Mandarin Orange Morningstar
Now, before you get all high and mighty telling me that this is not the time to add a kitten to the family, allow me to point out that in these 6 months of craziness the only poor choices I've succumbed to are a ridiculous penchant for bike gear and a little ball of fluffy cuteness. Not bad!
If you're wondering about the name, here's the story:
When we got Chorney, Sasha had only been home for a couple of months and we thought it would be fun to honor her heritage with Chorney's name, so we chose Chornaya, which is Russian for "Blackie".
Mandy Patinkin of Princess Bride fame. If one of the world's greatest fictional swordsmen can be named Mandy, it's more than masculine enough for our cat.
