Here Kitty Kitty

Unfortunately, our 15 year old cat Floyd Bigglesworth is now buried in our backyard, right next to our other cats Xena the Warrior Cat and Yoda Bob.  (Shhh. I think there might be an ordinance against this in my city).

Much crying and sadness ensued.   And life progressed with just one cat.

But the kids and I felt like we really are a two cat kind of family.  Ben did not agree.  After much begging, whining, and pleading, enlightened discussions, we decided to get another cat.   We found the perfect kitty for us - a nearly 5 month old cat from the local Humane Society.

Meet the newest member of the family.  Isn't he adorable?

Hello sweet kitty

Whenever a person or pet joins a family, a name must be selected.  While we give the children absolutely no control over naming a sibling (for reasons that will become very apparent soon), we do let them provide suggestions for pets.

Here is a list of names suggested for our darling new kitty:

Coochie Woochie Bear
Mr. Noodle
Kitty Num Nums
Secret Agent Stinky Pants
Hello Kitty
Mr. Popaulie
Mr. Paulie
Chipmunk Cheeks
Josephine Jellybean (remember, its a boy cat)
Mr. Panda
Justin Beiber
Justin Flea-fur
Kai, Zane, Jay, Cole, Sensei Wu (going for a Ninjago theme)
Santa Claws
Kristin (Shockingly not suggested by me)
Mr. Mama (also not suggested by me)
Mr. Peabody
Cow Pie
Be Dude
Milky Way
Yellow Puppy (again, reminder that this is a cat.  A black and white cat)
Mr. Meowgi
Mr. Meowser
Mr. Magoo
Chuck Norris
Chuck Tucker
Chuck Finley (my personal favorite)
Darth Maul
Darth Vader
Fuzzy Wuzzy
Adrian Peterson (this Packer fan nixes this idea)
Brett Favre (this Packer fan again nixes it.  Why couldn't they have suggested Rogers instead?)
Hello Kitty
Mr. Alligator
Senor el Tigre

After much deliberation, we decided to compromise on the name (like we did with our other cat, Miss Ninja Snugglebug).  The final decision was:

Mr. Batman Popaulie

Welcome to the craziness, little kitty.
