Happy Birthday Chili and Sonora

Wishing our Sonora and Chili a very happy guesstimated birthday!

Here is the first post we put up here about them, when we were fostering them:

We're now a foster family for a trio of adorable kittens known as the Pepper Pack.  These three kittens were brought into the PetCo where the rescue group that NTM volunteers for, and just left!  Someone had them in a box, brought them up to a cashier at PetCo, and just turned around and left!  Can you imagine?

Thank goodness for the rescue group The Way Home, because these awesome volunteers didn't hesitate to take them in.  The volunteers had had Tex-Mex for lunch, and the little grey kitten was MEW MEW MEW MEW MEWING and already trying to get out of the kennel at PetCo.  One of the volunteers said, "This one is a hot tamale!" And so that's how the little grey kitten became known as Tamale.  The volunteers used their smart phone to google other Tex-Mexy sounding names for Tamale's sisters, and they came up with Chili Pepper for the lighter tabby and Sonora Pepper for the tiny darker-colored tabby.
We thought we'd share some other names that these kittens could have been named!  (We're happy with Tamale, Chile, and Sonora!)
1. Tabasco
2.  Ancho
3. Poblano
4.  Adobo
5.  Pimento
6. Cayenne
7. Chipotle
8. Salsa
9.  TropiChops
(yes, the volunteers had eaten Pollo Tropical for lunch!)
10. Burrito
11. Habanero
12. Jalapeno
13. Taquito
