About the second kitten, he/she is named Catness. That was the guess of Cube and our granddaughter Hope selected the name. Catness is the main character in the HUNGER GAMES and I should have known Hope would be biased. Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. Would you like to see where Mama David spends her time to get away from her demanding kitten Catness? Here she is trying to disguise herself as a chicken:

BREAKING NEWS: (no pun intended)
My Araucauna hens hide their eggs from me. They don't sit on them they just hide them. Guess that is why they are called Easter Egg Chickens. Not only are their eggs green, they make me go on an egg hunt:) Anyway, I found a cache today and have placed them with a few other eggs under June Hen. She accepted them with great excitement and scooped them safely under her wings. Mark your calendar for May 15th as we await another hatching. There are another 17 eggs and your guess will stand. I just hope June doesn't suddenly realize she's been at this too long and give up.
I have since learned that I could have "candled" the eggs and found those two that were okay without having to have broken them. I have been at this 12 years and still learn something new every day. Wish I could go back and do over. Meanwhile June is protecting her new clutch of eggs with a joyful smile.
