Stran String Tuesday

The string toy continues to be the centre of our attention - expect many more photos to come. Stran was out playing on Sunday. The catio was a bit damp, but the temperature was still quite warm. Now we know it looks like these were taken at midnight, but it was actually midday: the light is really poor as there is no snow yet and Äiti is using the flash all the time. This is not so pleasant on our eyes.
It shows us in quite a harsh light. 
But it does freeze the action so you can see the neat, fast foot work we use to trap the string.
 And also the neat, fast feet of Stran after a trip to Poo Corner.
Stran-veli has a unique fur arrangement. We know you might spend hours wishing your furs into this style, a central ridge; an imperial mohican! It is all perfectly natural and Äiti thinks it is quite handsome.

We think unique fur arrangements are great. Just ask Brulee about her fur horns.

Oh Stran, Rumblemum says that Tuesday is her favorite day of the week now :)

I think I would go crazy in Finland from the lack of sun puddles! Although Stran seems to be holding up quite well.

Stran's fur are enviable! We must admit to letting the "green-eyed monster" get to us over his luxurious coat. Looking great Stran, even after visiting poo corner! Happy Tuesday

We'd have a hard time with the lack of light too...at least our human would. On the other hand, that would mean lots of fish and fish oil, for the omega-3!

Stran is unique, period. And definitely so handsome!

It's clearly no coincidence that Stran and String both start with STR- Obviously, he is a Master of the Art of String Control. The rest of you cannot hope to compete.

I'm a little worried. The Human is due to leave for work in the next five or ten minutes, yet here she sits in her baffrobe, coffee in hand, enraptured by some string-flinging Finnish cat. What if she loses her JOB, King P?? What about THAT? What if she can't buy my FUDZ??? Oh, whew, good--there she goes!

Stran, You´re so cute!

Stran is such a beautiful boy! What gorgeous furs.
All of us here ( both feline and human) are in love with him! A perfect companion for those long dark nights.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Stran is very handsome with his Mohican fur. My fur goes like that if we see an introoder whereas Flynn poofs up all over. Usually my fur is flat though.

That King Spitty has a way with words..."...string flinging Finnish cat...".

Stran has the most beautiful fluffy fur, and his tail is really unique looking. From a certain angle, the fur on his cheeks looks like a bobcat fur tufts.
