I got a text today about half way through my morning at work. A kitten that had been gifted to a resident and now needed a home. Was I interested, they asked.
After weird dreams I had had last night, and my knee jerk reaction remembering how we got Buddy and Missy. I replied with send a picture. My thought being if it’s a full grown ‘kitten’ I’d say no.
Instead I get a picture of a barely old enough to leave momma kitten. I couldn’t say no. Plus, she was a calico like my old lady kitty Priss.
Her temporary name was Zelda. Though I have nothing against Zelda, Nathan and I both agreed it wasn’t really a cute kitten name. I suggested Sandy due to her patches of tan. That was so, so. We ran through a whole host of other names and then started translating options to other languages.
Finally we settled on Nadi which means River- I thought it fitting as an acknowledgement of how things have just been flowing to us lately. Honoring the Divine process.
I think she’ll fit right in, and super cute. Buddy isn’t sure what to think of her, Missy and Priss are a bit standoffish yet, the dog would slobber all over her if she’d even let him close enough, but my kids think she’s great.
