Bennington

So hey...it's 2011. And we got our new kitteh. His new name is Bennington.

Hi!

Gia came back from SC with him on Sunday.  And he really might be the cutest thing I've ever seen.  I can't say that too loud in front of the other cats.  They get jealous.  Besides, they were all equally as cute at this age, and they still rock the cute to this very day.  So enough already!

He's got the oddest/most awesome coloring I've ever seen.  White boots, dark tail...those crazy Grandpa Munster tufts of fur in his ears.  Then there are those three white splashes on his face.  Like someone swiped him with a paintbrush and some white paint and it just hit him in those three spots. And even though his eyes look blue in that picture, they look mostly green in person.  Which is cool.

The other cats haven't really welcomed him into our home yet.  He's mostly been hanging out in the bedroom on the bed.  I don't blame him.  But they will eventually let him into their reindeer games.  It may take a few days though.

Oh, and he's named after this madman.  That's how we do.

And Happy Birthday, Mom!  (She doesn't read this)

UPDATE: And a Happy Birthday to J.R.R. Tolkien.  Well...of course he's dead now, but still.  Raise a glass to "The Professor" tonight at 9PM, if you are into that kind of thing.

Way to start of the year with a freakin' cat post, dude.

Yeah...I'm disgusted with myself.

He IS adorable. Is he a cuddle-bug? He looks like one. :-)

Did you take your cat to a professional studio for a portrait?

B.E. Earl said...

Savannah - Sickening, right?

ETW - Yeah, so far. Who knows what will happen once the other cats teach them their evil ways.

RW - the worst kind.

Avitable - No...that's where I draw the line. That was actually the last photo that the breeder took of him before Gia picked him up. She is a photographer and does her own portrait work for all of her cats.

can a little kitten by the name of "Fezzy" be too far behind?

Wabbit - I've seen it on some of the older folks. Not attractive.

Slyde - Let's hope far behind.

Marty - And Tolkien!

Sybil - cute and sappy. Those are my new years resolutions. More cute and sappy. Except...no.

Oh My God. Smitten with your kitten, and you just get cuter every year with your cat posts! Congrats, I look forward to seeing cute kitten videos and stuff. Because I just can't get enough cute in 2011. Bring it on!

That is one beautiful cat.

We found two abandoned kitties next to the castle in our town last week. Someone's coming round to hopefully give them a home tonight - poor little buggers were starving and way too young to be out. Tiny wee things. Like I say, hopefully we'll find a home for them tonight.

B.E. Earl said...

badger - You are a good man, you are. Well done! (You have a castle in your town? Wow...must be odd living in the Old World.)

Every time I see this kittens name, I am going to think of Bennigans.....which is going to make me associate this cat with Onion Rings. That is how my world works.
