So, yeah. My parents...the dog people...got a kitten. My Aunt’s cat had kittens a while back and well, Mom and Dad decided to get one. Weird, yes. I tried my best to somewhat talk them out of it, but in the end, I think secretly they wanted a pet, but just wasn’t ready for another dog yet.
I have to say, it is pretty cute. He was blinded by the flash, I’m sure. He’s got some really interesting markings. He’s got these white outlines around his eyes. He’s got front mittens, then a mitten and a sock on the back. His chest is white, then the rest is the tiger pattern. He's got some long hair, but not like my friends' long haired cats. I think it's because he's a mix of one of those tiger kitties and a black long haired one. Anyhow, the other kittens were much more skittish, but this one seemed pretty docile. That blue ball in the photo…he loves it. It makes noise and he bats it around like crazy.
Mom got out voted on the name. His name is Loki. Can you guess who put that name on the list? LOL But yeah, out of all the names, even Dad liked that one. Of course, D-chan liked it to. Mom was just all worried that I might be hiding something about the name or something. I kept it very generic. Loki; Norse god; typically associated with the trickster. I kind of left out all the rest about Loki.
Since they've never had a cat before, this shall be an interesting experience.
