It has returned! Today I bathed my furs in the sunlight for the first time this year. It was glorious as you can see.
It was also quite chilly (-13'C still) so I did not stay long.
I inspected tuulikaappi and was delighted to see the evil flap had broken. Äiti will have to think of a new design - she obviously only has British skills of construction and cannot cope with our Finnish winter, hehehe.
It was warm enough for a quick wash - after all, toe fluff maintenance is very important at all times.The ground is very cold on the paws.
And we have been very peaceful - in general. Pekka-poika is a little greedy when it comes to Äiti's lap,we think. Rilli-ukko had a lovely snuggle there for about half an hour, which is allowed, but complete monopolisation by the newcomer is not!
Here you can see how well we are getting on - both waiting politely to empty a food bowl after Rilli-ukko has had his fill.
And Stran-veli is joining us. Äiti now has the challenge of getting the perfect photo with the us three magnificent ginger mancats.

SUN!!! Wonderful sun!! Just how long does it stay set in your Finnish winters? Mommy was looking at her atlas and showed us how far North you are. WOW!

We are thrilled about the vanquished Evil Flap. We are sure you had something to do with it's demise, Punapippuri.

Pekka has a very deep red coloring, just like our CC. You three Gingers will have to pose for a portrait soon.

Sun must be a rare commodity for you Scandanvian-based kitties this time of year!

A new member of your kingdom!!!! And a non-floofy ginger one at that - how exciting! Karin, I wanted to thank you most sincerely for your notes regarding my dad and his passing. I loved your story about the red kite. Having such kind notes from people I have never met in person was such a wonderful gift. It was very comforting during such a hard time. Thank you.

All you orangey kitties are like rays of sunshine yourselves! We love the snow photos and the toe fur cleaning pictures, too!
