We've been busy on mouse-watch. There's a corner of the catio from which we can see them walking around, and Harris-veli and put on our nicest smiles to try to tempt them into paw's reach. We've not had much success recently. And then of course I am really tired, so here's I am having a stretch of the kneecaps, and getting ready to snooze. All has been well - a few little puddles, a few little growls but generally we have our routine. Ruska is getting more confident but still runs away from Äiti. Rilli-ukko is getting more food than any of us because every time he settles by Äiti she hands him his 'special bowl'. Aila-sisko quite likes it too, but Rilli-ukko has been seen giving her a little paw swipe in order to show that it's HIS bowl. We all have to have our little victories. Except for Risto who sadly has not mastered the Evil Flap yet. He gets stuck outside if he ventures out. Äiti had to replace one Evil Flap because Ruska broke it. In his hurry to get away he charged right into it and broke it. This was most impressive: not even I had managed to do this in my temper when it would not do as I told it and locked me out. Ruska is very strong, and will be a good ally, I think.

Hoping Risto learns the door trap furry soon!

hmmm...if Harris-veli finds a way to tempt the mice into his paws, do let us know the secret! Hope that you and Ruska can get together and defeat the Evil Flap.
