An unexpected guest.

I went out to the car really quick to look for something and, upon returning to the house, found this underfoot:



In the brief window in which both the garage and laundry room doors were open she apparently ninj'd her way in so that, as I opened the door into the kitchen, she looked up at me and uttered a matter-of-fact 'mew.'  Being a clever and thoroughly aware individual I quickly saw through her ruse, deducing that she was not one of the two cats already in residence (as they are approximately five times her size and not nearly so orange).

Just the same I have played along, giving her a sinkbath and feeding her an entire can of kitten food (in one go!  Her belly now looks like she swallowed a baseball).  Just a half an hour ago she actually made use of the improvised litter box under my computer desk (then stared at what she'd made for five minutes as though concerned that it might attempt to climb back in) and has now slipped into the adorable state of unconsciousness in which I have documented her.

I don't know whether or not we'll be keeping her.  I mean, I hate the notion of her ending up with people who wouldn't care for her, and the humane society is simply out of the question.  But she's a kitten, and they have a strong tendency to ultimately become cats.  I love cats, don't get me wrong, but I have trouble keeping up with the care and feeding of my turtle!  A turtle!  It's a rock with legs it seldom uses!

Still, we do already have two cats, and though this brings us exactly one cat closer to critical mass I think we could manage without too much additional fuss.

So.  Maybe with the keeping.  The real question is... what do I name her?  Open to suggestions.

What makes you think you have a choice here? Clearly she's adopted your household already...

Given her ninja ways, I'd go with Pixel [who was an orange cat] or Tomoro, a female Samurai of the Edo period who became a rather infamous ninja. [reputedly]
