Well, we thought now Äiti's language course has finished that he would be home more and I could blog everyday. But no, she rolls in late and we are starving as it's hours after our teatime when she finally remembers us. And I have a horrible suspicion she has been out watching birds and NOT bought back any snacks for us. I wouldn't mind if was only something small even - it's not like I want laulujuotsen afterall!
Anyway I have been amusing myself with bouncing on Mirsku-veli; afterall he's jumped on me enough.
Äiti has dared sleep with the bedroom door open so I have taken up my rightful place on the bed. Except I am growled and hissed at by Aila-sisko who is really being a moody girlcat. The trouble is, she has been traumatised by Tuomo-veli (she is hysterical when he pops his head round the door - heaven know how he manages as he should be getting a huge shock from his collar to stop him but he resists all pain).
Aila-sisko's naughty kneecap has healed well. She was licking one part of the wound as some stitches inside were annoying her but ystävämme eläinlääkäri was very happy with her progress. Now she needs 'reintegrating' but this is not going to be easy thanks to her response to Tuomo-veli. So we are now going to try Aila on drugs (amitriptyline). Äiti I know is worried that maybe she has to r-e-h-o-m-e someone and is very upset at this thought as she doesn't know where or how, and really doesn't want to do this (afterall she bought Aila from England, and Tuomo would be very hard to rehome as he is bitey). And even though Aila is a girlcat I would be sorry to see her leave, and also Tuomo as he is great fun to chase - so we want everyone to stay and be happy. This is a great challenge for me as the natural leader of perheni - especially as Aila-sisko wants to beat me up every time I look at her.

Oh, what a dilemma! Mommy uses play to get us to reintegrate. See if you might be so interested in a feather or string toy so that the fighters get distracted and play. Keep the squirt bottle handy, just in case.
Also, switch the bedding around so everybody relearns everyone else's smells. Good Luck! We still have some spats...it's just how we cats do things.

It's going to take us a little time to sort out your names and who is who. We're sorry to hear about the tension. Some of our blogging friends used what they call "calming collars" with pheromones and they have worked well for them.

And yes, we do have short fur but we are great snugglers, which helps us stay warm in the winter!

We know what you mean! We are still having some problems, but not as bad. Instead of Maggie and Maizy, it's Maggie and Chevelle. Chevelle has on a calming collar and is taking amitriptyline and is still attacking, but not nearly as often. We read on someone's blog to put a drop of vanilla on each cats head so they smell alike and see if that helps. We are going to try it out and see if it helps our situation.

So glad Aila's naughty knees are healing well!! Yay!

Good luck, furiends!!!
