Vintage Advertising -- A Thread Card


It's entirely possible that I've posted this image before (it's from Dover) but it seems appropriate.

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

Our little band of refugees are developing distinct personalities but as yet aren't really named, although the white female seems to answer to Snowball*.  Then again, she answers to anything, or as much as a cat can be said to answer.   The only one that we have positively identified as male is a wee cowering tim'rous beastie and has to be coaxed out from behind Mamma.  I'm so tempted to call him Percy.

The others are perfectly at home, treating the dogs like part of the furniture, zooming all over the room as soon as the crate door opens.  Part of the socialization process is for each of them to be petted at least once a day and I think we're way beyond that.

It's kind of funny watching the Terminator walk around the house with four kittens clinging to his shoulders.

(*I must be channeling the Bobbsey Twins).

Avalanche instead of Snowball. My $0.02, FWIW, which would be less than $0.02, when you account for inflation and taxes.

I often think that Terminators have marshmallow insides if you deep enough. Looks like the kittens succeeded.

Every cat must have at least 3 names. Daily name, bad cat name, goofy cat name and cuddly cat name.
Our Finn was: Finn; Finnigan Minnagan the Bad Monkey, Finnester, Finnmin. So name all you want.
