8 months turned into almost 3 years in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Now in Oregon (U.S.), but still following all things Ukraine.

Too cute! He's such a pretty smoky color. Names? hmmm...we are bad at naming pets. Our cats are named Obi Wan (General Kenobi) and Vader...
Actually, your cats' names were the first things I thought of when beginning the Great Name Hunt. I always liked them :)
Smoky? ("Дымок" in Russian)
That's a good idea... if I could pronounce the ы sound!
>We've named him кит, which means whale in Russian.or cat("кіт") in Ukrainian :)
It's the perfect name then, because he's seriously part whale and part cat. Thanks for the translation!
Cute kitty!! I was just going to say- the words for "whale" and "cat" in Ukrainian are very close (I see someone beat me to it, though). I also like the Ukrainian word for kitten: "kotik". So cute sounding!
Sometimes I call him kotik, even though he hardly looks like one anymore :) You have a cat too, don't you?
