Feel Good Friday

The heats have continued so we have been enjoying the sunshine. Äiti provided a little diversion with the retrieval of the Giant Polliwog from its vat of valerian.
 Ruska ensured no other kitty could go close.
Especially as he lay partly comatose on it for many hours.
Now his cinnamon underfurs are very well ventilated.  In fact with the heat we are surprised they are not on fire.

Thursday Tortie Tussle

The heat of the Catio has led to much sunbathing, and participation in polliwogs. Mirsku is of course a main player in this.
This led to a little round of whappy paw with Jaava.
She was clearly feeling feisty as she kicked him in his tummy.
And then got him in a headlock.
 It didn't last - Mirsku boxed her ears and spun round to escape.
Now Äiti asked me to point out that Jaava is looking really red here - she is in fact a lilac tortie but true to girlcat form, nothing is simple for her - like her colours.

Wednesday Miscellany

We cannot compete with many fellow bloggers who are roasting in high temperatures, but for us, it is HOT. We Finncats have helle, the name given to days when the temperature is above 25°C. Mirsku cools off by stealing Tessie's food.
She was not impressed.
And she made sure Veikko moved out of the way when she wanted to get past.
Sampo had been tickling his stomach with grass and was caught mid-yak. Seppo photobombs again.
And we are delighted that the kissanminttu is being pollinated for next year's  crop.
Äiti has been enjoying the sun, lying in the hammock and relaxing. She was provided with a marvellous view. 
Keep cool kitties! Drink plenty and pee lots.

Mesi Monday

Loyal Readers, we currently have The Hots. Now I understand that our outdoor summer hots are not that hot compared to many of you, but for us 29.8°C on the Catio is pretty impressive. Äiti has had to water the garden - in the faint hope she might grow some tomatoes and courgettes. Also, of course, the kissanminttu needs water.  She left one end of the hose in the bucket and sadly I was nowhere around as Mesi poked her nosicle in.
 I am sure those golden eyebrows would have like d a wash, hehehehehe.
