Little Girl Kitty! [Jul. 19th, 2006|12:37 pm]

The other night Don and I were walking into the Rydges Plaza Hotel (location of many excellent restaurants) when we saw this tiny kitty run ahead of us and (to our horror) wander skittishly through the revolving door! Inside the hotel lobby, we scooped her up and realized we had two choices: throw her back into the heavy traffic of Al Diyafah street, or take her home. We thought we'd foster her until we found a home for her, but it seems we've grown attached to her. Cyrus and Tortoise, as well, have welcomed her into our home.


What do you think her name is? I keep asking her, but she just whines, "More fish, please!"

Re: SO cute!

Oooh, that's pretty, and fitting! How did you know about her ferocity? I'll start calling her Kali and see how she takes to it. =)

I MISS YOU, TOO!! *cry*

We don't have any pictures yet of all three cats together, or of Cyrus and little kitten playing (she is always the aggressor, which is refreshing as Cyrus' tyranny has gone on for too long), or of Tortoise gazing fondly at little kitten and thanking us with her eyes.

I have this picture Don took two nights ago of me sleeping on the futon in his office:


And this one of Don at his desk earlier the same night:


I really should post more cat pics, shouldn't I? Considering the universalness (university?) of their appeal.

I have named cats/pets after food, which is probably bad in some psychological way.

I just love the first picture, the rug underneath, two colours, kitty well shes just black, love the contrast. The light falls on hand, but not so much on the kitty. Dunno, simple but effective.

Re: Little Girl Kitty

Yay!! I wondered why you and Mom never commented on here! =)

Some days I prefer the adult version, anyway - they aren't as violent. Oh, she's so cute, though!

When I saw her a name struck me, and usually, names just strike me for certain cats and they get their names.

Cleopatra - Cleo

haha, cute kitty anyways. :)

It fits her - the shape of her face and everything. =) We've been calling her Kali (as per nativeinformant's suggestion, and I think it suits her rather well.

Wow - she looks so like Lail, a black cat I tamed and used to feed when I lived in Bur Dubai. I don't think it is her, but you never know. Lail used to respond to whistling, and she was very affectionate. She would come and push your elbow with her nose and even bite (hard!) to get affection. She had a very slight scar or deformity on her mouth on one side, like it had been torn very slightly and not healed perfectly. She disappeared to have her second litter of kittens just before I moved, so I never got to say goodbye.

Anyway I doubt it's her, but miracles do happen. Black cats are my favourite - and this one looks beautiful!

She's too young, but it's quite possible she is Lail's offspring! She's really affectionate.

You and antivert have become impossible to reach by phone; he doesn't seem to be checking his LJ comments either. Are you in town? It is bklyn_in_dubai's birthday on Tuesday, and it'd be nice to do something.

Oops! I was in Athens (and Dhaka the day before that) and Don's phone doesn't ever work when we're at home. The land line should be working... or maybe one of the cats unplugged it. :/

We're up for doing something tomorrow! Whaddya got in mind?

*Oooh*, beautiful and I want to give her a hug. She reminds me of my ex-cat Angel.

*Waves* ~ I wanted to say hello. I am friends of webwawa and my husband nickdangerous mentioned that I would enjoy your journal, since I love travel, cooking and wine.
