Mesi certainly has a magic touch: she has her tummy tickled by Äiti and her bottom washed by Pekka. Oh she was purring.

Earlier in the week Äiti picked up a package which had been sent all the way from the USofA, from none other than Mom Trish of the Katnip Lounge. As you can imagine, we were all over the packaging and eager to see the contents. disappointingly, all that was in it for us was some string - no little love lockets from May Ling for Mirsku. But he coped well with the disappointment. No, instead there were two gifts for Äiti. The first was this cloth, entitled 'Aurora Stran'. As Loyal Readers know we sometimes see the northern lights, and the dancing tails of those who are at the Rainbow Bridge. Since Stran left us, we have not seen them, but we know he will be there, tail waving. But this is a permanent reminder for us, and we have put it on the wall at the top of the stairs. And we are very honoured as it was Mom Trish who did this dyeing.
Dad Scott dyed a t-short for Äiti which Seppo is helping to model. Äiti bought t-shirts last year but they are a bit big for her now (she still wears them though as they are comfy and colourful). But this is the perfect fit for her.

This tussle between Uncle Sampo and Mesi went on for ages. Sampo was innocently lying in the hammick, on top of Mesi's tail, and she objected.
And now for some synchronised tail slapping.

Right now things are understandably a little unsettled in perheeni as the New World order takes shape. Äiti was very surprised to see Ruska and Risto together.
When a such a big change occurs in a kitty colony, Äiti knows it is important to make sure that we all feel loved and safe. She is very glad to have next week off work so she can be with us and make sure we are reassured as we try to sort out the hierarchy. I know that, despite being King, I am not destined to be Top Cat. Apparently as a kitten abandoned at a young age, I did not learn proper socialisation. Stran was a colony cat and he knew exactly how to be firm and fair - no one else here has that experience so the future will be, let us say, interesting!
