Black Long Hair Kitten Has A Home!

                         The ‘Thinker’ has a home!

This section of the blog is called “The Vet’s Pets”.  So here it is that I announce the following great news;  my husband and I decided to adopt the black long hair kitten!  He is an easy-going guy who should fit in nicely with our other cats.  Every day, I place him in a carrier while Kalani and Tigre have the run of the house.  The two older boys aren’t quit sure what to make of this little bundle of energy.  They sit on the sofa and observe him from a safe distance.  ‘Fuz’ is his temporary name and he meows pathetically from the crate.  He wants to play with his older brothers in the worst way.

Now that he is part of the family, he needs a proper name.  My husband and I like Hawaiian names because they remind us of our honeymoon in Kauai and twentieth (yikes) anniversary there a short time ago.  Please send us your ideas!  We are having a tough time finding a name that suits his personality.  The person who suggests the name we choose will win an autographed copy of my first book which will be published next year.  Mahalo!  – Dr. Nelson
