Today you are one week old. Perhaps you should have been called, ‘The Over-Achievers.’ You are all big for your age and that gives us more of you to love. And are those eyes we see beginning to open almost a week early? We weren’t sure what to expect when your mama came into our lives but now, we couldn’t imagine it any other way.
You are roly-poly, wee bundles of fur and baby fluff with your blue eyes ready to open to see the world and your tiny sweet earflaps make us want to nibble them. And so far, you are amazingly, remarkably, thankfully quiet at night. We know that will change. After the four hour online frenzy of your birth just a week ago, we’ve enjoyed this brief week of nighttime silence.
This past week, we gave you names. Someday, your forever families will probably change those but we hope you like what we picked for you for now. Soon, you’ll be able to hear things – your mama’s purring meows, us calling to you, the Ellen show on TV. We look forward to the weeks ahead, watching you become miniature cats and seeing your personalities develop. Thank you for coming into our lives. We are so happy to be a small part of yours.
Grow well, not-so-little Niblets.
Kisses and love,
Your human Mom & Dad
