Sampo is not prepared to share his toesies - but his claws are in good condition.

We managed to boot Äiti off her butt for a short time yesterday, as something rare took place: the sun was visible. She went out at midday and got a photo. Previously it has been behind clouds. Now we do not have 100% darkness on any day of the year but right now our wonderful star only creeps above the horizon for a few hours a day even in this far south of Finland (N).
Now we won't get sun puddles on the catio for another couple of months so instead we have a bright lamp to help. And we make the most of it of course.

Loyal Readers, over the last couple of weeks I have had to do some serious work for Äiti; I have had to nurse her and make sure she does not fall over. I have had, on numerous occasions, to pin her to the sofa. Pekka has assisted. She says this photo kind of shows what she sees when she feels wobbly- which is good because I am still in focus. Priorities!

As I was evicted from my green beddie, I took up the majority of Äiti's! There was plenty of space for my curly bits to breathe and for me to curl my toes. Now for those of you who wish to snorgle, the average waiting time in päivystys (that's A&E or ER here) is about 5 hours on a Saturday as you would find out for yourself.......

Way back when Mom Trish visited, she asked our Artist in Residence Petra Kaminen Mosher to do a commission for Äiti. Well, here it is! May Ling, aka Mothra! Äiti was delighted: this is one of her favourite images of the tortie meezer who woos Mirsku from afar.
So he caught the huge orange butterfly - now he just wonders what to do with it.
So he doesn't wonder for long!
