Pekan perse perjantaina - Pekka's bottom Friday!

Pekka had a very traumatic day yesterday. Äiti had been worried about his rear end on account of the fact that his, ahem, bottom sacs, oozed icky stinky stuff quite often.  So, the Box of Doom appeared and he went in the car to ystävämme eläinlääkäri.
Pekka sang loud and proud all the way there, and hissed and growled at a couple of dogs in the waiting room. Then he was weighed: he is 6kg! He had blood taken and then some very undignified things done to his bottom. He was very glad to get home.
He did sneak around carefully. 
And he allowed young Sampo to wash his bottom. We don't think he is stinky.
Now Äiti has ointment to put onto his little pencil sharpener twice each day. Neither Pekka nor Äiti is looking forward to that but hopefully it will stop the infection which he has in his anal glands. 
While Äiti was at ystävämme eläinlääkäri she met a huge (3.4kg) kilpikonna. Much bigger than Tessie. She was very good looking, and Äiti said she'd post a picture of Tessie so her humans could see. Tessie is doing very well - she is outside all day now and enjoying eating the greenery outside. She is enjoying her summer.

That whole rear end biz of Pekka's sounds like it was highly unpleasant - and probably will be for a while yet!

I sing the Song of My Suffering Comrade. I song it loudly and long. Perhaps it will carry all the way to Finland? If only *I* could have trained Stampo to provide soothing baffs to my hurty places!

Oh my, that was/is some unpleasant business! (for Aiti too!) We hope it clears up quickly and painlessly. xoxo

Pee Ess - Mommy has decided very recently that she doesn't want to kiss Sampo's nose anymore...

Delighted to know Tessie is well and happy but saddened to know Mr. Pekka is having problems. And the problems he is having are nasty for both cat and cat parent!!!
We hope those glands quiet down soon. We'll pray he feels better quickly!

Aww, poor Pekka, we hope he gets over his infection super fast!

Hei dude, I had the same kind of problem when I was younger. The vet did stuff for my butt several times :-/ But not anymore!

Nicki is wincing in sympathy! Purrs for speedy healing.

BTW, Nicki goes in every few months to see a vet tech for his glands. They seem to fill up very quickly. Yuck.

You might want to use the word peppu. The word you used has the same emotive force as arse.

Thank you Anonymous; we did know our peppu from our perse in this case.

Poor Pekka! I hope his butt is soon better for both your sakes.
It wasn't Stran we saw in the chair yesterday I think it was Aila because it was a mostly white cat and when she jumped down it looked like a black tail and I think a black spot on the back, but that could have been shadow. Mum was busy today so I didn't get chance to watch you.

Great picture show for us this morning! (4:45 pm your time)
So many of you outside, nomming grass, using poo corner, or lounging on Aiti's back. MOL!
We applaud her dedication on gettin the pic at just the right angle.
