Kitten Names!


I think you all know about the stray cat who had kittens in my horse hay.  I'm down to mamma cat and two kittens that I think I'm going to keep.  I've mentioned before that I named the mom Emerald (Emi for short) because of her gorgeous green eyes.  Now I think I have names for the two kittens I'm keeping (like I need five cats ugh!).

Emi stretching.  She's so small for a full grown cat.

So introducing....

Smokey, the female that looks like Gray Kitty.
Smokey is named after my mom's first cat.

and...

Pharaoh, the only male kitten in the litter.
This is my new favorite photo!!!! I LOVE it!

I chose his name because I wanted something Eqyptian, he has huge ears like a Pharaoh hound and also because I love American Pharoah, the racehorse who won the Triple Crown.  :D

I was so sick of not having good pictures of the kittens (and goats) because I can't get close enough with my cell phone without disturbing their play (or scaring them off in the case of the goats), so I borrowed mom's camera.  I have missed having a camera SO MUCH!!!!!  Seriously I would sell a kidney for a camera right now!  Check out all of the pictures I got!

When I walked outside this is how I found them... they need to be weaned lol.

 Pharaoh watched me, but isn't afraid. 

 Smokey is much more skittish and starts to slink away.

She eventually gets used to me again (everyday...) and relaxes, but she's definitely shyer.

 Are they not just too adorable???


I love these next three.

 Stretch....

 .... streeeeeetttttcccccchhhh.......

 Pounce!

Want to know why he's attacking the rake?

 Because Smokey is behind it lounging in a shovel lol. 

 They are both wary sometimes.

 Stopping for a quick scratch break.

 He thought playing with the cactus was a good idea... he figured out his mistake quickly.

 The sunlight in this shot show how unique his markings are.  He's so gorgeous!

 I started talking and he turned around to meow at me... melts...

 Cute little Buddha belly hehe. 

 He is so cute I can't stand it! 

 I love the back lighting in these.

Then he spotted Jackal LOL!!  They don't like the dogs.

Aren't they adorable?  I'm so glad I finally have pictures because they grow out of this stage so quickly and I want to remember it.  I hope you enjoyed them!  Also I added them to the sidebar and the Other Pets page at the top of the blog.  :)

  1. My comment got eaten. Anyway, brings back fond memories of finding (actually the barn dog finding) a sweet cat in our barn five years ago. Next day, she moved her five kittens in. With dogs approval. Still have Momma and kept a daughter. Love my girls.
