Happy Birthday Sampson
Today is the birthday of the most handsome Sampson (Kitty Cat Chronicles). Those of you who follow us regularly know this romantic and gallant Cat Scout has been Astrid’s boyfriend for two years. She asked to post a special birthday card for him here.
For those of you who don’t know how Astrid and Sampy’s relationship developed, here’s a synopsis from a previous post.
It all began in February with my Match.Cat post when I asked if any male kitties were interested in taking any of my girls to Madi’s Queen of Hearts Dance.
This is what Astrid had to say about herself at the time: “I am the really shy girl among us. I wouldn’t be pawticipating if Mom wasn’t pushing me. Even though I am two and a half years old, I am a very tiny, tortie girl. I keep to myself most of the time and don’t really socialize with my housemates as they like to bully me and make me cry. If I do go to the ball, my date needs to be with a sensitive and quiet, young man-cat.”
In reply, we received this comment from Sampson’s mom, Emily: ”What beautiful ladies! I am sure they will find dates! If they don’t, I have one young bachelor kitty who I think would be perfect for Astrid. He doesn’t know much about this Queen of Heart’s Ball, but I’m sure he would be interested if I mentioned it to him…”
Astrid then received an e-mail from Sampson and accepted his invitation to attend the Dance.
Here’s a slideshow with highlights of their relationship.
It was love at first sight with these two. Sampy’s love and support has done so much to help Astrid gain confidence and stand up for herself (most of the time) against the bullying of fursibs, Misty May and Fiona.
On February 29, just a little more than two years after their first date, Astrid popped the question. She asked the love of her life, Sampy, to marry her. It was rather spur of the moment as Astrid found out just that day about the tradition of ladies being able to ask for the paw of their man in marriage on leap day. And…Sampy said yes. Astrid and Sampy are now engaged.
Tentatively they plan to marry in June at BlogPaws with their flat selves standing in for them.
