Monday Munching

I am unhappy to report that my left back paw is still hurting and I will be looked at by ystävämme eläinlääkäri later.  Äiti has harshly said that it 'serves me right', and Risto puoli-häntä has been staring confidently at me with a smirk, but I shall have my revenge on him when I feel better. Currently I am not feeling so happy and am indeed very sorry for my most royal self.
However life in perheeni continues and we were delighted to have some loyal readers visit yesterday and heap attention and praise on all of us. This was most gratifying and I was briefly lifted from my considerable sorrows by them. Risto spent ages purring and demanding scritches from them - I have more self-control.
Before the Battle with the Half-tail on Saturday, there was much celebrating on the catio. Here Jura-ninja is indulging in his study of botany.
A quick observation of the leaves and he has correctly identified kissanminttu.  This is a plant which survived our Finnish winbter, as Äiti did not plant seeds this spring. Another reason to be mad at her, please note.
And of course Jura does what most of us do. He closes his eyes, opens wide and proudly inhales the great vapours.
And of course then he has even more super-powers so decides to whack Pekka around the chops. 
What happens next - well wait for tomorrow!

Puna-Chan, we are properly concerned about your paw, after all, it was injured in a mighty fight...no matter what Äiti says, we know that you are King of Finland (North) and should not be challenged.

Since Äiti has already scolded you, we shall refrain from piling on and simply convey our royal good wishes for a speedy recovery (but King P, you had better not be malingering simply to frighten Äiti into cooing and snuggling you and forgetting all about you-know-what).

We enjoyed these pictures of Jura (tongue discreetly exposed) enjoying his herbal fun!

I bet there's gonna be some kitty wrassling going on! Keep us posed on how your paw is doing - I hope it heals up without too much veterinary intervention!

Dear Punapippuri and Risto, please get well soon🐱🐱...and stop fighting, it is useless and only brings hurt. Purring regards, Neko and Sake

I hope your paw is soon better and that you did not have to suffer unmentionable indignities at the vet.
