A Pearl of a Girl

I asked Opal the Human (not Opal the Kitten)  if she might be interested in naming a kitten from this litter and she was more than happy to oblige.   She took the job quite seriously, and thought hard about it for several days.

Because of her gray coat and gray eyes, Opal decided "Pearl" would be a good choice.   Pearl's middle name is Mae, just like Opal's.

Thank you Opal for giving it so much thought  and selecting such a lovely and fitting name for our little girl.

Ms Petrie, you are a Pearl, indeed.

  2. I love this kitten's eyes. Are they still gray like in the first picture or are they turning more green? Beautiful either way.

  17. I love Pearl's little expressive ears - "I think you're nice but I"m not 100% sure at the moment..."

  18. Such a pretty name chosen by a truly adorable child for a beautiful little kitty -- what else could be better? Pearl, you are indeed a pearl of a kitten, and Opal is, of course, a pearl of a girl. I'd say they're two of a kind!

  19. Lovely name for this beautiful gray girl. Opal did a purrfect job. And no oysters were harmed during this naming!

  20. Aww, nuts, I commented using my son's log-in. Nicarus is actually Robin Larkspur. Does anyone else do this, or am I the only, um, dork?

  25. Presumably if you'd solicited Opal (The Kitten)'s input this little fuzzbundle would be called "Brrrt-mao"?

  26. Dear Pearl Mae Petrie, have I mentioned that I think you're absolutely PERFECT? And that I love your goofy little face?

  27. Pearl Mae is the perfect name for this little girl. Thanks, Opal!

  33. Opal Mae is such a thoughtful, creative girl. I've been taken with her generous heart since first meeting her here, and am so pleased she was chosen to name a kitten.

    As for Pearl Mae ... what a sweet beauty of an itty bitty.
