I'm drawing a complete blank on this one... who was it?  There weren't many of us with cars back then... so I'm wracking my brains to remember who did!

May-December 1996!


Major Kitten Search ensued! Deth finds tomcat(?!) kitten, Aimee gets
kitten for B'day... Aimee didn't know what she let herself in for. 

Bitzen is still going strong, a little arthritis in her back legs, but that's not slowing her down much (WHEN she's awake.)
Her daughter Dandy is alive, well and daft as a brush, albeit deaf as a post and meowing VERY LOUDLY in the early morning and whenever she wakes herself up sneezing or falling off things.

I didn't know cats were sposed to live this long!
