the names are:
Dora the Explorer:
and the only boy, Calvin!:
