Tummy Thursday

Who said the packing tape toys are indestructible ? They are not Mirsku-proof (very little is).
Äiti likes crosswords. They are comfortable, apparently.
And Mirsku enjoys the reclining garden chair. Which Äiti cannot now move to recline in!

Watery Wednesday

As it has been so warm (apparently the warmest heat wave for 50 years here) we have had access to water on the catio. Mesi investigates the watering can - which is not for us.
Jura plays with a ball in  a tray of water.
And Seppo does the same - he likes playing with water and getting his hobbit paws wet.
And here Äiti has watered the strawberries in the hanging baskets. Mesi and I enjoy the drips!

Truthful Tuesday

Äiti here. As the very wise Sparkle pointed out yesterday, perhaps the interpretation of the compatibility diagram which our very own Punapippuri, King Kitty Cat of Finland (North) offered yesterday was a little biased and negative interaction initiation was crucial.....
I have therefore provided this little chart for perheemme. It can be enlarged by clicking. And it shows in green the negative stuff that mancats start, in red that girlcats start.  
The dynamic is changing a little as Seppo calms down, and Sampo is getting more hormonal.  But one little mancat is undoubtedly a bit of a stirrer.

Mighty Mancat Monday

A mere bag cannot stop me from getting to my treats.
Move that unhelpful thumb of yours Äiti.
Who needs thumbs!
Maybe a helping hand is nice occasionally! I love freeze dried chicken.
Now some of you more Loyal Readers may have noticed I have a suspicion of girlcats. Well, this is because I think they are harder to get along with; they are not as relaxed as us mancats and tend to swipe out at us when we have done nothing wrong. This is not a mere prejudice or anecdote. I have total, concrete, scientific proof of this now, and this is in no way biased as it does not come from perheeni and was independently researched in a very respected establishment in the USA. What better source of information than from Prof MomKat from the Katnip Lounge ? She presented this data on the blog about how all the horde (as she calls them) interact. I decided to analyse the data. A red cross indicates a hostile interaction with a GIRLCAT. A green dash represents a hostile interaction between mancats. See many green dashes ? Nope! See many red crosses ? Yes - I rest my case.
And Mirsku might like to beware and check out to see what his girlfriend MayLing is like with the others! I wouldn't want to meet her on a dark night........

Snouty Sunday with added Squee

In the sunshine, Äiti thought Seppo's nose looked iridescent but this did not quite come across in the photos.
Now she thinks it looks more like the compound eye of an insect.
Seppo does not approve of that image - there are no flies on him!
Nor whiskers.
And yesterday Äiti performed her duties as kitten photographer at the Elwood Cattery.  Two little burmese girl kittens - related in some way to our bunch of ninjas - delighted her and are no doubt causing squees all over the innerwebs now. This red girl appears to have an extra front paw.
And this tortie is a stunner.
Both already have homes. We are safe! Just as well since Mesi is a pawful.
