My guess is that it’s because they’re tiny and murderous.

ETA: the ten-plus years older lady above introduced herself to me by savagely – SAVAGELY, I tell you – attacking my hand while purring thunderously. And somehow never breaking skin.

Like a large version of the Desert Rain Frog.

Probably the nickname given to the litter. Rescues and fosters will do that, to help e everyone keep which kittens are which straight

Within weeks they’ll be running up and down the stairs in the middle of the night.

a lot of foster folks will give names to litters, with each lil one having a name related to the litter name. I’ve seen kitten litters named after the Mythbusters crew, planets, TV shows, and on.

Soon they will all emulate this guy, and start running all over the place…

Litters are given names and the individual kittens related names in hope that adopters will see them as a package. Fosterers are endlessly optimistic. Eventually you just call yourself a rescuer.

I tried showing this video to a friend’s cat. They were completely uninterested. (The cat, not the friend.)

oooo if I ever raise another litter, they’re gonna be the boingboing kittens :slight_smile:
