new kitty!


I have a little dilemma this morning. I can’t make the bed because our new kitty has decided to sleep in, and I simply can’t make her move. She’s just too cute. And she looks too content for me to disturb her little nap spot. And can I just say I am SO excited she’s joined our family? We got her on Sunday from a kitty rescue group called Community Concern for Cats, a non-profit organization that rescues stray and feral cats, and she is just the sweetest thing. I’ve never actually chosen a cat before – they’ve all come to me one way or another – and we were a little worried about how she’d adjust to her new home. Well, as soon as we let her out of her carrier she was purring and exploring and basically establishing herself as queen of the castle. Of course, the ladies at the adoption facility were very persuasive about the benefits of having at least two cats, so she may not be an only cat for long…
Only one problem: we’re having a little trouble with her name. She was named KitKat at the shelter, but it just doesn’t seem to fit her. Anyone have ideas?

    I came across your blog from “The Fabric Shopper” website. I love the scrap rag bag tutorial that you posted. TFS!!
    Your new cat is beautiful. She looks so lovey and snuggly. I think any name you choose will suit her perfectly.

    I also became a follower of your blog. When you have a chance, please come by mine.

    Have a wonderful day!!

    I was going to say Marmalade too (but it's not very original). Perhaps Valencia (a juicy type of orange) or Mandarin (shortened to Mandy)?

    So glad to see that she is happy to be living at your house!

    That's funny, because Marmalade was what I said first too! Dave thought it was too long, but I might need to revisit that one. I think it's cute. I love Valencia, too!

    Alisha, Thanks for checking out the blog and becoming a “follower”! Your site looks great!

    Luco suggests “Marmite”, which is a little shorter than Marmalade, and quirky which I'm sure you'd like…and it's delicious on buttered toast. Hey, what about “Buttered Toast with Marmite”? Okay, maybe a little long. She's super adorable.

    Carmela? Canela (Spanish for Cinnamon)? Or Cinnamon? Nutmeg? (Nutty for short, David says), Clementine (as in, oh my darling)? Creamsicle? Lilikoi?

    I thouhgt about spices when I saw the photos of your lovely new kitten. And Nutmeg also came to mind! 🙂

    Ooh, I like the spice direction! We've been calling her Sadie for now, but I like Nutmeg. Cinnamon is cute too. And Marmite! Though she's kinda feminine for Marmite… Thanks for all the suggestions!

    She's totally a Tallulah. You could call her Lula for short.

    How cute! She looks like a Maine Coon type maybe… my suggestion is Poppy.

Comments, questions? We'd love to hear from you!
