So, I found this little freebie within my files, it's yours if you'd like.

Baby Kitties

Hello, I'm a cute little girl and I need a name. Any suggestions? Read on to hear more about me and my brother.

UPDATE: We decieded on a name for her, it's Mali. It's the Siamese name for Jasmine.

The other day the kids and I were out running errands. We were near the Animal Shelter so we stopped in on a whim. We had been there a number of times before, actually that is where we got our cat Meiko 4 years ago. But this time, we spotted 2 little loves that caught my attention. They were 2 siamese kittens. One boy & one Girl. We had to wait 3 days until they were available for adoption. I put it in the back of my mind, but the kids remembered and I was suprised that my husband didn't seem to mind. So, on Friday we went down to see them. It was apparent they belonged together, and how could I chose which one had to stay at the city shelter? Each of the kids wanted one of their own, so we adopted them both.

When I was a child, I actually had 2 Siamese kittens. One boy & one girl that came to me on their own. One a neighbor brought home and was not allowed to have. She was Lily, and was fluffier and had lighter markings.Mistakenly my Mom found a little boy wandering in the rain 2 days later. She thought he was my Lily and brought him home. I named him Lucky. He was darker and thinner.

Here is a photo of Lucky taken later when he was older. It's not the best photo granted it was taken in the 80's with a toy film camera. lol

I don't remember what happened to Lily, but I do remember that Lucky had been piosioned and it broke my heart when he died in my arms.

I am now starting to sense that these little kittens might be the reincarnated past friends of my childhood. I jokingly said this earlier today. However, after reviewing photos that my daughter took, my heart stopped when I saw one of the new little girl curled up in my old childhood blanket, the same one that Lily slept in.

Here's an old photo I just found of Lily She's much older than a kitten here. In the back is the Blue & white pillow that goes to my old blanket that our new girl was snuggled in.

So here are the new kitties.

Our son named the boy Ciaro and we are still deciding on a name for the girl.

Any suggestions? We'd like an Egyptian female name.

Aren't their markings similar? I know of course they are because they are Siamese, but even the females have the white noses and tan around the eyes. LOL, I just think that the whole "flash back" to my child hood has been fun to think of. I hope that our kiddos will have just as much fun with these 2 babies as I did.

Meiko, our 4 year old cat, isn't happy at all about the addition. He won't even come inside. I spend extra time with him and really the kids are the ones who have played with the kittens. But, he's not happy and isn't shy in letting us know. I hope he'll get over it. He has in the past and is now best friends with Autumn, the little stray who comes around.

Okay, well, I'm done rambling... If you've read this far, thanks. I'll let you know when we select a name.
