I has a NYT bestselling kitteh...and she needs a name.

YAY!!

We adopted her this morning. Kitteh was a stray who was found by someone at a gas station and taken to the humane society. She was scheduled to be euthanized but a bunny rescue group saved her and brought her to Petsmart, which is where we found her. She is probably around 10 months old. She is a muted torti and very skinny and petite. She is gray, white, and brown.

Our dog is anxious to meet her, but we are not quite ready for that. Taking it slow. :)

This is the best photo we have of her, taken at the store this morning. When she comes out of hiding I'll add more.



So...will you help us name her?

Post your name suggestions here by Tuesday at 5pm. We'll choose a name and let you know what it is!!

And finally, thank you for my kitteh!! You guys all rock.

She's a cutie! We have one similar to her but darker.

I can't think of a name! Argh!

Good luck naming her!

What's your dogs name?

Jessica Kennedy said...

Our torti's name is Alice. Our 4 yr old named her. I have no idea why she picked it.

We found a kitten many years ago under similar circumstances, and we named her Whimsy, from the motto on Lord Peter Wimsey's (in the Dorothy Sayers novels) family crest. It had 3 mice arrant(?) and a cat rampant, and said, "As My Whimsey Takes Me."

It sounds to me like a perfect name for your beautiful new girl!

Congratulations!

Oh wow! So gorgeous! She looks like a Penelope to me! :D Penny!

Jessica Burkhart said...

Kudos to you for adopting a kitty. :)

elisa nader said...

Newt? kinda close to NYT. you must name her in honor of the reason why she was adopted!

Congrats!

Casey said...

How about Tilly? Could be spelled Tillie, too.

She's darling!

literaticat said...

Cuuuute! I love her!

I had a cat that colour when I was young named Mayhem - but she was found in May. So. "Marchem" doesn't have quite the same ring.

Alea said...

Awwwwwww! For some reason she looks like a Samantha to me!

Windy said...

She's super cute! My suggestion?

"Yay"

Because every time you see her will be celebrating again!

Or you can name her "Hooray" and nickname her Yay?

TERI REES WANG said...

Sasha! for sure..
or maybe Malia...
or even Michelle...

These are the names of the coolest cats around these days.

veschwab said...

Too cute kitteh!

I'd name her Smudge :)

tessa said...

Holly (Holland) or Phoebe (Phoenix) or Lucky, cause she is lucky to have a great family!

Ruby (Mouth) said...

My friend has a kitten almost like her and she named her Skittles, plus if she is a bit skiddish...it would be a cute name....

I have no name suggestions but that is a BEAUTIFUL cat.

Though, I have to say just about any Shakespearean character is a good name for a pet.

Tami Klockau said...

Since you were sending cupcakes to your publisher for making the list, like Neil Gaiman was, how about 'Cupcake'? She kinda looks like a cupcake!

She has a very Egyptian look to her. I would go with SHAIT. Now here's an interesting case. Sometimes this deity was a god, and sometimes a goddess. What was odd was that this god/goddess was really several individual cells of one central guardian angel type of Being. Whenever someone was born, a Shai came into existence with them if they were a boy, a Shait if they were a girl. This god or goddess, which ever the case might have been, lived right along side their human, directing their fate and destiny. When the human died, Shai/Shait stood by their soul within the Hall of Judgment and gave a report of the persons good deeds as well as their bad deeds. Although the god/goddess might have argued in favor of their human charge, they had to remain impartial, allowing their true account to stand on its own. Once all the evidence was presented, and the character of the person was considered fully, the decision of whether they should receive reward or punishment in the afterlife was irreversible based on the testimony of the Shai or Shait. So remember that next time your cat looks at you in deep thought. He or she might be taking notes. I got this froma web site...I swear I didn't make it up or write it myself

She is gorgeous! I'm so happy that you adopted her and that the bunny rescue people rescued her.

How about Mobil, or Exxon?
Or Janie?
for some reason Savannah keeps coming to mind too.

It was fun seeing you and hearing you talk (what I could stay for) at the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend.

dreamcatcherr94 said...

What about Calliope (Callie for short), Calypso, Mae, or Annabel.

Anonymous said...

How about "Twitty" or "Tweets" as that is how I happened upon your post.

She's a beauty. Enjoy!

Tiffany Schmidt said...

I LOVE naming things!

ideas:

1) Story (Tory for short)
2) Calliope (named after the muse, Callie for short)
3) Petunia (just cause it's fun)
4) Smidgeon (call her Smidge)

Enjoy her, she's adorable!

Simon Schuster, considering they published the book that became a bestseller.

Simon for short.

I actually like someone's suggestion of Penelope/Penny!

MCRriotgurl said...

I had a kitten who looked a lot like yours. She was pretty crazy and she was always getting into things she shouldn't. So I named her Wrath.
