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!

Thursday Treachery

Loyal readers, this is not how it might look. I was simply trying to make sure a certain nekkid did not intrude on my enjoyment of the SAD lamp.
Yes, I did need to use a little paw power.
But Seppo is looking overly innocent and pathetic in this photo.   Pöh.

Pekka is resting up, keeping his feet in fine fettle.
So they will be ready to catch the owner of these toesies......
