This morning we nearly had an escapee. Mirsku-veli spotted an unclosed door, leading to an unclosed door at the front of the house. Äiti was outside plugging in the car heater (which she forgot to do last night so she was being forgetful already then). She turned round and saw Fatboy on the doorstep. He was cheerfully going to go exploring but got scooped up and propelled through two rapidly opened doors back into the warm.
He admits he's glad he is back inside but it will not stop him trying to open doors and exploring.
And when he's not being so active, he can just sprawl around letting it all hang out (even when there's nothing left to hang)and he looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.
How does he do it ? Everyone thinks he looks gorgeous and he gets away with far too much (which I usually get the blame for).
No one would fight with this mighty paw.
That's my favourite mouse there, and no one stands a chance!
Hang on....how did Harris-veli do that?!!?!
By the way, some of you asked how Äiti got the pictures of Risto yesterday.....well she threw with one hand and held the camera with the other. Also, please note that Risto isn't that clever - he catches about 1 in 6 treats. What you did not see was the hungry gathering beneath him waiting for his failures, hehehe.

We thought Mirksu would need double french doors to get outside! hee hee. Thank Cod Aiti spotted his break for freedom...he would perish in about 33 seconds without sustanance.

hmmmmmm, perhaps Harris has magical mind control powers!

Mirsku is just like Binga - she gets away with so much and nokitty can figure out how she does it.

Wow, Mr. Harris is VERY brave to take that mouse from Mr. Mirsku! And Mr. Mirsku is very brave (well, we think dumb, but we're just girlcats) to try to escape. My mom had the door open today taking pictures of the snow. I never try to run outside, but she also never leaves the door open long enough to test me. I got closer to the open door than I ever have, but then I saw a WALL of snow - I didn't want any part of that! I'll leave that to my Finn cat friends.

Your friend, Zoe

Hahha, this gave me a good giggle :)

Catching one in six treats is pretty good. Mum tried it with us but we just let them bounce on the floor.
Whenever we think of you lovely kitties outside in your bitterly cold weather it makes us so scared! We know the old saying that says a cat hates a closed door . But that very door keeps the house warm and comfortable. Save the outside adventures for summer, dear loves.
