The kitten's name has been picked!
      #1624127 - 01/09/15 01:44 PM (50.193.144.241)

Thank you all for the efforts on helping us name our kitten.
It has been more arduous than expected.

His name is JUMBIE!

Sadly, nobody here on TTOL suggested it!

(I have printed out a copy of the entire competition thread, so no funny business trying to edit an old post!)

I'll still be awarding the four painkillers to somebody, we'll just have to figure out another way to do it.

Our top names were: Jumbie, Tiki, Coki, Bomba, PurrSir, and Poppet.

He is a real purr-box and a snuggler. I am so happy he likes to snuggle, because Foxy is absolutely not a snuggler. Every night he spends an hour or two crashed on my chest while we're watching TV.

Foxy has just about taken him under her wing now. Last time I let him loose from the nursery she threw a front paw over his back, pulled him in, and started grooming him. I think she's starting to believe he is her kitten, which I was REALLY hoping for.

Here are some pictures of the little man.

Look at the size of those feet!
He's gonna be huge! I'm told between 15 and 18 pounds.
Bigger than Foxy. I love big kittehs!

Missed the original thread so this may have been answered already, but is that a Maine Coon? Looks a lot like my daughters cat and they do get big. We love that cat. Enjoy!

Jumbie is a Ragamuffin, as is Foxy.
We got them both from the same breeder and they are related, though they look different from each other. Foxy is Jumbie's great Aunt, if I understand their blood-line correctly.

They look a lot like Maine Coon cats, and grow to about the same size.

Ragamuffin cats don't chirp and chatter like a Main Coon.

Main Coons are wonderful cats. We almost got one of them instead of Jumbie, but finally decided to wait it out. We're glad we did. He's a little love, and he and Foxy are getting along great!

I love those little pink toe pads!

Jumbie is a great name. We wanted USVI names (Francis, Gibney, Maho, etc) for our two Siamese kittens but our son overruled us.
