Back to the First

We got a peek at this lady earlier in the week, but now we're back with a formal introduction.

First, let's take another look at her sweet little face.


 And check out the little smudge on her chin.


And now the name.

This is Cheryl McGillicuddy.

Robyn's named this little miss.   She's named after Robyn's mom, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last month.

Here's what Robyn had to say...
"Since she was the one who really gave me my love of cats from the time I was a wee sprog, I think it would be nice to name a kitty after her."

I wholeheartedly agree, Robyn.   And I'm sure Cheryl McGillicuddy is proud to be the namesake of your dear, kitty-loving mom.

Hugs to you, Robyn.  We are sorry for your loss.


  1. What a lovely tribute to your mom, Robyn. Speaking as a mom I'd be delighted to be remembered in a similar way. Cheryl McGillicuddy, you are just precious.

  2. A beautiful tribute and a beautiful little lady! I loooove her nose!

  3. What a fitting tribute! A beautiful special kitty and your Mom sounds like she was a beautiful special woman. My sympathies on your loss.

    Love the nose and the chin smudge - and jeez Laurie - what do these kittens do - follow your instructions for posing? LOL.

  4. Cheryl, so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom 15 years ago and though this sounds hard to believe right now, there will come a day that when you think of your mother it will bring a smile to your face instead of tears. She will always be with you.

    What a gorgeous baby girl, I just love those 2 tone noses. Penny (my avatar girl) has one and I have to boop it at least once a day.

  5. i just wanna boop that little nose!


  6. Gorgeous little one and what a lovely name.

    Really sorry for your loss Robyn.

  7. Cute, kinda looks like the new one we just got.

  8. I am very sorry for your loss, Robyn. Naming perfect little girl is such a fine tribute to your mother.

    I'm particularly fond of this little baby with her beautiful face and determined walk. I hope we get to see a lot of little Miss Cheryl.

  9. What a lovely tribute to your Mom, Robyn. I too am very sorry for your unexpected loss. I'll bet that your cat-loving mother would be so very pleased with such a sweet and special honor.

  10. Oh wow. Look at her gorgeous little paint-brushed face! She's darling.:)

  11. Beautiful name Robyn!

    I sure hope this trio of beauties goes together to their furever home. Can you imagine the sheer happiness of having three lovely sisters, soft as bunnies running around your house? I can....even though I have two darlings already...I can imagine it. And it makes me want a bigger house, right this instant. :)

  12. Oh my she is a little cutie! And a lovely tribute too =^..^=

  13. Oh! What a perfect name for such a sweet little girl! I can't wait to see the family photo of these dolls. :D

  14. {{{Robyn}}} So sorry for your sudden loss! What a sweet memorial for your mother!

    Cheryl McGillicuddy - what a cutie pie! *boop* *boop*

  15. Cheryl is just GORGEOUS! I LOVE all the smudges going on! <3

  16. Oh, what a cutie! So sorry about your mom, Robyn; I'm sure she would be very happy that you named this little sweetie after her.

  17. Little Miss Cheryl is a beauty. I bet she will be a charmer as she grows up...since I can already see it!

    Miss Butterbean will have a great time teaching her new charges.

    Robyn, this is an amazing way to memorialize your mom. ((hugs))

  18. Nanette said.....What a lovely name for a lovely kitten and a lovely gesture. I hope this naming brings you comfort and healing.
