Wednesday wonderings

Jaava-ninja is always out chasing bugs. We all are. But as a super-rubbery ninja she can actually catch lots of them. Here she has triumphed against a damselfly. 
Now at this stage I'd use it as dental floss, and then one chomp and it'd be in my tummy. But she drops it.
Then she starts looking at it. I just don't get this! Maybe she's wondering how pretty it looks.
But then of course it flies away and a fantastic opportunity is lost. I do not get girlcats!
And in answer to the questions about the bug we caught the other day - let's put it this way, it wasn't on the catio the next morning. Äiti did not see what happened to it and cat's code of honour, we can't tell who got to crunch and munch.

And, loyal readers, we have some updates. Tuomo-veli's test results show increased thyroid levels (but all else is good) so he now gets more medication. There's no point even trying to get pills down him as Äiti would lose too much blood herself,  so he'll have extra spoons of creme fraiche each day. He licks that up, despite the fact the pill is crushed in it. This will not help his weight loss!
And Stran-veli is having a pill each day for his squitty bottom. Äiti is so proud of him as he is such a good pill-taker. But he is also getting bribed with best quality thin strips of raw beef steak - Äiti doesn't even buy that for herself! And she has changed our dried food to grain free. But we are getting less of it each day, which is not so good. She wants us to eat more of our boring wet food.

We get OUR pills crushed into cream cheese. Is that better than that, um, "creamed fresh" stuff?

I think damsel flies look awesomely tasty! I can't believe Jaava just lets them fly off!

But , Puna-Chan! There is nothing boring about wet food!!!

It's nice to see that Jaava-Ninja has some girlish sensibilities and did not finish off the damselfly.

Purrs,
The Chans

Our Oliver has gotten his passport and is packing his bags and is headed to your house! Creme fraiche! Fresh cut raw beef! Right now, Ollie takes seven pills a day- four AM and three PM- and mum just pushes them in his mouth. The nerve of the woman! We want your Aiti if we need pilling.
We hope dear Stran feels better soon. Our love to all.

What was Jaava Ninja thinking, letting the damselfly escape? Such a waste of a perfectly good bug!
