Weesday

As the daylight hours grow longer, we find Äiti is sometimes coming home from work while it is still light. We then clamour around the back door, wanting to go out. The snow is quite deep but we do manage to dash out. And the first place we stroll to is our very own Poo Corner. 
And yes, this is where the snow is getting more yellow, and lumpy brown. Stran-veli has been meticulous in scraping it.
 And he is of course equally carefully in cleaning himself.
Now Poo Corner is frozen solid and it is hard to scrape, but the powdery snow is soft on the 'tocks. Amazingly Jaava-ninja usually stays out the longest - she managed 5 whole minutes yesterday when it was -10'C. The rest of us were inside, nice and toasty but Äiti was monitoring her very closely to check she had not frozen absolutely solid.
In Finland it can be very dangerous to stick your tongue out in winter. If you lick something metal, you get stuck to it!  This apparently is something human children do, but they only do it once! We, of course, never do it at all.........

Human kittens are weird - who in their right mind would lick metal? Certainly us kitties know better!

We like the snow on the rare occassions that we get it, but we wouldn't like those very low temperatures.
Getting a tongue stuck to metal reminded mum of something that happened to her when she was 6 or 7. It was school sports day and her mum bought her an ice lolly. It must have been extra cold because when she licked it, her tongue stuck to it. She has never forgotten it and has always been very careful with ice lollies ever since.
