Happy Easter!

On Palm Sunday it is a tradition here that young children knock at the door, dressed as witches, and wave decorated budding branches around, chanting weird incantations. When given chocolate they disappear and no lasting spells are cast. And we get to play with the switches.
And if we are lucky, kill them!
So that was last weekend. We also got a lovely parcel from Ruska's sister Raisu in Finland (South). Seppo has no rights to it, but was in there first. We absolutely love these parcels and are very grateful for the family bond!
And there were many paws around the toys.  
No one messes with the Nekkid Boy when he is intent on his kissanminttu.
Now if only he could evolve some thumbs - those paws and claws are incredibly nifty.
Happy Easter everyone! Iloista pääsiäistä!

Happy Easter! We have no traditions around here, not even ham, like a lot of other U.S. households seem to have - more's the pity for us cats.

Those paws and claws *are* nifty, but I get all misty and nostalgic at the sight of his brim-full little sac almost brushing the floor back there.....ah, those were the days....

Mum and I have been watching you playing in the catio with Aiti and a wand toy. I see Seppo is wearing his sweater to keep him warm. It looks like you have a nice sunny day there. It is cold and wet here today.

What a pawsome tradition for kitties that love wand toys!

Love seeing Seppo enjoy the bounty :)
