Stop Press Saturday

Loyal readers from Oulu, please read and pass this on! 
Yesterday Äiti was driving home, eager to see us and announce the start of the autumn holiday (yay!) when she saw a black cat crossing the road. This was a main road, and a lost looking cat. Now this is a rare sight here in Finland(North) as cats are kept indoors. Äiti pulled over and was very glad the kitty safely crossed the busy road. She did a U-turn and pulled into the road where the cat was. She spoke to her and shewalked away, but soon thought maybe she should come over to Äiti.  She had lovely thick fur and was clearly a kitty who had a home, somewhere. Äiti put her into the car, and drove around the neighbourhood a bit to see if anyone was out looking for her. No luck! So, she got her home and called ystävämme eläinlääkäri.  The lovely girl stayed in the car but as the temperature was very chilly (it has been snowing), Äiti got her into a box and kept her in a locked room. I can tell you, we were eagerly waiting outside for a sniff and hiss! Anyway, later Äiti got her safely to Oulu Eläinkoti, the rescue home. We really, really hope that she will be reunited with her human(s) so please pass this on. It is on facebook to, so do share.

So now we have a week with Äiti home. This is most excellent. However today she has abandoned us. And it's really weird as the car is outside and she has gone On A Train. This is most bizarre. Especially as she has taken Sampo's carry box with her.........  Sampo, however, is still here. We are puzzled, and perhaps a little worried.

OMC! Taken the carry box but no Sampo in it??? This does not bode well for the rest of you, but we are very excited!

Nyt jännittää!

Is Sampo getting a girl friend? Or at least a one-night stand?

I hope that kitty's humans are able to find him!

Your Aiti is a heroine to that little girlcat! We hope her People come to find her very soon--actually, we think you are lucky that girlcat did not end up on your Catio, MOL!

Although, speaking of such things....what cryptic hints you drop, King P!?

Very, very strange about the box and the departure by train. Do keep us posted!

We are crossing all paws that the little girl finds her owners soonest.

Purrs,
The Chans

The poor lost kitty. So frightened, so sad. How she must long for a home.
We'll pray that she just ran away and will be quickly found rather than thrown away and left waiting for her family who will never come.
The Case of the Empty Case... Lots of possible solutions do we'll just wait and see. (Is there a girl kitty involved? Is you Aiti wanting to hear the patter of little paws in the house?)

We hope Ms. Kitty is home right now!!

Äiti's package is going out this afternoon, and there's a wee giftie inside it for "The Mystery"!!! Our clever Mommy made sure of it.
