Good day. I'm under instructions to post the following. Determining whose instructions they are will be left as an exercise for the reader. (And unfortunately, there's one piece of sad news in this.)
The Great Kitty Status Update
Minerva, born 13 March, 1996. Now 17 and just fine if audibly bronchial and semi-deaf.
Mathilda, born 13 March, 1996. Died 11 January, 2013 (very quietly).
Guinevere, born March 1997. Now 16 and will never quit.
Olive and Philibert, March 1999. Now 14 and in remarkably good shape if semi-toothless (ferals) and missing Mama Tildie.
Gracie, March 2007. Now 6 and a pure delight. Maybe a bit overweight. Strongly resembles my wild bunnies.
Remember Dunblane, 13 March, 1996 and plant snowdrops.
