LATIN: vespertīliō
m (genitive vespertilionis); third declension Meaning: 1. a bat (animal)

Interestingly Vesper means "Evening" in latin and is a choice cocktail of James Bond in Casino Royale:

"Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?" "Certainly, monsieur.".... "This drinks my own invention. I'm going to patent it when I can think of a good name." He later names it Vesper.

The latin-bat translation is how I came up with the name for my bat baby Vespertilio. He is 14 weeks +4 days old, and my first very first Sphynx.

This kid's mom is a beautiful tortie born in Siberia and dad's a Canadian - Vesper was the only black solid in the litter.

He seemed to do really well in the car/carrier, then explored around the house with wide eyed enthusiasm and meowed nonstop for a couple hours. When he's not exploring he is hanging right with us purring like mad. He is already the biggest suck!

He went under a chair and I layed on the floor on my back and just looked at him, he came out and sat right on my tummy and fell asleep in a ball. All he wants are cuddles! I know everyone talks about the affectionate nature but it is still blowing me away!

Here are a few pictures of Vesper's first afternoon with his forever family
