Happy Gotcha Day Julie & Carl!

Happy 17 years of love to our Julie and Carl!

Time passes so quickly, it's hard to believe we have been together so long!

17 years ago, Carl and Julie were the youngsters in the family.

Back then there were Lumpy (white and cream) and Minnie Pumpkin (tortie) ruling the roost.
Breakfast with the kitties.

Julie showed off her tail at a young age.
 
Carl plays with a toy.

The Girl and Julie were kittens together.

Julie and Carl had been turned over to the mom's vet hoping she (the vet) would find them a good home.  Having known the mom since she had her first cat, the vet knew they would have a loving home with her.  The vet wanted her to adopt both since they were brother and sister.  Of course, how could anyone choose between the two?  And that is how the mom and The Girl walked into the vet's office with one kitty and left with three.

So Happy Gotcha Day, Julie and Carl!  Our lives would have been a lot less exciting without the two of you!  And we wouldn't change anything, we love you just the way you are!  (Shouldn't that be a song?  MOL)
