I don't know if this gotcha day fits in this thread, but today is the 20th anniversary of the day I brought my Pallina home.
She was a feral young kitty from another colony, but she strayed from it and arrived to my colony in January 2002. A few days later I brought her home, where she stayed for 16 years, 6 months and 20 days.
I remember that day as it was yesterday, and I miss her so much
