When we brought our cat home from the animal shelter, she nestled in the palm of my hand. She seemed so small and helpless. I worried about how she would ever thrive. But this kitten was a survivor. She and her two siblings had been found by a hiker after their mother had been hit by a car. There is no telling how long they’d been out there without food or shelter. The other two didn’t survive but this feisty fur ball had clung to life at the staff fed her with an eye dropper and kept her warm with a heating pad.
What to call her? I thought of cute cat names. A helpful friend presented me with a cat names list. When trendy, cool female cat names seemed too cutesy for this little trooper, I turned to unisex names. Nothing seemed just right. So, I decided to sleep on my decision.
