There is a Sami legend that the northern lights, or revontulet, are caused by the fires from a fox's tail as it runs through the snow, flicking it all into the air. Now we can show you there is a new legend from our snowcat Stran-veli whose tail fluff will throw up so much snow that the sky will shine.
Äiti wishes that we could see the northern lights more often, and I look forward to the crisp winter nights when I can leave her freezing outside and snuggle up on her lovely warm chair while she gets frostbite, hehehe.

Hmmmm....those Northern Lights look really cool, but I don't know if I would want the really cold weather that comes...no, I think I would much rather be cozy and warm in the house...preferably in a bed under a blanket all nuzzled up to Mom. Yep. I'll just READ about those lights, thank you!! Purrs, Lautrec

#1 says she has only seen the Northern Lights a couple of times and they were truly spectacular!

Don't tell Stran... but I think the legend may be that the lights are caused by bad gases coming out of his backside!

This is unfair; Stran-veli's gases smell like roses. Lewis-veli has a slight problem right now. And we have it on reliable information that Cousin-Bramble Britcat's bottom is incredibly bad smelling!

Wow...we were thinking it might be Stran gas too...perhaps it's Bramble's wafting up North?

We are girl cats, so we know nothing about bad gases. We do so like today's photo, though, and our mom is lame and has never seen the northern lights.
