His name will be Captain Jack Sparrow - haven't settled on the nickname - DH likes Captain, I like Jack or Sparrow. I did an informal poll a few months ago and a lot of you all liked Sparrow
I think we will go for a show alter vs a pet quality. Depends on what her prices are for show alter
I keep trying to hint to DH that Charlie needs an Oci brother so he has someone that WANTS to play with him - Ling's a little "B" sometimes. And told DH I was gonna put a chocolate-silver ocicat on my Christmas list every year till he lets me get one
The lady at the show didn't have her ocicat there - it was a pet at home - she just mentioned about it not looking like Charlie and was supposed to be the same chocolate spotted color.
That's what I do too - I'm very picky about pedigrees if I'm considering a show cat (especially) - even if its not, nice to know the parents are well-bred
Keep on DH, wear him down, you can do it!! I like the name you chose, of course Jack being my favorite, he was our very loved Sheepie. A family that adopted a kitten named him Jackson and it was shortened to Jack, and they ended up changing the spelling to Jax, so it didn't remind me so much of our loss, but that isn't what reminds me so much of him, everything does, so it is just a process.
I, very much think that Charlie NEEDS a brother, and it will HELP it giving Ling her space, AND knock out a Christmas present, maybe throw in, it is an Anniversary present combined, it seems like that can really get DH's mind to start liking the idea. Start talking about wanting a big expensive vacation or jewelry for your anniversary, and I bet another Oci starts looking much better!!
With family, I don't always get to all the different nooks of this forum. I think I may have missed the poll, so I would vote Captain or Jack, or Cap'n Jack.
I have many names picked for boys should I get them. I want Yensid to be my next boy, (scorcer Mickey's real name in Fantasia was Scorcer Yensid), Disney spelled backwards, but girls names are getting harder, as the kids help, as we have a Disney theme, and there isn't as many girl names I like. It was the same with naming human babies, I could name a boy all day long, but a girl, was so hard.
Keep us posted!!
