Henry named her


Twinkle, specifically.

It fits, plus who is going to look at their five year old and say "no way, Dude, you can't name her Twinkle." I mean, seriously.

Roo is completely smitten, though clearly a little let down that Daisy didn't make the cut. So we decided on:

Twinkle Daisy Lulu as a full name. Her formal name, for taxes and drivers' license and to engrave in gold letters on her little cat Bible that she gets for cat confirmation.

Or something.

My boy is a little sad he can't pick up miss Twink. She got spayed yesterday and I no trustie. I'm too afraid that his wild and woolly ways will mean a cat shriek and cat trip to the vet if he forgets to support her belly. So for now he's on scratch only restriction. He played with her for a long time this afternoon, though.

Last night I slept the sleep of the blissfully be-catted; she tucked herself into my neck crevice and purred like a raspy two-stroke engine. Just what I needed in my sleepless little life. She's either set at 10 or 2 right now, all go or all sleep. I love it.

So happy.


  1. She slept in your neck! Amazing! I wish my cats would snuggle with me...but they like to sleep in their own beds. That is purrfect and I am glad you are so happy.

  2. Awww you look like such a happy new mommy in your last pic! I wish mine would've stayed a little kitten.. still love him to death, but he has a nickname now that he is 11: "little bastard." He can be such a pain in the ass!

    Anyway, SO CUTE!

  3. Aw, she's so cute! And you do look incredibly happy. I keep asking the BF for another cat, but he says no. I might just come home with one....that way he can't say no!

  4. OMG. I think we have the same couch.

  5. She is adorable. Pets make life a little more bearable. They are just so darn cute how could you not be happy when you come home to them? :)
