Daughter, TJ, and husband stopped by and brought this little unit with them. He was found in the drainpipe outside her office, wet, hungry and frightened. She picked him up and took him to the vet for a checkup (everything is OK), and now it looks as though they will become cat peeps. He’s very tiny (as you can see in the photo). The vet estimated his age to be three to four weeks.

As of this moment, a name has not been chosen but. as I understand it, currently under consideration are: Howard, Dexter, Perry (a play on “Purry”), Buscemi, Rex, Darwin (survival of the fittest).

It’s impossible not to become instantly attached to the little guy.


  1. They are such delightful creatures and have a very sweet way of endearing themselves to even the hardest of hearts. Surprised calling him “Junior Jr.” hasn’t made the short list of naming possibilities.

  2. Only one name will be right for this little bugger… “DRAINPIPE!” or “DP”

    Though I do like Buscemi

    Hmmm I’m channeling names from the Sopranos…
    Silvio, Paulie Walnuts, Big Pussy, Johnny “Sack,”

  3. Very cute indeed! I would vote on a name but I’m so bad at that I leave it to others instead. LOL.

  7. Thanks for the cat love. It seems we’ve settled on Cato… A fine Republican name! :)(

    You should see my dad with him. He’s like the Cat Whisperer.

  8. Beyond cute. Stock up on catnip, it’s the most fun you can have without cable, watching a kitty go nutso in the ‘nip. Of course, rehab later might cost you a bit.

  14. Awww sweet kitteh!
    Give it a fews days and let the personality tell you. I named our cat Osgood (after a favorite goalie) and it was quickly appparent the name SHOULD have been “Satan’s Little Helper”. F’n cat was another option.
