The farm in Finalnd(E) is guarded by Mosse and Rolle, two big ginger mancats who make sure all is well in the eastern lands. They are mighty mousers and most handsome. Their coats are thick and they stay outside at night - because they want to. They shelter in the straw in the barn. This is Rolle.

So, for what cause was this Great Abandonment ? Well, Äiti went to Ilomantsi, Finland (E) to visit Great Uncle Sampo and Aunt Mesi's nephews and niece. This is about a 6 hour drive, in icky weather but Äiti wated to visit the squablets while at their cutest age. Here they are - 7 weeks old and clearly plotting mischief!
Here is where this wonderful family lives at the Purmelita's cattery. The weather was poor but there is a dairy farm and a lake. It is isolated and beautiful and Äiti hopes to visit again in summer.
And here is what she did come home with: fresh milk, straight from the cows that very morning. It was delicious and much enjoyed.

We have had Great Abandonment. We have only had each other for comfort. Well, except for a diligent cat sitter who was most attentive. But it was not the same as when Äiti is home. Seppo even went ginger for a while, nestling in my tailio.

So, Operation Declutter continues, and Äiti was sorting our Toy Box. This houses the 'overspill' from the toy drawer. I was so pleased to investigate the box, and Mesi had her first look at it since she arrived.
We thank Mommy at Angel Prancer Pie for an idea that Äiti might just go for: 10 minutes a day tidying for 30 days! She still will not be be able to defur the place but she will give it a try.
