the eric update - day 811: a kitty named "truck"?

although she still lacks a proper name beyond "kitty", that doesn't seem to be preventing odin and her from becoming fast friends. yesterday, when we asked him what he wanted to name the cat instead of replying with his typical response of "kitty", he thought for a few moments and said, "truck!" and that's been his consistent response over the weekend.

ragdoll cats can live up to 20 years and i try to imagine him years from now trying to explain to someone special in life why his longtime companion is named "truck". maybe we'll let this one sit with him for a few days and see if he changes his mind again :-)

Hey, I had a dog until I was 19. Mercifully, my parents made her middle name "Good Puppy".

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
