Name that kitty and binder covers

Actually there are 2 kitties. They look almost identical and they are huge! I only have a picture of one who is currently named Franky. The other one, Sunny has been residing under my bed since Sunday night. He comes out at night or when nobody is around. As soon as I open my door he's right back under the bed speedy quick. Poor thing is traumatized. Franky is very lovey and will lay on his back and let you rub his tummy. He likes me the most so far because I give him the most attention. His eyes are not that icky red color. They are a beautiful blue. Why are pet eyes all creepy in pictures? Anyways...we have yet to come up with names for the new additions to the family, so I'm open to suggestions if you have any ideas.
I went to the scrapbook store while I was in town yesterday to get stuff to make binder covers for each of the young women. I love the spa colors mixed with chocolate brown, so even though I had no design plan I couldn't go wrong with those colors. The pattern paper is Autumn Leaves and the cardstock is bazzill, of course. For you local girls...Scrapbooks Etc is expanding their store AGAIN! So exciting! It was under construction while I was there. So neat to see it in progress. Such an awesome place!
Here is the design I came up with. Simple clean lines. I hope the girls will like them. Going to finish them up and give them to them on Sunday.
Off to bed...my night with the clicker (remote). I like to watch a show in it's entirety. Mark on the other hand likes to watch bits and pieces of 3 shows at the same time to avoid seeing any commercials. Makes me nuts! Love him to pieces, but seriously crazy!

Oh what a cute kitty. He looks almost like one of ours who's name is Big Boy. Don't ask me why we named him that *smile* have no idea.

Take care,
Love, .

Ok, my aunt had a cat which was colored like this one, and he was named Turtle. (She thought he looked like he had a shell on his back).

That led to Anna Marie naming her latest turtle "Cat."

I love those colors together too!

Love the binder covers, beautiful colors! How about Copper for a cute kitten name? Oh, the remote thing, it must be a man thing, my husband is the same way, drives me nuts too! Have a great day! Amy =)

Well, I like the name Franky. I have no good kitty name ideas for you. I really just wanted to tell you I LOVE the folder covers. What do they say in the lower right hand corner?

Briana said...

Awww, cute kitty! What about Salt and Pepper. That's at least what their colors remind of of.

Love the paper and ribbon you used on those binder covers!

The binders are wonderful...I love the colors! Wow...2 kitties...the other one will adjust soon I'm sure. It's fun to think of names that go with each other when you have 2...I think if I had 2 little ones, I'd call them Pip and Pop...

My husband is exactly the same way! Drives me crazy too. Must be a Man thing. Love the colors of the binder too.

The clicker thing is one of those "random Y chromosome" things...my DH is the same and I seriously hate it!

Andi said...

Name them "Rock" and "Roll"!!!

Love the pretty colors in the things you got at the scrapbook store. You're so creative Jolene. The girls will adore their binder covers.

The kitty is so cute...wish we could have one but my daughter is allegric. What about Mr.Kitty.

Kassie said...

My DH always complains about not being able to find anything worth watching and my response? "You never stay on a show/channel long enough to know whether it's worth watching!" Can't stand to watch TV with him!
Cute Binders, fun colors!

Oh how fun!! I love the binders! What a neat idea! What will the girls be using the binders for? Personal Progress?? So fun to get new kittys!! My kitty is an outdoor cat. He's been such a good mouser for us, but I feel bad when it hasn't been above freezing here in I don't know how long, but I blame it all on my husband. No cat in the house for him. Oh well, Lucky has his nice cozy bed on the porch and 2 meals a day, plus all the mice and rats he can catch!!! I hope your kittys adjust to their new home soon. I like their names! Why do they need new ones?? *scratching my head*

Pam said...

He is a cutie! He looks like a Mocha or a Cocoa to me! The binders are gorgeous! Love the papers! Poor Sunny, hope he comes around soon!

Jacquie said...

Cute kitties, I had a friend who named her 2 cats "Sam & Ella".

A crazy play on words but it was fun.

Had same hubby troubles till we got tivo and he tapes everything and zips over commercials. I like the Idea Briana had of salt and pepper since you collect the shakers...

Should have been a vet in Denver said...

Cats' eyes shine in the dark due to the presence of a light-reflecting surface called the tapetum lucidum located behind the retina.

The tapetum lucidum reflects any light that is not absorbed as light passes through the retina of the eye giving the nocturnal animal a second chance to see at night.

Did you really want to know? ; )

and confession...I watch TV the same way. Drives everyone crazy.
