My sincere apologies for the quality of this picture (Äiti does not in fact sleep with a good quality camera by her bed, which is perhaps an error she needs to correct). I am not happy to have such poor quality images on a royal blog, but even I must compromise sometimes. Here is evidence of a wonderful Sunday morning snuggle. I, of course, have the best stretching position and am letting my belly fur breathe, but there is a black furry head enjoying some scritching from Äiti. Yes, it's Ruska! (And the red marks which you can just about imagine on Äiti's hand are Tuomo-veli's teeth marks.) Ruska does jump onto the bed, normally to sniff at Rilli-ukko but today RIlli jumped down and Äiti dared reach out her hand. Her let her tickle him for five minutes, and we are delighted to announce that there was purring. He has now run away and hidden somewhere, but this is good progress. We think that maybe because his beloved human who died was bed-ridden, maybe the bed is a safe place for Ruska to be.
And now Äiti has to make up for this appalling image by getting some good shots of us, or I will sulk.

Heh Heh Heh.... #1 learned some time ago that it was VITAL to keep her good camera by the bed!

Sunday morning snuggles are the BEST!

LOL...I agree, your blog is the loyal blog. But your paparazzi can't make it. You might have to reduced how much you pay her....may be a few kiss should be enough till she can get back to a high quality : )

Tell your mom not to worry, ours doesn't keep a camera by the bed, either, and she doesn't even have a cell phone to use as back-up.

Awwww, poor Ruska! We're glad he allowed the petting for a few minutes--and purred too!

Morning snuggles AND toe hawks!? Bonus day, indeed!
