Amusing Monday

So back to that parcel which was not for us...... well, Äiti was skyping Mom Trish from the Katnip Lounge to thank her for the stuff she sent over, which included some socks which was a bit of a weird thing to include, especially INSIDE a Starbucks mug. Still, we are all used to this crazy pants woman. 'Hey, I've a pair just like those' said Mom Trish as she spied a bright pink and yellow sock.  'And the green ones....and the blue ones....... '  
It turns out they weren't a gift at all, but Mom Trish had been saving packing space on her trip back from Illinois and stuffed them into the box containing the mug.Now we've claimed the socks for ourselves and are waiting for them to be stuffed full of nip.
But we did ask Äiti to wash them first, hehehehe!

Sneaky Sunday Stealing

We have a rowan tree at the end of the garden, beyond the Catio. It attracts birdies and yesterday was sprouting fieldfares who were stealing the berries.  We wonder if Äiti would consider a little sapling in the Catio itself.......

Sparky Saturday

Inside the parcel that caused such angst yesterday were some shirts, and mugs sent from Mom Trish and Dad Scott from the Katnip Lounge. This was one of the shirts: Äiti is developing a fine wardrobe to inspire the students at work. This is a particularly awesome example.
As long as she keeps us away from the van de Graaff generator, we will be happy!

Frosty Friday

Sampo is awaits the contents of this package with a stinkeye that could freeze us well before the snows come. We refused to believe that the only thing there for us was the box, especially as it had smells of many other kitties on it! Aila is resigned to this but she already has a box that fits her.
Thanks for nothing Katnip Loungers, well, except for a great box. But we will of course forgive you as it has been such a sad time there. Vale, Sylvester, you gorgeous tuxie hero. *sniff*

Tired Thursday

We have reached the equinox, and the temperatures in Finland(N) are dropping. When Äiti gets up the sun is rising and this photo was snapped the other morning as Mirsku was on perimeter patrol.
Tessie has stomped inside to start her sleep - here she was bidding sweet dreams to Ruska. She is now safe and warm inside and unless the temperatures rise, she'll be under the book shelves until spring.
