We Love the Weekend

Enough sulking! It's time to get enjoying the weekend and loving life and perheeni (including Aila-sisko, of course).  Yesterday, after a respectful lie in, we woke to find clear skies and cold snow.  Äiti took this photo from the back of the house area. My kingdom is highlighted in the yellow box. But the important thing is that there is a bright yellow blob in the sky: this was our midday sun! It is back. Soon it will be spring and life will return to the wilderness of snowy Finland (north).
And with this light and clear air, we braved the cold (-10'C) and went playing in the snow. 
 Tuomo-veli sank deep.
And we were quite worried about brave Jaava-ninja because her belly sank deep into the drifts as she made her way back to base camp. We do wish she would realise that she has not much fur and could easily become a frozen butterball.
 And I, of course, was very bravely charging around, checking all was well.
Äiti says I must tell you about some heroics I was involved with. Personally I am too modest to mention it but she insists. The other evening Mirsku-veli began bashing Jaava quite severely: she was chewing something from the floor. I was next closest and joined in - I did not want her eating what was on the floor. Äiti was most unhappy with us big mancats - until she realised that Jaava was trying to eat a pin! Mirsku-veli and I were protecting the little ninja. Äiti safely removed the pin and instead of frowns and wagging fingers, we got scritches and treats. She says we are hero cats - we were quite proud of that and had a lovely wash to celebrate.

We can't believe we're actually colder than you are, it looks freezing in that first photo. Brrr.

Wow, well done to you and Mirsku-veli for preventing Jaava from eating that pin! You're definitely heroes!

Oh boys! The little one could have been seriously injured, or worse, if you had not intervened! Lots of hugs, kisses, cuddles and treats, lots and lots of treats, are in order. Hurrah for our heroes!

You are very good brothers to protect Jaava from hurting herself. We are glad to see your sun has returned at last.

It has gotten colder in France roo and, as punishment for abandoning us again, Tommy and #1 are in a house with no central-heating...

That was heroic of you indeed. Jaava is a lucky girl.

Purrs,

HURRAH for sunlight! We will speak to Mister Sun and ask him to shine brightly when he passes over snowy Finland (North).

Puna, you and Mirksu are HEROES. Pin-eating is Not Allowed and you knew it!
