Kitten Day second post

Okay - we have our new additions. Jaava and Jura are upstairs in the bedroom, behind a firmly shut door. I have not seen them yet but Äiti keeps going in and out. Pekka-poika and I stand near the door daring each other to dash in. Stran-veli has been with them and he came out chuckling. Young Jura saw him and swelled up to 89 times his size and growled and yowled like a huge mancat. Stran just sat watching. Then Jaava hissed at Stran-veli but they did manage a little polite nose sniff. Jaava took the opportunity to head out of the door as soon as she could, but was brought gently back. She seems to know no fear - well, she's a girlcat: need I say more! Stran-veli stayed with them for an hour or so, settled under the bed while the kittens did their kitten things. Äiti is of course very pleased with Stran because he has been the perfect big brother again, even when little Jura declared war and pestilence on him. Äiti has been spending time with us too, and we have had nice food (muikku and some roast beef!). I know it's bribery but I'll humour Äiti for now.
Äiti's note: pictures will follow soon.

Stran is going to be a very good big brother to the little ones. We are looking forward to the pictures.

89 times his size? OMC! These kittens are going to be a pawful for sure. Stran, we salute you!
Johnny is overcome with envy, he LOVES kittens. Do you need another LARGE mancat? He's totally willing!

Stran really is a wonderful Cat, very special. A good brother or perhaps uncle. :-)

The mom had a co-worker with a Ragdoll who was wonderful with her foster kittens -- "uncle" Jasper, we would call him. Very patient and gentle.

This is almost too exciting for us. Gasp.

Stran is so cool. We know he'll make them feel at home.

Aww, we just love Stran! We're glad that his sore paw didn't keep him from his big brotherly ways. King Punapippuri, we hope that if you or Pekka manage to break into the room that you treat the babies with kindness! We're not sure your household could take another free-for-all brawl so soon.

Stran! What an angel! Our wise and wonderful man cat has done it again. Hope he gets lots of extra treats!
What a magnificent start you've made, Aiti! You really must have a way with kitties. For being in your home for such a short time, you and Stran have made great strides. Keep up the good work. We know that the camera or the flash may scare the little ones but.....pictures! Oh, please! We want pictures! Any pictures! Blurry ones gratefully accepted! No heads? No problem! We so want to see the kitties! Lots of love to you.

P.S. Punapippuri, you were the sweetest kitty ever. The photo of you and Stran is so beautiful. We know the new kitties will be adorable but no kitty can be as precious as you.
