. There have been a large number of birthday announcements this past week, and having searched the archives, it seems that we've never had a Birthday Cats thread here in Cat Chat - a place to picture those special kitties celebrating their birthday, Gotcha Day, Foster Fail Day, Adoption Day or any other day that you celebrate as you would a birthday. Having a celebration? Let's see the Guest(s) of Honour! Every kitty deserves his or her own special day - let's see yours! I'll start, since today is a very special day for Lance and Peanut. Twenty-two years ago - on April 5th, 1997 - these two fellows came in as newborns. They've been together ever since, Brothers and best Friends through it all. They're the last two cats from the days of long ago, when I moved from the city to the countryside with my six cats. Happy Birthday, boys; congratulations on beginning your twenty-third year together today - and a very Happy Birthday to every kitty who shows up in this thread as well! .
