Born on Friday the 13th!...
(Hoorn - The Netherlands)
My 2 kittens were born on February the 13th. I thought it was rather cool!
I was delighted to hear that the 2 of them were available… as it was not the case at first: at birth the breeder thought she had 2 little boys and someone else had already shown interest! But here they are : Kiko, such a sweet little girl, and Pépin, a big huggy boy!
About the meaning of their names :
Kiko = “Ki” or “Chi”, stands for Universel Energy like in Reiki/Tai Chi… en “Ko” just means child in Japanese… all in all, it just fit her!!
Pépin = is a very old French name really (I think the last Human Pépin was born in the 50´s). In French, it also means “Pit” like the one you´d find in an apple.
At first, we just talked about 1 Siamese cat… but you know how women are?! The truth is we already had 2 other cats: an elderly of 18 years old (Penny) and a 9 years old girl (Kayak) we rescued from a holiday in Belgium. I had reasons to believe the welcoming would not be very warm and I thought they wouldn´t feel so lost if they were the 2 of them. Of course, things are just fine now but Kayak had a hard time accepting them!
Kiko & Pépin are 6 months old now. They are lovely, sweet, busy, curious, huggy, present… and we just love them!
