    My husband and I went looking for a new kitten today. I already have two, a Maine coon boy and a Persian girl. The boy is a great hunter, but he is 13 and is slowing down. We were thinking that we needed another like him that he could train up to be keep the rodent population down outside. I found a Maine mix that I liked and we were going to go get that one, but decided to stop by the local shelter and see what they had. Hubby said it had to be a boy.

    They didn't have too many and this little girl stole my husbands heart. She was a stray that they had picked up and had been at the pound a week. They said they guessed she is about 10 or 12 weeks. So we had to bring her home. She seems to really like people, and wanted to be held or sitting on us all the way home. I have her sequestered in my sewing room and she is quite playful.

    So she needs a name. Any ideas? My husband normally does the naming of pets, but he takes forever. So any ideas will be appreciated. I suggested Pollyanna, and call her Polly, but he said she is not a bird.

    Calico?? Cally for short. She is soooooo pretty! I have four here in the US but I just lost my last cat in the UK last week that a friend had taken for me, so a lil' bit sad... but life goes on. Anyway def for calico is: a plain-woven cotton cloth printed with a figured pattern, usually on one side.

    She is a cutie. Sorry don't have a name recommendation, would need to get to know her a little better. Good luck, sounds like she found a good home.

    What looks like a mess under her right eye is just her coloring. It looks like she got into moms makeup. She needs a bath, but I figured I would give her a day or two to acclimate before that adventure. Since I am allergic, my cats have to learn to tolerate baths. It helps so much with my allergies.

    She looks a little like my Taffy Jane or my Sugar Baby. Taffy was a little sweetie, Sugar was more of an imp.

    I have a dark calico and her name is Marble. Her mother looked like your new baby and her name was RC (Ruth's Cat):)

    Cuddles came to mind when you said she had to be on or next to you the whole ride home, and that she's so lovey. How about a version of Scraps or Scrappy? She looks like she's put together a little bit like a scrap quilt out of all sorts of different pieces. She is just beautiful. Congrats to you and your husband!!

    Awww. She looks like my Sophie. She is nearly 15 with kidney failure. I'm sure she would be honored to have her name carried on by a "cousin". Sophie is a long-hair calico.

    She is adorable. I once had a similar looking cat many many years ago. Her name was Gemma, because she looked like a little gem.
