Feel Good Friday

It's been a long time since we have had a 'Feel Good Friday' post and today is even better because it is the holiday of Juhannus here: this is Midsummer and our longest day. It marks the middle of our 24 hour daylight season, and we have access all the time outside now. It is also a public holiday and we wish all of you celebrating a great party!
We've been playing long and hard on the catio, and Äiti has been experimenting with her new camera. It can take up to 30 photos in one second so here's a slide show for your amusement. Watch out Jura!

And here is a slow motion video of Jura on the catio. Äiti has added a soundtrack to this one which sort of fits.

We greatly appreciate the cries for pictures and displays of my most royal self, and also for views of Risto and Roosa. These deficiencies will be rectified soon. In the meantime - have a great Friday.
Hyvää juhannusta kaikille!

Wow--now THAT is some impressive leaping. Unfreakingbelievable is what the Human says. What *I* say is, what good is all that leaping if he never catches the darn thing?

Hyvää juhannusta!

Olipahan hienot esitykset! Jura on sitä mieltä, että heiluta vaan, kyllä minä hyppään :)

Those were awesome videos! I wish my human's camera did that!

That is a fantastic slow motion video to show off Jura's athleticism. A great series of photos of Sampo's launch at Jura too. Right, I'm going to see if anyone is on the catio now!

That slo-mo video was fantastic. Just amazing!

Happy Solstice! Our human always gets bummed out about the summer Solstice, because it means we're on the downward slide to another dark, dreary, depressing, endlessly long and freezing winter. LOL.

Maybe she'd be happier if we got a holiday too!

Yesh PPP!

Hyvää Juhannusta all to you.

Ninjas moves softly and elegance. My eyes rest pics and videos like that. And I also can remembering my own good old times, when I was young and vitaly. Thanks this.

We are forcing Mommy to take notes, the clumsy oaf...

What sort of camera did Äiti buy? Mommy NEEDS one of these!

Flynn said...

Oh no, I missed Pekka waving to me! It must have been when mum went to make potato salad.When she came back there was a lot of activity and we saw Aiti taking photos with that wonderful new camera.
Just to clarify. That was mum calling it a wonderful camera. We all know that no flashy box is wonderful when it follows our every move.
