The menagerie peacefully shares a bit of tuna fish as a special Solstice treat*.
Peace On Earth
* The Winter Solstice
is actually at 02:04 tomorrow, but none of us will be awake then. And yes, it is our "first second" anniversary: on the Winter Solstice, 12/21/2001, we were married in a private civil ceremony by a JP, with Cairo as our only witness. Our public wedding
was 9/23/2002 (we celebrated our "second first" anniversary in September).
[Update: yes, Sam at 14 weeks is roughly the same size as Saffron, who we estimate is 16 years old. They both are about 5.5 lbs. Saffy was the runt of her litter and has always been scrawny.]
