Sampo's first snow

About a week ago we had our first snow. It has melted away now but Äiti caught some photos of snowflakes.
And Sampo had his first experience of the snow.  Now the light was poor, but we like the fact you can see the blurry movement as he flicked his paws.
And, yes, this is included in our 'Tocktober theme! Sampo here throws back his paw and gives us all a flash!
 He wasn't sure what to make of the snow but stayed out for a while. 
He's pretty brave for a burmese, trekking across the wilds of the catio in the subzero temperatures.
Just as well really as there's a few months more of it to come!

We are surprised he had anything to flash in those frigid temps. MOL!

His beautiful coat and the snow makes a lovely contrast. We love the new header, too.

Happy Sunday! xoxo

Yep, that is going to be a familiar sight for all you kitties for quite a while! Sampo is quite brave to be out there!

On aina hieno hetki, kun nuori kissa näkee - ja kokee - lunta ensimmäisen kerran! :-))))

Sampo is very brave to go out into the cold. Brass balls and monkeys came to mind when I saw that snow.

Brrrrr! We don't like it when it gets cold so we think little Sampo Is very brave! Aiti's snowflake photo is so lovely. The little bald boy can see
them through the window.
Our mum watched a show about
hairless cats and it said that the little
ones need the same amount of clothing on as humans do. From the look of your weather, Aiti better get the knitting needles out.

Sampo is very gutsy!

Love the photo of the snowflake.

He is a brave ManCat with plenty of sisu to go out there with so little furz to protect him. He really must have brass ones!

BRRRRR, just looking at that white stuff. We know that it will be here sometime, we just hope not too soon.

Faraday: Dood! Pawesome display of fearless courage (and we'd expect nothing less from the mighty burmese!)
