Evening exercise and a WINNER!


We had a very dull day yesterday, and were full of energy when Äiti finally reappeared. She openend the catio door and we dashed out, and played even though it was a bit cold and damp. Äiti doesn't know who was more pleased - us for her return, or her for seeing us! Anyway, we played with fishing toys. Mirsku-veli is all paws and claws to kill the mousie. We do apologise but Stran-veli was seeing to some important 'business' in the dirt corner in the background, hehehe.
Mirsku-veli is showing he's as fast as any of us. He is pure mancat muscle.
He will stretch and strain in order to get that mouse.
And he will also wrap himself round anything to help too.
And he is very pleased with his efforts, even if the mousie did escape.
But we want to see him do this.........

And we have a Very Important Announcement. We have just found out, and are very very proud to announce that our very own Stran-veli is a calendar cat. He will be Mr January in the 2012 Marley Fund calendar.
This is the photo which won. We are incredibly happy that a cat from Finland is in the calendar, and are proud to support such a good fund - the Marley Fund works very hard for FLV and FIV cats, and the prevention of these nasty horrible illnesses that have robbed so many of life.

Congratulations, dear Stran! They couldn't have chosen a more handsome and intelligent boy! We are so proud of you! Treats for all in celebration!!

Marvelous photos of Mirsku! We love his beautiful pawsies! The pic where he has his arms wrapped around the chair is do adorable! Such catrisma!
And those little kitties! Their antics are amazing! I still can't put my finger on exactly what they remind me of but mesmerizing they are! Hope your Aiti is easing back into her workload. We are still praying for all the pets caught up in the madness of the riots.
