Snowy Saturday

What's Pekka-poika doing, all wide-eyed on the catio ?
 Aha - a friendly blink ......
 And then a respectful look downwards.
 Now we know why....
 But Mirsku-veli will not be blinked at. He charges and Pekka-poika throws his paws up like a girlcat.
 So Mirsku-veli swings a paw.
 And gets a thwack on the head.
 Pekka-poika vaults over Fatboy.
 Now he knows he has to run away fast.
 Run as fast as you can!
 But he's not fast enough to avoid the side swipe. Mirsku-veli is not easily beaten.
Loyal readers, it is New Year's Eve and we will spend some moments reflecting on the year, and those we have lost. A candle will be burning on our catio, and we will be hoping for a healthy and wealthy 2012 for perheeni, and for all our friends far and wide. To all of you, onnellista uutta vuotta!

Those are great photos. We like Pekka-poika's wide eyed wicked look. That is the way Eric looks before he pounces on me.

Happy New Year to all of you and Aiti too.

What a great play-fight between you two!
We are so happy to learn that Stran didn't have to lose his teeth at the vet's.
Happy New Year to all at your place in Finland! Stay warm, healthy, happy and have a great 2012.

What a beautiful snow photo! It's 25C/77F and doesn't seem at all like New Years Eve.
A candle will be lit by our mum at sundown and will burn through the night in memory of those we loved and lost and all of the kitties called to the bridge before finding someone to love them.
We hope Stran isn't finding his mouth too uncomfortable after his dental work.
From our home to yours, a very happy, healthy and loving New Year. God bless you.
Love Kari, Gran and the Cats.
