Ookiname Mimsabel

I'm pleased to introduce you all to our lovely little girl, Ookiname Mimsabel! Her nickname is Mimsy. (Yes, we know what that means.)

This tiniest of girls has the cutest 'mew' and adorable dance I've ever seen a kit have. She's just barely bigger than a tennis shoe and still finds us large things (humans) rather looming and intimidating. For several days, she stayed in the library while she and Nico worked out co-habitation rules, but now she's darting about all three levels of the house. The cats are getting along well enough; no open fighting and respecting each others' space. That's about all I can ask for.

I take it the next cat will be named "Borogove"?

No, because Carroll made shit up all the time. Mimsy, an appropriate shortening of Mimsabel, is also 40's UK slang for vagina. Taking the Ms. Slocombe approach, we now have a lovely sounding name which allows us to say lines like, "Beemer? My Mimsy his hiding again. Help me find her" or "Aww, are you stroking your Mimsy again?" Hilarity ensues.
