Sunday Photo Blogging: Presenting Rocky & Starbuck


Well, after long conversations with them, I have finally settled on some names. None of the brother/sister pairs, as marvelous as all those suggestions were, really worked for their personalities. Plus, I began to feel that if I named them that way, each cat would sort of be defined by the other. So I gave them names that have nothing to do with each other. Starbuck is the little girl lying down; so named because she's smart and beautiful and clearly won't take crap from anyone. She may be small now, but I have a feeling someday she'll be running the show. Rocky is that handsome boy sitting next to her: their mother was rescued from the streets of Far Rockaway, out near JFK. He's my little tough guy from the backstreets. Posted by Picasa

Your new babies are CUTIE PATOOTIES! The pictures are all terrific. (Though you are probably already figuring this out, you do know that the cats own us--not the other way around. If we're lucky they let us share their space.)

They are beautiful. I wish I could be there to see them at this age. I'm sure you'll have hours of fun watching them! I'm especially glad that you rescued a couple of street kids...

Great photos, great names!

I'm impressed by their cuteness. I usually steriotype cats as being at least arrogant and at worst devilish creatures. Probably because they're smarter than me. :) Or at least they think they are.

That's why I prefer dogs- the dumber the better! :)

Oh my god, it's finally happened. You have a kitten blog.

I'm usually more of a dog person like LC, but yes, these are CUTE kittens.

And you know what? Something about Starbuck really does remind me of Katee Sackhoff.

I look at these photos several times a day... I'm really going to miss them while I am on vacation this week!
