I think one of the computer crashes wiped a bunch of pictures so I can only find one (ONE! *sob*) picture of the boys as fuzzy little babies in October 2003.
And gained a lot of weight. At his heaviest, the Dante-kitteh weighed 18 pounds. We're around 13 pounds now, which is much better, and I get to laugh about his poochy little tummy. It is the cutest.
They get into just about anything I'm doing - working, knitting, reading, etc etc etc. They were the subjects of my most popular blog post for a while - "Die Katzen sind nicht amüsiert" - which expressed why they don't like spam comments.
Also, we are extremely vocal when we want something. Like when I'm having supper and Chaucer-kitteh would like some, too - he sits at the table and meows incessantly.
Happy 10th birthday Chaucer and Dante!!
Happy National Cat Day everyone!
ETA: Plz send treats. Don't tell mommy.
