      Omgosh how weird is it, that my 3 yr old daughter wanted to name our new bundle of joy “starshine”?! I wanted star lol she was just born July 1st. .. and we got her 3 days ago. Wonder if I should listen to my 3 yr old? Lol

      • Jenny Nazak

        DEFINITELY listen to your 3 year old, Starshine is a perfect name for a grey kitty :-) My baby girl, age 14, is named Starshine <3 According to my research, this cat (that I adopted 14 years ago as an abandoned stray when she weighed about a pound) is a Nebelung, which is a longhaired Russian Blue. Sorry the pic came in sideways LOL.
