Feel Good Friday

Over the last week or so many of us have been seeking extra lap time and cuddles with Äiti. She thinks it is because we need to check with her all is well, and it's part of us (and her) getting used to life without our Top Cat. There are tussles too, as we mancats are trying to sort the hierarchy, but has all been good natured (so far). Now Sampo is one mighty mancat and a Contender for Top Cat and he has certainly been trying to gain favour with Äiti - it is, afterall important for the boss to have a special relationship with all members of the household.
Yes indeed, Sampo is tarting away. His claws are out as he kneads away at the air. This pose is hardly very mancatly, but at least he wasn't dribbling.
However, I will not argue this with him - although I know I have a very special bond with Äiti, Sampo could still whap me really hard and slap me down the hierarchy, so it's best not to disagree with him.
We think it will take a while for the dynamic to sort out, and Äiti is monitoring things carefully. She, afterall, is ultimately Boss - well, she likes to think so......

The hiwrarchy adjustments will be innerestin ta watch. Things are SO much simpler here. I, Marley, am Alpha Male. Iza is Alpha Female. Ayla is Princess of the Domain. No one seems quite to be Top Cat.

If it came down to it, I COULD be but I dont really care, Iza WANTS to be but cant actally make me do anything, and Ayla can manage TBT better than us.

WHO will be Finland (North)'s Next Top Cat? Sounds like a great reality show.

BTW, I think Binga was bummed out when I showed up... her opportunity to be Top Cat here immediately got ruined.

Like The Mighty Stran, Sampo is more a lover than a fighter. We think that's a good thing in a Top Cat.

We think he's more lover than fighter, too.

These sorting things take time. We wish you much luck, love, and patience.

Happy Friday furriends.

It will be interesting to see who eventually does become top cat. Shouldn't that position go to the King of Finland (North)?

We are so sorry, we are just catching up, so we just read about Stran. What a loss you have suffered. It is something our mom has experienced, and she understands. We are sending extra purrs to you, although it looks as though you have many purrs going on there. Our mom's sister just lost her kitty of 18 years, and she is very sad also.
Hugs

There is only two of us, we are still sorting out top cat. Depends on the day.

Whoever it is, I hope they've been well tutored by the wise and wonderful Stran. He was an amazing fellow. We'd love to see his legacy carried on.
