Hey, it is me… Alex the cat! And I am having a P-A-R-T-Y!!!
Where does time go? It seems like it was just yesterday I was a nervous wreck working up the nerve to ask the sweet, the beautiful and fun Gracie out on… You see, as you may already know, I am an older gentleman. So working up the nerve to ask out this amazing lady was no easy feat for mfortunately my mom convinced me I had nothing to lose by trying, so in a rare moment of clarity I realized she may not be as dumb as she looks so I took her advice. I would lie and so no nip-tinis were involved, but I digress.
To my shock and amazement Gracie said yes! Wow, was I a happy man cat. But I still was nervous. I had no idea on how to act around a pretty lady like her. But since my mom so far didn’t steer me wrong, I listened to her and just was myself. When I say Gracie and I had a magical night, I mean it was AMAZING! I was on cloud nine and over the moon.
Whoever would have thought this old man cat would find love, but I did…. Of course Gracie and I had lots of fun, but everyone knows a successful relationship involves more than simply the good times, and last summer, our relationship was put to the test. Gracie was awesome when I had to have my tail amputated. I was afraid she would think me less of a man cat, but I was wrong. Not my Gracie. She made sure to keep a keen eye on me and helped nurse me back to health. If not for her love, I don’t want to think what would be (oh yeah, my parents also helped).
Then on Valentine’s Day my nervousness returned. I wanted to take our relationship to the next level. I knew my love for Gracie was super strong and our relationship would be lasting. I knew that Gracie was the girl cat for me. So I did what any guy in mad love would do (and fortunately for me and Gracie) I acted quicker on my feelings than my dad did (your loss dad!) and asked Gracie to marry me…
I am sure you know, she said YES!
And now it is time to celebrate our love and our engagement. It is party time!!!!
Gracie and I will be having an engagement party on Monday June 11th! Of course there will be tunie juice cocktails, nip-tinis, a selection of wet and dry food to nibble on (thanks Mr. Chewy! – my favorite place) and music. I may even get my dad to play his drums…
You are all invited! Gracie and I would love it if you could participate in our party by offering a toast to us.
Please email me alex(at)feelingbeachie(dot)com Any toast or message you would like to share with Gracie and me. It can be a toast, marriage advice, or a memory. Gracie and I would love it if you could also send a picture to go with your message, but if you are camera shy, that is cool too. Please make sure to include your blog address so my assistant can easily link up to your message.
I must receive all messages by Friday June 8, 2012 to include in the party post.
