|A Cat Named... "Quelp"?
We got a kitten from the Linda McNatt Animal Care and Adoption Center a couple of weeks ago. I am preparing for the usual, but somewhat awkward, question about what we have named her. Her official name is Katy, but how we got there is quite a story.
James said he was going to call her “Cat” regardless of what we named her. That sounds a bit like he doesn’t like this kitty, or perhaps even cats in general, but he was our last cat’s favorite person. He spoiled her and spent more time with her than the rest of us.
Matthew said he would probably call her “Kitty” regardless of what we named her. We thought of Kitana from Mortal Kombat, so Cat and Kitty would be good nicknames. As we got acquainted with her, and saw how cute she is, that seemed like too violent a name.
I came up with Katy, because Cat and Kitty would sound the same to her. Nobody else liked that name either.

Protecting Minor Children
When a baby comes into a family either by birth or adoption, excitement is over the top. There are showers and flowers, names to choose, a nursery to decorate and that’s just the beginning! Along with the celebration comes an awesome sense of responsibility. We make sure we are eating the right food, avoiding anything that might be harmful, getting a good car seat and making sure it is installed properly.
Anyone who has raised a child to adulthood can, and will, be sure to tell the young parents how many more decisions await and how many more important ways you will be required to protect your child. Now, I am going to ask some tough questions, but please know that I am also available to help find good options.
