For your entertainment, may I present us brave Finncats in the snow. Mirsku-veli and Rilli-ukko were first out, followed of course by myself. Stran-veli then took a quick sniff of the airs. I remained outside longer than the camera-person which means I deserve far more treats than she does!
And we were delighted to have a very special parcel arrive yesterday. This was from Raisu, who is part of the Muhos gang and Ruska's litter-sister. She now lives in Southern Finland but has not forgotten her brother (Raisu is in the picture). I am looking forward to the yummy treats we were sent.
And I am sure this 'mouse bag' is just for me as it contains my favourite mice! We are very, very grateful for this parcel, sent for ystävänpäivä which is the Finnish friendship day on Monday.

Brrrr! You're having the same kind of cold weather we are here in southeastern Ontario, though it's "mild" by comparison today. You're all very brave indeed!

And what a wonderful gift package for you--so generous!

What fun to see you in action! You all are poofed up against the cold. Poor Aiti, she needs a fur suit.
And to come indoors to such a wonderful surprise--that is ace! We need a friendship day in the US.

You Fincats are soooo tough! Aren't your feetsies cold? You should go warm them in the sauna!

What a great package of goodies!

You are brave cats going out in such cold. When we had snow we kept lifting our feet because it was too cold.
That is a nice bag of mousies.

How absolutely lovely to have a Friendship Day!

OMC, the two orange kitties look like Vinny did before he got sick. They are beautiful against the white snow and all of you are so hardy!

It looks like your weekend is off to a terrific start!

I'm not sure why you guys were so anxious to go out in the snow, but it was fun to watch you!

Friendship day is such a nice idea. And what a sweet gift. The little fabric basket is adorable. We would much rather celebrate Friendship Day than Valentines day which occurs for us on Monday. Keep those feeties warm, dear friends.
