Claribel is Vladimir’s sister. There were only the two of them –and here is a picture I’ve already included that shows Vladimir and Claribel with their Mum.
But since you can barely see her little tiny self in that picture, here are a couple of others of her as a tiny kitten.
Claribel was born in August of 2009.; I’m not sure why she looks so grey in this picture. It must be the light reflecting off the mass expanses of that sofa.
This picture was taken in December of 2009 –she is about 4 1/2 or 5 months old here.
Claribel is definitely the most limber, flexible, and acrobatic of all the cats.
Cousin is looking at that toy… I think it had been rubbed on catnip.
Above, Claribel cuddles her head into a nice warm Cara tummy. All the kitties like to cuddle with Cara. Fewer of them are keen to cuddle with Milton (the black kitty below). Milton and Claribel are often found together. Here they are looking like a pair of snoozy outlaws: Trouble and Sneaky.
