Tuesday Tussle

So, in yesterday's post we left you with the cliff-hanger of Jura whacking Pekka-poika. Of course this resulted in an olympic tussle. Pekka immediately retaliated with a body press.
Jura twisted himself out of this mighty squash.
With a bit of tugging and a lot of momentum he twisted himself round.
 But Pekka can throw his weight around,
Jura is going to get squished again,
But he starts to rotate (we wonder if he has considered break-dancing).
And now he twists more.
But Pekka's experience wins out.
The ninja is flat on his back, back legs waggling in the air.
Those legs can be dangerous though....
Pekka's face says it all.
And so he slams Jura to the deck again.
Now it's Jura's turn to pull a face.
Pekka has gone for his throat (remember, this is play!).
Look at those flattened ears!
And now Jura has freed himself and it's his turn to flatten his ears.
All this fun from just a bit of nip. But as you can imagine, it didn't end there.

Hurty paw update:  loyal readers, I thank you for your concern regarding my injury from the Battle with the Half-tail. Well, I can report it was not a bitey (as if I would get bitten on my back paw, which would indicate I was running away from the fight -pöh!) but is in fact the dreaded naughty kneecap. Yes, I have a luxated patella. Äiti was dreading this and had realised from the way I have been walking, that this was probably the problem. Ystävämme eläinkääkäri had said it was unlikely as naughty kneecaps are rare, and now we have had  FOUR in perheeni (Aila and I have both had two each).  We hope that ystävämme eläinlääkäri has managed to slip the kneecap back in place and provided I don't jump or run around, it should stay there. I really do not want surgery again.  No way - that was a terrible experience. So I have to stay calm in the next few weeks.   Of course, this injury was from a brave and mighty leap up to a towering cat tree to challenge Risto Puoli-häntä (Äiti's note: it probably happened when you fell off the cat tree with your paws and claws wrapped round the poor boy).  So apparently I have to stay away from Risto as I still like to stare at him to let him know I am boss. He doesn't agree with me.......

Oh NOOOOOOO!!!!! Puna-Chan, not two naughty kneecaps! Felix hurt himself falling, too. All we can suggest is copious amounts of food and nip to keep you all sedated.

Puna, Puna, Puna. You I think you were born to be a lover, not a fighter.

Paws crossed your knee behaves while you are healing, Puna!

Paws crossed for that naughty knee. We think the copious amounts of foodables and nip is a GREAT idea. MOL!

Upon observation of the tussle pics, we can tell that the ninjas are still mostly made of rubber!

Absolutely magnificent action photography!

Puna-Chan, do be good for a little while. Worth the sacrifice if it keeps the surgeon away.

yesh PPP!
Sorry 'bout your leg. Hope you don't need any surgery. I cross my paws and trust to Ystävänne eläinlääkäri. I know that she is excellent vet and she have amazing skills.

And Risto perskules, shame on you. King is untouchable!

What excellent wrasslin'! Maybe some help in the future to those high spots? We hope you won't need surgery.

I just love to see the fabulous action shots that you capture. Brilliant. I so hope you rest that knee and that surgery is not needed. Hugs GJ xx

That was a great wrassle. Jura is so elastic!
Puna I hope you go very gently and you don't need surgery on your knee.

A brave tussle! It seems Jura is gettin better at Ninja action, though. He is still standin while outweighed, um 6(?) kilos ta 4(?). But it WAS play, of course.

Wow, we are sorry ta hear about all the pixelated knees...

MOWZERS Puna - we call that injured in the Line Of Duty and you should get Hazardous Duty Pay (requiring copious amounts of NOMS and TREATS and NIP).

Seriouslies, surgery sounds SKEERY so just hang low for a while, 'k?
