We're all a bit exhausterated. Stoopy human politics, late night football (proper football of course - like Iceland played but England didn't, hehehe) and waiting for Äiti to fix our new catio cat tree.......

Yesterday, Loyal Reader Flynn asked if Ruska was really big or just floof. Well, it's hard to tell as he is shy and the only time Äiti can pick him up is when he is sedated for his annual grooming. He is certainly one of the bigger felines in perheeni: maybe Pekka, Aila and Mirsku are more massive. Since his last grooming he has become more confident and Äiti has scritched him more.When the Cat's Away.
By contrast on the fur front, we have Seppo who is wearing some white fuzz. He has a tabby striped tailio under his brown 'fur', and now seems to be going grey on his back and thighs. His muzzle is black but he seems to be getting more colourful as he ages.

As part of the great garden extravaganza, Äiti allowed some testing of this year's kissanminttu. This is growing in pots, seeded from last year's plants. Jura is keeping the leaves close to himself.

For some reason, Äiti was 'in a piss' yesterday. She was also dizzy so her frustration was taken out domestically as she didn't want to drive anywhere. Her victim was this tree. This apple tree, close to the Catio, was killed by myyrä or a mousie who chomped all round the bark at the bottom. We did get revenge on it by catching the villain a couple of years ago.
