    Because it seems to be a popular thread-theme on MR to share the great news of new pets, I got a new kitten! Our whole family had been missing having pets in the house this Christmas (our first Christmas without any pets...our dog died this past spring). I was at the pet store and fell in love with a beautiful Himalayan mix from the local shelter...I called my parents and they came over, and decided we needed her :) Was very lucky -- another family had her in their arms while I was waiting for my parents to get there, and were filling out the paperword....then changed their minds at the last minute.

    She's 6 months old, so an older kitten, but just beautiful and very, very sweet.

    Any advice for names? I was thinking Bailey or Shiloh.

    I am so excited -- I have missed having a cat so much! Mine died four years ago.

    Good looking cat!

    I'm going to keep suggesting 'Aileron'. :)

    She looks like trouble, so I suggest the Spanish name Peña. ;)

    What a beautiful cat! It looks like someone's taken a picture of an exotic white-furred breed and then photoshopped a tabby's face on to it :D

    Just FYI, we were at the pet store, but we adopted her from our local humane society that brings animals to adopt to the store every Saturday.

    Thanks for all the great names everyone...we're still thinking and getting to know her!

    So far, I like Aileron (how do you pronounce it though?), Willow, and Sleet...and still thinking about Bailey (as in Irish Cream) :p

    She's lots of fun, and a real lover! Her favorite place to lay so far is on my MBP :p

    Aileron, as in the part of the airplane that assists with the steering.

    Eh-lur-on.

    EY-luh-ron. It's a geeky pilot thing. :)

    EDIT: Looks like iJohnHenry beat me to it!

    How about Kitt in honor of Eartha Kitt who played Catwoman? (she just passed away) I think that would be a cool name. Eartha's not so bad either.

    But I will defer to you on the phonetic value. :D

    our cat's name is Ash (cause it's black) but he gets called piglet more often than that, as it suits his personality.
