Houston... we may have a kitten

So here he is:


He's probably 99% alley cat, which will be a new thing in the Land of Purebreds that I've been living in.  But he's so damn cute, and Becket can teach him personality.  We're both rather smitten, and we've put "dibs" on him when he's ready.  So assuming he doesn't come down with anything awful in the next few weeks (he's FLV and FiV negative,) he'll come home with us as soon as he's weaned and ready.

We have no idea about a name.  "Henry" is probably a really bad idea.

At least that's what he looks like (to me) in the pic.

Or, in keeping with the vaguely ecclesiastical theme of Becket...Norbert! June 6th, the day you posted you had "discovered" the little bugger, is St. Norbert's day! :-D

Re: "Smee"
Nobby for short.

We have surrogate grandparents for the girls who are Nobby and Barb. Nobby spent the Blitz in a rural English household who couldn't believe that this little German child could possibly be named Norbert, he must just have not been able to pronounce Robert, so they called him Bobby. So it shifted to Nobby after he was able to convince them what his name really was.

He looks like a Baxter or a Percy.

Oh, he is so cute!! Those blue eyes in that grey and silver fur is just gorgeous.

I agree on the "no Henry" thought. Norbert is a good name, but with those pretty blues I think he needs something more melodic, like Seamus or Liam.

I like Henry! It's what I was going to suggest. Names are not destiny, you know. :)

Looks and sounds like a winner to me. Here's hoping everything goes smoothly.

I agree with Vynehorn, Henry is a great name.

He is absolutely beautiful!

He's adorable, no matter what you name him!

Oh so very sweet! Is he likely to be there by the time of the next dabblers guild Saturday? Victoria would be ongoing him like crazy.
Dare I suggest just plain Chaucer? Not of noble birth, but worked his way up in the world .... and brought so much beauty along with him.
