Over the weekend, we received a great update on Robbie Niblet who now has the beautiful name of Tallia:
“Glad to hear Erin will stay. She’s a great lady. Also a quick update Robbie (a.k.a. Tallia). She is doing great. After a short period of trying to get her bearings in the new home she quickly took over. She has no fear of telling anyone what she wants and what to do. She still wakes up and is hungry right away. She will run to where we are and announce with all her heart that her tummy is empty. She’s quickly shown where the yummys are and get right down to eating. After that it’s on to her toys and to run a few laps around the downstairs part of the house. After a while she gets tired and runs to anyone to demands a warm lap to curl up in, and that scene repeats all day. Once the lights go out she gets quiet and curls up to sleep the night. She’s a total sweetheart and moves even the toughest hearts when they visit. So, worry not for this nibblet, she’s the queen of the castle here and will be forever.”
Thank you, Tallie’s (Robbie) family! We are so happy to hear she is doing well! We’re sending many good wishes to you for a wonderful new year!

We also received an update on Russell from his forever family, including older sister Gerty:
“It is hard to believe that two weeks have already passed since we welcomed little Russell into our home. He is such a sweet cat; thanks again for all the love you both showed him.
You will be happy to know that Russell and Gerty are getting along extremely well. After the initial meet and greet process, Gerty and Russell have been inseparable. There has been lots and lots of playing, and Russell and Gerty are quickly becoming the buddies we had hoped they would be. With all of the licking and grooming, we think Russell is even bringing out a little bit of Gerty’s mommie instincts.
Their favorite activities so far are wrestling on the bed, often on top of Clair and I, and tag, followed by grooming. Even though Russell has his own food bowl and box, the two of them seem content with sharing. Gerty is even sharing the top perch on her beloved cat tree with Russell–that, we did not expect. In fact, as I write this the two of them are nuzzled up on the top perch taking a little nap together 🙂
Thank you again for all of your efforts with the Nibblets. Happy Holidays!”
Thank you so much, Russell’s forever family, for sharing Russell’s progress. We are thrilled to hear he and Gerty are getting along! Happy Holidays and all the best for 2014 and beyond!

Well, we did it! You, readers, and us, we all helped raise good Niblets. We are convinced that each of them felt all the love you shared and were sending their way. Please take a moment to thank yourselves, give a pat on your back, eat a cookie, tell yourself you are wonderful because you are. We and the Niblets thank you!

In case you missed it, we shared big news last Saturday in our last Dear Niblets letter. You really ought to go read it, but if you’d rather we cut to the chase, mama Erinn Zuzu has changed her name to just Zuzu.
Oh, and both her and the littlest Niblet Viola became Colehaus Cats, permanently! Mom says neither she nor Dad could bear to let them go after spending so much time together (though Mom might have been thinking otherwise last night when Viola insisted on sleeping on her face!).
That brings the number of Colehaus Cats up to… um, a bunch which is one more than we’d prefer but… we’ve always considered the number a lucky one so we’re determined to make it work. Plus, Miss Newton, Olivia and Pia are helping both Zuzu and Viola fit in! We think Pia, in particular, is already enamored with Viola. How could she not be?
