You guys left a lot of great suggestions on what to call the new litter! I’ve opted to go with Joe’s suggestion –
How about the Players, as in “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”?
I love it! (And like Leonore, I hear it as “Playahs” in my head.)
So without further ado, meet The Players!
Yesterday was the day where Maria said “Hmph. You don’t scare me, lady!” and flopped over for a belly rub. The others are still skittish, tending to shy away if I reach for them, but the fact that I had Maria rolling around purring her head off helped a lot. Until yesterday, Orlando was refusing to even come out and let me see him (though I know for sure that when there were no humans in the room, all five of them were out playing), but once I had Maria purring like crazy, Orlando kept circling me, juuuuust out of my reach. I did get hold of him before I left the room and gave him love, but I’m pretty sure that now Maria’s been conquered, the others won’t be far behind.
Ferdinand’s tail stub and…Maria? I think? (When these guys calm down, I am SO going to put collars on them so I can tell them apart in pictures. In person, I don’t have much problem, but it’s harder when looking at pictures!)
