Back in 2014 (!), we had a litter of kittens we named after classic rockers, including these two guys.

Thunderclap Newman (left) and Jethro Tull.

They ended up going to live in Oregon with Bonnie and Marc – you can read their Going Home story here – and I got an update from Bonnie on how they’re doing today!

It’s been five years since Jethro Tull and Thunderclap Newman made their way from Crooked Acres to our home in Salem, Oregon. They were so little and so brave.

The Bama Boys remain as bonded as ever… sleeping, playing and bathing together.

Jethro says: Sometimes you need alone time and sometimes you need to be with your friends.

TC is quite the intellectual, loving our books. And while he is often our undercover cat or snuggled up with Jethro, he has a major bromance going with Paz. TC, often camera shy, loves the other cats and is a most majestic House Panther.

We love our gentle giants and are so happy they chose us! 💕😻💕

Don’t you just love seeing those boys five years later? So happy and so loved. I love it!

(Thank you so much, Bonnie!)

Gabrielle was talking and talking to me, and then I switched from camera to video and she wouldn’t say a thing. Brat.

Sheriff Mama (Kara) is relaxing, but on guard in case one of those whippersnappers think they’re gonna come up and join her. (Lucky for them, they know better.)
