They’ve been my babies since November 2018 (both 15 months old then):
Twin brothers / litter mates Sunny (left) and Charlie (right).
He was named Horst at the shelter, but I soon rechristened him Teddy.
Alas, we were destined to be together for less than a year (June 2017 – April 2018).
My first feline trio: Gypsy (R.I.P. 2008), Holly (R.I.P. 2016), and Tiger (R.I.P. 2012).
