Hyvää synttäriä, Sampo ja sisarukset

At 12.20 on 21.01.13 Äiti received a text message with the following picture attached:
Little Sampo had entered the world. Six more kittens were born to Kissmollin's Isabelle, Jaava and Jura's sister. This was a big litter and we still tip our tails to #7 who did not make it. But six little bundles of joy did. Äiti was at the nursery as soon as she could throw the kids out of her classes that day. And she was smitten. Here is pikku prinssi, that very day in the palm of her hand.
Mum Isabelle guarded them well.
And Sampo soon became a total poser.
He was incorrigible.
But it was not so simple. A litter of 6 is big, and Isabelle had a lot to do. Little Burre needed hand feeding for a while - the others pushed him away from the milk bar.
This was one of the first family photos.
And then they grew up into mini-ninjas.
So, Metti, Burre, Fannu, Sampo, Sky and Soma we all wish you a very happy first birthday.  Sampo will be singing his Salmon Song loudly tonight for his birthday meal, and we also hear a new song he is learning - The Ballad of the Lonely Mancat Seeking Love.

Happy First Birthday, Sampo! We didn't know your Äiti saw you on your very first day here on Earth! That is quite a bond. We wish you an enormous tin of salmon, and a LadyLove to quell your yodeling...MOL!

Happy Birfday, you Big ManCat, you! Wow--you were sure pale and satiny when you was a leetle guy! But you are a gorgeous dark boy now--the Human would LOVE to get her grabby hands on you!

Happy Birthday, sweetheart, and many happy returns of the day!
Can it be a year already?
You've grown into such a handsome
and loving mancat. God bless you,
love. Tails tipped here, too, in
memory of #7. Extra treats will be
consumed today, in your honour.
