Burmese butterball birthday!

One year ago, the Burmese butterballs blasted into the world. Twelve weeks later, perheeni changed forever. Maybe we can spend the next year recovering.......
At Kissmollin  brave mother cat Martta produced 5 little furry sausages who were soon identified as three girlcats and two boycats.  
Äiti visited and the inevitable happened - we were getting two of them to join us. And we of course had Jaava- the girlcat who always pushed the others out of the way when she wanted food (and also was the first to poo in the box). And her brother Jura was to come along too, to be her play mate. Jaava and Jura are somewhere in this photo!
And even at feeding time they were impossible to tell apart - one of the girlcats is elsewhere creating mischief (probably Jaava).
 We welcomed them with love and kindness.
 They knew no fear.
 Except maybe when meeting Stran who was so much bigger than them. This of course didn't last.
 And they may have shown me a little respect, for maybe a few seconds.
They made themselves very much at home and got everywhere.
 And they played endlessly.
 They had infinite energy.
 And we became sure they could fly.
And Stran-veli took them under his paw and showed them all the love and kindness he could. Just as he has with every single one of us.
 And they wisely looked up to him.
Even though they totally disrespect me!
To the little ninjas - Jaava and Jura, and their sisters Annabella and Isabelle, and most excellent brother Nomi: we all wish you a very happy birthday. Hyvää syntymäpäivää! Here is to many, many more of them.

My goodness, a year already? Wow!

We love your choice of words here: "We welcomed them with love and kindness." LOL. Yes, we see that. Ha. We remember, too. :-)

A very happy birthday to Jura and Jaava, and we hope their siblings have as wonderful forever homes as they do!
