Please stand for the Friday Fanfare!

A fair while ago, we learned the sad news that Juuso, King Kitty Cat of Finland (South) had  made his final journey to the Bridge. Now, the matter of succession has been raised with me many times by the power hungry twitchy paws of Spitty, over in California. And there was no way that I was going to allow any invasion of the fine swamps, forests and lakes of Finland by him. My mind has been full of the search, and whether the responsibility was mine to sort ?  I had a strong connection with Juuso - his human is the grand-daughter of the kind people who rescued me as pikku pentu from Muhos fields when I was starving. There could not be another king to follow him.
So, my heart has been heavy until I was surfing through Feedly and the answer was blingdingly obvious. How could I not have seen it before ? Loyal Readers, I have had an epiphany. The Oracle spoke to me.  I was trembling with pride and joy when I read the New Year's Message of a favourite blog of mine, written by the most wondrous Helmi. Yes, indeed, the answer was clear. There will be a QUEEN Kitty Cat of Finland (South). 

May I present to you Queen Helmi Orvokki Naukula.  She is a most attractive ginger girlcat. She is a superlative royal and even has a little tiara.

 Long Live the Queen!

And to follow her adventures, Loyal Readers, you will have to learn Finnish! Just like Äiti is trying.

Kiitos - Thank you Pikku Punapippuri! Odottamaton kunnia on kohdannut Naukulaa (Unexpected honor has come to Naukula). ♥

King Spitty, we know you have long wanted the crown of FInland (South) , completely inappropriately we might add, but claiming Helmi is a fiction! Pöh!!!!

Hail hail the Queen! She is very royal indeed.

Zepa said...

PS. I hope everybody knows already that 'Helmi' means 'Pearl' and Orvokki means 'Violet'. She is a very international lady.

Jenna said...

Yes, a queen! The girl cats get some authority in Finland (South) :)
