Kitty

I loved all the suggestions you guys gave me for kitty names yesterday. It's funny that so many of you recommended we start it with 'lady' or 'miss' because I kinda have an obsession with animals having titles (I once had a dog named Mr. Farley). I mean, the main art piece hanging above our t.v. is a lynx dressed up as a general.

We're all animals: General Lynx

I always said that if we ever got a male cat we'd name him President Theodore Roosevelt III. I know that's kind of silly (and their actually is a man who's named that), but there's something sort of important sounding about it which I like. Too bad male cats can be a pain. We opted for the lady which is making my important title thing impossible! I don't really like 'queen' and 'lady' or 'miss' don't sound nearly as powerful as 'president' or 'general'. My friend recommended 'governess' which also reminded me of Fraulein Maria from The Sound of Music! But still, none of those match President Rosie. Oh wait! President Rosie III. That may take some sweet talkin' to get Jake to allow that because he's pretty dead set on Monster, but I think I could sneak it in as one of her many nicknames. :)

President Rosie?! I totally approve, that kitty is is such a little fluff muffin I can't even take the cuteness! Not to mention how cute you look too Starr! I so missed your blog!

Jenni said...

Great outfit! I adore the dress. I really like the idea of your kitten being president, so President Rosie is a name I approve wholeheartedly. :D

OH OH OH OH OH I am so very in love with your dress!!!!!!!! I love the shots of you with your new sweet kitten too. Cute name hehe.

Ollie Otson said...

You always find the most beautiful places to take photos. It's so green! I miss the South. =[

That dress is adorable, too. You and the kitten match so well!

avalonne said...

Hey Starr! Your post made me smile, because it's so adorable and that kitty is so cuteeee! Love all the names you came up with :) I love striped dresses, something so elegant about the lines and silhouette, you look like such a lady. I think the kitty needs a miniature boater hat :)

moonshinejunkyard said...

i can't believe you are already taking kitty along on photo shoots, what a fabulous idea! i wish any of my cats were sweet and calm enough to come with me places. she is seriously breathtaking, and so are you! maybe when she gets a little bigger you can call her fraulein. i just know nicknames are going to abound so it doesn't even matter what you settle on. my cat is daphne, but we call her beanie or bip.

Amanda said...

Oh my goodness Starr, it is so funny that your going to name your kitty that! My beloved sewing machine Theodore, is actually named after him too. How silly. I have a weird thing of naming my important inanimate objects (computer, sewing machine, etc.)with either very foreign names or very important names. Or both!

Nico said...

wow, i loveee your dress! and your kitty is the cutest!

pretty pretty photos :)

M. said...

the kitten is so adorable.

Clare said...

Okay, that kitty is painfully cute. Please include her in every post from now on.

And I love the southern country vibe you've got going on in this outfit!

amanda said...

My cat is named Franklin Roosevelt! We call him Frankie, Rosie sounds wrong for a boy..
She is suuuper cute! You could always go with Duchess..? :)

megan.tme said...

Beautiful photo spread!! Your dress and wedges are amazing. That kitten is the most beautiful thing ever. We have a very pretty calico and we had a hard time whittling down names for her. How about Beezus? Lady Beezus I guess..

Aya Smith said...

your kitten is so adorable, I have two cats and I just adore them I think its sweet you taking on the kitty with allergies and all , if it becomes a problem invest in a couple of bottles of Zyertec, the price has come way down and you can buy it over the counter and it covers pet allergies!

The dress is amazing, and it looks great with wedges.

I can't get over how perfect that dress is! And I am dying for a hat like that.

Rose said...

ohh, i gasped when I saw your adorable little kitty! I would call her Gypsey :) reminds me of when my cat was a kitten.

Your dress looks amazing on you! Great find.

You look stunning in these pictures! What a beautiful dress. And President Rosie III is, of course, adorable. I was just thinking the other day that if we adopted two more cats (or dogs) I would name them Hercule and Jane, after the Agatha Christie characters. I love the idea of naming a kitten or puppy Hercule:)

That dress is so beautiful! I don't think we have any Antique Malls here in the Netherlands or in germany for that matter...I visited one in Michigan last year and LOVED it!
Your kitten is so adorable :)

Trishna said...

You look so mod and sort of like a yummie cotton candy at the same time. Didn't know it was possible but clearly you did it.
