I thought I would highlight one of our cats, Natasha. She is one of three cats that we got back in January of 1999, but she is the only one still with us (we unfortunately lost the other two recently). She doesn't look 17 1/2 - does she?? She still runs around like crazy, jumps, meows, and keeps us company. She never did warm up to the kids very well, but at least she doesn't run away anymore. We got Natasha and her brother, Sergei (named for Sergei Federov of the Red Wings), at the same time.
