Name in need:

here is our new kitten. he is a mewmew and his given name is mewmew hamish (like radio's is szinarany apollo and otto's is jo). although his temperament is supposed to be (according to the breed description) independent, easily trainable, not a lapcat...of course none of this is true. he is a licking purr machine. he has been with us for three days and thus far he licked my whole hair (needed a wash) and lasse's face (several times), our hands, feet, radio's paws, whatever living being with skin and fur comes near him gets a wash. furthermore, one only needs to look at him and he purrs. needles to say, we adore him.
otto absolutely is smitten with him, though hamish is taking a little more time with her, he started as a dog's kitten, but is beginning to follow her around.
the problem is that he got given the very name of radio's best friend, hamish pup. so we need to find a new name. any ideas?

I suppose Bluey is too obvious? How about Horace :-)

What's happened to Hamish anyway - no blog updates in aaaaages. Obviously having too much fun!

Di has fallen head over heels with that kitten. And with Otto too. Envy doesn't BEGIN to describe.

Redgirls (predictably) WLTM also.

A kitten washing cleaning machine??
Hoover? Or to add to your German household Miele? Bosch? (we don't like the sound of Siemens though)

Yes. Where IS young Hamish (redgirls like all of our boys to be on call!)

so so so cute. I love him.

choosing names is so much fun. I was thinking of Blue for him but prhaps too obvious as charlie says.
Azul = blue in spanish
I think it is quite cool.

Good luck with your mischief maker

He looks the same as one of the cats that lives with me. The other is chocolate brown. Apparently she used to be a 24/7 lap cat but now I have taken her place as lap dog. Apparently she is called suki. Maybe Samuel?

Hrm odd train of thought - Franz Ferdinand - Ferdi? or Fur-di more appropriate!
