"Common Era". Interchangeable with "In the Year of Our Lord", or Anno Domini...
"A.D." for short. Sometimes you see something like "33 B.C.E.", or "Before our
Common Era", which is to say before the time of Christ.

Since Kats have Christmas (it's true! "Night of the Dark Kat"), then I think
you can safely use the same date conventions as in our world.

"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
