Los Gatos Hermanos (named after characters from the TV show Better Call Saul) came to us on August 1, 2022. Mama Kim Wexler and her 5 kittens were at our local high-intake animal control and desperately needed to get out of there. The kittens were 5 days old when we got them. Just a few days later, a tiny kitten was found in a hay bale (left there by his mother), and needed a place to go so we introduced him to Kim. She immediately accepted him – we named him Mike – as her own. He’s a bit small for his age, so I am supplementing him with bottle feeding.
The litter name – Los Gatos Hermanos – is translated, strictly speaking, as “the cat brothers.” It’s a takeoff of the name of Gus Fring’s restaurant in Better Call Saul, Los Pollos Hermanos.
Francesca – girl – all black, with an occasional sprinkle of white fur. Pink collar.
Gustavo – boy – all black, with a very occasional sprinkle of white fur. Yellow collar.
Ignacia (Nacho) – girl – black and white tuxie with a white belly and white feet. (Note: Nacho was initially misgendered as a boy; when we realized she’s a girl, we changed her formal name to Ignacia (from Ignacio), but kept her nickname as Nacho.)
Lalo – boy – Siamese mix (currently looks to be mostly white, but his points are coming in.)
Mike – boy – all black with a tiny white locket at his throat and a splash of white on his lower belly.
Saul – boy – black and white tuxie with a stripe up his nose.
