    I think ‘Mr. Kitten’ has a nice ring to it… but Quill is pretty cool too.

    Jersey, I would get a cat just as an excuse to have that in my house, it’s amazing!

    The Irish word for fox is Sionnach. That’s also kinda cool. Pronounced she-un-ack.

    lol, people know me well. You’re about the third person to have linked me to that crazy cat tree It’s pretty awesome.

    Less than 48 hours!!!

    Also I forgot to add this here. This is from our visit a week and a half ago. Who wants to take a vote, green eyes like his dad? Or yellow eyes like Jasiri? Time will tell

    Oh gorgeous boy! The colour reminds me of some spices. I inevitibly end up looking at food-themed names.
    The first spice I thought of was Cinnamon. Cassia is a common cinnamon avaliable. Can be a uni-sex name I think. In Swahili, it is Mdalasini (or Dalasini)

    Curry is Binzari – haha, it would kinda rhyme with Jasiri lol
    Ginger is Tangawizi

    Or the colour of tea -Swahili is Chai (Chai also common name for spiced milk tea drink)

    His colour also reminded as Ground Mace, which is a tan colour. But Mace can have some negative connotations. I did look into this spice more and discovered its made for the red outcasing of the nutmeg, known as Aril or Arillus. I like the word Arillus.

    There are some names of spice mixes from around the world that could double as pet names. Harissa, Tandoori, Baharat, Marsala etc

    Oh, another Swahili word I came across is Baraka, which means “Blessing”. There was a doco-film but this name over 20 years ago. A visual showcase of cultures of the world and history. I hadn’t realised this was a Swahili word.

    lol, people know me well. You’re about the third person to have linked me to that crazy cat tree It’s pretty awesome.

    I think it was doing the rounds on facebook.

    Methinks I might have to get a tawny bunny one day so I can use that name. Haha. A castor mini rex. <3 Or a more red bunny like the Thriantas. Pretty sure we dont have that breed here. But there is might be some NZ reds about. Or the red satin buns…
    I currently have an Ailís that sounds a bit too much like Arillus.

    Lol, you’ve done more research than me, haha. Arillus is a cool name. And we do have Thrianta in Australia, I saw one earlier this year at a pet expo, so pretty.

    I could never call him Tandoori, all that makes me think of is Tandoori chicken XD

    He’s home!

    So much love for the little guy already. He’s super affectionate. The name Kion is back on the table because he was basically screaming at me the entire hour drive home, and Kion has a magical power roar, the roar of the ancestors, lol.

    Otherwise still tossing up Quill or Finnick as well. I was about to leave the room and spend time with Jasiri because he fell asleep, but then he woke up, saw me and crawled onto my lap. He’s adorable, purrs like a machine too.


    #1883263

    Yay, welcome home! Sounds positively adorable ^_^

    Ok, fox in Arabic is a tad tricky to show how to pronounce phonetically… sthaa’labu
    Lahab is flame
    Bariq is used for Arabic and Urdu language names and can be brilliant, bright, glittering…

    As per the October Chat thread, Mr Kitten is now officially named Jasper. While not on my shortlist, it’s something that popped into my head randomly and just seemed to be the right fit.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I like names that spring to mind! Welcome Jasper! Jasper & Jasiri sounds very nice together.
    AND here is your Lion King connection – Jasper is the name of the kid who played young SIMBA(!!) in the Australian production of The Lion King musical.

    Big Welcome Gorgeous Jasper!!!!

    I like the names of Jasper and Jasiri too. If I had a lot of kids I would probably be one of those weirdos who’s kid’s names all start with the same letter.

    Important update about Jasper. In short, he is a she.

    Long version: I took Jasper to the vet on friday for a check up as Jasiri has been very ill. The vet asked if I was sure he was a boy. He is not. There were 4 kittens in the litter, one boy and three girls. Two girls and the boy were desexed for pet homes and the third girl remained intact as she was going interstate to another breeder. When I went to pick Jasper up, the breeder made a mistake when she checked the gender and accidentally gave me the un-spayed female. We had her for a week and a half before the vet noticed the mistake.

    Friday was very stressful as the breeder was pushing to swap the kittens and correct the mistake. I understand that and I understand the importance of specific breeding lines that she’s worked so hard towards, but hubby and I had bonded with Jasper, and I’d bonded her with Jasiri with great results and she’d been introduced to the rabbits and our parrot. I just couldn’t forget about that week and a half, and with Jasiri really ill I couldn’t put her through the stress of yet another new kitten. I feel terribly guilty but I pushed back and the breeder changed her mind.

    That was two days ago, I still feel really horrid about it but it wasn’t my fault and obviously not something I could have foreseen happening. We’re exchanging the correct paperwork this week (desexing/ microchip/vaccination) so then it will all be sorted. I do feel bad, and I also wonder what sort of home the little boy will end up in, but little Jasperina (thanks Bam for that suggestion, lol) was such a perfect fit for our family, I couldn’t let that go and risk the other kitten not fitting in.

    Jasper will be keeping her name, and we’ll have to get her spayed, probably mid November after her next vaccination.

    Wow!…Crazy! It was obviously meant to be. Fate stepped in. I would be like you…what’s done is done.

    She could be called “Foxy” for sure now…hehe

    Azerane, I’m so sorry this happened, what a heartbreak.  I was actually going to mention (jokingly) to make sure you get the right kitten when you go to pick him up, since they all look the same. I can’t believe the breeder made such a mistake. Looking at your pictures, I had been wondering why they weren’t wearing any collars to identify them, given that one female and your boy were already spoken for.  Of course you would expect her to be able to identify the only male, at least.  Well, you got a kitten that fits in with your fur family, that’s what’s most important.

    I guess there’s no chance to get the little guy, too…?

    Haha, I think she might have freaked if i wanted the little boy as well, lol. I wasn’t heartbroken to have a girl, momentary disappointment perhaps until I remembered how amazing she is. In some of the photos they have collars, the fluff can cover them at times. But you’re right, boy from girl should have been a no brainer. We seem to still be on good terms at least.

    And just for the record, Jasper is amazing. She LOVES to cuddle, which I love. I frequently find myself trapped on the couch or in bed because she’s snuggling me. On Saturday we went to the vet for her vaccination, the vet couldn’t hear her heartbeat because of the purring, and then she just sat on my one arm and I petted her while the vet injected her. No wiggling and she didn’t have to be restrained, purred the whole time. She’s famous at the clinic now too, all the vet nurses were saying “ooh, is this the one that was meant to be a boy but is a girl?”

    I can’t help but wonder what the little boy would have been like, and not that I subscribe much to fate or anything, but sometimes I wonder if the mistake was meant to be, she’s perfect
