Our Astrid does like herself some bling! When she and the love of her life, Sampson Hall, were married at the BlogPaws Conference last June, Sampy gave her an iridescent lavender collar. Attached were three slide-on charms: an S, a rhinestone heart and an A. At first I thought we might save the collar for special occasions, but as all the kitties wear their collars 24/7, Astrid has not had her collar off since she received it.

A couple of days ago, Astrid received a belated Valentine present from Sampy—two new charms. I wanted to get some photos that she could send to Sampy. Of course, Astrid decided to flaunt her tortitude and refused to look at me.

Though, she persisted in ignoring me, I finally was able to get a great photo of both her original and her new charms.

The new charms are the four-leaf clover and the peridot birthstone. Astrid’s birthday is in August. This is what Sampy wrote to Astrid: “The birthstone signifies my favorite month of the entire year – the month you were born. And the four-leaf clover signifies that you are my good luck charm for life. You must look so beautiful wearing all your bling.”

Astrid is praying that Sampy does think she looks beautiful.

I have linked to Astrid and Sampson’s wedding post (in the first paragraph) in case you missed it.

Oh my! That collar is spectacular, especially with the newest charm additions from Astrid’s beloved Sampy. Astrid, if you weren’t in the mood to face the camera, at least you let your Mom capture that collar to share with all of us!

Love, Angel Sam and Ted

Astrid looks lovely in her lavender collar with new charms! Sampy treats her well! Astrid reminds me of my Tortie neighbors that I fancy who sit on my fence rail and peer through my glass door. Nice to meet you! Mew Mew!

Beverly March 28, 2017 at 12:24 am

I love the colors of a tortie’s fur!!!! (Which is why a tortie lives in our house, too.) Astrid, you look boooootiful in your fancy-smancy collar with the new charms. Every girl likes some new bling once in a while. 🙂

The Menagerie Mom March 28, 2017 at 12:15 am

Oh, how beautiful your collar and charms are, Astrid! Sampson sure is a fine young mancat, and so very thoughtful. And it’s okay if you don’t want to face the camera, Astrid. You’re gorgeous, even the back of your head. Purrs!
