Snow cat Sunday

I am perhaps a little humbled by my loyal readers, some of whom suggested that perhaps I was exaggerating about my adventures in the wild drifts of the forest, and the long trek back to my home comforts. I do confess that perhaps I did embellish the truth a little, and at no time was I more than a couple of punapippurinkusemaa from home. But I am sure you will all understand that there is a certain romance about the white snow and winter chill which makes us all think of the wildness of nature, and great heroism in enduring such harsh conditions!
Here I am dashing back to the safety of my homestead. While Jaava-ninja noses around in the snow.
And here we have a general play time. Pekka-poika always wants to pounce around.
Ruska is getting much more playful with his fellow mancats, and he understands Pekka is not out to spook him.
So he gives him a good thwack and tries to push him into a snowdrift!
 Oh yes, behind those deep eyes there's a very playful panther.

What fun for all of you! Äiti has done a commendable job (for a human) of crafting an exciting snow habitat for you to enjoy.

Puna-Chan, we are gladdened to know you made it back indoors unscathed except by commenters!

These are wonderful, candid photos. Cats at play. Hugs, Deb

Yeah, I did factor in a bit of exaggeration. ;-) I still can't get over all the kitty snow games - I do live in southern California, after all!

Why, Punapippuri, I am SHOCKED, I say, SHOCKED that a mighty Finnish warrior-cat such as yourself would feel the need to exaggerate his exploits, MOL!

And say, I'm really a little insulted that the Human has been squeeing with such enthusiasm over that close-up of Ruska--after all, am *I* not House Panther enough for her???

King Punapippuri,BEWARE of Ruska. If he builds more self confidence,then your throne might be in danger.

Splendid last photo of Ruska!

Puna-Can, we quite understand about romance in telling tales and say Go For It! Weare currently enjoying the romance of sunpuddles and loving every moment!

Kari said...

Hello you handsome blank panther! Wow! What a gorgeous face! Like Prancer's mum, our mum is over the moon in love with Ruska. Our lady cats agree....meow, meow, purr, purr, purr!
Pekka is so like our Tigger. Happy, bouncy, leaping places rather than walking. We're crazy about your mid leap photos!!!

You may have exaggerated your mighty trek back home yesterday? Of surely not! We can hardly believe it.
Looks like you all have fun in the snow.
