Sunday Strop

Now that Äiti has stopped behaving 'kun kissa kuumalla kadolla'  (like a cat on a hot tin roof), we should be getting some quality time with her. But yesterday she came home and left again, off to watch stinky birds! She did get back quite soon but then the queue for tickles and her lap was very long, and none of us got nearly enough time.
And today we have an important visitor, so Äiti is cleaning away. We wonder when we'll get her to sit and play with us, and give us tasty treats!
Now, I suppose I have to tell you about her test, as so many of you have offered your good wishes. I notice that a few of you have sent sympathies to me and perheeni, because of the way in which we have suffered during this crisis, and I thank you whole heartedly for that. Your loyalty has been appreciated. Anyway, apparently the test went better than she expected but she doesn't think she passed all the parts of it as the speaking and listening were tough. She clearly needs much more practise in speaking by going to our favourite pet shop, Muskettikoira, and asking for more food for us.
But one thing we found quite touching, was something Äiti made to fiddle with in the exam. She gets really bad panics so does different things to try to keep focused, like playing with things in her hand. She combed Stran-veli and me, and put a bundle of our fluff in her pocket. Look at the little balls she had made by the end of the test!
I would have quite happily made her a furball myself to take along.

Aita was acting like a cat on a hot tin roof? Does that mean you finally had her "fixed"?

We're so glad that's behind all of you. Will she reapply to take it again? Let's worry about that, then! We think it's very sweet of you to offer up a pre-formed furball to Aiti!

That was sweet of your human to bring your fur along to calm herself, but yeah, she could totally have had ready-made hairballs - all she needed to do, I'm sure, was ask!

Harjoituksen vuoksi, taidamme aina jatkossakin kirjoittaa suomeksi! Voi Äiti sitten keskittyä teihin. :)

Zepa said...

Hyvä idea, Mamma N. Nyt odotellaan kokeen tuloksia!

Those little fur balls are a great calming technique. We say kudos to Aiti for getting through the test, no matter how well she did. :-)

That made MY mommy smile really big and made me want to give head bumps to your Aiti. Here are some kitty kissies and you guys are sure lucky to be so loved. And I am hoping hoping hoping all goes well with the tests. I sorries I am late here. Mom was mooning around over me thinking I was gonna die or something just because I was off kilter a bit from all of my shots. I'm fine so now she is making her way around.

Those furballs are quite cute, but we all know you could have made far better ones to keep in her pocket.

Mommy says the fur was a great idea! She would prolly need a whole cat; nothing calms her down better than cat huffing.

yeah PPP!

Fur balls looks pretty. My servant also loves to use F-balls like äiti. In the spring servant gives the F-balls to stinky birds... And they used "us" to build nests.

Don't tell this to äiti.

We wonder if your Aiti ever saw an old American movie with Humphrey Bogart called The Caine Mutiny about the captain of a ship who is going kind of bonkers. And you know what? He carries around a couple of ball bearings in his hand, just like those little furballs! I think you better keep an eye on your Mommy, hahameow!
