We had just a wee bit of good news last Friday oh, around 4:40 p.m. when Erinn Zuzu ‘Roly Poly’ Niblet went from this:
… to this within four hours:

Go here to read the news as it happened (scroll to the bottom to begin and make your way upward for each update). We also posted the births live on the Colehaus Cats Facebook page but we realize not everyone is on Facebook which is why we cross-posted here too (and sometimes first – yay!).
Erinn Zuzu did great and continues to do great and so are all four of her Niblet kittens. She’s a wonderful, protective and caring mama who trusts us completely when handling her babies. It’s our honor to introduce the four Niblets, in order of birth:
Niblet One is a dark Tortie/Torbie with short fur and a regular tail (Erinn has a pixie bobtail herself). Sex is unknown for all at this time. Nib One weighed in at 5.75 ounces at the 24 hour old mark. Name day is coming soon (Mr. Colehaus has this duty and he’s been in almost non-stop work meetings since Friday evening).
Niblet Two is a dark Tabby with tan/orange undercoloring on it’s face, belly and paws. It’s a short hair sweetheart with a bobtail like mama Erinn. Nib Two is the lightweight of the bunch, over an ounce under Nib One at 4.625 ounces at the 24 hours old mark. We’ll make sure this one gets a prime nipple whenever possible.
Niblet Three is a soft gray Tabby, perhaps a dilute Tabby with similar soft tan/orange undercoloring on face, paws and belly. It also has a cute bobtail like mama Erinn. Nib Three is just under Nib One in weight at 5.625 ounces at the 24 hour old mark.
Niblet Four is a beautiful orange kitten with short fur and a regular tail. Looks like perhaps lighter orange around the face and belly. Nib Four weighed in at 5.5 ounces at the 24 hour old mark.
Thank you all for your good wishes and congrats! We appreciate every word!
