Negotiating the Catio is tricky right now: there is ice (cold) and snow (wet), little sunshine, and Mesi.

Sampo is today's mancat. He is a total tart when it comes to lap times, but Äiti rarley gets photos as he is so demanding of her thumbs and fingers.

The sun is out, the temperature is creeping above zero, and a mancat's thoughts turn to how to impress. Well, they would have done for Mirsku once, but he is off course safely 'done' (eeeek!) and true to his one love - May Ling of the Katnip Lounge, despite a few adoring comments from Amarula (of Hairballs and Hissyfits).

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.

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.
