A quiet afternoon on the catio usually results in some form of chase. Here a friendly ear bite is the start of a chain reaction.
Tuomo-veli knows exactly what he is doing. Pekka-poika cannot resist the chase and bottom sniff.
They run to the left and back to the right. Pekka leaps and brings Tuomo down.
An excellent rugby tackle with a full body clench.
Tuomo is now on his back and paws punching. This is all just play remember - no fur was permanently ruffled.
Paws up to that pretty Pekka chin.
And Tuomo spins round180' with paws still waving.
But this has attracted the attentions of Stran-veli, who for some reason doesn't like this so much.
He stalks Tuomo-veli. Now this is not looking like play.
Definitely not.
So Stran chases Tuomo - just fast enough to make him rush away but not so fast as to be very serious. Stran is a very dignified senior kittty with lots of fluff but he still leaps around with great agility.
And he catches Tuomo-veli with a swift paw. No claws though - if this was a serious fight the fur would have flown.
Tuomo-veli is in retreat. That's neat paw work from Stran.
Off you get!
And they ran into the house. Stran never broke into a sweat. Äiti thinks he chased Tuomo just because he could. Just to show he's still top kit on the catio.

Sir Stran is surely the Top Cat Cop at your house! We bow to his superiority. Three cheers to Aiti for capturing the action!

MOL..Mr Pekka, Since last Sunday, Now I pretty sure you absolutely love stinky butt's smell. Your mom have an evidence here " Chasing Tuomo's Butt " Ha..Ha..Ha..Poor Tuomo : )

And Mr. Stran, believe it or not you have the same attitude as my daddy " Do it because You could : ) " and He claim he is the top cat in the house as well. Mom said That's insane " Human is a Human " but My dad said he is one kind of the cat because he is LEO and He was born in Cat Year....( Mom think he was talking crap..hee..hee )

Me and my mom love the last photo of Mr Stran.The Act of top cat : )

Well done to Aiti for that camera work! It was a great wrasslin' match between Tuomo-veli and Pekka-poika!

Oh, yes, Stran definitely is top kitty. :-)

Aww, poor Tuomo, just trying to have a bit of fun. Well, we're sure that Stran knows what he's doing, keeping his topcat title in tact.

Wonder why beautiful Stran went for Tuomo instead of the instigator Pekka?
We agree with the Poupounette Gang , it is all action over at your place! We, on the other hand, play with our ratsies, watch our birds, and nap a lot. Oh yes, that is except for Tigger who has made it his lifes work to destroy the very expensive and difficult to replace screening on mums patio. Kisses and hugs to all.
