Tormented Tortoise Tuesday

Loyal readers, we happily share our kingdom with any living thing. We will ignore, play with or eat them. Jaava and Jura, henceforth given the accolade 'ninja' (for obvious reasons, and it's the same in Finnish as English) are joining in with this and happily chase bugs. Jaava-ninja yesterday spent half an hour chasing Tessie-kilpikonna, only Tessie does not move much so Jaava did all the running.
Tessie-kilpikonna did not mind - if anyone gets too close, she hisses and they run away.
But Jaava still came back.
Jaava pawed her shell, and that doesn't hurt her. Stran-veli was supervising of course.
Her approaches were relentless and well-angled.
And of course she played around Stran-veli too.

We think a kangaroo jumped by at some point.
Or was it a cheetah ?
Or just a girlcat kitten ?
And loyal readers, we have a winner for our 'who is on the catio competition'. There was only one winner as Tuomo-veli and Harris-veli are hard to tell apart from photos. Their characters of course couldn't be more different1 But, our winner is (fanfare and drumroll please), Riffa! So, Riffa, whom we believe is here in Finland (I am swelling my tail with patriotic pride), please can you leave your email address and financial things will be arranged.

I think Jaava could not make out exactly what Tessie was! But it looked like she had a lot of fun trying to figure it out!

Riffa said...

Oh,yes indeed, I nowadays live in Finland. I am so happy that K9tenerife is going to get the money because they really deserve and need every penny they can get... Thank you so much!

My email is: triffeli.k@gmail.com.
How wonderful pictures of Jaava! She's a real photo model for a cat! Truly lovely! And so is Jura of course, too!

With love

Riffa (with boy cat Oliver and aunt)

Fuzzy Tales said...

That "kangaroo" shot is priceless, we love that one, especially, though they're all terrific. My, she's a wild a child! :-)

Oh, but poor Tessie! We do feel rather sorry for her, wonder what she thinks of all of this. LOL.

I think those kittens are broken - their legs don't go in the proper directions!

What fun the little one had jumping, stalking and generally having a great time. I loved the action shots. Congratulations to Riffa and I am so glad it will be helping a good cause.. Hugs GJ xx

Kari said...

Congratulations Riffa! Good job!

It does look like a kangaroo has jumped by! How hilarious! These photos are great but poor Tessie! Those little ones are relentless! But the wise and wonderful Stran will keep things in check.
The kitties look like they are now fully at home. What a wonderful family.

Great pics, AGAIN!

The arse-end-up shot is PRICELESS! Just the thing to embarass her with when she's old enough to date. Jaava is certainly crazypants, even Maui is in awe of her impossible moves!
We wonder if kittens experience a different sort of gravity from the rest of us. Or lack thereof.


The pictures are wonderful and we especially love the 'kangaroo' picture!


Cara n Crew said...

Yow! Jaava-ninja sure has the moves! You have your paws full indeed with the youngsters, Punapippuri!
