Meet Gigi

After all the polls and everything, I have decided on a name.  And it is not one that was in the poll- sorry.  This is Gigi.  I like that it is silly and fun, and something I would never name my child.  And in response to the many aghast responses that I have received from people when they find out that I have had a kitten for almost 3 weeks without giving her a name, I say, I haven't done too bad considering that people get 9 months to come up with a name and I took about 2 1/2 weeks.  Thank you.  And in case you want to see more pictures of her, here you go.  I know, it's not like I have a kid, but she is the one I communicate most with during my time at home.  If that isn't a sad commentary on my life, I don't know what is.

She likes to sit in my lap, but doesn't like it when I do anything else but pay attention to her.

Her new favorite hiding place, in a box of Christmas lights my dad gave me.
He would be so proud.

I like this one because it looks like her head is half missing.

This is what happens when I get home from work and someone has poop all over her feet.

In case you are wondering, that is her nubbin of a leg.

This is the face she gives me when she wants to eat more kitty treats.

And tomorrow I plan to post about my trip to temple square last night.  Wait for it.

She is so cute! I can't ever get good pictures of my cat. She gets too distracted. I need to take lessons from you.

She's purrrty! :) No worries posting pics of your furkid... I have been known to do it before - and I have real human kids too!

She is adorable! And I don't think that it took to long to name her. Sometimes it takes a little bit, and it's okay :) wish that I could get a cat, they are so much fun!

She's so cute! Makes me want a cat...too bad Chris is allergic. Oh, and don't worry about taking so long to name her. Chris and I had 9 months and we still couldn't pick a name. The nurses at the hospital wouldn't let us go home until we had named Kate!

Hey Andrea

I found your blog through Aleisha's. Your Kitty is so adorable!

I think it is perfectly fine to take 3 weeks to name your kitty. My sister got one and called her "kitty" for months before she settled on "Katie"
