Viola prepares the trebuchet to fend off the treat-or-treating hoards. What? Doesn’t everyone’s kitten have one of these?

I don’t think I’m big on Halloween. I don’t think I’d like doorbells or noisy trick-or-treaters. Crinkly candy wrappers are fun but that human lady already said we won’t be having any of those around for me to get into, or her either because of something called a ‘diet.’ Not sure how the two are related but she assured me, with wide eyes and much head nodding, they are.

But if I were to participate in Halloween, I’d wear the purr-fect mask. It’s my scary face. Wanna see it?

There! I don’t think we’ll have to worry too much about trick-or-treaters now!

Not that the Niblets would worry about Trick-or-Treaters. Not when they have each other and mama.

Later this week, we’ll begin introducing the Niblets to their first litter box, knowing full well they’d rather eat the litter than use it at first as all kittens tend to do. Don’t worry, we’ll keep a close eye on that. In the meantime, mama Erinn Zuzu still keeps things nice and tidy in that department.

A Mancat Thank You.

In case you might have missed it, the Niblets received their week three Dear Niblet letter last Saturday/Caturday which included photos and videos. Go ahead and Squeee. We did!

Mancat Quint wishes to thank you all who have bought his paintings, especially those purchased recently in his campaign to help with Erinn Zuzu and the Niblets’ upcoming v-e-t expenses. He’s determined to have healthy Niblets ready for adoption before Christmas and one fixed Erinn Zuzu, and because of your generosity, we will accomplish that.

Thank you!

Last Friday, Quint received a special package in the mail.

… who wondered why she didn’t get any art paper. Silly lil’ bean (who just happens to get photos, postcards and poems from her boyfriend Dex All.The.Time!).

Meanwhile, Tessa thinks, “Mmm, I like this smell!”
