What's Wrong with this (Gratuitous Kitten) Picture?

The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true.
~ Holly Black

I'll give you a hint - this is that little nameless stray kitten that has been hanging around OUTSIDE our house...  

See how cute she looks hiding in the shrubbery?  curled up in a flower bed?  stretched out on the grass?  scampering up a tree?

What?  She's no longer outside, you say?  But... how can that be?  

Tell me the truth - is it too late for me?  Will I ever learn to say "No" ?

Speaking of "nameless" - that part, at least, is still true.  Do you see that she's missing the tip of one ear?  My husband said that, if she was a "he", a good name would be Vincent (for Van Gogh) - but what should we do for a female?  Any ideas?  


  1. Maybe you could take inspiration from Van Gogh's paintings? Like Sunny (for the sunflowers) or Starry?

    Or you could just call her Vinnie anyway.

    1. Hi Becky! Thanks for those good suggestions... I'll definitely run them by my husband. :)

    2. PS - we may have learned the truth behind her ear - this may mean that she was part of the trap-neuter-release program... Not having to pay for neutering works for us! ;)
