Hauskaa Vappua! Happy May Day!

Loyal readers, today is a big holiday in Finland.  All the humans go mad and get very drunk. It's something to do with celebrating the end of the winter, workers' rights and an excuse to get drunk - apparently. Äiti doesn't like loud stuff with loads of people, but she knows we appreciate a good nipfest. And we have a lot to celebrate - just look at how much snow has melted!
Mirsku-veli is very blissed out.
And who is this who has been snorting the silvervine ? This is perhaps not such a good example to young kitties.
Juura-ninja is definitely indulging - at the tender age of just one year, he thinks he can cope with the partying along with us mancats.
 Aila-sisko is very spaced out.
 She really is about to fall over.
We hope our fellow Finncats are also having a wild time with lots of treats and kissanminttu. And also that you are able to join in with the other great Vappu tradition - peeing any place and anytime!
But we do have a more personal reason to celebrate in perheeni: it's  Tuomo-veli's 3rd Gotcha Day. He may be a really grumpy bugger who growls at anyone who passes, and steals Äiti's attention from me (pah!) but he's our grumpy old bugger and we love him.

Happy gotcha day, Tuomo! Nip and silvervine sounds a lot more fun than the humans alternative. Why don't they try it instead?

Fine analysis again PPP! Human beings are just stupid like you said. They are too loud and think only themselves - just opposite to you and your fine family.
