Good morning! Please say hello to dear Ernest Plunkett. He looks a lot like his little sister Ellie, with a short black coat and a occasional wispy white hair. The easiest way to tell them apart is by their size -- he weighs a few more ounces and his frame is stockier. His ears are a little flatter, too, but that could be temporary. They're all just a little nervous right now, so once he's feeling a little more confident, they may pop up.
And though he's still a wee bit scared, that doesn't stop him from purring. Just a little scratch on the back of the head will get his motor running.
He's the only boy in this set of four and we'll be meeting his other sister on Monday. Any predictions on what she might look like? Another black baby bear, perhaps? Or a Siamese? That would be fun, we haven't had one of those in a long time. Or an orange? How perfect would that be for the Halloween season? What do you think? What color will she be?
