A new addition to the family
We picked up a new kitten today, an orange and white male we have christened Wallace, in keeping with our literary naming tradition. Our other cat, who is not taking to the new addition particularly well, is named Eliot, after Thomas Stearns. Wallace is named after Wallace Stevens or Wallace Stegner--take your pick. When we told Monkey, she asked if he was named after the Wallace and Gromit character, which would also work, as far as I'm concerned.
One thing for certain--he is definitely not named after former Alabama Governor George Wallace.
