Elliott is probably not a very popular name and especially not for a girl. I need to find another name that is not common to name kitten #2.

I know exactly what you mean. It takes my family months to find a name that we like that is not common. My dog went 6 months w/ out an official name (yes, I know we are horrible people) finally we decided on one. I just hate naming animals something that is unorginal or common.

I found Phoebe in the top 1000, but no Fessig or Gemini. I thought for sure Gemini would be in there. Phoebe is the only one I didn't name.
(I got her from an old roomate who was unable to keep her.)

What? Mom didn't make the list? We're so original -- but she's definitely the matriarch of our cat family.

Here's my boy Max -- he was a stray that I used to take care of before we found him a home about three years ago. I loved this boy and miss seeing him around.
