Skye has decided what to call the kittens. We read through the list of names and she picked out the ones she liked. Strangely enough at the beginning she liked the names Riley and Dakota, suggested by Annette in California, but every time she wanted to call them she had to ask," Mummy, what were their names again?"
So we decided to go for something more simple. Carlo was very impressed with Sharon in Maui's offer of Schema and Cretina (stupid and cretin) and said that us girls can call the kittens whatever we want to and he will call them Schema and Cretina. So a couple of nights ago we read through the (very long) list again and toyed with the idea of Turtle and Dove, Crunchie and Flake, Tea and Crumpet and Kitsou and Layla.
But which was which?
The grey kitten is a little ruffian who prefers the floor to the litter tray, purrs when roughed up and always wants to wrestle with her sister.
The white kitten is a little sweetheart, likes being carried around, always uses the litter tray and purrs when stroked very lightly.
So we settled on a pair of names offered by Caitie that seem to describe their characters perfectly:
Introducing Tiger and Lily!
So a huge thank you to everyone who suggested all the wonderful names and Caitie, if you want to email me your address I'll send you a Positano goody-bag. Sharon, you too, seeing as Carlo will be using your names. And Annette in California you too, send me your address for a runner up prize!
