|I'm the youngest of the clan, so they're letting me speak for them. *g* Otherwise, there'd be a whole lot of posts and Meowmy can't type that fast.
Smoky's the oldest, we think. She was a stray that Meowmy took in and, after several litters, finally spayed. We know she's at least 7 years old, but she could be older. She was named for her wonderful grey fur.
Joey's the next oldest, sort of, at 3 this coming March. He's the only male in the household, hoomans included, and revels in it. We're his "harem", he says. He's the son of Peanut, a kitten we rescued and Schroeder, an orange stray tom we used to have. Schroeder's gone over the Bridge we think. Peanut's living on a farm with Joey's siblings. He was named both for his orange colour and the fact that he used to stand up and look like a little kangaroo.
Sari's the next oldest, in terms of how long she's been with the family. We're not sure how old she is exactly, but we're pretty sure she's at least 4. We found her outside our new house one cold December day and she's been with us ever since. My youngest hooman sister named her after a Manga character.
Salem (In Memory Of) was one of Smoky's kittens, but he ran afoul of a minivan. He would have been 2 this coming April. He was named because he was black and Meowmy has a wicked sense of humour.
Sparky is a calico that was trying to live underneath a neighbour's porch. My oldest hooman sister rescued her and she was named by a friend of the family - for her sparkling mischievous eyes. We figure she's just coming up to a year old.
Harley was rescued by Meowmy, from a crowd of kids that had already picked her up and thrown her across the street. Meowmy was mad enough not to consider the dangers of opening the door to a bunch of gang members to rescue Harley. We figure she's about a month younger than Sparky, maybe two and she was named because her purr is so loud. Auntie Shandy named her.
Last but not least, there's me. I have two names because my youngest hooman sister and my Meowmy couldn't agree on a name. Meowmy says she got shanghai'd into accepting another stray (I was living under another neighbour's porch) and my hooman sister wanted to name me after another Manga character. So I got both names.
