Loyal readers, we hope you share our joy at this image. These first little sprigs of nip are true Finnish survivors - they are from a pot which was outside all winter! We were so happy. Stran-veli got straight in. We are not sure the plant survived five minutes with him.
And he was then in a good mood so dealt very effectively with Pekka-Poikka who was having a crazy race around.
For one brief moment Pekka believes he has the upper paw over Stran-veli who just licks his nose in preparation. And raises a paw.
Or two....
Ninja alert!
The retreat begins.
The retreat continues. We think Stran-veli didn't even break into a sweat.

Stran's back feet hardly moved! Shows how seriously he takes Pekka! We don't think Pekka knew what he was in for. We are crazy about his "four feet up" photo. He' s very photogenic even when he is making a hasty retreat! Love to all!

Catnip! You lucky cats! And that crazy Pekka - soon he'll be old enough to understand that Stran will ALWAYS be the leader.
