Ariadne, Arthur, & Mal

Just one and a half hours ago, I picked up three little kittens and brought them to their new (temporary) home.  On their official documents, they are called Alex, Anastasia, and Alicia.  I'm not a big fan of those names, so my sisters and I have been bouncing some names back and forth.  Brad, Chantal, Emily (but that one was a joke); Simba, Nala, Kiara; Mickey, Minnie, Daisy; Juno, Leah, Bleeker; Peter, Wendy, Tink.

But I think we've settled on one Rachel suggested: Ariadne, Arthur, and Mal.  Named after the characters in Inception.  (Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Cotillard, respectively.)  It's definitely unique and we're in love with the name Ariadne in this household.  So let's meet our latest trio.

Meet Arthur
Male, domestic short hair, grey and white, 2 1/2 months old
Name for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Inception character as the point man


Meet Ariadne
Female, domestic short hair, black, 2 1/2 months
Named for Ellen Page's character as the architect


Meet Mal
Female, domestic medium hair, black, 2 1/2 months
Named for Marion Cotillard's character as Dom Cobb's projection of his wife


They're the oldest kittens we've brought home and now our fifth litter.  (Remember Charlie, Dexter, and Little Bear; Banjo, Mandy, and Ukie; Gena, Garrett, George, and Galena; and Holly and Polly?)

Their surgery is schedule for the 5th of April, so it looks like they'll probably only be here a couple of weeks.  If everything goes according to schedule, they'll be gone by the second week in April, but hopefully the humane society will be overflowing with kittens by then and we'll get some more right away!

  1. Wow, those pictures of the Inception characters look almost just like the kittens do! Well done, eh?
