A few days after her birthday, Astrid received a goody-filled box in the mail from her inamorato, Sampy from Kitty Cat Chronicles.
He is so thoughtful, sending her a big jar of her favorite treats, Pounce, which we can no longer find in our area. He also sent some great toys, which you can see in the photos. But best of all (included in the card on which he left his paw print in Astrid’s favorite color, purple) was his actual furs imbedded with catnip. Guess which of the birthday gifts Astrid liked best?
According to Sampy, the cheetah ball with the feathers (foreground left) is one of his favorite toys. I do have photos on my iPhone of Astrid playing with hers. Unfortunately, my phone has died, so I will show those to you at another time.
Astrid is standing on the card’s printed message: Because of you, I even smile in my sleep. Among other things, Sampy wrote, “I know this is true because Mom and Dad have told me.” How sweet is that? Sampy said some other lovely things, but Astrid says she prefers not to share these with everybody. Though, if you look closely at the photos, you can easily read the card.
Astrid was thrilled with all her birthday gifts and is sending Sampy more kisses than he can even imagine.
In other news, I am thankful, surprised and delighted that we received the First Right Guesser Award from Sammy (onespoiledcat) yesterday. I only knew the answer first one other time, but figured I was wrong so didn’t guess. I am proud to display Sammy’s newly designed award!

That’s so wonderful to be so admired! I love the captions under the pictures! Enjoy your gifts! Purrs
Several years ago, I started sending furs with my Christmas cards so that my virtual furrends could actually smell me. I thought it was a neat idea. I’m glad that it’s grown and is now something that cats do all the time. Those pics are precious.
Astrid is so pretty. We wish her the very best! ~♡~
That really was super nice and super cool too!

I am so glad that you are enjoying your toys. They were each handpicked by me for special reasons, so it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to know that you like them. I wish I could be there to play with you! You look so beautiful in all of the photos, I could just stare at them all day. I’m sending you sooo many kisses and a side of headbutts and purrs. I’m also sending you lots of love.
Astrid what lovely gifts you have from Sampson. Will we be hearing the sound of wedding bells one day?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
