Kitten Cam - Holiday Edition - on The Pet Collective

Its here! The new kittens and their sweet mother. The mom was rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Control where she and her babies were brought in as strays.  The babies were born approximately November 12, 2012 and there are 2 black, one tuxedo, and three fluffy white kittens with black smudges on their heads.  A few goopy eyes in the mix, but hopefully these guys were old enough that their eyes developed better than Zelda and Hugo so they will recover quickly.

NEW SITE, NEW CHANNEL
The kitten cam moved for this litter to YouTube Live, under The Pet Collective. The Pet Collective is owned by the same company that puts on American Idol, X Factor, and other shows, so our cam sort of hit the big time!  You can view all the cams on their pages by going to http://www.youtube.com/user/ThePetCollective or access our Kitten Cam directly through http://www.kittencam.us.  Using that link is the best way to get there because it will determine which version of the player to show you, in case you are in an Apple device. We apologize for the inconvenience of switching sites, but A Second Chance Puppies and Kittens Rescue will get $.25 for every subscriber and will get a big publicity push, so it is worth it to the rescue.

THE CHAT
We love our viewers and have become quite a family over at Ustream, so to keep our family going we embedded the old ustream chat on a page on the rescue's website.  The easy link is http://tinyurl.com/ASCKittenCam or you can go to http://www.asecondchancerescue.org and click on the Live Kitten Cam link on the left navigation menu.  You Tube does not allow the comments to be embedded off the page like Ustream does, so I could not add that to our one page for viewing of both forums.  Hopefully someday YouTube will improve its social stream comments widget.

THE KITTENS
Mom originally came with the name Powder, though we can change it.  So far it looks like the kittens are all boys, a statistical rarity, but I checked them twice and there really weren't many that looked like they could go either way which is what often happens with babies.  They all looked to me like they were well endowed and were going to become real Tom Cats, if you know what I mean.

NAMES
We will hold a naming ceremony next week, after we have seen a little more of their personalities.  Current plan is for Tuesday night, unless there is some big event going on.  We want to go with a theme.  Some example themes that have been well received include: Cat-ablanca (Rick, Sam, Lazlo, Morocco, Cassie Blanca, etc), Reindeer names, Shakespeare characters, and Mad Men, to name a few.  Use the comments here (you can post as anonymous or enter your own name) to make suggestions and as a group we will name them.  Remember that the names will have to be hand written and typed by volunteers, and typed a million times in the chat, so try and keep them short.

  3. I'll throw in the Shakespeare theme idea. Here are just a few options: Romeo, Othello, Hamlet, Horatio (Hamlet), Oberon and Puck (midsummer night's dream), Duncan and Malcolm (Macbeth), and it goes on and on.

    1. my vote is for Shakespeare names :) Iago, Mercutio, Olivier, Pistol, Titus, Nestor....so many to choose from! (kittykatFL)

    2. I'll add Snug to the Shakespearean list. Snug, the joiner from A Midsummer Night's Dream. Who could resist a kitten named Snug?

  4. They look like adorable, wiggly piano keys! Maybe names like Wolfy and Franz and Johann and Haydn and Schubert... And somewhere in the group there may even be a Ludwig.

  12. I only have a pretty girls' name, in this case for the mommy. Why not name her 'Lumi'? It's Finnish for 'snow'. They're all so pretty.

  14. I'm the one who suggested the 'Casablanca' theme, but I'm not sure we should go with that now since this litter seems to be made up entirely of boys. We won't be able to use names like Ilsa and Cassie (as in Cassie & Blanca). We could still use Paris (as in "We'll always have" it), but perhaps we should use 'Casablanca' for another litter. Just a thought.

    Some more naming possibilities:

    Ghostbusters characters - Venkman, Ray, Winston, Ego, Louis and Zuul; mom can be Dana

    The Rat Pack - Frank, Dean, Sammy, Peter, Joey, Bogey (after Humphrey Bogart, the center of the original group of actors known as the Rat Pack); mom can be Shirley, after Rat Pack "mascot" Shirley Maclaine

    Star Trek - Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Sulu, Chekov; mom can be Uhura

    1. Correction: that should be Egon, not Ego

      And MacLaine, not Maclaine

      Delete
    2. I like the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers names. Easy to pronounce, easy for them to learn. I was the one that came up with Cassie and Blanca and love those names and that theme. Like Chuck said maybe we should wait to use the Casablanca theme until we have another litter with some little ladies in it.

  15. White kitties: Winston, Wilbur, Wendall
    Black kitties: Benny, Bailey, Baxter
    Mom: Magdelina (maggie)
