- We didn't name him. He was five years old when we adopted him. I'll have to ask Shawn's aunt why they named him Ace the next time I see her. Skittles
- I like "candy" names, and it seemed to be a good name for such a spaz kitten. Two years later, it still fits him perfectly.Pepsi
- We adopted her at the same time, and it seemed to go with Skittles. I like Coke better, but Coke didn't strike me as a good name. Ozzy
- Originally this was Shawn's little sister's cat, and she named him after Ozzy Osbourne because he is solid black and she found him at the side of the road on a Friday the 13th.Little Miss/Smidge
- Originally we were not going to keep any of the kittens Pepsi had—we tried to find homes for them—so we tried not naming them to keep from getting attached to them. (Note: that doesn't work.) So, we just called her and her sister "little miss" interchangeably. Now that she's nearly 11 months old and still weighs just five pounds, we decided that she is "just a smidge."Tubby
- Same deal. We didn't mean for Tubby to be his name, just a placeholder. He was the biggest kitten in the litter, weighing fully an ounce more than the biggest of the others when he was born. "Tubby" stuck, though sometimes we call him Tubbers or Tubs or Idjit (he's not the sharpest pencil in the box).Whitey/Sweet Baboo
- Same deal as with the other kittens. We called him Whitey because he had the most white out of all of them (they were all tuxedos). That has stuck, although he has such a sweet disposition that I also call him Sweet Baboo or just Baboo.
