I know many of us are not helping with particularly practical names Purron, but this is fun :-)

Okay.
Foreground: Sparky
Right side: Spock
Left side: Could be "Spats", but I also like "Hoot"
Rear: "Shadow", or "Max"
I think a potential adopter would find a name like "Shadow" pretty irresistible for a black cat.

Rarely did my cats hear their real names. It's funny to have pet names for ummm..pet names. A few of mine were...Butter Bean, Bubba, Tootsinator, Chickles, Toe Man and Cheekie Monkey

Twilight 1 and Twilight 2 for the two up close ones (I admit, it took me a while to see them in the picture)

George - the grey and white one because he looks like my kitty named George

Coal - for the cutie eating in the back

Great suggestions everyone!

Today I dipped them for the 4th time in as many weeks to treat their ringworm which is almost all gone now. It's real fun for me and the kittens

DH and I are often called on to treat the ringworm cases since we know how to deal with it. We use gloves and keep them in a big cage in a spare bedroom to prevent it from spreading to us or our cats. While ringworm is a pain to deal with, I don't think it should result in euthanasia. Many, many cats and dogs get this and it's not a serious condition for people or pets. The kittens enthusiastically agree with this statement

They will be examined and tested by the shelter's vet prior to adoption. Not cool to adopt these kittens into families, particularly if they have kids, unless we're sure it's all cleared up. These kittens will go fast. They're kinda plain looking but are gentle, friendly and full of personality. Plus there aren't that many kittens this time of year. They even purred when I dipped them in the smelly ringworm treatment solution!

I always wanted to have a gray cat named Earl Grey, but that's only one name....

Purron, just wanted to thank you on behalf of all you do for our feline friends.
