Tortietude Tuesday

Negotiating the Catio is tricky right now: there is ice (cold) and snow (wet), little sunshine, and Mesi.
Even as Pekka settles, she is plotting.
 That expression does not look good.
She's on a mission. Having made Pekka work at finding a space, she now insists on moving herself. Shame there's a big patch of cold right in front of her. Hehehe.

Monday's mancat

Sampo is today's mancat. He is a total tart when it comes to lap times, but Äiti rarley gets photos as he is so demanding of her thumbs and fingers.
Also, all sorts of fur and fluff sticks to him so getting a perfect shot is tricky. He doesn't care, he just purrs.

Spring Cleaning Sunday

The sun is out, the temperature is creeping above zero, and a mancat's thoughts turn to how to impress. Well, they would have done for Mirsku once, but he is off course safely 'done' (eeeek!) and true to his one love - May Ling of the Katnip Lounge, despite a few adoring comments from Amarula (of Hairballs and Hissyfits).
So Mirsku laps up the attention, and cleans his paws.
And ensures that his nosicle is also perfect.
Yes indeed, he is now ready for the spring.

Springtime Saturday

Our daylight hours are now longer than the nights, and the sun is shining brightly (sometimes). The birdies are returning and Äiti went out to welcome back the laulujuotsen, our national bird. Now these we would not try to hunt; they are big and noisy.
As you can see, there's still lots of snow and ice, including on the Catio. But when the sun shines brightly, we forget the fact it is still very chilly. 
And the nekkids are determined to find sunpuddles. They do not stay outside long - it is below freezing after all. Äiti gets them inside pretty quickly, to the safety of the heaty pads.
But look who emerged from under the bookshelves; welcome to 2017, Tessie !

Felociraptor Family Photos

Last weekend, Äiti visited some little kittens. Luckily she returned without them. This trio of felociraptor squabs are related to our burmese bunch : Jaava and Jura's nephew is their daddy, and they are at Mesi's breeder's place - a magnificent cattery in Oulu.
They look so sweet and innocent. Just like Mesi did once!
