Meet the newest member of our family...

This is our new, yet to be named Kitten. Take the poll, vote on your choice for names...but let me give you some background on the reasons for our choices...
Vlad the Impaler was also known as Dracula. He was the historical figure that inspired the legend of Dracula. Because of Cole's fascination with all things of that nature, he thinks Vlad is a perfect choice. I chose Fox, because of his color. Alec wants Batman, for obvious reasons (that's obviously not going to happen, but I wanted the kids to contribute). I also thought of Kazander. Now, Kazander is a character in a series of books I love. He's the young, handsome, impetuous chief of a tribe of wanderers, with true courage and bravery that are unmatched. After watching our kitten this morning, this name seems to fit best, but we'll see. So take the poll, help us decide.
When we brought him home last night, the first thing we did was introduce him to Cosette, our first cat. The kitten snuggled right up, and seemed to feel safe. Then, after about 15 minutes, Cosette was done...the low threatening growls started. Then Cosette stalked off in a sulk.
This morning, after running around after the kids for awhile, he curled up next to Alec on the couch.
He's really playful, and the kids have really enjoyed using the laser pointer to play with him.
And the second change in our house today...This is Talia's new bed. Her new bedroom set arrived today. We'll see how she adjusts when we put her in it to sleep tonight. I'm really excited about how it all looks put together...when I clear the crib and other dresser out of her room, I'll post pics of the whole new look....

I kinda like Kazander...it also goes well with Cosette. And knowing me, I'd shorten it to Zander because I'm lazy that way!
