kitten name: revealed!

alas, this is the post that may cause JMC to never speak to me again.

i've named the kitten! but.. um... i didn't name her tonks. even though that's what the poll consensus was. I'M SORRY! I'M REALLY REALLY SORRY! it's just that.. well... she's all delicate and dainty and not loud and rambunctious. instead she's shy, and quiet, and very sweet, and... just not a tonks. oliver is a tonks, frankly.

so i went with bella. it's such a sweet, lovely name, and if she ends up being evil once she grows up a bit... well hell, perfect, i'll just call her by her FULL name of bellatrix.

in other news, she and oliver are still getting along famously. the catch-oliver's-tail game apparently never gets old, and this morning he was flopped on the floor so i could pet him, and she came up to his head, PUT HER LITTLE FRONT PAWS ON HIS FORHEAD, and started licking his ears. and then i died.

so: i'm sorry, JMC! also everyone who voted for tonks in the poll! but trust me on this, bella suits her really, really well. and bella & oliver sound pretty nice together, no? (hint: answer is YES.) a few more pictures here for anyone interested..

  4. You're becoming the crazy cat lady with all these kitty posts. Does that bother you? :-)

  5. I was looking at these pictures earlier, on Flickr, and I was very proud of myself for surviving and not dying of the cute. But then you posted them on your blog and that was the last straw. And now I am dead.

  13. Sooooooooo cute!!! And even though I also voted for Tonks, from how you describe her, Bella sounds perfect. (But I hope she does not grow into a Bellatrix.)

  15. She'd have to have pink fur for me to consider Tonks. But Bella sure is cute!
