Äiti had such a lazy day yesterday she didn't take any new photographs. However she says this is not necessary as it is Tuomo-veli's second 'gotcha' day so he gets to feature today. I suppose I can allow this.
Tuomo-veli is a bit of a handful. Truth is, he doesn't really like to be with other cats and wants Äiti all to himself, but now Pekka-poika has arrived he plays and chases like pikku pentu.
He has a vicious set of teeth and has committed the ultimate crimes of biting Äiti, and clawing ystävämme eläinlääkäri when she tried to snorgle his tummy. Every night though he is very sweet as he sleeps next to Äiti's pillow and demands tummy tickles when he or she wakes up. I have more reasonable night time demands and just sleep peacefully by her legs.
We're not sure how old he is - maybe 12 or so - and he is getting more and more distinguished white furs appearing. Tuomo-veli is the one who eats the most and he hogs the food bowls. As a result he is getting a little bit more tubby again. Today he's just yakked up his breakfast - probably because he ate too fast. He is definitely our resident grumpy old man, but we are glad he is here and we're going to get nip cigars later to celebrate his anniversary here.

A very happy Gotcha Day to Tuomo! We think he's very special to have been adopted as a senior (or close to it). We're glad he has finally found a best bud in Pekka - everycat needs a friend.
