The little munchkin is doing fine!

The new family member pictured in the previous post now has a name: Naomi. When she is good, she can use my surname. When she is bad and beautiful, she will get my husband's surname: Campbell. Hey, she's a gorgeous little supermodel with attitude; why not?

Yeah, a gorgeous little supermodel with fleas, worms and a slight upper respiratory tract infection. (Still sounds better to me than the hooman supermodel Naomi!) But no feline leukemia and no FIV! We went to the vet this afternoon. Naomi's now had her first shots, been dewormed, and had flea treatment. She's sleeping the excitement off now. I didn't hear a peep from her the whole drive home.

I stopped at the pet store and got her a cushy new bed, and a little toy to cuddle. She's in quarantine for about four more days until she shakes the infection.

She weighs two pounds and is about six weeks old, truly a little baby. I hope that Naomi has a long and happy life with us, and that Zoë us watching from Cat Heaven (they must have a lot of catnip there!), pleased.

  2. Pnat, Naomi is beautiful. I'm so glad that she had the good sense to find her way to your house for a safe haven. Who knows what would have happened to her out in the cold by herself. I love her new name too!

  5. I still can't believe she turned up AND I heard her from my bed!!! We are surrounded by acres and acres of land, and it's a long way to the nearest house!!

    And last night I heard a pack of coyotes howling their heads off nearby. I'm so glad this little kitten is safe with us.

  6. She is adorable! I love the little markings on her face. I'm so glad she found you. So was the vet able to determine if she was a calico or a tortoisshell (sp) is there a difference?

    OH! Glad she wasn't around for the coyotes!!

  7. Professor Knatolee,

    Naomi is just adorable, and I LOVE her name. I've always liked the name anyway, but if you say it out loud, it kinda sounds like a cat meowing. To me anyway.

    Naomi is a Tortie!!! Calicos are white, black and orange. Tortiseshells are black and orange, like pretty Naomi.
