Socks on Thursday

In the dark, cold Finnish winter it is very hard to get fruit, especially nip bananas. So Äiti ensures we get our 'five a day' with her old socks (it's more fun than it sounds) stuffed with kissanminttu. Stran gets first snort.
No one will wrench this from his mighty paws.
What you cannot see is the drool that now soaks the socks.
But even so, he will hang on to the soggy sock as long as he possibly can.

Hee hee, Star is a nip drooler too! She soaks everything nip filled!
I wouldn't try to get that away from him! I'd be afraid of losing an arm!

It's possible that I drool too... and that Rumblemum thinks it's the cutest thing ever! (so of course now she loves Stran even more...)

Sparkle said...

I actually think this is not only an acceptable solution - it is quite creative!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

But the drool is the BEST PART. I would think the rest of you would want that old sock Even More now that it is soaked in the Leader's drool!

We hope Aiti's first day back at ::shudder:: work was not too unpleasant. I still have the Human for a few more days, though she did go out for quite a long time today. Bruch, visiting and the library were mentioned, but I noticed none of those things benefited the Kitty in any way. Sigh.

We all want nip socks, too! Stran's mighty paws haf our Mom weak in the knees with the desire to kiss each toe! Beautiful!

Could there be a more perfect use for socks?

Fuzzy Tales said...

Our mum is cheap with the nip. She sews it inside of baby sox. A whole big bean sock with nip would be heaven!

The nip is always the best for a boring day.

We sometimes get Nip rolled up in a pair of old socks. We havent figured out how to undo them, but we keep bunny-kicking them to try.
