Yesterday's shadow was Aila-sisko. Today she stayed upstairs but most of us spent another hot day on the catio. We like Saturdays: Äiti feeds us, goes back to bed (giving me time to have a snuggle with her feet). Then she polishes the litter trays and cleans the house. We don't like the noisy, red 'sucky thing' because it has eaten many of my favourite mice and some cigars, but it does clean the floor so we can put yet more fur there instead. Then she shops and comes back with lots of food. We are becoming 'Mjau' cats now, and are eating less 'Latz' (Felix in English). This is good because Mjau is full of suomalaista kalaa, and I feel very patriotic eating it. Then Äiti normally collapses to watch tv: she's very lazy but we can sit on her while she falls asleep watching football. And then it's time for our evening meal, and playtime. Today has been very calm and Äiti is so happy. In the last day there's only been one fight - Stran-veli chased Risto again. Stran says he has to 'settle things' but we're not so sure Risto hasn't got the message anyway.
And today Äiti has had a purring black and white shadow. At about 2am she was woken up by a buzzing Rilli who demanded to sleep on her. Yes, readers, the doors are all open right now and perheeni has access everywhere. We are respecting boundaries and the Muhos Gang generally stay undisturbed in their facilities. And we are trying to relax and not get nervous everytime we see a new face. And Rilli is just following Äiti wanting Dreamies and cuddles, and more Dreamies.
I like this peace and quiet in my kingdom. Especially as Äiti noticed I was feeling yucky and puked up some grassy bits, and then she gave me a lovely cuddle to help me feel better (without the others seeing -I have a reputation to preserve!).

Well, eating grassy bits does usually do that to you...

Your Saturday sounds lovely. Ours has been nice too as we have stuck close to #1. Families are great!

Purrs,
The Chans
