Bagira's kittens of the litter K

Our beloved black Bagira delighted us on the 4-th of March with her first litter of four beautiful babies, three boys and one girl .
She delivered her babies into the same litter-box where  two weeks before Afina brought her three babies. Since then they both take care of their "common" babies without dividing  them on "yours" and "mine".

Bagira's babies resemble their parents with  the coat colouring combination of black-grey-white.
And one boy is totally black, like his mom.

To demonstrate our sympathy and solidarity to Ukraine due to the sad event of the Krym annexation which is the motherland of Afina and Bagira,  all her babies are named with different Crimea's places.

So, the black boy has a name Kara-dag what in Crimean-Tatar language means "black mountain"; this is the name of the ancient volcanic mountain in Krym.

The boy with many grey and white stripes and the black along the spine is named Koktebel. This is the name of the valley and the bay at the foot of the Vulcan Kara-dag; in Crimean-Tatar it means "Land of blue hills".

The third boy got a name Krymchak - the meaning is clear and doesn't need any additional explanation. He has very interesting spots of dark and white on his coat, similar to the dark and white spots of the  Krym's history.

And the sweet girl has a wonderful name Kerchana by analogy to the ancient city Kerch, which is located on the coast at the Kerch Strait. 

The white line between her two eyes resembles the strait between the Azov and Black Seas.
