We were on the catio all day yesterday. And Äiti swears she shut it overnight so was very surprised when we went out after breakfast........ And for some reason now there's extra security on the tuulikaappi door.
Anyway, we were worshipping the Finnish sunshine. And Mirsku-veli voluntarily crossed the skyway again. He was tarting unashamedly on the decking as you can see. He says this was exercise and important stretches. Here he tilts his head back - there is perhaps some stretching involved.
And he then moves back again.
And so he has to clean up the sweat he has worked up.
And then of course he has to relax. Only Mirsku-veli can achieve this pose.
Stran-veli is not so impressed - he knows he is the workout king. And he'll practice a bit more....tomorrow....maybe....
Actually he is looking very thoughtful. He has been busy keeping peace in the kingdom, chasing those of us who try to assert ourselves over the others a bit too much. Äiti is so proud of him, especially as after every chase or lengthy stare of correction, he comes to her for a reassuring tickle and head rub. We think he looks after her too!

MOL... Your explanation " Mirsku was tarting unashamedly on the decking ", or " Only Mirsku-veli can achieve this pose " That's so funny ! ..Ha..Ha
And my mom is dying to kiss him.

Stran might have to work hard now, otherwise Mirsku might become A King of Finland Skyway : )

Have a great day guys !

You both are very hard workers....tarting is a hard job and only I, King of Tarting, could really appreciate the effort that has gone into that. And work up a sweat? You betcha!! The final pose is just what the doctor ordered, right? And as for the job of keeping the peace...that is an honorable job that very few can actually do...proof, no one in our house is capable of doing this job. We hail you!! Bravo, bravo!! Enjoy the sun and the catio! We had lots of it, but now the rain has come and it is cooler..mom is sick so we are snuggling in with her today....mmmmmm. Purrs, Lautrec and the others.

Poor Stran, his work never seems to be done. We don't think any of you should exert yourselves too much - ease into it. You've had a long, cold winter, you don't need to get overheated in the newly found sunpuddles!

Oh, you have our mom considering a tummy contest - we'll let you know if she comes up with anything!

Mirksu was certainly stretching his enormous cute muscle! Cuz he turned on the megawatt cute when he exposed his vast abdominal region.

John sends a paws up to Stran. Cat Cop and Chief Comforter is tough work.

Stran you have your work cut out there and it is hard work for sure. I love that cheeky tummy shot. Have a peaceful day on your catio. Hugs GJ x
