Elemental Thursday

Just as we thought that we were winning in the battle against studying. Äiti pulled a nasty trick on Tuesday and abandoned us for the day. Yesterday she felt very guilty so stayed with us throughout the day. But little did we know that she had been thinking. This is often useful, as she invents things for us to play with, but this time it simply proved she is descending fast into nerd-dom. She said she had a nice relaxing train journey so got to thinking about how we cats were like chemical elements.
Lewis likes to hide, he is totally elusive and ignores most things - he is a noble cat perhaps like the element krypton - doesn't participate much.
Harris is his brother and similar, but he is seen more often and perhaps is also noble like argon.
We then have a more reactive group - much more reactive. And these are the mainly white members of perheeni. Äiti thinks Aila is the most reactive -I am inclined to agree. She is like potassium - pretty explosive with us but she can be soppy with Äiti. But not for long usually!
And Roosa is also a reactive girlcat, but less outward going than Aila so she is sodium. She likes being tickled by Äiti, but only on her head and picking up is not allowed!
Risto is very friendly to humans - more so than Roosa as he will let himself be picked up and tickled. But with us mancats he whinges away and is pretty reactive: he is lithium.
Ruska is elusive but strong. He is powerful and heavy, but he doesn't like human contact (except when there are treats around). He has rusty brown fur by his front paws so Äiti says he is iron.
  And Jaava and Jura ninja can only be one thing - mercury or quicksilver!  So fast they are liquid.
Mirsku is heavy and solid, and very attractive to others. he doesn't do much, he just likes to do his own thing and plays when he wants. He is easy to stretch and play with, and is very content with himself. He is gold.
Pekka gets everywhere.  He likes to be involved in everything -and is often there when things get a bit hot and firey. He is oxygen. He is an important part of our life as he is very social.
Tuomo-veli is heavy, and unpleasant to most of us. He wants to be on his own with Äiti so he is quite greedy, and he is a big softie who loves his tummy tickles and cuddles. When he gets playful he loves squashing ninjas so he is lead.
Stran is essential to life. He is carbon - he bonds with all of us, he is everywhere and plays so many roles. Above all, Äiti says he is a diamond.
So I have been very excited to find out what special element I am. I then realised that Mirsku is gold, and I am a bit miffed as I am golden. So maybe I could be copper but Äiti said that only matches my colour. So, I am admittedly really not so happy to be...hydrogen!
Pah! Äiti needs to do some more study!  She says I am so light, and skittish I have to be a gas. She hinted if I ate some more then maybe I would be something else - she's always having a nag about food and I am trying very hard to eat more. Then she said I am - apparently- quite explosive and cause a lot of trouble, and get involved in many reactions. I am also the giver of water, well, watery stuff! As you can see I am not so impressed with this.  She says hydrogen is at the head of the Periodic Table so is very important, not in the middle like gold. Everything follows hydrogen and maybe this is okay, as I am King Kitty Cat of Finland (North) and all must follow me.

Excellent chices for all of you. And don't forget, EVERYTHING started out as Hydrogen...so that is the MOST important element of all!

We shall have to nag Mommy to do us up as well. We all ready know that Grayce is Sulfur!

Your human is thinking too much! Geez. Comparing you kitties to the elements sounds like something my human would do - and you do NOT want her to be like my human!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

That is a most excellent game! The Human thinks that would be fun to do with Literary Characters (she is not science-smart like your Äiti). There is only one of me, so that wouldn't be too much of a challenge, but perhaps she will give character names to some of my furiends and Royal associates too. This has given her something to think about as she worries her way through the rest of Game One tonight!

Your Aiti is very smart. The lady said her brain got tired just reading the post.

Hee, hee, are you gas or do you have gas?

That is so awesome!

Prancer Pie said...

Wonderful analogy! Your disgust with your element or (mebbe Aiti's studying) is apparent, Punapippuri. MOL!

Rumblemum says that Stran is a diamond in her eyes as well. We're just happy to see the lovely ladycats in this post!

However, we admite that the Ninjas are absolutely spot on!!!

Purrs,

We thought you might be one of the Noble Gases since you are King Kitty Cat of Finland (North).
But they really don't suit your personality. Hydrogen leads the Periodic Table, that's good, and the Noble
Gas kitties can be your majesty's court. Going to need more kitties, though, to fill some vacant elements.
