The cats remember nearly everything about the Silver Millennium.
Their memories began to return en masse when Usagi remembered she was Serenity, but they’ve agreed to only reveal information when it’s important to do so; Queen Serenity’s last wish was for them to start again, and the cats don’t want to burden the girls too much with their previous lives.
But they remember, and for Luna, that’s a problem.
She doesn’t mean to, but she’s constantly comparing the girls to the versions of themselves that they used to be. Whenever they squabble, or get distracted by frivolous things, or act like the young girls they are, she’s keenly aware of what’s been lost.
This is why she often prefers Ami’s company, as of the five, Ami is most like the Mercury of the Silver Millennium.
Luna takes it particularly hard with Usagi, who is sometimes so very much like Princess Serenity, but just as often is so very much not. Every time Usagi acts “un-Princess-like” it hits Luna all over again. Luna loved the Princess tremendously, and while it’s technically been a thousand years, for Luna it’s only been a few, and she’s never had the opportunity to mourn.
