Saturday Selection

At last, the weekend and we get to snuggle in bed with Äiti for longer. We are all grateful for this, especially Äiti. And we celebrate with a miscellany of pictures from the last week or so.
Here Harris-veli is pondering his new life of kitten playmate....
Äiti never thought she'd see him do this.
He has quite a grip and even with his long claws he knows how to be gentle with the ninja butterballs.

Stran-veli continues to be in charge of all things nurturing.
We love this big guy so much. Everyone wants to be close to him.
Tuomo-veli is still a miserable old git. We love him but no one dares to be close to him!
He looks very mean but he is a big softie sometimes.
But we are very pleased he takes his pill twice a day - crushed up in creme fraiche. And he leaps on the bed at night for his tummy tickle from Äiti. He sleeps by her pillow which is one of the best places ever.
The catnip sock is permanently popular too.
And Pekka-poika loves his springy toys. No one else is allowed to play with them!
The kittens have learnt fast: sitting on Äiti while she is reading is a very effective way to get some attention.
And here's Mirsku under the ess. We love the ess and now it has kissanminttu rubbed in to it, it is usually occupied. We want Äiti to get more of them.
And finally, I am looking wistfully out of the catio.
The autumn is here and the stinky birds are gathering to fly away. We are now at a higher risk of kotka attack as they visit the lake nearby, so I am vigilant. I wish to protect perheeni especially now that I have the extra responsibilities of Jaava and Jura. And they are very hard to keep track of!
(Äiti's note: kotka will not attack -the catio is very safe and no eagle could get near it, but each spring and autumn an eagle might stop off briefly at the lake which is 200m away. I have never seen it though there.)

Wonderful "Saturday Selection!" But the sweetest is the pic of Stran and one of the kittens, snuggled up asleep. Heart-melting! :-)

A agree with Fuzzy Tales! And also it is nice to see the two kittens sleeping side by side in the first picture.

We think snuggling together is such a nice thing.

Eagles?! That sounds kind of scary, even if they don't come that near. Around here, we mostly get coyotes. Which is why my human always keeps us indoors.
