Welcome, kittens!

We got new kittens yesterday. Meet the new little darlings:

Number One:


Number Two:


Number Three:


We're still thinking about names. We do keep to both a first letter, and to a theme. For example, or C-litter was named Cato, Cleo, Caruso and Cuatro. (Well, it's a loose theme.) E-litter was singers - Elton, Edith and Eminem. So, the starting letter for this litter is probably going to be H. (We have had C, D, E, F and G - no A or B) I'm thinking spices/condiments - can you think of any starting with H? I have three nice ones - Harissa, Habanero and Honey. (Hummous - but I personally hate that, and would never name a cute kitty something so vile. Sorry all hummouslovers. Maybe I haven't met the right one yet.)

Please help if you have any good ideas!

Those are the cutest things I've seen in my life!

Oh my goodness, how cute! I'm in love with the striped one...I hope you decide to name him/her Habanero. I'm drawing a blank on other spices starting with H....hmm, that should give me something to think about all day!

OMG!! They are ADORABLE Anne! How 'bout Hops? (as in the herb used in beer?)

(With masculinity in tact) I can firmly state that these are the most adorable creatures ever culled for the home.

Aww! How could you not just love kittens!
The only other H spice (of sorts) I could come up with was horseraddish and that is not a great name for a kitten. What about Hazelnut?

I think you should name them something like basil, oregano, and chives..But I'm a total nerd and think that would be the cats meow!!

Ooh, those kittens are very lovely; all kittens are, or rather - all cats are - just remember to give them nice names. I remember a breeder I once met, who gave her first batch of kittens their respective names after Italian soccer-players. The second batch was named after Greek gods. Go figure.

As I sit here looking at your adorable kittens one of my three cats (the huge orange and white male) pounced on my petite sweet little female and attacked her.

Very cute, kittens!!!

Rachel said...

OMGosh, they are so cute. I too am in love with the little stripey one. If you weren't so far away I would beg you to let me give him/her a good home.

do you wonder what they're thinking looking into your big non feline face?

They are so adorable!!! British shorthair kittens are absolutely the cutest ones!!!

debbie said...

Oh. My. God. That stripey one looks just like our Samuel, the cat I DIDN'T blog about today since he didn't do anything foody.

Personally, I think he looks like a Horseradish. Herbes de Provence would be a little unwieldy for such a tiny fellow.

Anne, I can't believe how tiny they are! I hope they all get better soon...
