Magic and Maya....need name suggestions!
    #7810695 - 12/29/07 04:33 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

So, today I went to meet some cats at a local rescue group.  I wasn't really expecting to come home with one - I just wanted to see if maybe something clicked, and maybe I would meet a kitten I liked.  I was intending to bring home maybe 1 kitten.  Definitely a kitten though, since they are easier to integrate in to homes with existing animals, and DEFINITELY easier to introduce to dogs.  Well, all my brilliant plans went to shit when I saw Magic. 

She was a huge all black cat, hanging out in her little cage, sleeping.  I definitely didn't want a huge adult cat, but then I looked closer.  Magic's ears were screwed up - what was wrong with her ears?  I asked about her, and they told me that Magic had been found living outside with her kittens, and that they initially thought she lost her ears due to frostbite.  Then she saw a vet who took a closer look - no, they were too symmetrical - someone had actually CUT her ears, to make her look like a damn puma.  She was depressed in the cage, and I asked to meet her.  She was so happy to be held that she just flopped in my arms and fell asleep.  They told me that she was only 1 year old, and that she had no health problems, and her ears didn't bother her at all.  But I told them no, that I needed a kitten, because an adult cat like Magic would never be able to get used to my dogs.  "Actually, she was fostered with a Golden Retriever."  I said "Ok then, I'd like to adopt her".  They started at me, shocked.  I was even shocked that had come out of my mouth. Magic purred, and continued sleeping in my arms.  Then, on the way to their desk to fill out the necessary forms, I saw Maya.  She was in a cage with 2 other kittens - they were litter mates, and they were feral, and she wasn't.  Every time she tried to get close, they hissed and growled at her, so she hung out in the corner, alone.  I said "She's awfully cute.  I don't think Magic would like an annoying tiny kitten living with her though, she seems really low key."  They said, "Actually, they know each other.  They're been fostered together."  "Ok, I'll take her too".  My fiance was going to KILL me.  Here I am, not planning on coming home with a cat, suddenly coming home with 2?  I was as good as dead.  So, I brought them home, and he said "They're perfect."  Magic is currently sleeping on the back of his desk against the wall, and Maya is attacking my hands while I type.  They'll take a few days to fully get used to the other animals, but I'm confident that they'll adjust.  Maya actually seems to LIKE the dogs.  Magic will take a little while, since she's a bit older. 

We don't mind their names, but might like to change them, you know, to give them a fresh start and whatnot. 

Magic looks like a teddy bear to me, with her ears rounded like that, but Bear isn't a great name for a girl kitty.  I thought about calling her Puma, but I don't like that much either I don't think - any ideas? 

Maya actually might fit her name pretty well.  She's sweet, loves to be held, and purrs like a motorboat as soon as you pick her up.  But she's also really feisty and seems to be everywhere at once. 

Here are some pictures of the 2 cats that I didn't expect to bring home today :heart: 

Here is Maya - she's about 8 weeks old











and here's Magic.  She's about 1, and all black.  She needs to lose a few pounds, but hey, who doesn't right??

Isn't she great?  I can't believe she sat there for 4 months and no one adopted her.  She's a great cat.  Once she is a bit less scared and apprehensive about the new animals, she's going to be awesome here.  Maya is a little nut case.  She's attacking my hands and attacking the screen as I type :lol:

Nice cats , although Magic looks like a stoner with the sleepy eyes :P

How about Houdini , sounds more original than Magic. Gratz on the generous move on your part to adopt these needy cats :P

I like Houdini, although it may be more appropriate for a male cat.

I don't know, I kind of like Magic and Maya as they are or maybe Magic and Mayhem.

The only other names that come to mind are Soma (for Magic) and Chia (for Maya).

Funny you mention Mayhem - we actually just tossed around the idea of naming her Havoc - she's a little spitfire!

I actually suggested Spook for the black one, and then decided that since it was sometimes used as a racial slur, that may not be the best idea?

Oreo is way too common for a black and white kitty though :P

For the black one, she really looks like a bear or a panther or puma or something, so we're trying to think of something along those lines.

For the kitten, we are thinking maybe Pandora.  She's obsessed with this little cardboard box we have here, so Pandora's Box seems fitting :smile:  I can't wait to get the black one to a vet to see what she weighs - she's got to be like 20 pounds!

I don't know why but I prefer giving pet animals human names. Like my fish, who I named Bill. Bill the Fish.

Cute kitties!

The name Coal might be good for the black one....I like Silly and Simon too, but Simon is more of a boys name and they're both girls :smile:

Magic is beautiful!  Maya is a sweet little bug too, but what kitten isn't, really?  :wink:

I have a thing for black cats.  A lot of people don't like them for superstitious reasons and that's why a lot of them sit in shelters, too.  They're always the last ones from the litter who find a home.  Or the only adult in a petstore full of kittens.

Magic is so cool.  She's different.  I like her.

That's what struck me about Magic too, Bom.  She looks special.  When I was there yesterday, meeting all of the cats, there were cages full of kittens, Siamese cats, persians, you name it...and for some reason, my eyes went directly to her.  She had this look on her face lying in her little box like she had just given up, and it was really heart  breaking.  The majority of the kittens that were there yesterday actually got adopted - the woman who I applied through emailed me to let me know that Magic's 2 kittens got adopted yesterday too....I was SO happy to hear that.  She had been separated from them like a month earlier, and they felt like since there were 2 kittens, they should stay together.  I desperately wanted to adopt Magic AND her 2 kittens to keep them all together, but they said it was better to keep them separated and that they may not even remember each other at this point.  I felt so much better after hearing that they were no longer stuck in a cage!  Maya is a little psycho - and is such an attention whore.  When we woke up this morning she came running from the other end of the house, meowing, just desperate for love.  She purrs like crazy as soon as you pick her up or pet her.  She's starting to want to play with the other cats, and follows them around, but as soon as they notice her she gets scared and growls at them.  She'll figure it out soon :smile:  Magic is spooked by the new animals, but she's really calm and loves people.  Pretty soon she'll know that this is her new home, and that no one is going to hurt her here.  I was a bit worried that she might be sensitive around her ears because of what happened to them, but she loves having her ears rubbed, and likes to do "head bumpies" and rub her face against you for affection.  I think they're perfect.  I was quite worried that Pete was going to get mad at me for bringing home 2 cats, one of which an adult, but he had written a note for the adoption group, in case they needed it because he owns our house - he wrote that I had permission to bring home 1 cat, or 2 if they were "extraordinary".  He met them and I asked if he was mad, he said "No they're perfect.  And they certainly qualify as extraordinary" :heart:
