You Can't Have Just Five

Subtitles/Alternate Titles:

Five is Not Enough
The Mommy Lost More Marbles
We're Blaming it on Noir and Brian
We've Got Introoders - and They're Permanent!
New Kids on the Block
And Then There Were....Seven?!


The Kitty Krew proudly introduces the newest members (yes, plural) of our not-so-little family!

This is Gypsy, the kitty-formerly-known-as-Tamara; a 1-year old dilute calico female:



And this is a still-to-be-renamed kitty currently-named Thor; a 6-month old white/tabby mix male:



We're blaming Noir because he and his beanmom, Tommy, posted last week about a cute little Siamese girlcat that needed a new home. The Mommy called about her but the end result was that she's being adopted this weekend by someone who called earlier than The Mommy. The Mommy was happy she was getting a home and not overly disappointed to miss out, after all, she had 5 of us already, right?

And then late Wednesday, Brian posted about his new sister that they are adopting. And so it made The Mommy start thinking some more (always a dangerous thing!), and she got on the website of a local no-kill shelter and was looking at their kitties. Uh oh! She went up there after work on Thursday, and came home with Gypsy and "Thor". Like we needed two more rugrats around here.... Sheesh.

She needs some help with re-naming "Thor" though. We've got a naming 'thing', with all our names ending in 'y' or 'ie'; for the eldest of us (Bugsy, Sassy and Callie), it wasn't intentional. For Roxy, it kind of was; for Pixie it definitely was. Some possibilities for "Thor" include Ripley, Ozzy or Ziggy. The first syllable of the name should also be good for using as a nickname (Bugs, Sass, Cal, Rox, Pix, Gyp/Gyps (okay, that one doesn't work quite so well)). Anyone have any other suggestions?

We'll have more photos of the two new kids on the block in the coming days. Please join us in welcoming them!



PS - Happy Halloween to everyone! The Mommy never got around to doing any costumes for any of us for any of the costume contests (sheesh!), so we really didn't have much to contribute for the mystique of the day today anyway...we trust you'll forgive us for instead intro'ing our new family members to everyone.

Now if ever there was a wonderful Halloween treat -- this is it!
Two New Krew!
Awesome...

Zoey says Ziggy is a good name, wonder why?
She also likes Zozzie (cause that's what she gets called sometimes)... and then for nicknames she is called Z-Gurl... which could be Z-Boy and last,
but not least: ZZ.
When she not such a good gurl, one might hear this:
"ZeeeeZeeeeZeeeee... NO!"

The Monkeys said...

Welcome to the two new Krew members!!! Such cuties.

Our Mom is partial to Ozzy (one of her cats when she was a teenager was named Ozzy) and she also had a Bucky, Sigmund (Siggy), Muddy, Beastie....the list goes on...

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Holy Smokes!!! More cousins?!? SWEET! You could call him Valkyrie.(?) We hope all of you have a furry fun Happy Halloween!!!

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Well---so The Mommy doesn't blame me and Tommy TOO much?? :) Tommy just has one question for The Mommy, "How big is that hole now?" :)

I like the 2 new roomates: Thor could be Ozzy--I like that one. He could be the Wizard of your Oz!

Congratulations !!

Gorgeous Kitty Cats ... so nice of you to give them a forever home.

(I almost took home a kitty last week but she didn't like me. A bit feral she is and wouldn't fit in with my Purr Gang)

Names ~ My grey cat is named Ashton .. he has stripes and spots. His nickname is Ashie or Tony ... as in Ashtonie ..


Harvie, Ralphie, Charlie after Charlie Brown and his Pumpkin Show that is on each year ...

We cannot wait to get to know Gypsy and 'Thor' a little better.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Happy Halloween...how about Thory, as in "Thory yoor mom added me"...no, not really. Hey, we never thawt about it, but our names is like dat too!

Eric and Flynn said...

Welcome to your new brother and sister. We can't think of any original names, but we like Ozzy.

Your Daily Cute said...

Yay! Congrats on the new little ones! I love hearing when babies get furever homes. :)

Maybe you can think of a name that kind of goes with Gypsy since they were gotcha'd together?

Madi and Mom said...

You guys are now the Kitty Krew plus two...what beauties they are too. We hope you all get along well. The new ones don't yet know HOW VERY LUCKY THEY ARE.
Thor is a cute name.
Dilute Calico is new to us.
Madi and Mom

Cats in trees said...

Aww. They both are so cute. We understand why the mommy lost those marbles.
And about the name: we tried to come up with one, but decided he looks like he is a Ziggy, "The Zig".

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Well HELLOOOOOOOO BOOTIFUL Gypsy!!!

Karen Jo said...

Congratulations on your new additions. I like the name Ziggy. Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday, Pixie!

Huffle Mawson said...

Welcome to the family, kitties! I think Ziggy is a cool name.

CCL Wendy said...

Congratulations on the adoption of your two new furbabies! Wow! What lovely additions to your Krew! Gypsy is so, so pretty. I love the colours in her coat. And she has the sweetest little face -- looks like she's smiling already!

Thor looks like a little sweetheart, as well. I was thinking "Bentley" was kind of a cute name. I'm sure you'll get dozens and dozens of suggestions.

I'm looking forward to hearing about them on an ongoing basis along with the other Kitty Krew members.

You certainly have a big heart! Bless you!

CCL Wendy said...

Oh yes, we almost forgot in all the excitement -- Happy Birthday sweet Pixie! It looks like you got two presents for your birthday this year!

Gracie said...

What better than getting a new sibling? Getting two siblings? The more the merrier. Congrats on the newest members to your alread wonderful family.

Furkidsmom said...

Happy Purrthday Pixie!!

Milo and Alfie said...

How wonderful ~ new kitties. We like the idea of the name Ozzy for Thor ~ then he could be Oz for short.

The new kitties look adorable.

♥Da fambly kitties♥ said...

Our momma would certainly ♥ to have more kitties but Miss Camille Suzanne would smack the snot out of da new babies. Heck, she smacks the snot outa' the dogs even when they looks at her the wrong way...such a prima donna. She thinks her kitty litters doesn't smell, ya know what we mean?

William said...

Oh gosh, five *isn't* enough???? I have to tell Mom to go get that baby brother for us!

William said...

Oh, and I meant to say how pretty Gypsy is---for some reason, though, Thor won't come up.

SuziQCat said...

Cute additions! Thor looks like a kitten we fostered named Walker.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Uh oh, or congratulations? My house and your house are so much alike! We are glad your new sibs have a great new home.
