When did my babies get so old? Really, today is only their approximate birthday—I asked their former guardians a few months ago, when I was getting ready to update their microchip registration information—but it’s pretty close. They went home with their first family as kittens in May 2002, and they’ve been with me since December 2007. They celebrated this morning with some new scratching posts, catnip, and canned food . . . but, well . . . I can’t tell if they’re having fun yet . . .
