Many of you may recall that when Simba first got his town license last year, he was awarded the license number 007. When Audrey came to live here, she got her license and her number was 013. So only Simba had the special "00" number.
Now we have had to renew the licenses and our new tags arrived today: kitties, Simba is 008 and Audrey is 009! So we will be able to do super duper secret spy stuff together!! And it looks like a promotion for Simba!
Edited to add: Sparkle asked "Are there really that few kitties in the town where you live, to only have a three-digit license, and you two in the single digits?" Well, the answer is that we think that since the registering of cats only started last year, most of the people with indoor-only cats are not registering them. It is pretty surprising, though.
Regarding not being 007 any more, we also thought we would keep our numbers from year to year. But the new tags have 2012 on them, and it looks like they are given out in the order people come to register their pets for the year. 007 was James Bond, but there were other "00" agents with special licenses to kill (mousies?).
Oliver and Elliot, see you soon!
Oh, and could you go and leave some purrs for Fin's Mom Meg? She fell down and hurted her head and has a black eye. We bet she would appreciate a visit.
