Help me name my kittens!
26

ChatterMonkey · 25/06/2022 18:55

Getting two kittens tomorrow, a boy and a girl siblings, and need help naming them!!

Meeting them tomorrow, and if it all goes well, we are taking them home with us! They are both black and white, mostly black. Girl has a bit more white on her than her brother. Any ideas for names...?

Im thinking pistachio for the girl (nickname tasha) and peanut for the boy..

Only hesitancy i have is the shelter have a different cat on their website called pistachio that i stole the name from, will they think im weird naming my kitten the same name as one of their other cats...?

Im so exited, any other tips for kittens much appreciated!

Oh that white chin!
Of course it’s the girl about to bop the camera!! Are they neutered and chipped already OP?
The rescue wouldn’t think that was weird at all.

Cute kitchens

Bailey and Guinness were my first thoughts for names, don’t know why!

I'd name them Nina and Naruto
Alternatively how about Luna or Velvet for the girl and Theo or Malachi for the boy

When we collected our pair the rescue place had named them Gin and Tonic. I changed it on the basis that one wouldn’t come in at night and I would be wandering the streets shouting that I had lost my gin. Had anyone seen my gin. 🤣

Get them home and take a few days to decide. We have 3 kittens that we rescued this year. The 1st one home to us became Mango and the other two who came as a pair are Sheldon and Soup. And yes, I feel a fool calling them in from the garden and i can almost hear my neighbours laughing at me!

I think Guinness and Beamish are a good choice. Go together but work well in their own too. Follow the B&W theme too.

Welcome to a lifetime of servitude and contempt 😂

I meant to rename my last two because I thought their Battersea names (Karl and Lenny) were rubbish. Never got round to it 😹.
I do like human names for cats though.

Apparently if tomorrow goes well we can take them home with us there and then, which is a lot sooner than i expected, but good!

But means we have to panic shop all the kitten things tomorrow morning!

So mumsnet... what do we need to spoil some little kittens??

You don’t need to buy more stuff. Everything you own is now theirs. Enjoy 😉

Cardboard boxes. Get thee to a supermarket for the really sturdy fruit and veg ones and build a little fort.

You need a safe room for their first night. Same food and litter as they are used to.
And barricade EVERY possible small space. Under the dishwasher. Up the chimney. 😆

The kick board beneath the tumble drier isnt attached, thats going to need attached or kittens are going to get behind the kitchen cupboards...!

Will update tomorrow once I have the cuties at home! The shelter said that we can take them home if the meeting goes well, but i dont know how meeting kittens can go badly...!
