So, overnight we have had the solstice, and the longest hours of darkness are now passed. This is a very important even here in Finland (N) and we make sure we celebrate by sleeping through it. We had a request to show some of our snow - this was taken a couple of days ago. Mirsku and Ruska are a blur as there's a chase going on.
And we have some news that has made us do happy dances in the snow: our Loyal Reader who was Vilperi's servant has welcomed two senior mancats into his home. Vilperi can never be replaced but we look forward to a long and happy occupancy for these two rehomed cats in Raahe.

Snow has fallen and it is all wintry and wondrous outside, as well as chilly! So there has been some cozying up going on. The burmese frequently share body heat.
And Mirsku and Ruska also cuddle up. This cat tree is amazing - it is the first one Äiti bought here in Finland, over 6 years ago, and the nest bowl is an absolute favourite place. And here it is supporting over 11kg of mighty mancat, all of which is very indignant that the camera is out.

Today's the day we jump for joy as Äiti's holiday starts. Seppo is showing his appreciation- and a whole lot more.

We finally got to try out a toy that Äiti bought simply months ago . And when I say 'we', well, more like Little Princess Buttercup pushed her way to the front and tore right into it.
Äiti has been pondering more 'catification' for Risto Puoli-häntä. He and Roosa stay in one area, and on occasion some of the rest of us have been known to chase them. Now Äiti has extended the hiding shelf and added a new scratching/climbing post.
