Wounded Wednesday

Now, I have been told to pick my words carefully as apparently I may be to blame for this whole, erm, incident. Innocent until proven guilty, I say. Pöh. So, on Monday morning I may have really leapt on Veikko who was quietly sleeping. I may have been a bit snarky with him for a while. He may have been bitten a week or so ago. On Monday evening Äiti came home to find Veikko had grown a hump, as shown.
Yes, it was horrendous, and he was not happy. While waiting for  ystävämme eläinlääkäri to call, the feverish nekkid sat in the sauna getting a cuddle. Note he wasn't sick enough to forget how to do the stinkeye. Well, he was whisked off to the clinic and sorted out. He had a humungous abscess which made a very icky mess; apparently some kitty bit him. He felt immediately better having erupted pus all over Äiti, and was very brave about the whole thing. He has also tolerated his bandage, which has a rather cool design on it.

He has been dosed up on painkillers and antibiotics, and was feeling much better the next morning. He also got to sleep in the bedroom with Äiti while everyone else was exiled. Mirsku has volunteered his snuggle services.
And his nekkid buddy has also been providing comfort.
For some reason I have not been invited to join them. Apparently ystävämme eläinlääkäri says that we can blame kevät (spring) for all this biting and snarkiness. I like this idea since it means it is not my fault. Äiti, however, is not convinced.

Tuesday Treat Torment

Last Thursday, Äiti went to Finland(S) to pass my greetings to the sneaky girlcats at When the cat is away. She returned with a gift which Tessa and Kajsa were apparently not intelligent enough to work out. This 'feeder' has treats hidden under the pegs. Aila realised this fast.
And easily removed the pegs..... order to get the treats.
It took approximately a minute. We would like to thank Tessa and Kajsa for their intellectually taxing gift, hehehehe.

Mesi Monday

Every part of the Castle gets inspected by the Felociraptors. Äiti was shocked to see Mesi crouched on the highest bough, luckily under the Catio wire still!

She had climbed up and decided it was a fine perch on which to do her impression of orava.
None of us felt like going up to join her, and as soon as the treat tin rattled she was down safely.

Sunday Squee

Six years ago, at Kissmollin cattery, mother cat Martta made sure my life would never be the same again. Jaava, Jura and siblings Nomi, Annabella and Isabelle popped out into the world. Äiti was powerless.  
The Ninja Butterballs arrived here 12 weeks later. Oh my goodness, it was a shock to the system. I did debate with Äiti that I thought quicker-than-light-travel possible but she said they were fast, but not that fast.  I'm still not convinced.
Now they are a little more chilled - most of the time!
Happy birthday to all the Kissmollin litter !

After all the whapping and assertion this week, Mirsku needs a day to relax.
