The New Arrival

So, Loyal Readers, SHE has arrived. Meet Mesi. No, not Messi who is currently kicking footballs into goals. This is Mesi, which is Finnish for nectar. And also, her pedigree name is Melodia, and Äiti says she has sisu, so Me + si = Mesi.
She does indeed have sisu. She is a little miracle. She was Number 6 whom nobody dared hope would survive.  Her breeder never gave up. Apparently her greedy brothers kept pushing her away from the milk bar and her breeder kept moving her back - for hours and hours. She was a tiny weight at birth, 43g, and even now is small. She was born on March 8th. But - of course - she has character by the bucket load. This girl will be Trouble. But right now, Lewis is enchanted. He met her first as he was in the bedroom when she arrived. The rest of us were shut out! Pöh.
Stran was allowed in next. Of course you can guess his response.
And within half an hour he was snorgling her. Stran loves kittens as you know. He has done this with Aila, me, Jaava, Jura and Sampo.
And undoubtedly Mesi is sweet.  What kittens are not sweet. And I was gently sniffing her before I realised what I was doing and then I hissed!  Here is a link to a video of Jura meeting her - he was very friendly. Jura is her great uncle, and Sampo her uncle.
In the meantime I am sulking and making Äiti feel very guilty. She deserves it.

Mesi sounds like a very special kitty! But yes, being a tortie girl, you may have to watch out for her!

P.S. My human was utterly enchanted with the video of her.

She is adorable! I love the video too. She is very bold and it seems Jura can't understand why she is more interested in the toys than playing with him.

She is simply stunning!

We're sure that hiss was just a mistake or maybe it was a little air escaping from the other end! MOL!

Concatulations!

Oh squeeeeee! Squeeeees all the way round! Squees for the beautiful little girl who "declared herself" and defied the odds and lived! And for allowing Lewis to be the first to meet her. And for dear Stran whose love and concern should be bottled and dosed to human fathers! Yes, squeeee all the way round! It is a Very good day!

WElcome Mesi! We had to go look up from the list of works what sisu meant. After hearing your story we agree, you are sisu!

We are sure you will have all of the gang loving you really soon. We like your cute little white eyebrows.
