Our 150th Kitten Now Has a Name!
I'm a tad too misty to write anything, so I'm just going to copy and paste April's sweet email.
I've been pondering names for days. I thought I might like to go with Charles, after my grandfather who recently passed away. With the addition of the surname Gibson, though, I wasn't sure - not that Charlie Gibson is a bad namesake, mind you - just a little too obvious. :)
As the past few days played out, with the addition of Gibson, and Rutherford, Sherman, Cedric, and Pheona taking their names, and the stars lining up for me to have the honor of naming such a special kitten - #150! Holy cow! - the pressure was on.
Clearly a name of distinction was in order, and Charles certainly fit that bill. But he needed something more. I liked the idea of adding an "L" name - and then it came to me. What better way to name this little guy than to honor the woman behind it all - and so, Laurent, in homage to you, Laurie, for all you have done for so many - for the kittens you foster, the shelter you so wholeheartedly support, and those of us fortunate enough to read the blog.
Hope he likes it!
He does! Charles Laurent Gibson likes it, and so do I. Actually, we love it.
Thank you, April. Thank you.
