The Battle of the Saturday Cigar, part 1

Usually on a Saturday night we are sprawled over our essess, snorting up whatever we can find. But last Saturday Äiti unearthed a vintage kissanminttu cigar. We were berating her for not giving it to us sooner (can you believe it had been in the cupboard for 18months!), when of course we were distracted by the vapours. And as you can imagine, there followed a very delicate battle over who could get to savour the delights of top quality nip.
Pekka-poika was surprisingly in there first. We can assure you that this was because he happened to be in the right place at the right time: he is nowhere near topcat in our hierarchy.
But he got first drool. You can perhaps see how the cigar change colour where it gets wet. Jura-ninja leads the first attempt to disarm Pekka.
 Ruska is waiting eagerly nearby.
 Aila-sisko adds to the pressure.
 Jura-ninja attacks; Aila-sisko looks shocked and Ruska's paw is outstretched. Where is the cigar?
 Harris-veli approaches.
Ah, Pekka-poika is doing a good job of keeping a paw on the cigar - this is a good tactic. Aila-sisko won't reach it from where she is.
 Jura attempts to paw it out. Jaava-ninja approaches. Pekka-poika better watch out: there are sneaky girlcats behind him on both sides.
 Pekka notices Jura's cheeky attempt and is Not Impressed. He better look behind him!
 Pekka has to deal with Jura-ninja's paw.  But who has gently tapped the cigar away and is about to have a great Saturday evening for himself now ?

A nip filled cigar? I have never heard of such a thing. But oh, what a heavenly thing it must be!

Pekka-poika, we really got to get together and compare our similar furs! - Marley

Hmmm, did Ruska quietly win the battle while the war raged on?

Poor Pekka was outnumbered but at least he got first go at the cigar. We see a black paw behind him. We think it is Ruska who has taken it.
