Our New Kitten – Sokkie


We have a new kitten! She just sort of showed up a couple weeks ago. Since she was a stray we took her in. She’s cute and pretty healthy for a stray. She has little white feet, so we’ve named her “Sokkie” which means something like “little sock” in Dutch. It’s pronounced “soakie”. I also like this name because in Lao, “Sok” means “search for” and she was searching for a home.

Maybe it seems to you like I keep getting new cats and kittens? Well you’re right, but currently we only have one cat. It seems that cats in Laos, and especially kittens, are quite unpredictable. First we had 2 kittens who died. Then we adopted the cat from James’ office who had 2 more kittens. The kittens ran away (or were taken) while we were out-of-town. Then their mother moved back to the office (which is fine because they really need her there to keep the rat population low). We hope Sokkie sticks around longer than our other cats did!



Her tongue fell out while she was sleeping!

  1. Hey Sis. A couple stray cats showed up at my back door a couple days ago and I really wanted to take them in. This just reminded me of it. Kittens are just very endearing like that.

  2. What a cutie! I’m glad she found you!

  3. Good choice of name!

    OH, adorable! Great name 🙂

  6. Yeah, she’s pretty cute. She’s about twice as big now, but her tongue still falls out sometimes. Maybe I’ll post more pics of her.
