Stranday

Now our playful leader Stran continued his catio playtime by approaching me. I was having a quiet nap in the sun and was a little startled to be woken up.
I was a little defensive - even though I know Stran would never attack me: we are also bestest buddies.
But I could see his playful eye and decided to retreat a little.
I responded with a stern look of my own.
 And then thought I better retreat behind the Rock of Norway for safety!
For loyal readers who do not know about the Rock of Norway, it is a huge lump of rock which Äiti bought back as trophy from her treks across Finnmark. After driving for hours across the barren tundra of northern Norway, she found an amazing quarry of green marble and decided to steal some. Now it is an important part of the catio geography and I frequently mark it as my territory - just because I can.

Looks like an even cat-stand-off.

Thanks for explaining The Rock of Norway. Mommy has oftened wondered about it.

Looks like Stran is going to exhaust all resources for his entertainment purrposes. Who will be his next target?

Not very many of us has a rock of our own! But you do! Treat it well and it treats you well.

You are lucky to have your very own rock to pee on and to retreat behind.

Me again! I just watched while Aiti had to share her lunch with you. I think it was Stran and Sampo. Another looked white but had a beige tail so I think it may have been the sun hiding the colour of a ninja.

Flynn said...

No, whoever it was just jumped down from the table and the tail is white too.

King Punapippuri, do you realize that your kingdom is expanding? Brilliant plan to send your commando Aiti to invade Norway. Now, a part ( a rock) of Norway is marked as your territory!
