Yes, LK finally told us what he would like to be called and he choose the name Fagin. Fagin is a character in the novel Oliver Twist (by Charles Dickens) and he is the leader of the orphans - the one who teaches the orphans how to steal and be criminals. The orphans would bring him their gleanings and he gave the orphans a place to live. Yes, we did consider the names Oliver and Dodger from the same novel, but we decided that the kitten would eventually become a cat so he would need an adult name. Plus he is grey just as the character Fagin is. Mommy and Aunt Susan say he is the Fagin from the musical Oliver! who is younger and more handsome than the Fagin in the novel (they went to see the musical together a couple of years ago and Fagin was one of Mommy's favorite characters). Anyway, we thought someone to teach the new kids how to be criminals would be very helpful on the Black Furrball. So Fagin is LK's new name! What do you kitties think?
Fagin is fitting in well. Dante and he are still friends and Jack is getting close enough to whap the little guy from time to time. He is eating like a little pig and has more energy than 5 kittens put together should have. Since he is a hand raised kitten, he has the tendancy to put the bitey on you when he wants to snuggle and Mommy and Daddy are doing their best to break him of this. Unforunately, Mommy and Daddy have been sick all weekend with a nasty virus and they both even stayed home from work with us today. That's why we do not have many pictures. Anyway, there's the update. Happy Monday everyone!!
