Introducing Lucie Lou...
We decided to name her Lucie Lou as it was the only name that we could agree on (I had been pulling for Theodora, a solid cross-cultural name, but Cagatay wasn't into it). For the first few days, Lucie Lou was an absolute terror and I had to watch her constantly to keep her out of trouble. By Wednesday, I had reached the end of my rope and was fully ready to find her a new home...which she apparently sensed because she suddenly calmed down and turned into our now-adorable kitten.
Sadly, all of our other kittens died, even our beloved Mustafa when we were in America. The mother has also disappeared and the vet speculated that she was a lot sicker than she seemed, passing on whatever she had to them, destroying their immune systems, before succumbing herself. :(
