Saturday Catioday

In the last week we have had blizzards blowing across the catio. The snow is wild and wind blown. Äiti has been sent out to do snow work to make sure all is tidy for us.
 The snow has been uneven, and it is very hard to know if we will sink down to our belly fur as we traverse the wilderness outside.
Stran-veli helps her dig the snow.
Peka-poika inspects the path she has dug to Poo Corner.
I keep look out, risking being blown away in the Arctic gusts.
And then Aila-sisko finally shows herself and judges it safe for a girlcat to stick her paws outside.
Just beyond the catio we are hoping that a new snack dispenser will prove fruitful this year. Loyal readers, this fills us with hope and makes Äiti very excited - there is a little camera inside and she hopes to watch any birdies that nest inside. We of course share her keen interest.....

And finally we all had a chuckle at this. Jura-ninja picks his way through the drifts.

A blizzard doesn't sound fun to us, but oh, my, Jura really does have an interesting snow-walking technique!

We'll look forward to your bird TV--that will be very cool!

I am not so sure that Jura was built for blizzard conditions!

Jura does not seem to like this blowing snow!

Ha Ha Ha! That photo of Jura-Ninja is priceless!

You are all so brave to be out in that thick snow.

We do hope that the nest box wil yield something wonderful!

Purrs,
The Chans

ha ha ha! Jura is lighter on his feet now, being nutless and all!

We are twitching in anticipation over the new snack dispenser...

We love the picture of Jura. I remember seeing LC do that walk when I first came here.

Thank Cod, poo corner has not been obliterated in that neverending snow! The little butterball is obviously not made fur those harsh blizzard conditions. HaHaMeow!
