Well, it looks like we have an all male litter! I’m leaving the back door open in case I’m wrong–this is very early to declare the genders. I have a couple of girl names standing by just in case. Anyone on my waiting list for a female kitten needs to do a little dance to the Kitten Goddess for Sirocco to have some girls!
Here are the “G” names if they stay boys. Later there will be colored collars to identify with each name, but for now we only have colors for the first two:
#1 Gecko (red)
#2 Goliath (blue)
#3 Geronimo (unmarked Classic Tabby)
#4 Gobi Bear (the McTabby)
I’m seeing the need for a small addendum here! WHERE DID THE NAME “Gobi Bear” come from? I REALLY wanted to use the Gobi desert in my desert names theme: i.e. Sahara, Kalahari …. When I brought Sequoia home, I started my research. I went through every desert on the planet, and every desert plant, flower, bug, and animal. That’s when I discovered the Gobi Bears, which are indigenous to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia and are endangered. I decided her name would be Gobi Bear. It was good, but not perfect. THEN I received an email through my sister’s website (as you may know, she writes mystery novels based in our national parks). I built and maintain her website as well as receive all of her fan emails. In this email, someone asked when she was going to base a mystery in Sequoia National Park. The name popped out at me like a neon sign. IT was the right name for my new kitten! Once again I spiraled off in another direction. SO, I determined that there would be a Gobi Bear in the “G” litter whether male or female.
That’s the story, and I’m sticking to it!
