Introducing...

It's been a busy week, but I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce the back terrace kittens. Yes, there's a story here, and I hope to write it in the next day or so. In the meantime, meet:

Kitty 1



Kitty 2









Smokey has been suggested as the name for the grey kitten, and Socks for the black kitten. Delfino and Miguel claim both kittens are girls, but I and another lady think they are both boys. So...the names are up in the air until we know the sex. If anyone has a name for either, please let me know.

Til later...

Oooh, I'm in love, kittens get me every time. Hmm, names. I've always loved "Pantuflas" for kitties with "socks", it's the Spanish word for "slippers". Or, Mayan names, Ixchel and Xtabay for girls? Chac and Kukulkan for boys? If you found them in la jardin, how about flower names? Flora y Rosa? Keep us posted, looking forward to the story!

I like the names Smoky and Socks, no matter if they are male or female. How cute. So are they yours now? I assume so once you take a picture there yours.

They are adorable! I love little kittens blue eyes.....You do a great job naming your pets--can't wait to hear these!

These kittens look like they need a toe count. I see five in front, not allowing for the one on the side, which would make six. Hemingway then becomes a name to consider. They are so cute!

Oh! oooh! ooooooo! and all those xtra cuteness sounds. They are adorable whatever their names. Precious!

How CUTE! I think Smokey and Socks are perfect! A friend has a pretty little grey kitty like that named Penelope.

They're cuties for sure, and I agree that Smoky and Socks work either way. Can't wait to hear the story of how you acquired a second one.

Both names are suitable for either sex. Keep 'em they're good names. I agree, once you start taking pictures, there is no turning back!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your comments and name suggestions, they are all under consideration as the kitties are still unnamed. I am leaning towards 'Patas' for the black one - she is very delicate and her feet look a little odd, I think she has black mixed in with the white, they don't really look like feet, they look like...patas!

Zina - I counted the toes and they are all correct. I think it's the funny feet on Patas that made you say that - they are weird.

A name for the grey one - not sure yet, nothing seems to catch. It was like that with Maya, but when the name came to me, it immediately worked. So we'll see. I need more time with them to get to know them better - been way too busy. I'm so glad they have each other because I'm just the chief cook and bottle washer, and pooper scooper, of course. Still fresh in my mind is how much Maya could eat and then 'discard', and they are just like her only doubled with two of them.
