Today is a most wonderful day — Sampson’s birthday! My sweet boy is 8 years old. Time sure does fly!
I remember the day we brought him home. It was a Sunday afternoon, and I told Bobby we needed to go to PetSmart to get some cat litter. While that was true, my intention was really to get another cat. At the time, Delilah was our only kitty, and I felt it was time we added a second. I knew though that if I asked Bobby if we could get another cat, he would have said no.
So off we went to PetSmart’s weekend adoption event, under the guise of getting cat litter. We grabbed the litter we needed, which just so happened to be right beside the cat adoption room. We just HAD to go in and see the kitties… 😉
It didn’t long before we both saw and fell in love with this little black and white kitten who was running all around the adoption room. He didn’t have much control over himself yet, so he kept running into the walls. It was too cute for words. Needless to say, we adopted him and brought him home.
It didn’t take long for Bobby to realize what I had done. Shortly after getting home, he looked at me and said, “You knew we were going to get another cat today, didn’t you?” He had no complaints 🙂
Now, almost 8 years later, Sampson has grown into those ears of his and is one handsome mancat! He never did grow out of his suckling habit though. To this day, he loves to suckle on our necks. So much so that he will even jump from the counters into our arms so he can get some suckles.
He is also a big head-butter. If I’m sitting at the table working on the computer, he is always right there beside me, giving me head butts and rubs. He is the sweetest and gentlest boy with the biggest heart.
