Snuggly Sunday

Yesterday joulukuusi was taken outside and Äiti collected a huge tub of pine needles to put in the sauna. We joined in with the cleaning, and also of course played outside. We are quite happy it is not so cold as it means we go out more. And of course we come inside to snuggles and cuddles, so I thought I would show you the softer side of perheeni
When Stran-veli came back from his operation a couple of weeks ago, I stood with him and made sure he ate some food. He did this within 2 minutes of coming home! 
Aila-sisko washed his wound from his little lump removal. This was a fibroma and not anything to worry about. And we are delighted to report ystävämme eläinlääkäri said Stran's blood test results were 'magnificent'.
The ninja's are quite enthusiastic in their snuggling. In particular Jura is a battering ram when he wants a snuggle, and Jaava just yells at us.
But they do slow down a bit. And then they find a place to snuggle. Mirsku-veli has a large capacity for this!

And they are often found together.
 And then they sleep in ridiculous positions!
 And sometimes they don't get much peace from us - particularly from Pekka-poika. 
We Finnish mancats show our affection in different ways. Tuomo-veli loves us all really, he's just a bit aggressive in how he shows it. Pekka-poika can cope though. 
 Okay, it's not much of a snuggle, but only friends can do this to each other.
But at the end of all the running and chasing, and the yelling and the pointing of paws in denial of who made the mess or stole the best bed, there's one thing that matters most........

Aww, to gorgeous gingers, head to head, heart to heart. Beautiful. That is what matters in the end.

Awwwww, we love seeing the softer side of perheeni! What do you use the pine needles for in the sauna? Aromatherapy?

OH! and we chuckled at Aiti's clever pun.

The pine needles give a nice smell. But they might be good fun to spread all over the floor.

Lots of loving snuggles and cuddles! We are glad everything went well for Stran.
