Thistle, is very kindly taking care of the raccoon baby that was found in the orchard. When Millet went out to get wood for the fire last night, he discovered three baby raccoons alone in their home in an old apple tree that had fallen. He kept them warm in front of the fire for the night and pulled them by sled to Thistle's house this morning. Her children have grown up and moved away, so she was delighted to help. Any name ideas?

Names can be difficult without knowing the character's personality. That little chap is so cute all tucked up, with his little masked face peeping out.

As it is a baby,and was under an apple tree, maybe one could be called Pip!
