It is! They're five years old this month.
Since we don't know what day they were born, we consider the whole month their birthday. What we do know is that they are littermates and that some idiot person dumped their tiny, adorable kitten butts at the Virginia Beach SPCA soon after they were born.
We adopted them a little bit later, when they were big enough to not require constant care, in August 2005, when they were two months old.
Who could resist these faces?
Fittingly, June is also Adopt A Shelter Cat Month. I would like nothing better for my boys' birthday than to know that somebody out there gave a homeless cat or dog a second chance at life.
So, please, if you're thinking about sharing your life and home with a whiskerface, adopt!
Three to four million cats and dogs must be euthanized at shelters every year simply because there aren't enough homes for them. Every animal bought from a pet store or a breeder means that a sweet, loving animal at a shelter faces being put down.
Don't be a part of the problem. Adopt!
I'm glad that I did.
Happy birthday month, beebeards!
