So I went to the Dollar Store to buy envelopes and came home with a kitten. Someone dumped her off. When I said I was taking her home, the shoppers and the clerk applauded!
She's a sweetie. Very friendly...was trying to get in the store. She was very hungry, but has settled in with a full tummy in her temporary crate. Vet this week and in a couple of weeks...limited freedom. Miss Lily (the resident barn cat) is a bit pissed, but she'll get over it.
I need name ideas. Must end in ie or y. I have a Lily, Murphy, Jakey, Riley and Bonnie. Gone but not forgotten...Maggie and Sophie (cats) and dogs Bailey and Dakota (the outlier).

You could go with Dolly. I also like: Molly, Bertie, Lucy, Shelby, and Poppy. She is going to be beautiful, and I am sure she loves the attention (and food).
THANK YOU for that kindness -- you are a blessing for a kitten who could have ended up badly. We have them around our Dollar Store, too. I actually trapped, spayed/neutered, etc. 8 of them before my bad accident -- many are still here. I can't imagine doing such to such a helpless creature! She's lovely -- a pastel tortie! How about Pinky? That color looks sort of pink in low lighting. She's a lucky puss and God Bless you!!
So.... did you pay them a buck for the cat? Or did they pay you? I would have like to see the applause. That's really nice.
Kitten was free. Extra canned cat food and kitty litter (plus toys of course) were extra.
My daughter suggested Millie...then I would have Millie and Lily.
She may be going to Cincinnati. She's such a sweet, cuddly thing...she would be great as an inside cat and I can't have an inside cat. I'm mildly allergic and my hound would kill her. My daughter is asking the neighbors/friends So, we'll see.
She'll either be a barn/garage cat and a quite spoiled one or a house cat in Ohio.
I will never understand how someone could take a kitten, clearly friendly like that, and dump her. I have a kitten wrapped around my neck as I type who was pushed out of a car. I'm fostering her, and hoping I don't fall any more madly in love. Good on you for taking her. I love the name Dolly, although Millie is very good too.
Lesley because my friend Leslie once named a rescue kitten for me and I love the "ey" spelling and it's one of my favorite names spelled either way.
Panda (well, it ends in "a" like Dakota and because she reminds me a bit of a tree (red) panda)
