Breaking News!

Tatiana and the Tinies have new names!

Actually, the Tinies didn't have names until now. Once we figured out the genders of the kittens -- four girls and one boy -- I knew it was time to use some names I've had in mind for a while. From my favorite book of childhood, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: Tatiana the mom is now Marmee, the fluffy gray/black kitten is Meg, the black and white tuxedo kitten is Jo, the dilute calico kitten is Beth, the small gray tabby is Amy and the only boy is the all black kitten and his name is Laurie (short for Lawrence), the boy next door in the story. The names really seem to fit the personalities of the kittens.

By the way, they are starting to drink formula from a dish (to give mom a break) and they are starting to use the litterbox.

  1. What lovely names. That's great that they are developing and being more independant, I bet Marmee is glad of a little break now and again.
