Charity begins at home

As you all know recently we attended a charity ball. I did promise some pics so Ladies please try to contain yourselves ;)



We did have a great time and consumed a fair ammount of the free alcohol.



All things considered we behaved quite well.

In true charitable style we have acquired someone elses cast offs. Rosie, a friend of Saaras from her old workplace, found two abandoned kittens that we think are around 4 weeks old. Rosie lives on her own and travels extensively for her job so could not look after them......hey guess who got suckered into taking them on.



They are beautiful litle things, though not quite housetrained and very very insecure.




I didnt want any more cats for a while. Im still hurting at giving up my last two when we emmigrated. But what can you do? they need a home and we have one. It is beyond me how anyone could abandon these cuties to whatever fate would have befallen them. Anyway as yet they are unnamed so answers on a postcard please or failing that just post them in the comments area

They look like little gems to me. How about Ruby and Sapphire?

I chose them because they are the words easiest to say with a broad Ozzie accent... ;)

the things i've noticed having as many cats as i've had, by the way, is that they're generally better about not going on the floor than dogs - have litterbox or even outside - will do their business there instead ... they're pretty clean animals overall :)

Nugget and Puffy, for example, taught themselves to use the litterbox without much prodding from me, which is fine ... now Nugget wants to go out doors all the time which is cool too (no litterbox to clean) but 1 and 4:30 a.m. awakenings to go outside and piss exist now ... and he knows that when he climbs up on the bed, gets in my face, and screams bloody murder, it will wake me up ...

what're you feeding them? and i demand a location to which i may mail some complimentary introductory kitty toys for them ...

in fact, email me ... i will send the moppets some toys ... (rebekahmartinez@yahoo.com)

Rebekah's scaring me... :s

I think they should be Pink and Floyd. Although my Dad's suggestion is pretty good.

who's scaring who? why? what?

dont make me pout so early in the morning ... geez ...

Wudas: I like the idea but one of the cats is male and will need a butcher name i think. But thanks for the suggestion and keep them coming please.

Gone: Very true about the names and the Oz accent. If we go on that criterior though surely strewth & bugger would be just as acceptable :)

Rebekah: I love some of your suggestions. Saara has decided to call the female kitts Tilly (short for Matilda) so i just need a males name now. I wont send you an adfdress purely because posting toys to Oz will bankrupt you and you have a wedding to spend money on. But i thank you for the thought you are a real sweetie.

Bubaker: I like Pink & Floyd. I wanted to call them Jimi & Janis but saara didnt like it. She has named the lil black & white one Tilly so im seriously contemplating calling the male 'The Hun' .

i love how you pretend that you dont want me to send toys because it would cost me money instead of "i dont want you stalking me"

good call dude

good call

YOu and Saara look great, I am glad to hear you had such a good time, and free brooze and new kittens, does your luck ever run out???

I can't believe with your love humour that no one has suggested Curly and Moe.

 
At 8:52 PM, Blogger Keeefer said...

LMAO Reb, if i was ever gonna have a stalker id choose you. Seriously though if you want to send kitty gifts let me know and i will email you my addy.

Kelly: Curly & Moe!!!!! what a great idea, sadly Saara has already named the girl Tilly so i only have one left to name. At the moment hes called Tigger because he hasnt learnt to run ptroperly and just bounces everywhere

You and Saara look great. Free booze is always a plus at any event.

The kittens are very cute. Which one is male and which one is female? If the male one is the orange one, I think tiger is a very good name for him. Tilly's not a bad name either for the female.

 
At 12:19 PM, Blogger BeckyBumbleFuck said...

Aaawwww, cuties.

Oh, and you and Saara, too. ;)

 
At 1:04 PM, Blogger Keeefer said...

Shanon: Free booze is my all time favourite give away. Its much better than a sample bottle of shampoo and tastes much better. The male is the lil ginger one. He is either going to be Tigger or Tom.

BBFK: hehehehe ty. Does Noel want kittens? we could post them over they would all live happily i the fishbowl honest ;)

that might be quite possibly the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me keef

 
At 12:56 AM, Blogger Fallen_Angel_Peri said...

Very adorable.
I recently become parent to a tiny Boston Terrior and have been struggling with names. Seems so far suggestions have been "Shithead" "Damnit" and odly "Kitty Kitty", because whenever I call the cat..here kitty kitty the puppy always comes running.
Hey K.. can you send me an e-mail?

 
At 2:00 PM, Blogger BeckyBumbleFuck said...

Duh. Noel *definitely* wants kittens. Me, on the otherhand...er...I go for more exotic things. ;)

 
At 7:40 PM, Blogger wilsajedi said...

nice kittens, I think my great aunt was named Tilly.If you want a butch name why not Butch? you can't get much butcher than Butch.

Name for the orange one

Hmmm. Orange, color of fire. Flame?

No. Can't have Keefer shouting that out into the night. No telling who or what will show up.

Pumpkin?

Too effeminate.

Orange, fruit, vegetable, carrot, Halloween, Jack-o-lantern, what minerals are orange? Should'a taken Biology. Or is that some other science that studies rocks. RUSTY!

That came from the Junkyard side of my brain.

Ahhh! I got it!!!

- Flash -

Fastest Superhero Cat on Earth!

Call that out at night and even street hardened muggers are sure to go the other direction.

What do I win besides eternal thanks?

 
At 4:04 AM, Blogger Lever said...

Ah, very dapper. And the Mrs. looks radiant too :)

OK, cat names...

How about Monty & Rommel ? Was gonna call mine Monty & Rommel but they're boy & girl :S

 
At 2:01 PM, Blogger Gone Away said...

For my money, Strewth and Bugger are the winners by a country mile. Your only problem then is sorting out which is female and which male. The whole thing could be shortcircuited by calling them Sheila and Bruce.

.oO(Jeez, what's the world coming to when people name a cat Tilly...?)

My word verification is "veinzr". Just recently I saw a commenter claim that he'd actually had a real word for this verification nonsense. Which made me think about the unsavoury words that might be accidentally produced by the machine or whatever it is that delivers these things. And then I got to wondering whether the stupid thing has a block against obscenities built into it.

The things we do for blogging...

geez-o

 
At 5:32 PM, Blogger Lever said...

LOL, Tilly is just... Silly :S

LOL @ Reb :)

Oi, Keeefer, I changed my T-shirt...

 
At 8:36 PM, Blogger rebekah said...

:S it's about damn time, lever, you change your shirt like once every fourth months. get's a little musty in there does it not?

 
At 11:40 AM, Blogger Lever said...

LOL, absolutely ;)

So do ya reckon Keeefer had a nice Christmas and a good New Year?

 
At 10:11 AM, Blogger rebekah said...

you know what you elusive little monkey - i haven't seen you around in
the longest time and i find myself wondering occasionally - what IS
keef up to?

and of course i have to answer myself because youre not around to
answer me so i guess my point is, i've made up all kinds of adventures for
you in your absence. they were cool, too.

so now, dammit, what's up?

 
At 3:25 AM, Blogger Lever said...

Yeah, bro, what's happening? If we don't catch up with you in the next 3 days then I hope you have a very Merry Christmas :D
