Tuomo Tuesday

If you were once a little baby burmese butterball, it's possible that the older members of perheeni will always treat you as a baby butterball, and Tuomo-veli is expert at this. Tuomo is usually a grumpy old man but occasionally, when he feels like it, he'll go and sit on a ninja. Just for fun. And because he can. 
Jura is extremely unimpressed, and had already spent a few minutes lying back and thinking of Finland by the time this photo was taken.
But he is of course buttery and as soon as he felt the muscular tuxie grip slacken, he wriggled and jiggled.
Despite the fact that Tuomo was giving his neck a bitey.
And the super-power ninja is still twisting away.
And eventually escapes from under the snorgle monster.
And then Tuomo is left pawing at air.   
And of course Jura wants to show he is in fact a mighty man cat and makes Tuomo  raise his paws in response.
 Tuomo looks like he's seen a ghostie..
And he runs away like a girlcat!
Loyal readers, it is most gratifying to be out playing on the catio and getting our photos taken again. Although I notice that the ninjas are getting more than their fair share of attention. We are already feeling the autumn chill though, and Äiti saw a brief glimpse of revontulet last night.

Äiti here- Actually Tuomo makes no attempt to hump Jura, it really is limited to a belly snorgle and huge hug. which is quite sweet to see.

Awesome mancat wrassling!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Can I send Ichiro to sit on a ninja? He is always sitting on me and I find it tiresome.

Gigi said...

Uh oh. I'm in trouble now! I KNEW I could not rely on the Human's fading memory (honestly, it's not like she even has TWO CELLS left to rub together inside that empty skull). We are going back to our email and consulting the learned texts on the political situation of Finland (North) and Finland (South). We will be back in touch once we have brushed up!

Has there been a position that Jura could not get out of? Are you sure he has bones and not some rubber, super flexible skeleton?

Kari said...

Prancer Pie is certainly right about Jura. Those butterballs seem to defy the laws of science!

The look on Jura's face in that first photo is just priceless, and the entire series is mist excellent!

Teillä on siellä aina niin hienoja ilmeitä ja eleitä!

Gigi said...

All right, we think we unnerstands now that Finland is out of the question. I feel that since I have undergone my recent trauma, though, I need some new conquest to rebuild my self esteem as a Kingly ManCat. Perhaps a surprise attack on the Isle of Wight? I understand there are some very pleasant Victorian resorts and perhaps an empty castle or two, ripe for the taking?

Please advise.

Hm...aside from the delightful and breathtaking commentary with real-life photos of those two manly mancats, I must say that the continuing saga of King Spitty, who must needs effect his takeover somewhere and soon is equally exciting. I can sense his impatience, his feeling of entitlement. I await the next chapter breathlessly.
