Happy Birthday, Animals

A year ago this week, Thwok was born (she’s the little grey thing on the right in the photo — with brother Oscar, nursing on mom Chanel).

And here she is today.

Because we don’t know *exactly* when Archie and Salema were born, but we know for a fact it was late April/early May of 1999, we choose this week to celebrate the birthdays of ALL the Gillespie-Johnson animals.

Happy birthday, animals.

And mom, tomorrow, happy birthday to you.

    Aww, such adorable kitties!
    Bon, I know we talked a bit about our parents recently – my dad died of pancreatic cancer too, by the way. I just peeked at the eulogy excerpt for your mom (I never saw it before). She seems like a great person. I’ll think of you both tomorrow.
