Dear Niblets – Six Months Old.

Dear Niblets,

Today, you baby Niblets are six months old and we know you are just as adorable now as you were on that sunny autumn afternoon when you came into the world.

We were pretty excited to welcome you then as we are in knowing you all have great homes now. Keep being good kitties and make your mama Zuzu proud.

Viola, you continue to amaze us with your ability to make friends. We are so proud of you, brave girl, for jumping in to snuggle with almost everyone in the house while not fearing the vacuum cleaner one bit. And you know how much vacuuming is always going on around here!

We’re very pleased with your effort to spend the nights outside of mom and dad’s bedroom so they can sleep. We’re certain that loud purr of yours will only become more endearing the older you get. But not at 2:21 in the morning. Nor at 3:10. Ditto for 4 a.m. when you’re most apt to add licking mom’s face. Must be working on returning those million kisses, huh?

Your leaping skills are far beyond your months, we’re certain. Those long cheetah legs are like springs!

And even though this is a special day, we going to remind you again that the countertops are off limits. You don’t see your mama up there. Follow her lead, Viola.

So you’re becoming more independent and noticing more things around the house. No, the ceiling fan isn’t something to aspire to jump onto. Neither is the bedroom chandelier though count us impressed that you gave careful thought to this.

Thank you for not being terribly interested in darting out open doors (that in or out, in or out bedroom door game will come naturally, we’re sure). Thank you for getting a handle on that early bitey habit.

And thank you, Viola, for just being you. We love you, sweetie!

  1. Six months already! We laughed at Viola re: the ceiling fan — Nicki has given ours careful consideration too, at various times. :-p

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. We can’t believe the Niblets are 6 months old already – it just doesn’t seem possible time is going by so fast. Thanks for those baby pictures of her – she is such a sweetie.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. Gosh how time flies. 6 months already? Happy half birthday Niblets. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Aaawwww, love this post.

  5. So precious, we haven’t been around in some time, thanks for the great photos. Would love to see you stop by every now and then! Have a great weekend!

  6. Viola, so many humans and fur people have followed you and your Mom since before you even entered the world. You are a very lucky kitty to be able to grow up with your Mom and all the kitties there. We are so thrilled to be part of your life. Just remember, learning goes on always so if you forget about staying off the counters one day, tell your humans that you’ll remember on another day. 🙂

  7. Viola you sure have grown into a beautiful young happy cat. WE love that! WE hope too the other families who adopted your brothers and sisters will share updated photos so we can all share in their new lives too.

  8. Happy birthday to all the Niblings!

  9. Wow, it’s been 6 months? We’re sure all the Niblets have grown into special kitties just like Viola. Happy Birthday to them all!

  11. OMC ! are they 6 month´s old aready ??!!

    XOXO

  12. Happy birthday Niblets! I love the picture of all of them together where the little orange one is looking at his siblings tail. The look on his face says what the heck is this?? Did he have a a Manx bottom like his Mommy?

    • The orange Niblet is Russell and no, he didn’t have a bobtail but a nice long ginger tail like long-tailed ginger boys do. But had he been a bob, we would have been tempted to keep him for our own! (Said as if we need even MORE gingers.)

  13. Happy 6 Months to all the Niblets! Viola is a good example of why I’ve never adopted another kitten since my first one, a male Siamese. They are way too active and mischievous for me 🙂

  14. Happy 6 month old celebration day Viola! You continue to blossom into an even more amazing cat every day (oh dear on waking up Mom and Dad with those loud purrs though). And happy celebration to all of your amazing siblings too!

  15. Viola, you sound like quite the adventuresome girl! Happy 6 mos!

  16. Happy 6th month Purrday, Niblets! We can’t believe it’s gone by so quickly. Keep purring, Viola! 🙂

  17. Already, where did the time go …

    Happy Birthday Cuties!!!! I am so happy all you little Niblets found their loving forever homes. I hope to see pics of the others. Viola you are such a sweetheart!!

  19. Happy six months girlie! Uh, Faraday wants to know more about this chandelier of which you speak. He’s been known to swing from the rafters himself….

  20. Viola, one of these days we wanna see your invisible wings…you love being up high so you MUST have some. Happy SIX whole months here, all you Niblets!

  21. Six months….already? Viola sounds like she’s taking after Danger Cat already!

  22. Parabéns, querida Viola! Você está apenas começando as suas aventuras, com certeza em algum momento você vai chegar as alturas, talvez escalando uma cortina hehehehe

  23. We cannot believe that six months has already passed since The Niblets came into the world. We wish we could see all of them now, but are happy that we at least have Viola to follow as she grows up. She’s always been our mom’s favorite. Happy Birthday beautiful, Viola. Hope you got some extra great treats and some new toys today. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  24. Wow! Six months? Happy birthday, sweet Niblets. It is such a joy to watch watch Viola grow up, and we are confident that the other Niblets are happy and well-loved, too!

  25. How time flies when you’re having fun!xx Speedy

  26. Happy Birthday, Sweetie

  27. Oh Viola, what an absolute sweetheart you are! What a great post. Happy 6 month Birthday!
