Terrifying Thursday

Is it a yawn ? Is it a roar ? Is it a love-sick leviathan ? Or just a plea to change the scratching mat which is getting worn out ?

Weary Wednesday

Nowhere is sacred in the Castle, And Äiti has taken the camera into the bedroom at night. So we cannot sleep in peace! I usually stay at the foot of the bed, for most of the night.
I guard this territory well.
But this does not stop the others sneaking in.
Those with short fur snuggle together. And at this point Äitihas her legs bent at very uncomfortable angles under the cover.
And this was taken on the bed, but in the daytime. Ruska is a great snuggler - but not with humans.

Transposed Tuesday

So, it's a chilly day with frost on the ground and Seppo went outside. 
And I hid under the shelves.
I think I had the right idea! And don't worry, Seppo came in very soon and he did not get too cold. Äiti is very attentive about this, especially in our climate.

Mesi Monday with added Mancat

Mesi certainly has a magic touch: she has  her tummy tickled by Äiti and her bottom washed by Pekka. Oh she was purring.
Pekka did however have a firm eye on her tail, as a toy!
Mesi did not like that so much.
So they whacked paws a little.
And poor Pekka got his paw-pit bitten!
So she of course deserved a belly snorgle.
 Pekka tried the bitey but she kicked out.
 She is indeed Little Princess buttercup, and you may kiss her paw.

Sunny Sunday

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.
We are incredibly grateful for these gifts - and the card that was sent too. Äiti is having a hard time getting used to life after the God Emperor and knowing that she has such amazing pals really helps.
