Madness Monday

We thought we would show some Mesi pictures. Here she is playing with Sampo's favoutire red pipe cleaner - and of course he lets her.
She is showing off her tummy - well healed and furless. She has recovered and is racing around all over the place.
And when she demands it, she gets a snuggle from Uncle Sampo.
It is hard to resist her - she is truly skilled in the art of manipulation.
And yes, that really is a picture of a bird having a poo, Mesi - nothing is sacred when it comes to Äiti's photography.
And as if that wasn't madness enough, we are utterly shocked to announce that Äiti has signed up for the most stoopy thing we can think of (well, almost). She has registered for the Bristol to Bath marathon  .  She's insane. Even she admits it. A half-marathon last year wasn't enough, so in she's hoping in October she'll be in her old 'haunt' of Bristol (and where all the Britcats were born), catching up with pals and then running in the race. Well, we hope she has checked the map: it is flat as a pancake here where we live and she seems to have forgotten the very steep hills back in the West of England.

Äiti is quite ambitious! Maybe Mesi with all her kitten energy has inspired her. I know that the way I run around the house inspires Binga and Boodie! My human already runs around too much, although I don't see a marathon in her future - a 5K maybe, but she prefers dancing.

Mesi has indeed charmed us all!

Kudos to Aiti on her decision. We hope that madness doesn't make its way to our house.

Happy Monday, furriends!
XOXO

Pee Ess - that bird pic is great and captured purrfectly.

I'd only run a marathon if bacon was at da end.

Runnin around has got to be about the best symptom of health!

Sampo is a very good uncle to Mesi. Good luck to Aiti with her marathon.

Jenna said...

Mesi is so cute! No wonder she always gets her way.

The human thinks Aiti's picture is funny. We also think Aiti is crazy to run a marathon ;-)

Kari said...

Oh no! Who will take care of you when yourAiti is away? It wonderful that she is fit enough to run a marathon but who will cater to your every need with such devotion?
Mesi is truley irresistible! . That dear little face and this furs ..captivating!

Glad Mesi is healing well. Your mum is way up on ours. It would take her a week to walk a marrython.

I love Mesi's markings, she's such a striking kitten and will be an absolutely beautiful adult cat.

Good luck with the training for the marathon Aiti. I have siblings who love to run...one told me recently that running is the opposite of drinking alcohol. With alcohol one starts out feeling happy and ends up feeling lousy, with running, one starts out feeling lousy and by the end feels incredible. I've never gotten past the feeling lousy part.
