In case y’all missed it on Saturday, a note from the Challenger’s House shelter manager:

Thanks to all of you who participated in the kitten pool. The money you donated will cover leukemia/aids testing, spaying or neutering, & rabies shots for all 6 kittens plus a bit left over. I am always amazed at the response Robyn gets from her readers and I appreciate that most of you probably have local organizations that you support. We are lucky to have so many generous animal lovers who jump in to support the cause. And I love the name Fergus Simon. Thanks, Lori, and congratulations on being the name-the-baby winner.

Sincerely, Susan B., Shelter Manager

First, your McMao video, entitled McMaos Belly up to the Milk Bar (bet you can’t guess what that’s about, huh?)

And now? The names!

2011-04-11-DarkNose
The kitten formerly known as Dark Nose is now Macushla. (This is the Americanized spelling of Mo chuisle, a phrase that literally translates as “my pulse”, but is used like “my darling.” Someone mentioned it in the comments to Friday’s entry (I think it was Friday), and I immediately loved it.)

2011-04-11-DkSplotchRtNostril
The kitten formerly known as Dark Splotch Right Nostril is now Declan.

2011-04-11-DkNosePinkSplotch
The kitten formerly known as Dark Nose with Pink Splotch is now Cillian (pronounced “Killian.”)

2011-04-11-PinkNose
The kitten formerly known as Pink Nose is now Finnegan.

Of course you know Fergus Simon.

2011-04-11-WhiteFace
And the kitten formerly known as Little White Face (who is looking at Fred as if she’s saying “How DARE you? Unhand me, Sir!”) is now Ciara (which is pronounced “Keer-ah”). I’ve loved that name since I read it in an Andrew Greeley novel years and years ago.

Check out Fergus Simon there, rolling around on his back.

Look at little princess White Face there in the middle all “What do YOU want, lady? Go ‘way!”

Little stripey-pants there on the lower right escaped the cat bed, but immediately turned around and went back.

“What IS this place?!”

Elwood, ever alert for the sound of the cat food can opening in the foster room.
