on a happier note

While we were at the vet's last week, Art asked if they had any other kittens up for adoption. They had a bunch, but this fellow picked Art out right away.He is approximately 7 months old. They had younger ones, but it's harder to find homes for the older guys. He's super cuddly and super energetic, and is turning out to be a lot of fun. I think he's got some Balinese in him. His fur is very fine and silky and is medium length on his tail. His body has very Oriental lines with an extraordinarily long tail, but his face and eyes are more round like an American breed. He's very vocal and not shy, having already made friends with Xena and Blackie. Chickie will allow him in the same room, but is clearly not impressed.

We've been bantering around various names for him, Art favouring "y^s", which is Carrier for "snow". It is pronounced "yoo-uss", emphasis on the "uss" with the soft "u" almost silent and the "ss" sounding very hissie. I don't know. I'm tempted to call him Johnny-long-tail. But he's Art's cat .... so he can call him whatever he wants.

Very sweet looking cat - I had one like that when I was a kid - I called him snowball. He looks so lovely.

Now, it's time to send him out to keep the mice from eating the turnips. I think turnip is a good name for him. :-)
