    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!

    Are they recent photos? They look a lot younger than 22. You must share your secret with us. The secret to kitty longevity! Happy birthday lance and peanut, many happy returns. Xx

    Happy Birthday Lance & Peanut, my you both look good for your age. What wonderful lives you must be having. It’s a quarter to midnight here, so I may be a bit late, sorry.

    @MissMiloKitty - Thanks for your (and everyone else's) kind regards. The photos above are just about a year old; here are a couple taken just moments ago, as these two chaps went after their prime rib dinner:


    22bd1.jpg

    22bd2.jpg


    There's no secret, I'm afraid. They get (commercial) canned cat food three or four times daily; they (eleven cats currently) get on well together as a Family, and they're told every day that they're Loved without condition. Beyond not exposing them to loud noises such as televisions and such, they pretty well take care of themselves and of one another. I've had one go just short of thirty years, an handful go on into their mid-twenties, and like Lance and Peanut, have had a dozen or so others cross the twenty year threshold.

    Peanut and Lance thank each and every one here who've offered their happy returns and their kind wishes.
