The handsome Cat Scout Sampson from Kitty Cat Chronicles and Astrid are officially a couple.
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…”
They continued to communicate through e-mail after the dance, and Sampson invited Astrid to attend Allie’s St. Patrick’s Day Party at Cat Scouts. She, of course, agreed.
I posted about them a few days later when we participated in Madi’s Spring Fling. You can read about that and see a very handsome photo of Sampson in his Cat Scout uniform by clicking here.
Next came the Quest at Cat Scouts and Sampson’s birthday. Astrid wanted Sampson to do well on the Quest and asked if we could send the traveling Captain America shirt to him to wear under his uniform. She rubbed her furs against the inside of the shirt for luck, and it must have worked. He won one of the challenges.
With Mom Emily and me cheering from the sidelines, they continued to comunicate via e-mail. And then Sampson popped the question and asked Astrid to be his girlfriend. She didn’t hesitate in saying, “yes.” Mom Emily made the three photos for them. Knowing how much Astrid loves flowers, Sampson presented her with three beautiful, spring bouquets when he made his request.
Astrid is such a shy little girl. Having the friendship of Sampson really has been helping to bring her out of her shell. Having him as her boyfriend is sure to boost her confidence even more. I couldn’t be more delighted for both of them. And Mom Emily feels the same. To see Sampson’s post about this, please click here.
