Look What Followed Us Home, Can I Keep it?

I though I was long past taking in strays..but look what Doyle found curled up in a laundry basket in the kitchen this morning! The kitten looks to be about 4 months old and was obviously the domestic type who had been dumped in the Park by some stupid Family that thought it would get along on it's own.

Found her just in time, I think....
It was starved, dehydrated and just about bled out by fleas. So Doyle ran to town to the Vets and got the appropriate medications and we began doctoring our new found friend. She seems house trained and very friendly, even let me scrub her up this afternoon.
Of course we will take her in and get her spayed and her shots, she's too weak for anything but soft food and flea medications right now....

She looks to be a long haired cat of some type, her coloring matches "Slippers", the short hair we already have. She is really as emaciated as she looks, and she is mostly bald from chewing at her fleas.

Neat Mask!
In the meantime we need a name for our new feline friend, so if you have any creative ideas, let us know! Nothing cutsey or suggestive....and preferably something not involved with the phrase "Doo Daa".

I have always said the God has a hand in arranging these meetings, a helpless babe of a kitten in need of life saving help, and two people with a love for God's creatures who he knows will open their hearts to this little one. Bless you both for being where you are needed the most, Since he was found in a laundry basket and is ragged in appearance right now, name him/her Rags, you are going to have a loving companion for the remainder of it's life.Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

What a lovely, big eyed girl with a butterfly mask. Both of our cats are saved friends and I appreciate hearing your story -- you are loving hearts to open your arms for a fellow creature. I look forward to seeing you again when you migrate north....and meeting the butterfly. Kelly J.

I would call her Lucky.
