Dearest Niblets,

Today, this is the happiest day and yet hardest letter to write. Today, one of you begins a new life with the one of the best forever families ever. Weeks ago, you charmed everyone with your sweet personality and already, they love you very much. They have waited so patiently for you to grow big and strong and now, it’s time. You couldn’t have found a better home to become a part of and we know you’re going to have a fabulous forever. Sadly, we’ve given you the last of our million kisses and we’ll always remember our time together. Be good, Niblet Robbie. You’ve made us and your mama so proud.

Russell, your time with us is short. Your forever family is busy preparing for you and in a week, you’ll be leaving too. Until then, may you find all the sun puddles your room can squeeze in.

Miss Illy, you and your sister Viola are still with us too. And what a charmer you are, Illy. You are confident, proud, spunky and mischievous, sometimes all at the same time. We love watching you race around pouncing on top of the Time Tunnel of Crinkly Fun, often when someone else is inside it. Anything that makes crinkly sounds, you are in love with. And that purring! And your love of laps! So much adorable wrapped up in a single package.

We love how you snuggle with Viola as if you know she is your little sister and you like having someone to take care of. And you’re learning that while the vacuum cleaner isn’t anything to be terribly afraid of, those noisy school buses outside won’t be tolerated especially if you’re sleeping on the window sill when they come speeding up and down the street. Just don’t get us started on how beautiful your Tortoise Shell coloring is coming in. You are going to grow into one of those true beauties that we know others will soon see.

Viola, perhaps always to be the littlest Niblet. That’s perfectly fine with us because we know how hard you play every chance you get. You must burn twice the energy most kittens do at your age so it’s good you eat so well. We see a bit of brother sister Robbie in your round eyes and high forehead and we see a lot of your mama in there too. Did we tell everyone that you have the tiniest patch of orange right between your ears that we call your Mama’s Kiss? Because that’s what that looks like, a little delicate kiss mark so you won’t forget your orange mama. We’ll talk about that later though, after you’ve grown up a little more.

With misty eyes, we part ways with you, sweet Robbie. Happy holidays to you and your forever family! It’s time to turn the page and begin a new chapter.
