Catio Clearance Sunday

The snow has already come, and our catio was in desperate need of clearing. Äiti took down the shelves and the skyway, and covered up tables with tarps. We always have a slightly different arrangement each year, to keep us amused. So far we still have one bed, which I had a paw around, and the reindeer fur lined hut is essential for us. This year it is at a height so we can oversee the kingdom.
Jaava-ninja was out, allegedly supervising but she just wanted to play in the snow.
She couldn't wait to get out of the tuulikaappi . Note the kissanminttu pots: Äiti is going to try to jkeep these alive and will take them inside to a cupboard when the temperature really drops.
Pekka-poika got distracted by Jaava's sunshine bottom Typical!
Here you can see how some of the shelves have been removed, and Poo Corner is exposed - ready for our comfort. We also have a tray on the left, just by the back door.
The Rock of Norway is holding down a tarp - we were keen to explore underneath.
Very keen....
.....it was getting quite crowded.
Aila-sisko had a check of Poo Corner - more pots here. Äiti planted some things for Tessie-kilpikonna to eat, so let's hope something survives!
I looked around and decided all was well after a couple of hours. Then Äiti was allowed to go up to the sauna.

Good to hear that Aiti has kept up "poo corner". We have been worried that you kittehz might not have outside "facilities". Sounds like Aiti earned herself a little rest. Time fur a kitteh-pile!

Wow, living in Finland is a lot of work. The Human is old and fat and slow and it's a good thing she doesn't have to do all that because she just WOULDN'T do all that and then everyone would freeze, or not have anyplace to pee, or poop, or something. We live year-round in the 50-70 Fahrenheit range. It's boring, but easy, MOL.

I think I might try to teleport over next weekend to check out poo corner and all. I'm afraid I might not have enough furs though. Hmmm.

Your nip must be amazingly hardy! I get the feeling that if my wimpy southern California nip so much as got a whiff-ful of snow, it would keel over and perish!

It looks like everything is in order over your way. We're glad your staff proved to be up to scratch!

We chuckled over you guys disappearing under the tarp! Just how many of you will fit?
May Ling wants to know where Mirksu was during all this activity...

Snow so early? Brrrr... Here we have leaves. Then there will be rain next week 'cause of that Sandy. Hopefully no snow 'til late November 'cause the peep still has to plant my iris bulbs. purrs

It looks like a lot of work getting ready for winter. We have a reindeer skin which mum brought us back from Norway. We used to have it indoors but I kept tearing out huge mouth and claw fulls so now we only get to sleep on it when we are in lock up.

We does nots has snow yet (thank cod) but any time soon. Me thinks Mommy and Daddy should has gots off their fluffy bottoms today and cleaned up our deck, but they said it was too cold and rainy and they ached. Our deck is a mess and not nice, like your catio and a poo corner outside, that is something me has to ask about.
