TODAY'S SPECIAL!
Each day can bring so many surprises, it is always amazing to me how you just never know where each day will take you... you could have a day just like yesterday or a day like every other or perhaps you could win millions of dollars... But this Friday we had an extra special day! (not in the "I won millions of dollars" special, but still SPECIAL!)

As Mike and I sat working as usual with our office door cracked open for a nice breeze, we had a little visitor just come walking in, as if she had been living with us forever... a precious, scared and STARVED little black and white kitty hesitantly walked right on into our lives. With a MEOW that can be heard across the world, she won my heart!

We were not sure we should keep her since we are moving back across the country in less than two months, but i am slowly (why lie) quickly, becoming attached to our little surprise addition! She is hesitant and sweet. I can see her becoming more comfortable around here, coming inside more, jumping on the couch or bed... I am sure our cat Penny is not quite as happy about our new edition, but she will grow to love her overtime. She leaves each night and then always comes back, so i guess it is meant to be! I am awaiting the day she just does not leave at night... i feel it coming, when this happens, i will know she is here to stay!

So far our name choices are:
Captain Zapp Brannigan (mikes choice, a character from Futurama)
Obie (reason: she is from Ocean Beach or "OB" since we are moving back east she can be our ode to our lives in OB...
Polly, our other cat is Penelope, so i thought it was cute, Penny & Polly.
Bruyant, which means noisy in french and she is SOOOO noisy
Pantoufle, the kangaroo from chocolat, because she came in like the wind and our lives have been drastically changing recently without notice...

I think Pantoufle might be the winner (sounds like Pontoof) What do you think?!? share your ideas!

I am happy to have Pantoufle (?) and glad she chose our door to walk through! What a great little gift and a wonderful addition to the Earmark-Berndt Family! Hooray for life's little surprise moments!

Being a recent adoptee of a pet I can completely relate! I like Obie for some reason, but love Pantoufle too. What sends you back to the East Coast??

I really like Obie too! Obie or Pantoufle. They're both super cute and unique!
Happy new addition to the family :)

fioretta said...

My vote is for Pantoufle or Polly! What a cutie.

Megan said...

Aww, what a cute kitty! My first cat was black and white, her name was Sami...so that's my name suggestion, lol. I do like Obie, though.

Jennifer said...

Wow! What a cool story. It was meant to be.
I like Polly. Cats like simple names.

Ooh! So cute. Her face is killing me :) It was fate that she walked through your door :) You must let us know when she's finally home to stay!

I love Pantoufle! Sounds perfect to me.

I also love Pantoufle, and Polly too. Bless you for taking her in.

saffron said...

Ahh, she is so cute! I love her black nose, I hope she gets a home with you!

Distressing Delilah said...

How could you not love a face like that! Send her my way if you change your mind! I know you won't though!

TheresaJ said...

I, too, love Pantoufle. She's adorable and it's perfect. Obie is pretty cute too, but it makes me think Star Wars. :) -- and if that isn't your intention, I think you'll be explaining it all the time.

There are no accidents. She walked into the right house. You're a good hearted person, and animals know these things.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your wonderful comment. It made my day!

Marilyn said...

Aw how cute! I wish I had a pet to keep me company while I work.

Genevieve said...

Ok, so Pantoufle is awesome! And we must have been related in some past life...as we are now both married to a Mike, are adopting pets on the same day, of the same color, and had our cat been a female, would have been named Penelope!!...Seredipity!!

I just want to snuggle her sweet litle face!!

Kristen said...

Cute kitty!
I think I'd have to go with Captain Zapp Brannington, just because the thought of you calling for him/her? is pretty funny :)

Breanna LaRow said...

Congratulations on your new addition!

I like Pantoufle. Its definitely a different name.

Sew Gracious said...

We have a black & white kitty named Moo. ;-)
