My new kitten is here!  
He is so adorable... with these huge ears that he'll probably grow into... but which are responsible for his name.

I was looking at him, and the thought "My what big ears you have!" popped into my head... which of course made me think 'Wolf' which led to 'Lupo'... and since I'd been wanting to name the kitten after a science fiction character, and Jo Lupo from Eureka kicks ass, the kitten became Lupo! Yeah, it's a female character, but... Lupo isn't a feminine name, so... it works... and it's weird which is kind of a family prerequisite for pet names... lol...

Within the spoiler are two low quality pics of Lupo taken with my webcam... in the first one my arm is at a bizarre angle, and the second you can see part of my face, but you can see how tiny Lupo is!

Very cute kitty. Hope that he is as nice a black cat as my Maddie (who is named after a favorite brand of yarn- : D ).

So far, he's very sweet, but of course since he's a kitten he's curious and keeps exploring everywhere... he also seems pretty smart because he'll already respond to his name... if we say Lupo, he'll look over at us... and it's been no more than 4 or 5 hours...

I'm not sure if Maddie really knows her name, but she does come if I meow for her (and she is the only cat of all that I have had who plays fetch which she taught herself). : )

And now his name may change from Lupo to Fargo because he has an obsession with pushing random buttons (walking across and SITTING on my keyboard)... and he keeps getting himself into situations he needs rescuing from (getting his claws stuck in the sheets/blanket and needing me to unstick them... lol) just like Douglas Fargo on Eureka... so I guess I may have been hasty in naming him and it may change by next weekend... lol

Awwww - he is sweet, no matter what you name him. Enjoy him.

Right now he's curled against my side, sleeping and purring... so sweet...

So tiny but sweet. I love his name.
