Holding Out.

We have a confession to make. We’ve been holding something back… just temporary, mind you. Until we knew that all would be okay. Looks like things are going swimmingly.

Meet our temporary boarder, Winter, who will be staying with us for just a couple of weeks to fine tune her social skills and learn important Colehaus Cats secrets like proper pounce and attack of furry mice, clear vocalization to get immediate kisses and correct usage of shrimp versus salad forks for those all important upcoming state dinners. With how beautiful she is, surely everyone will want to come meet her.

Winter is a sweet, blue-eyed girl born just two days before the Niblets. She arrived at Colehaus just last Saturday and after a few cautious hours, is in love with our kitten room. She is spoken for, plays and eats well, and mama Erinn Zuzu has taken her under her wing which we think is incredibly sweet, especially given Niblet Robbie’s adoption the past weekend and Niblet Russell’s upcoming adoption next weekend. Honestly, Erinn Zuzu has been a perfect mama and hostess.

After Saturday, we’ll be down two Niblets, plus one. We don’t think anyone will notice, except maybe us and you. So because Erinn has taken to Winter so well, we’re making this sweet baby an honorary Niblet.

  4. How lovely to see Erinn Zuzu take to kitten Winter straight off – she must be a lovely natured lady cat. Winter is such a cutie, her fur is very pretty and we are delighted to hear that she already has a home to go.

  5. Aw, hello Winter. We think it’s sweet that she’ll be an honorary Niblet. She is beautiful.

  6. Honorary Niblet is purrfect, especially since she is so close in age to the others. And what a pretty kitty. Lisbeth’s mom adopted our abandoned Astrid when they were all in foster care, which is why we ended up adopting the two of them. They were the very best friends when they were youngsters but now don’t get along at all, unfortunately. Please keep showing us this Niblets as much as possible until they all have been adopted because we are going to miss them so much. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
