As most of you know, this wedding has been a long time coming. I thought I would give you all a brief synopsis of the events leading up to the big day.
To start off with, I must meow that falling in love with Cleopatra has been the greatest accomplishment of all of my nine lives. We, of course, have had many ups and downs. (What truly wonderful relationships has not?). Yet, the Babe has stuck by me through all my tactless, self-centered slip-ups. (Not least of which, was a hasty marriage to a cunning rabbit who tricked me into a foolhardy union.)
The beautiful, grey, BSH feline, captured my heart from day one and has been a positive influence on me, ever since. From the first time we met and began this whirlwind courtship to the day we exchanged our meows, it has been a heck of a journey.
If you don’t know the story of how we met, it began through my failed attempt to impress Sassy Cassy Cat. A lovely sandy-furred Persian who piqued my curiosity and eventually became my muse. Every time I think of her, sweetness pours out of me. (To honour that, I dubbed her ‘Sweetness’)
Back to the story, I turned my flirting into overdrive but to no avail. Sassy was engaged to another; Sir Jeffy. (An extremely lucky Tom, in my humble opinion.) She refused to forsake her love and I was left alone once more! Until . . .
Unbeknownst to me, this plucky British Short Hair was observing the interchange between Sassy and myself and found my ways utterly appealing. (Who can blame her, really?)
Once Cleopatra set her sights on me, I was hooked and I’ve never turned back. Each day, my goal is to bring a smile to my lovely girl. But me being me, I have been known to cause a bit of chaos. For instance, a week before the wedding I threw a bit of a wobbly . . .
Needless to meow, this sent shock waves around the world!!!!
I have to admit, I wanted nothing more than to have fun with my pals and forget about the strife I was going through. I was probably being impulsive once again but I was in Las Vegas. Home of many world famous comedians throughout the years. Surely, something would rub off on me?
Sundance had planned a big stag . . . I mean, ‘Book Club Meeting’ for me with a group of my closest furriends, at a snooker club.
I was not going to miss out on a good time!
My best Toms, Basil and Lord Graydon tried to meow some sense into me but would I listen? No! I decided to heed the advice of Sundance. 🙀
And as usual, the Dude had other plans up his sleeve. Trouble always follows the bad boy of Twitter, I should have known better.
He took me away from the stag . . . I mean ‘Book Club Meeting’ and we searched the Vegas strip. But for what, I had no idea?
I MADE HER GIGGLE!!!! Cleopatra does find me amusing!!!! And I had called off the wedding! I’m a nincompoop!
I wondered if I could fix things and get everything back on track? So, after a number of banana phone calls and some high-powered negotiations, I reflected on our whirlwind time together . . .
Then came the BIG DAY! 5 September 2020.
This day will go down in history as the greatest event EVER!
I couldn’t have done it alone so I want to acknowledge everyone who made it so special. From my lovely girl, Cleopatra, to all who have enjoyed our exciting journey.
Thank you all!
All that is left is to get hitched.
I hope I’m able to get through the ceremony without fainting!
Cleopatra is the love of my life and I will never let her down again. I may be a fool sometimes but I know when I’m well off. She captured my heart from day one and now she will be mine forever more.
This is the stuff that dreams are made of . . . It’s the ‘power of love’, for you!
