Dear Niblets, Week Seven.

Dear Niblets,

Little ones, it’s been an absolute pleasure watching you grow from before your births to miniature cathood. You all are such easy-going, well adjusted mini cats now. Your social skills with visitors make our hearts swell with pride. Even your mama is on her very best behavior and doesn’t mind all the Niblet holding, snuggling and kissing. Is it possible there are better kittens out there? Maybe… but we don’t think so!

This week has been all about learning to purr and chase toys and each other. You’re learning how to jump up and down from higher places. You all gained weight just like you should though we’re still working to get a couple of you to eat more regularly. Russell and Illy, your pouncing skills are just about perfect! Our weeks with you are growing short, Niblets, but there’s still time to learn everything just right.

Over the next three weeks, we’ll be watching to see which toy each of you love the most so when you leave for your forever homes, a tiny bit of foster home can go with you. Robbie, we know you love the plaid Boinks, Viola one of the Squiggle toys. Or is it the squeaky mousie this week? Russell, your favorite seems to be the palm leaf basket and while not technically a toy, we couldn’t imagine you without it. Illy, you love biting, licking and running through the Crinkly Time Tunnel of Fun, a big toy for sure, but you get more enjoyment out of it than anyone else. If your future forever family allows it, you can claim that as your own to take.

And then there’s your mama Erinn Zuzu. We’ve decided she’ll stay here with us through the holidays, through her Spay Day and recovery, and recovery from each of you moving on to your new families. We know she, like us, will be so proud and happy for you! Beyond that, well, we’ll talk about that later.

A million kisses a day between now and then will never be enough, Niblets. We’ve come to love you so much; your cute faces and antics, your fuzzy bellies and tiny toesies, the way you climb into our laps and stare up into our faces as if memorizing every line and smile. Thank you for coming into our lives, little ones. Keep growing strong!

Kisses and Love,
your foster Mom & Dad

  1. You are all learning things so fast and we can see you growing more confident and being so playful. Mum wishes she could kiss their little noses and ears. Viola looks so cute playing with her squiggle toy. Erin Zuzu must be very proud of her offspring.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. The Niblet´s sure grows fast !
    It´s really fun watch them play 🙂
    Wish you all a nice weekend !
    XOXO

  3. Oh, the lucky families who get to adopt you!

  4. Mommy says that she has no idea how you will ever let the Niblets go. She hasn’t spent one second with them and still loves them more and more each time she sees them. Illy with her tongue out really cracks us up. We are so glad to have more time with them. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. BRAVO ON A MOST WONDERFUL AND FULFILLING FOSTER EXPERIENCE. THEY ARE GROWING AND LEARNING
    HUGS MADI AND MOM

  10. Are you going to keep Erin ?
    Do the babies have any homes yet .. not that I can take any of them, was just hoping for them.

  11. I’m both happy and sad thinking about how the babies time with you is coming to an end, and they’ll be off on new adventures in new homes for the holidays. I will miss them lots when that happens.

  12. it is so much fun to see them grow – these posts will be wonderful to look back at and see what a great job you have done 🙂

  13. Awwwww, they’re growing up so quickly and are such cuties!

  14. They are growing fast. It will be so hard to see them go to their new homes.

  15. They are each such a character! It will be hard to see them go!!

  16. Goodness, they are so darn cute. What a good Momma all of you have been. Who ever gets those kittens are very very lucky to get such well adjusted healthy kittens. Love all the pictures. Take care.

  17. The mom says she is preparing herself for the day when the Niblets leave…because she knows she’s gonna be crying her eyes out to see them go. She just loves those Niblets…and so do we. 🙂

  18. So when does the next batch come? Just kidding. Love these babies and hope they’ll find a forever family as loving as her foster family and won’t one day find themselves out in the streets again.

  19. I just want to eat those Niblits RIGHT UP!

  20. this was so lovely it brought tears to my eyes! What an amazing foster you are! xoxo

  21. Such a beautiful little family they are. It’s been a true joy to watch them grow, learn, play, and perfect the art of kittenhood. It will be so bittersweet to see them off to their new furever homes.

  22. They are such a sweet and special group of kitties and we have enjoyed watching them each week. You are a really special foster family and the way you have loved, cared for and cherished them is giving them such a great start in life. We will really miss them and we wish for them the very, very best…that each of them will be in a forever home that loves and cherishes them the way you have.

  23. Another lovely and moving letter to the Niblets. We are happy that they are all doing so well, growing so fast, and getting ready for their own happily ever afters. But we’re also a little sad because we will miss them when they find their forever homes. Thank you for being such wonderful and loving fosters to Erinn Zuzu and the babies. 🙂

  24. Cuteness overload. You’ve helped raise wonderful kittens and should be proud.

  25. Letting go will be hard, but it sounds like you’ve given them a great start in life. They deserve great homes to do you proud..

  26. I love your letters and your sharing the Niblets with us. I feel like I am somehow a part of the whole thing!
