    My 17-year-old Gracie says to congratulate both you and your new kitty. When my pets did not keep the names they were given at the shelter, the right name just popped out of thin air eventually. My dearly departed long-haired black and white 18 pounder was "Adam" at the shelter, but Nicodemus Popadopolas ("Nico") to me.

    I didn't know that gingers are usually males. My son has a pair of brothers. Both gorgeous. I've only had females, calicos and blacks.

    Good for you! There is nothing like having a kitty help out and inspect everything you do. Glad he has a good home.

    Enjoy your new baby! We are currently without right now (we just lost our oldest and last cat in Dec) and I miss having one. However, we would like to do some traveling in the near future and it will be easier without having to deal with pet sitters.

    My husband once named a mischievous kitten "Hermes" after the Olympian God.

    Thank you for all the advice. It is needed badly. It hs been about 20 yrs since I have had a cat. Oh ys, he is neutered. Little kitty cat is settling in fast. He has found his, at least for now, favorite place to sleep during the day, he sleeps on the bed at night with my toy poodle and myself. My poodle is two years old and has been trying to make friends. The kitty cat is not afraid of Heidi as he has been raised with a dog. This morning they were chasing each other around. So far he has helped me cut fabric, pin pieces together, tho I had to call a hault to that, he was trying to play with the pins, and he supervised as I sew. All is quiet right now.

    I had 2 pure Tonkinese cats, and the female died at 3 years old. Decided right then if I ever replaced her it would be a rescue, well don't you know, my daughters boyfriend found a tiny kitten in a CAR ENGINE. She apparently climbed there for warmth and when he heard the mewing, waited til the owner showed up to rescue her. He took her to vet and then asked my DD if I'd like her. She is a grey tabby, named Dove Bar ( for chocolate) and she is a love. A great decision! Enjoy your new friend, their antics and love will make you smile every day. Congrats!

    Animals are wonderful to have around - I was gone for 1 1/2 weeks, my husband said the cats kept him company in the evenings. I'm home now and they are all in their various chosen spots napping - they knew my husband had me for company. All of ours are rescues from outside - Enjoy your new baby - My cats love to pick the pins out of the pin cushions, sleep on any pile of fabric and steal anything and everything from my sewing room.

    My 8 year old Yorkie is named Booger and it's his name that is one my personalized license plate. When you read the plate, its says Texas
    Booger
    I raised him from a puppy, but have two rescues, a Pomeranian named Gucci (that was the name on her tag when she came from pound, just hours away from being put down) and another Giant Hulk of a Yorkie we name WookieDoodle.

    I know your Booger is as great a joy as mine. froggyintexas

    Congrats our your new friend!! Cats are wonderful creatures, just be patient during the kitten stage, doesn't last forever. Too sweet, sounds like maybe his name should be "Butter" or "Scotch" for butterscotch. Enjoy and love, love, love him

    He will help you, for sure, but maybe not so much with the quilting. Keep in mind that for cats, one of the most dangerous things in your sewing room is thread if they eat it, which many want to do for some reason. One of mine is so interested in thread that she actually figured out how to find it on a machine that was folded inside a cabinet. Luckily, I caught her before she ate any of it, but she had pulled it all around the room as if she was trying to make herself a spider web.

    Wishing him a long happy life with you! Let us know when he tells you what his name should be.
