New kitten Kepler! Welcome home!      Saturday, April 28, 2007 - 10:28 AM

Last Thursday we adopted an 8 week old kitten from lied animal shelter.  We went back today to pick him up.  He is so adorable.  He has a lot of spunk but understandably he is wary of his new surroundings. We decided to name him Kepler after Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), German observational scientist, mathematician and astronomer who was destined to bring about the acceptance of the heliocentric concept.  That is, he believed the sun rather than the earth was the center of the planetary system.  He discovered that the earth and planets travel about the sun in elliptical orbits.  His primary contributions to were that he gave us three fundamental laws of planetary motion. He also did important work in optics and geometry.  Anyway,  cool guy, cool name, cool cat.  It all fits perfectly!  LOL
