We have Kittens!


The kittens have arrived!  They were dropped off here at 9:45am, and they hit the ground running.  They've been exploring, and getting into everything, and checking out their new toys.  My cat Duncan has given them the once over, and did a little hissing and growling (gotta show the young'ens who's the boss!), but so far he's content to keep a bit of distance.  I think he's going to be perfectly fine with them in a day or two.  They finally decided to take a nap just now.  I've been trying to get pictures, but its been a challenge so far since they've been in perpetual motion.  I'm rethinking the name for the little gray one.  Atticus seems like such a serious name for a sweet little guy like him, so now I'm thinking of naming him Flynn.  The little black one is most likely going to be Dashiell, Dash for short.

And just to add drama, my mother tripped last night and took a header into a nightstand.  My sister took her to the emergency room, and she got a Cat Scan, and she's OK, but she does look like she went a few rounds with Mike Tyson.  And since her eye is swollen shut, they'll be limited activity for her, and no driving.  So, not only will I be dealing with kittens in the coming weeks, I'll also be on maid duty with mom.

And I'm still going to try and catch up on the Clark Kent picspam meme.  I know I missed yesterday, but I think I had a pretty good excuse.

I'm sorry about your mom. I hope she gets better very soon.

I'm glad the kitties are home! I hope you'll be able to take and share those pics of Flynn and Dash soon!

Flynn & Dash are wonderful names for kitties! Glad to hear they're settling in & can't wait for photos.

Your poor Mom - hope the eye heals quickly.

Kitties in Kilts
Duncan, Flynn, and ?

Your kitties are all of Scots-Irish descent I take it? Except for poor Dashiell? I'll have to look up that name. If it is Scots-Irish then it is acceptable. You don't want to start any Celtic clan wars amongst your kitties.

Have fun driving your Mom. I'm sure that she drove you around when you were small. Payback!

ETA: Looked up Dashiell, from Dashiell Hammet (mystery writer), it was an adaptation of his mother's maiden name Da Chiel (whose origins appear to be French). Soo....
Scots-Irish and French, you could be looking at a replay of Mary Queen of Scots! Or the Lymond Chronicles.

Congrats on your new babies! I can't wait until they stay still long enough to snap pictures.

I hope your mom is okay! Is she a pain in the butt when she's sick? My mom is...:-)

I hope all is well!

I saw your kitty pic post before this one and commented there, but I wanted to say how sorry I am about your mom's accident! That must have been kind of scary! I'm glad she's okay, and I hope she's feeling better soon. No doubt the kittens' antics will entertain her while she recuperates. :)

Yay for the new kitties! That's great! :)

I'm so sorry about your mom though. I am glad she's okay and I hope she make a full recovery soon.

Sorry to hear about your mom Valerie and hang in there 'cause it sounds like you have your hands full "nursing" with mom hurt and kittens causing hijinks! Congratulations BTW!
