Josephine "Bunny" Ashby
The kitten-naming process is not an easy one. With each litter, I spend hours looking for names in old census reports, year books, movie credits, album liner notes and phone books. I read signs and employee name tags. I'll search wikipedia for topics like "romantic composers" or "depression era bankers". I take it quite seriously, and always hope to find the perfect name for every kitten.
So,, after days and days of thinking about the new kitties,, I decided that "Josephine" was a good fit for the only little girl in the litter. Then Craig, who rarely puts his two cents in on the subject informs me her name is "Bunny".
I laughed at him at first, and then it sunk in, and I realized it made complete sense. She is a Bunny.
The next morning, I called Sue and told her about Craig's suggestion. She had a similar initial reaction, but after it sunk in, it made complete sense to her too.
So meet Josephine "Bunny" Ashby. She'll answer to either names, but at this stage in her life, prefers to be called "Bunny".
