Today is Lily and Iris's 17th birthday. They were adorable as kittens (of course!), and spent all of their time curled up or playing together. It was everything I wanted when I got sisters from the same litter.
Then. So cute.
But along the way, Iris decided she much preferred the seven-years-older Max (who crossed the Bridge in 2017 at age 20), and Iris and Lily drifted farther and farther apart. Today, they hate each other, and with Max gone, Iris has transferred her love to Mocha, the feral I adopted three years ago. But they're still my girls, and we'll celebrate this evening with a few special treats!
