Wednesday, all the Niblets went off for their first round of shots and a good looking-over. Everyone is in exceptional health and shape and now with first round shots done and sporting microchips, they are good to go. Robbie will be leaving us tomorrow. Russell will with us for one more week so both of his forever parents can share introductions into his Portland home with a new big sister.
But during their vet exam, didn’t you know there had to be a hiccup somewhere? It would seem that sometimes, just sometimes, bobtail and manx kittens can throw curve balls. Or not.
Yes. We said it before and will undoubtedly say it again. As foster parents, we completely, totally, utterly fail at sexing kittens. And we did it again, this time with the company of friends even. It happens, or so we’ve been told. Yes, we all got Robbie wrong.
Robbie is a girl.
A very, very healthy little girl, not the boy we believed. Which makes him, er, her rather, even more endearing to us, and better still, to her forever family who look forward to adopting her just the same. She, who will always remain Robbie to us, who isn’t afraid of the vacuum cleaner, who boldly rushes open doors (that will have to be unlearned and pronto in our opinion!), who throws herself onto every toy with everything she’s got and then some and yet who lies on laps and calmly gazes up into people’s faces as if memorizing every feature, our tough, brave Robbie is just the coolest girl kitten ever!
So with everything in tip-top shape – correct tip-top shape, tomorrow Robbie begins her new adventure with her loving forever family who has been patiently waiting for their sweet little one to grow a bit more.
Remembering how small these Niblets were just 9 weeks ago, let’s take a look back at our time together with Robbie.
Before there was Robbie, there was Niblet number three.
We learned that Robbie’s a little comic with an endearing ability of making funny faces.
With the biggest, roundest eyes of all the Niblets, Robbie was first at so many things including mastering the cat half meatloaf pose.
The one to always greet us each morning, Robbie quickly became the Ambassador of Cute.
Here we can see how beautiful Robbie is becoming. She’ll be winning hearts over in no time with that look on her face, the look that says, “Might I be yours, please?” Sorry world. She’s taken!
Join us in wishing Robbie the very best in her new life and raise a toast to the first Niblet adventure beyond. Keep requesting your million kisses each day, little girl. You deserve that and more. Be good, play hard and love harder. You are going to a great home!
