Mauling on Monday

It can be really tough here in Finland (north), especially in winter. Our brave little ninjas are out patrolling in the frozen snows. There is little food to be found, and they have to wander for ages before they find a hint of a morsel in the deep drifts. And all the time they must be wary of predators.
Especially Tuomo, the tiger of the sub-Arctic. He gives them no peace and as soon as he spots a Burmese butterball, he attacks!
 The snow flies and the fur freezes.
 Tuomo especially likes putting the bitey on a Burmese bottom. Jaava looks on very patiently.
 But a foot in the face is really not liked.
 She's planning her escape, fast!
She leaps away.
 But her place is swiftly taken by her brother.  Tuomo's joy is clear.
 He turns to go for the bum-bite.
 But Jura is far too buttery and quick. He will not be bitten!
And he dashes inside to warm up. Unfortunately Toumo follows and the playfights continue for some time. We have to admire the rubbery ninjas, they have patience and stamina - which is just as well!

We think the ninja bottoms are extremely biteable too! They are so yummy looking!

Jaava and Jura look a little vexed at Tuomo's games! I cannot say I blame them - I am sure I would not like to have my behind bitten!

LOL at the orca comment. :-)

You guys have the best tussling matches ever. We're not tussling much right now, so it's good to see others take up our slack. Ha.

Actually, we think that the "Butterballs" look quite a bit like mountain lions in some of those photos, so watch out, Tuomo! They're still growing!

We laughed at Tuomo biting bottoms. They are very good action pictures.
