That crackling sound – – 2013 © Colehaus Cats

I keep listening for the sound of babies but all I pick up is this weird crackling sound, almost like it’s something coming from over my shoulder. It sounds somewhat familiar but I just can’t put my paw on it…

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Niblets are growing! One has already hit the 7 ounce mark and two others aren’t far behind. Niblet Two is gaining. He/She will catch up soon, we’re certain!

Erinn Zuzu is so attentive. She monitors our every movement around her babies and already knows the routine. Breakfast and pets from Dad, cage cleaning and bedding change by Mom with morning news shows in the background, afternoon weigh-ins and Dr. Phil, storytime with Mom, late afternoon extended naps with intermittent photo sessions followed by Law & Order reruns over dinner and more time with Dad all before lights out and bed.

Tomorrow, Niblet names! Sort of…
