Foster Updates, Cont’d

Just a brief note about the group of four foster girls who passed through our hands so quickly we never got to blog them! The Soda Pop Girls were after the Mystery Girls, and before the Noisy Girls.

The fourth one is climbing over the top of the others, under the blanket! This was another lively bunch, hard to get a group picture of.

Their names were:

Moxie

Shasta

Fanta

Faygo

As you can see, they had quite distinct and unusual markings. I especially liked Shasta’s question mark!

The names came about because, well – rat girls are fizzy. I’ve been wanting to use soda pop names for a while, but could never come up with the right number of rats to name. Then we got handed these four fizzy girls, and voila!

The Soda Pop girls were very lucky to find a single home that wanted all four of them! They now have beautiful, four-syllable Japanese names that start with K, including Kimono and Katana. I’d have to dig a bit to find the others! Reports from their new mom is that they’re a joy to play with, and very friendly!

Coming Soon:

Marbles, Bailey, and Mia…wait, Mia? Who’s she?

You’re gonna run out of themes soon! May I suggest vegetables, fruits, cars, and antacids?
