To Dexter with love…

My sweetest, most handsome Mancat D, I’m thinking of you extra bunches today. Are you thinking of me? Do you remember last summer when I confessed my love for you?

I was the happiest girl in all the world when you said you loved me back! I thought my heart would burst with joy! I’m your ‘lil bean! Since then, my love, I think of you every day.

You are my tall, cool drink of water. Better even than drinking from this kitchen faucet! (but um, someone’s going to turn this on soon, right??)

Ours is a special romance, a long distance love affair. Sometimes, I think about how far apart we are.

And then I need to ask exactly how far that is and when Dad tells me, I think, Dang! That’s far!

The thought of spending my days snuggling with you makes me want to snub my snuggle toys. Don’t worry. They won’t mind.

Though the miles between us are far, dreaming of you brings us close. I’m sending long distance kisses eastward to you in the wind and hope your day is filled with gifts, happiness, and love. Happy anniversary, sweetheart. My heart belongs to you.

But of course, because they couldn’t meet up in person, Pia and Dexter exchanged gifts. Pia sniffs good whiffies from D’s package while Olivia shoots lazer eyes in the background. “How come she gets a box?” Olivia asked as if she’s never received anything in her whole life.

Pia’s favorite color is purple from way back when she was but a wee kitten. Dexter remembered this and included a special love letter to her printed with violet flowers. She is one happy girl!

Before opening Dexter’s gifts, it was time for playing with the purple crinkly paper. Naturally.

Don’t listen to my mom! I wasn’t playing. I was smoothing!

There’s a nippy mousie, a crinkle ball, and a jingle ball… all the appropriate color. A nippy pillow and kick stick made extra tough so she can’t chew through them to get at the tasty nip inside.

There’s the sweetest, bagged container of “Fleur de Nep;” special nippy flowers to sprinkle wherever she wishes to have sweet dreams of her loving mancat. And a feathery ball that got quite the workout right away. Because, sometimes, that’s required.

But what caught her attention above all others was a framed photo of D. Pia loves gazing at Dexter’s photo, always has, ever since she first saw him over at Cherry City Kitties early last year.

Pia can’t get enough of looking at Dexter. Never has, never will, we think.

She truly feels a connection with that boy, a connection we can only guess is true love. Happy Anniversary, Pia and Dexter. May your purrs and love remain strong and true to one another always.
