Mancats, Shmancats!

In case you missed it, we posted a Dear Niblets letter on Saturday which included a first YouTube video of Erinn Zuzu and the Niblets.

Nine day old Illy, Viola, Robbie and Russel Niblet are growing so fast (See daily weight chart here)! Following our trusty “Guide to Raising Healthy Kittens” printout, by one week, each should weigh between four and seven ounces. Ha! They were seven ounces by day four (except Viola who wishes to follow the rules). By this time next week, either they’ll waddling out of their nursing box or running for your local city council.

And Erinn Zuzu. Best mama in the world. She loves her Niblet babies but sometimes a girl needs some me time!

In this house, girl cats rule and are just as brave!

Well, at least I am. My sisters are big chickens!

  1. Tessa you are very brave as all lady cats are – are the man cats just having a nap? Erinn Zuzu your little family is a credit to you.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx


  3. Tessa you would win GOLD in the Olympics! Oh Erinn we can’t wait to see more of those Niblets!!

  4. Tessa, you could teach others how to walk the balance beam! You are so talented. Erinn, you are doing such a fabulous job with the Niblets. You sure found the right house to raise them in. We love all the pictures!

  5. those photos are just the best!

  6. Tessa, you are indeed brave. The lady-cats at our house like to sit and walk on the railing on the upper deck. It is about 25 feet above ground level. No problem…none of us has ever fallen off. Lady-cats have exceptional balance as you have shown. That’s why girl gymnasts do balance beam and boys don’t.

  7. Tessa, you are very brave but maybe the mencats are busy hunting?
