Because you love a kitten pic....

This is our new boy, currently in foster with a rescue centre. We’re getting him and his brother at the weekend (brother is a short haired tabby). Brother is the runt of the litter so we’re going to call him Wilbur in honour of the runt pig in Charlotte’s Web, and because the kids love Winnie the Witch and Wilbur is her cat. But this chap needs a name...I quite like the idea of naming them both after witches’ cats in children’s books and calling this one Mog (have checked in the dc’s stories and Mog as in Meg is a boy!). What do you think?

Oh my, what a little dream of a kitten grin

Look at those floofy ears and ruffle.

Oh I thought you were calling this one Winnie to go along with Wilbur. I misread, but I actually think Winnie and Wilbur sound cute together. (Winnie short for Winston, although I don’t think cats mind gendered names anyway)

Gobbolino is the best witches cat- Gobbers for short? grin

How cute is he? I really need a kitten in my life as my silly cat spends most of his time in a bush at the bottom of the garden hmm

He is so cute!

I agree with Winnie short for Winston! Gorgeous kitten, any photos of his brother?

toomuchhappyland Wed 05-Sep-18 20:43:17

Ski37 not yet,he was running around too much to get a clear one! Will post some when we bring them home. I’m liking Crookshanks. No one likes Mog then...? grin

What was the verdict?!

toomuchhappyland Tue 18-Sep-18 22:29:32

So they’re home! The kids were adamant that the name is Mog, so here’s Mog and Wilbur. They’re settling in nicely and have both been on my lap doing mega-purrs all night after charging around like mad beasts. Haven’t introduced them to our resident cat yet, taking that one slowly!

They are a little bit too cute aren't they?

MrsCatE Wed 19-Sep-18 00:07:07

Lovely beasts! I wish they were mine..
More pics please!

Want2beme Wed 19-Sep-18 10:13:27

Gorgeous! How old is your other mog?

toomuchhappyland Wed 19-Sep-18 20:51:15

They like the cat tree! Resident cat is 2. She’s been sniffing around the door of the room they’re in so we’re going to try a mesh baby gate they can see each other through next.
