Another Musselman Man

Olly Musselman
When the new kittens arrived, I contacted Christine, our naming rights contest winner, and shared with her a picture of "her" kitten.

She promised to give it some good thought and would contact me as soon as she made up her mind. Later that afternoon, emailed me with her selection.

This handsome fluffxedo boy has officially been named Olly Musselman! AND it suits him perfectly!! Thank you Christine!! Nice work!!

  6. Oh Olly! You are quite adorable, with your little turned-down whiskers and your white lower lip... which needs little kittie-kisses!

  7. Awww, he has a white chin, just like the Butterbean :-D
    And oh yes, if the name was inspired by Ollie from Stan and Ollie, we share the same inspiration, because the first name that came to my mind when I saw this boy was "Obelix" ... due to his chubbyness and, erm, how to put it, he does seem to look just a little bit single-minded - but I bet a) it's just all that floof, and b) he's only acting!

  8. Christine, you are so right! One of my favorite things about the Cattery is naming kitties (both big and small). It's their eyes, absolutely. Isn't it wonderful?!
    And isn't Olly wonderful?!

  10. Olly you are just as cute as your brother, in your own special way. Good name choice Christine! Wow these boys are so sturdy looking! What little babes.

  11. It looks like a little milk drip on his chin! Welcome, Ollie! (and no, I'm NOT named after Stan Laurel...but I do occasionally enjoy their comedy!)

  12. Good golly, it's OLLY!! Fluffxedo is it, this little guy looks like quite the character, I'd love to cuddle up with him.

  13. What a handsome little gentleman with his milky chin and white bib and spats!!! Hello, Olly!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Christine - Olly's a great name for this little character! It certainly is there in his eyes! Welcome, Olly! How many brothers make up the Musselman men?

  16. So cute!! He look like Barry White in the first pic.

  17. Christine - you got it spot on!
    This little Olly-boy has possibly one of the most stubborn little chins I have ever seen on an IBK.

    But its stubborn with a major sweet streak!

  18. Olly is such a doll! Look at those baby blues

  19. Olly you little handsome fella...looks like the Musselman family is going to be irresistable...

  20. Great job, Christine! It suits him perfectly.

  21. thud.

    Yes, I keeled over from the cuteness. Luckily my own furry black kitty was on hand to revive me. I can tell that this new batch of itty bitties is going to break a lot of hearts.

  22. I have a little girl who is mostly black with a white belly and her name is Olive. We call her "Ollie" too. So, OBVIOUSLY, I think this name is purrfect!!!!!

    These guys do look like little muscle-men!!! Will there be an "Arnold" in the mix????

    ReplyDelete
  23. I see someone behind Olly!!! Wonder who it is...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh Olly! How I covet you with your little splayed feet! Too bad I'm an eastcoaster...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anon, I see TWO somebodies behind him in the first shot!!! Christine, I love the name. You did a spectacular job. I can def see this name aging with him well! (hint hint, future furrever parents!!).

    What I can't believe is that no one has squee-ed over his little white toes!

    SQUEE!!

    p.s. Laurie, you're plain out spoiling us with the multiple new babies so closely together!!! Keep it up!!!!!!!!

  26. Ha! Thought it said Oily, which seemed to be a bit of a strange thing to name a cat. Olly works better.

    ReplyDelete
  27. He does bear a resemblance to a certain Mr. Hardy...

  33. LMAO..Barry White..too perfect a name.

    Hugs and headbutts

  34. Oh, now Laurie's just teasing us... give us these two and making us wait for the others.. Guess that she does get a day off like the rest of us... but HURRY!!! :)

  35. Does the Pac. NW have an absurd number of longhairs or are they just saving the cutest cats for you? I've met met at least a couple dozen kittens now, and not a long hair in the lot of them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aww, so far, two kitties with white bibs. I can't wait to see pics of them with Charlene.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, Olly! I've always loved that name!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Olly! What a cutie you are! I love, love, love the curly whisker in the first picture. Awww!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ooooh, a fluffxedo? Love! Hello Olly, you darling kitty! Tuxedos melt me anyway... what am I saying, all kitties melt me, but tuxedos are still quite special in my eyes. I blame the purring angel tuxedo with the l-o-n-g whiskers that I know... but that's another story. anyway. *snugglies Olly*

  40. Hi all. I came across this thru a co-worker who has a nephew that volunteers here. I took a look and they really seem to care and take in the old, injured, ugly and view them all as beautiful and valuable. Perhaps if we all could give them a hand....

  41. Tuxfloofle! What a darling boy. Betcha he has toefeathers too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh! he looks so serious.
    he must have major important issues on
    his mind. so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't know - Olly looks a flummoxed about his new moniker in that last photo! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Squee!!!! I keep on coming back to these pictures of Olly and I've got to agree with Nadine that he looks like Obelix. An Obelix that's very satisfied to be properly named Olly.

    Now the first picture reminds me of Gossamer, the sneaker wearing hairy monster from Bugs Bunny! In a good way of course.
