I love Lu

Introducing...


Lumen
 
 
 This is the surprise we picked up last week, the best anniversary present ever! He was free to a good home, I couldn't resist. I got all saucer eyed as soon as I spotted him..I wanted his brother too haha! So sweet and cute.  And he has the prettiest cat eyes. He's a little thing about 2 months old, apparently his dad was a big 1/2 Siamese tomcat who liked to talk. He lets out the tiniest "mew," the sweetest sound.
 
While we were dreaming up names I was checking out one of Luke's astronomy magazines and came across luminous..Lumen! And it's a character on one of our favorite's, Dexter.
 
The Lumen is the SI unit of luminous flux, a measure of the power of light perceived by the human eye. ...
 
 
 
 He sounds like a baby with a bottle when he drinks water and looks like a Maneki-neko when he's trying to groom..so cute and funny!
 
 
 
Sandpaper kisses for my cheeks and hands. He cuddles up next to me in bed and spends equal time playing and napping.  I don't have a ton of experience with little baby kittehs, but I did have a gaggle of kittens born in my dresser drawer as a child haha We only kept one, a  glorious puff of all white fur. When he was a giant man cat I gave him a pale blue kool aide rinse, surprisingly he still adored me. I'm trying to be a good kitty mommy and resist "hand play." The back leg kick move cracks me up but apparently cats are vicious predators with murder in their eyes and a thirst for blood.  I've been watching a lot of "my cat from hell" lately..I don't want him to grow up and hate me! haha A couple of Lu look alike's were getting pretty crazy on there, please don't lunge at my neck when you're hugely fat and beastly.


look at those freakish feet!

I mostly call him Lu, or Sir Catty Whompus. Love his crooked coloring, the black shape on his nose is my favorite. He probably thinks his name is "Hi Lu!"
I love Lu.


Have a lovely week!

Oh wow, here comes trouble! Look at that face! ^..^ So adorable and what a perfect name! I am indulging in a bunch of Space dvds at the moment and adore all the words associated with the sun, stars and light! I am sure with a good mama like you he will grow to be your wee man about the house and not evil! :) Aww, totally cheered a flu ridden girl in Scotland up! haha! :) I hope you guys are having the best weekend!

Ah, too beautiful. I adopted two cats recently (actually a year ago, I have no sense of time). They are the best fun!
