Stran Boss on Monday

A couple of nights ago, Jura-ninja wanted to play. He saw a tuxie mancat on the floor and forgot himself briefly - he leapt on Harris-veli and they had a grapple. This spooked our gentle Britcat and he yelped a little before dashing to safety under a chair. He wasn't hurt, just shocked.
A nanosecond later Stran-veli trotted downstairs to check what was happening. First he gave a stare of admonishment to Jura-ninja who was suitably chastised.  Pekka just has to watch and learn.
Then he went and nuzzled Harris with a head rub to check his Britcat buddy was okay (no photo of that - the photographer didn't keep up).
And then Stran realised he had to do a bit of occupying the kits and he went over to Jura and gave a full on snorgle.
He knew the young whippersnapper was missing being sat on.
Harris felt better so came out to watch. Jura was in his element, and Stran was showing who was boss. Even with a 5kg butterball he has such authority and paternal instinct.
He's unfazed by paws and claws and rubbery bones.
Jura can only put his ears back in respect.
And lie back and be snorgled.
Loyal readers, it is New Year's Eve and we wish you and your loved ones all the very best for 2013: may it bring you health and happiness. Cherish every moment - life is to be loved.

Happy Mew Year to each and every being at your house!

Kudos to Stran--he is like our John, engulfing (and/or humping) any whippersnappers into submission. Quite effective.

These are wonderful pictures of the process of life moving forward after a loss. Efurryone has to sort out how to cope, and your Stran is a wise old soul, tending to everykitty's needs. Is Pekka Poika learning at the paws of The Great One?

We wish you a wonderful New Year--it's still Sunday here. The Human has invited Introodurs over tomorrow night. I am not looking forward to that.
