original.gif   Want to help me name my rescues ?

They are going really well, Mum is much better and I can pat her and pick her up, but she will jump at sudden moves - but that's a massive improvement on the hissy-spitty-scratchy kitty I had to catch in a trap 3 weeks ago.  I've called her Ramblin' Rosie.

The kittens, in my biased opinion, are the cutest rescues on the planet.  I have to come up with some really great names to help catch people's attention so they get adopted -  but I'm quite crap at naming kittens with 'normal' cat names, so help !!!

Photos to inspire you :

Smudged Tortie

The cutest Calico Tortie girl

Ginger rescue

The whole rescue family

Rosie herself

Inspire me please - I was thinking botanical names as a reminder of where they were found ?  What do you think ?

No ideas on names but gee now I want another kitten, sooo cute!

I like Thunder for the smudge for some reason :-)

Good luck with the rehoming.

That first smudged Tortie, oh my goodness the face.

They're all super cute. Dangerous thread. Tounge1.gif

I guessed the torties were girls and the orange was a boy, on the averages, if that's wrong I'll come back with new names:


Ramblin' Rosie and
Chocolate Cosmos or Black Peppermint - Chocolate Cosmos is a pretty dark-but-not-black flower I like.
Posy-patch (...she's patched, I'm lame...)
Clem(entine, if girl)
