I can’t remember the last time the villa and bunkhouse were both empty for a week. I think it’s been years! But we knew it wouldn’t last for long.

We picked up three little scaredy-cats yesterday afternoon who had been driven up on a transport from a rural NC shelter. They’re probably about six weeks old – around 1.5 lbs each – but they look healthy. Two solid blacks, one boy and one girl, and a brown tabby boy.

They are all hissy hiders, but we can tell that it won’t take long before they are peep cats. We were giving them some peep therapy while trying to think of a litter theme name.

As you know, we try to pick something based on what’s going on in the world. We thought of some polar vortex ideas, but it was 50 degrees when we picked them up yesterday, so that seemed like old news. We had several ideas related to bridges and traffic jams.

Ultimately, we decided to throw this one open to the blog readers. We usually come up with the theme and let you guys go for the names. This time, we’ll switch it. So let’s hear some themes and we’ll pick one and finalize names.

Meanwhile, our recent graduates have checked in. Peanut and Pumpkin went home on January 1. They are doing well and it only took Peanut a few days to feel at home. “He enjoys sleeping in all laps and on all beds,” reports his mom, and she joked that “Peanut has come out of his shell.” Great news!

It also didn’t take shy Raemy long to settle in. She and Seamus are now Rosie and Toby and they are happy and loved in their new family.

So let the themes roll in and we’ll let you know what we decide.
