The B litter Roses have bloomed

Well the kittens are almost 4 weeks old and they have been given their official registered names. They will be given "home" names by their new owners but on their registration papers they will officially be Murlyka Bonica and Murlyka Belle Story also known here as Bonnie and Belle. Now you might wonder where the names came from. Certainly not from me - the typist asked me to name my favorite things - but she didn't think that eating, head bunting or sleeping were good names for kittens. She said one of her favorite things are roses - so the kittens are named after some of her favorite roses that start with B.
Bonica is a pink rose bred in France. It's described as delightful and known for its health and constitution. She has at least 10 Bonica roses in her garden and now we have a healthy Bonica kitten. The Rose:

Belle Story is an English Rose named after one of the first nursing sisters to join Britain's Royal Navy in 1864. Besides being a beautiful and rather unique rose, I think the typist liked the nursing connection.
