The new addition to our family…

“Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.– George Eliot

What greater gift than the love of a cat
—Charles Dickens

Long story short…my friend Shelly has taken care of this stray kitten who lived it’s whole life in the storm drain at the end of her driveway. It had a little sibling, but, unfortunately, the kitty got killed. This little guy was all alone and Shelly felt she needed to find him a home. She couldn’t let him live with them because her daughter is really allergic to cats. So, she put an email out to all the girls in our bunko group and guess who got suckered in? Yep, me. I saw him and couldn’t resist letting him stay with us, and my other 4 cats. Chaz, Fletcher, Cosmo and Oliver have all welcomed ‘the baby’ in with open paws. I know, I am turning in to the crazy cat lady. Here is an actual excerpt from an email my oldest son Dave set me from college the other night…

“The cat looks really cute, although seriously mom, you can’t get any more until some die. 5 is definately the limit.” — DAVID

OMG, my kid thinks I’m nuts. I vow from now on there will be no more cats at the Franz household. Five felines are my limit. Hear that animal lovers, felineophiles, animalitarians everywhere? Don’t ask me to adopt another cat….nope my door is closed, there’s no room at the inn–whatever. Cats live a long time. I don’t want to be one of those old ladies living alone that dies in her house and gets eaten by her cats.

Okay, so now I have this cute little guy. He needs a name. I can’t seem to come up with anything. I would love suggestions for really artsty, creative names and post them in the way of comments. Can you all recommend a good name? After 1 week I will pick my favorite three names from your suggestions and put them up in a poll. Everyone can then vote and the most popular will become his name. There will be a special prize for the winner of the suggested name.

Okay, ready. Set. THINK OF A NAME!
