PapaCat And I Are Pleased To Announce...

Carl's and Cat's engagement was formalized today!

After a time of uncertainty and challenges, we are pleased to say Carl and Cat have decided that love conquers everything, and they wish to be together.

In a long conversation with them last night, we feel very happy for them both. As you know, we like Carl immensely and it will be an honor to us to call him son. Carl has treated our Cat very carefully, with respect and love, and we could ask for nothing better.

There is no wedding date set as of yet, for there are challenges before them. In July, Cat, Aunty Stela, Carl, Carl's mother (who is a SAINT!), Laki, and Laki's mother (another SAINT!) will be coming here for a month. This will be very much fun, but it will also be a test for Carl and Cat. Carl will have to learn of Catina II and of the businesses, and he is willing to be under under PapaCat's and Nicu's wings to learn about all this.

Carl and Cat have spoken of some wedding plans, and Carl has spoken to Nicu today, who has accepted Carl's request for him to be Carl's best man. Carl has no real uncle or father figure in his life, and since PapaCat will be giving Cat away, he has decided upon Nicu.

Her engagement ring is beautiful. It's very small and delicate, and Carl put it on her left hand today. I'll let Cat post the picture of it that she sent to us. She won't take it off to photograph it and she thinks she has ugly hands. When I saw this picture, I knew it was perfect.

Congratulations to Carl and Cat, and welcome to our family, Carl. We are very proud of these two young ones!

Thank you, Mamma!

We will be a very nice couple, I think. My ring is beautiful and I can not keep my eyes from it.

He is so wonderful!

Thank you all!

I do hope Carl is not given to seasickness. That would be a problem, yes?

With love,
