Introducing Anne Bonny & Mary Read

Previously known as The Two Black Kitties.

The poll pretty much split amongst three names, with Anne Bonny & Mary Read second, and Thelma & Louise first.

There were a lot good of suggestions from the comments, and I thought about having another poll with them added, but finally decided that enough was enough. I really didn't like Thelma and Louise very much, and thought Anne Bonny and Mary Read were more interesting names, at least to me, so here are:

yes i thinks the parents will decide verysoon never ever to leaves us. but the reason they had to re-start our trainings is because my little brother still didn't even get to be trained as good as me and he keeps having to start over..

The Furry Fighter said...

ooooh-aaah my little Pirate Kitties!
the names suit them...well chosen.

fanks for coming by to see my too, i really appreciate the thoughts and specially the purrs xxx

Katie & Da Katz said...

About Mary's eye. See if you have a Veterinary Supply place in your town or somewhere nearby. Most people don't realize that you don't have to have a vet license to get meds for your animals. At least in most states.

A supply place should be able to help you get something inexpensive without a clinic visit.

If you don't, I can send you some eye medicine that might help. Let me know.

=^..^=

Daisy said...

They are adorable, and pretty names, too!

We are safe from the Florida fires, but the air is very smoky and yucky around here. We could sure use some rain!

The Cat Realm said...

Cool names! Very fitting for two gorgeous cats!

P.S. Don't forget to post you picture at our reception blog!

cap'n nelson john la purr, atcher sarviss!

peeyes: an' we LOVED yer comment on twilight muse's blog--we need to organize a mass front-lawn poop-in at her house (or at least all around an' on his vehicle)! our mom din't take up wif our dad until she was SURE he would do anyfing for a kitty that SHE would; ya gotta be careful, these days.

Lorianna said...

Hi! Thank you so much for your heartfelt Purrs for my Billie. It means so much. She is doing just so much better!
I love the pirate girl names for your two new family members. Pirating was not kind to those two ladies, but I have always liked and admired their spirit. Perfect kitty girl names. They certainly took over your ship. :)
Hugs and Purrs to you and yours from Billie and me,
Lorianna

HotMBC said...

Oh they are great kitties, we're glad they have a new forever home.

Katie & Da Katz said...

Oh thanks fur advise on screening!! Will be awhile, but the house has a big old style front porch that needs remodelling!!

-Mawmee, Subbing for Katie Too who went to a Ninja Cat Meeting about 5 hours ago... And it's been raining. She's a bit fed up with being cooped in fur days, but shes out without a collar and I'm not getting much sleep between emptying the trash cans of gutter water and waiting for Miss Ninja to come home.

TT said...

Fank you for leaving purrs! You won't believe me if I tells you, stop by when you has a chance its a miracle! And Mom Bean has ALOTS of 'splainin!!!

Lorianna said...

How are you and your kitties? Eventually, I may try new treats for my cats, but right now, I'm so freaked out with what Billie went through. Food allergies are so unfair. Thanks for checking in. :)
Gentle Purrs,
Lorianna
