Thank you for alphabetizing the list...nice touch! Now to make my choices....hmmm.

I have two cats (that I've had for a year) who don't have names. I don't think I'm going to be much help.

Leann Sweeney said...

LOL. Perhaps you can get some ideas, then!

I'd pick Topaz or Onyx.

I asked my cat for help and we emailed our list. I can't wait to read the new book.
I love them!

Also, my name is Amy Chiaramonte, but since my cat is the one with the blog (ha ha ha) I sign in as him.
