Pirouette does not seem to want dad too close :shock:

But I am certain Pirouette will allow him back into her life in a few months :D

In fact, Pirouette did not bother of his presence. He was frightened she could beat him because in nature, as in Lions' family, the male stays far from the kittens. So when the 2 little monsters came to him he was embarrassed : perhaps Pirouette did not want to, etc. and he did not know how to escape.

When he jumped and ran, she was worried because of his quick movements and just watched what's that ? If he would have stayed still, no problem.

So male cats might be agressive to kittens, but not Dark Vador. He is a monster but quite cool.

I think I will do something absolutely mad and insane : I will keep the 2 kittens with me.

Why so mad ? Because since last June, I am jobless. The school has no money, financial troubles, debts, etc. and can't keep me. So, if I don't find another job, I have to come back in France. So ?

BUT

I have to make a passport for Pirouette, to vaccine her, etc. And after the vaccin, wait for 3 months. Then, blood test and find how to send it in a EU lab. Then wait all the agreements for leaving with her.

4-6 months stuck here without job only for my cat, ha ha!

So the kittens ?

Well in such a mess, 1 or 3 is not the problem and if I have to leave, I can bring them with me all the same to France. It will be a pack for a veterinary and the same steps for me.

So in 2 weeks they will be 2 months and I could vaccin them with the Mum.

Next story on my blog : NEVER WITHOUT MY CATS or STUCK IN DUHOK and I will tell all the administrative procedure between Iraq and France's rules in which I am going to struggle. 8-|

SO SORRY YOU HAVE NO MONEY :((

You really will have to go on a diet now ;)

Seriously, cannot you work for the Kurdish government, as your Kurdish is excellent and probably far better than that of many of their other employees?

Your ability to speak several languages would be a asset to any organization :ymhug:

As for the kittens, I am totally NOT surprised that you intend to take them with you :ymhug:

Yep, each problem has its bright face.

Kurdistan is broken it can't pay its own worker.And I don't want to be pushy for having a job in a country which has so troubles. I f I find one, ok, if not, bye.

Now I have to find names for the 2 monsters if I register them in September…

One male and one female kitten

In English I would call them Mork and Mindy - perhaps you remember the show from many many years ago

Better still Darcy and Lizzy (Elizabeth) :x :ymhug: :D

I never watched Mork and Mindy and I am not sure it had been bought by French channels.

I thought Austen but the problem is that they have not at all the personality of Darcy/Lizzie.

The female is shy and reserved like Jane Bennett. The male is friendly and dynamic like Bingley :D But Jane is a common name and some ppl might be offended.

I thought also Agatha & James, as I read all the Agatha Raisin. But James Lacey is a cold fish…

I am still thinking.

Agatha is not a good name for a cat because when you call her you would probably shorten it to Aggie :shock:

I have VERY serious question:

I need someone to translate important documents on Kurdish history that have been written in Russian and Arabic into Kurdish and English :-s

Any suggestions you might have will be welcome :ymhug:

In the novels, Agatha is sometime called Aggie, in fact (but as French I can't say if a name sounds good or ugly. For example, once, I told to an American that the English form of my name is Sandra. But he cried no, Sandra sounds so vulgar and common…


In Arabic, any Kurd from Syria or Iraq can do that. About Russian, some yezidi refugees from Georgia or Armenia might read it.

At first, are you sure it is Arabic and Russian, and not Kurdish written in Sorani and Cyrillic alphabet ? :-D

Sandra is a lovely name, Sharon and Tracy are considered common but never Sandra :shock:

I have been asking around but not found anyone to help share important moments in Kurdish history

Much of it has been written by a wonderful Kurdish gentleman from Western Kurdistan who writes mostly in Arabic :x

The Russian documents I have yet to see but they were written by a Russian lady who married a Kurdish freedom fighter and lived with them in the mountains for many years :ymhug:

In one of the Agatha Raisin's mysteries, someone says that a woman called Agatha changed her name in Ellen because sh was fed up to be called Aggie, and Agatha approved it.

So I wonder how 'Aggie' sounds for people in UK ? Is it an ugly name ?

I think 'Aggie' sounds a bit hard, it also sounds similar to angry :(

But as a name for a cat it is not bad - I can imagine calling 'Aggie' 'Aggie' when you want to get her attention :D
